Reading Level Assessment does not have read-aloud sound. This module is intended to assess the student's independent reading level, and that means assessing their ability to read the passages without assistance. 

Students can always have the quiz questions and answers read to them by clicking the sound icon. You can turn off read-aloud sound for all students by following these steps:

  1. Sign into your teacher account, and click the "Roster" link in the left sidebar.
  2. Select the "Manage Roster" tab at the top of the page.
  3. Click the "Bulk update curriculum settings” link. 
  4. Select the students, and click “Update Settings."
  5. Under "Sound settings,” click the blue “Turn sound on or off for all modules” link.
  6. Adjust the settings and click “Save and Exit." 

You can also click a student's individual name on the "Roster" page to turn sound off for one student at a time.
