Our inappropriate word filter is very extensive and continuously reevaluated. If one of the words in that filter is used by a site user, it will be blanked out with asterisks. We have three different vocabulary filters: one for Elementary School, one for Middle School, and one for High School. The High School filter allows for more mature words compared to the Middle School filter, which allows for more mature words compared to the Elementary School filter. This graduated system allows older students to discuss topics that arise in more mature reading material.
To choose a vocabulary filter:
- Log in to your teacher account.
- Click on My Account in the top right corner and select Account Settings from the drop-down menu.
- Next to Vocabulary Filter, click Edit.
- Use the drop-down menu to choose from Elementary, Middle, and High School filters.
