    I do like the program, and I focus on points more than grades. As another poster said, if a student is receiving low grades (at their range), then they simply need to pick up another book, which they obviously need practice with anyway. I have a fish with each student's name on it and they're swimming toward a 30 pt treasure chest. Their score out of 30 pts will be 10% of their reading grade. Not a huge deal. For a little extra motivation, I also compare other grade level classes (w/o class names) to see who's reading the most points. It's a simple, but effective, tool.
