Coins are awarded to students for things they do on Whooo's Reading.

Coins can be spent in the Owl Shop to accessorize the student's Owlvatar:

In addition to the coins students earn on their own, teachers can award coins to students through the **Roster** page by selecting students and clicking **Award Coins** at the bottom of the page:

Below is a list of ways students can earn coins. The amount of coins awarded varies based on the type of action and on the level the student is at the time the coins are awarded.

The "**rank**" is the formula used to calculate the number of coins to award, and is based on the amount of coins that would be awarded for passing a quiz. With passing a quiz at a rank of 1.0, most other actions award fewer coins, at ranks like 0.5 or 0.2.

The "**limit**" is the number of times in a time period that coins will be awarded for doing that action. For example, coins are awarded for two quizzes per day. If more quizzes are completed in that day, coins will not be awarded. This is to encourage daily or frequent use of the program, since the best way to develop reading and writing skills is to practice both frequently.
