Here's How It Works

Reading Boxes

Reading Boxes

Within our libraries, our reading boxes organise readers for students and teachers in the same way readers would be organised within classrooms - by reading level or by phonics phases - and books can be selected and assigned to students or reading groups.


Support Materials

Support materials are provided for every reader including online comprehension quizzes, printable lessons plans, literacy activities, blackline masters, sequencing templates, discussion cards and printable take-home books, both complete and wordless. Assessment materials are also provided in the form of reading records.

Comprehension Quizzes

Comprehension Quizzes

Comprehension quizzes can be set as compulsory, optional or turned off altogether at the teacher’s discretion. Quizzes focus on literal, inferential and evaluative questioning.


Class Management

Teachers can manage their own class and set individual student reading profiles for school and home reading, easily editing settings such as reading levels, phonics phases, reading groups, access permissions and quiz and narration options.

Class Management

Reading Groups

Reading Groups

Wushka allows teachers to set up reading groups for independent and instructional reading for the students in their class. The teacher decides when students can access the groups - at school, at home or at any time. In a few steps, teachers can set up a new reading group, allocate the appropriate levelled readers and assign students to the group.


Class & Student Statistics

Ongoing reading statistics are available at individual student and whole class level and provide detailed insights into students’ level of interaction, comprehension and progression, both at school and at home. Via the statistics pages, teachers can see which readers students have read, how long they read for and what time they read. Detailed quiz results are also available for each student showing the score for each quiz and highlighting which questions they answered correctly or incorrectly. Quiz reports can be downloaded for each student, or the whole class.

Whole School Management

Whole School Management

The Literacy Program Coordinator has access across all classes so can monitor usage and engagement and track progress and achievement across year level cohorts. Program Coordinators can assign multiple ‘teachers’ to any class to enable literacy support teachers and aides to have access for small-group and one-on-one teaching.


Student Dashboard

The Student Dashboard is simple dashboard featuring the reading boxes and readers assigned to students by their teacher. The dashboard also shows readers students have completed and the results of their quizzes. Students log in to Wushka using the username and password provided by their teacher. Teachers can also log in for their students via the Teacher Dashboard.
