Library
You can choose the titles you want to do the reading activities for in Library.

The titles are categorized into four main groups based on your reading history: All, Incomplete, Try Again, and Completed.
* All: shows the list of all titles
* Incomplete: shows the list of titles that have not been completed
* Try Again: shows the list of titles that need to be tried again
* Completed: shows the list of completed titles

Then, you can sort the titles by Round, Rating, and Popular and then further divide them into Fiction and Non-Fiction.
* Round: sorts the titles in order
* Rating: sorts the titles by preference
* Popular: sorts the titles by the number of completed reading activities

The inquired list of titles can be downloaded in an excel file by clicking the [Download Excel] button at the bottom of the page.
e-Book, p-Book, Collection
The titles are classified into four groups: e-Book, p-Book, and Collection.

e-Book shows the list of titles for which both stories and quizzes are available online. Stories are supported in electronic books for a convenient online format. There are self-developed contents, the Encyclopedia Britannica, and books from publishers in various countries. They offer professional illustrations, an audio recording of the story by professional native English speakers, and step-by-step after-reading quizzes.

p-Book shows the list of titles for which only quizzes are available online. The quizzes are for English books published by over 200 publishers around the world. Please note that the stories are not available online.

Collection shows the list of all titles in collections categorized by series, theme, or movie.
Activity > To-Do
The titles you have selected in Library can be found in Activity > To-Do.

For the titles for which the corresponding quizzes have NOT been started, the [Start] button will appear; and for the titles for which the quizzes have been started, the [Continue] button will appear, and it is not possible to delete them.

You can add up to 50 titles to To-Do. The titles in To-Do will be automatically removed 60 days after the added date. Please make sure to complete the ongoing reading activities within 60 days.
Activity > Report
You can check the weekly and monthly status of reading activities and set your own learning goals.
History > Reading
You can view the list of the completed reading activities, scores of each step, and acquired points.

The default inquiry period is 90 days. But, you can change the inquiry period to check the history of reading activities for the desired period.

When you click the titles you have completed, you can find the [Review] button, which allows you to view the reading activities again without any limit on the number of viewings.

Please note that any reading activities done in the Review mode will NOT remain in the history or be counted for points.
* Your answers to quizzes you have completed within 6 months will be available for viewing. You can also check which questions you’ve got them right or wrong. However, you can confirm the right answers only when you have passed the quizzes.
* Your answers to quizzes completed more than 6 months ago will not be available for viewing.
History > My Level
You can check the required points per level for the level up and accumulated points per level. Once you fulfill the required points for the level up, you will be automatically leveled up to the next level.

In History > My Level > Level History, you can view the result of the level test and the level up history.
Points
The points for each title are indicated on all covers. Points are calculated based on the difficulty, the number of words, Atos level and other variables, for each title.

You can earn points when you pass the quizzes with an average score of more than 70.
Earn Points
You can earn points up to two times for each title.

For Level 1 or lower:
If you pass the quiz the first time you take it, you will earn 100% of the assigned points; and if you pass it the second time, you will earn only 40% of the assigned points for that title.

For Level 2 and above:
You can select Full or Easy mode. If you pass the quiz in Full mode, you will earn 100% of the assigned points, and in Easy mode, you will earn 40% of the assigned points.

* You have to get an average score of 70 or higher in order to pass.

* A thumb mark on the cover of titles in Library means that you have already earned points once.

* If you retake Step 1 as a result of receiving a score of less than 70, the final score will record the first score regardless of the second score.
Full Mode and Easy Mode
For the best learning outcome, there are typing activities in Step 2 and Step 4 for Level 2 or above.

However, Reading Gate offers two modes for younger students who are not familiar with typing yet and students who want to focus on reading a lot of books.
