activities, and reading assessments. Under certain circumstances, LevelUp also allows Students to create content. This content may include brief, written responses to questions about the content of books just completed as well as audio recordings of Students reading aloud brief text passages (running record assessments). Such content is submitted only to the Student’s teacher for review and grading, and it is not used by LevelUp for any other purposes. Students may make use of such features without providing any personal information. Wherever we collect student

it in strict confidence, and notify us of any unauthorized use of a
password or account registered under their subscription. Teachers are able to
monitor student activity through an educator dashboard that only
displays data for students their “class.” Student accounts do not allow
