Overview: below is a "launch letter" email template that you can send to your staff right before they start using Literably.

I'm excited to announce that starting on [insert date] we will begin using a new tool called Literably to help assess our students' reading levels. Literably is an online literacy assessment system that allows your students to take reading assessments from home via a desktop, laptop, or iPad. Literably's trained graders then grade each of your student's assessments and get the results back to you within 24 hours (results are delivered to you via email and updated on your Literably teacher dashboard). If possible, I'm asking that all teachers complete their first round of Literably assessments by [insert date].
