First, make sure that you are logged in as a teacher. You should see the red "Teachers" button in the home page of the app.
Tap the red "Teachers" button to access the Teacher's Dashboard.
Then, tap the "Reading Level" menu next to the student's name:
The menu has 3 reading levels to choose from.
- Level 1-2 levels between a 400L-600L Lexile measure
- Level 3-4 levels between a 600L-750L Lexile measure
- Level 5+ levels between a 750L-1050L Lexile measure
Once the reading level is set, make sure to close and reopen the app on your students' iPads to ensure that changes take place. To do so, double tap the home button on the iPad and swipe the News-O-Matic app preview up to force it to close. When reopening the app, your students should have the correct reading level.
