Lite version only allows one student name to be logged and has 25 passages - 1.99 –paid version takes unlimited students and has over 250 passages for grades K-4. Lite version covers 9 levels of flesh-Kincaid readability – paid has 46 levels 0.0 through 4.7 Though I do not feel there is any difference in the reading level and K does not mean grade level. Student must be trusted to read to make sure that this works. Easy to cheat the system.
