Amelia/Emelia - have you tried Teacher Made Quizzes for Manga? I know schools have found success creating quizzes for them as they aren't on AR. You can also encourage pupils reading Manga to try their hand at creating quizzes too - they can't upload it, but it can be great to challenge their thinking and if you think it is a good quiz then it can be uploaded and they can be rewarded for their hard work.
Ruth Atkinson (she/her)

If you have any requests for books to be quizzed, whether they're Graphic Novel, Novel or non-fiction please submit them through the quiz request portal in AR and that will start the process into looking into quizzing them. This helps us gauge what are the most in demand quizzes.
Emelia
