World Book Wizard
You have questions and World Book has answers. Find answers below to some of the most frequently asked questions about Wizard.
What is the difference between a teacher code and a class code?A teacher code is required to set up a teacher account. This tells Wizard to set up the account with a teacher dashboard and the ability to create classes and assignments.
The teacher code is the same for everyone in the district or library system and is provided by World Book. If you are not sure of the teacher code, contact your account admin or email email@example.com.
A class code is what students need to join a class. This is unique to every class and can be found on the individual class once it is created in your teacher dashboard.
What is the difference between a course and a drill?A drill is an exercise to practice material for a single subject. A course is a collection of drills on a subject. For example, Circulatory System is a drill that is part of the Human Body course. Both courses and drills can be assigned to a class, but courses will take much longer to complete than a drill. Keep this in mind when assigning content! Click here for a detailed list of available courses and drills.
Do the drills correlate to standards?Yes! Click here to view the standard correlations and more information about each drill/course. We currently correlate to Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standard's core disciplinary ideas.
Is there content for other grades outside of 5-8?We currently have content for grades 5-8 in the core subject areas, however we will be expanding content to add grades K-4 by August 2020. In addition to adding additional grade level support, we will continually add drills to all grades (K-8) over time, including 5-8.

What is adaptive learning?Adaptive learning is learning that adjusts to your speed and level. In Wizard, what you still find difficult is automatically repeated more often. Learning material you already mastered is repeated less frequently, which makes this learning customized and efficient!
What additional features will be added?We plan to continually add features so Wizard keeps getting better and better!
The following features will launch by August 2020:
- Teacher reports on individual student and class performance.
- Student view of their drill progress.
- Curriculum correlation filters.
- Teacher ability to make comments to individual students.
- Fun, assignable badges engage and prove subject and topic proficiency.
- Ability to assign different content to students within the same class.
- Content added for grades K-4.
- More courses, drills, and badges, which will be released on an ongoing basis.
