Learning is extended from the all-new instructional lessons by 5 supporting practice activities. There is also a diagnostic pre-test and 6 formative assessments placed throughout the lessons. Assessments analyze students’ accuracy and speed, setting and adjusting achievement goals as the student improves. Lessons also track students’ accuracy and speed and assign immediate, individualized remediation where needed.
Teachers and parents will appreciate the real-time record-keeping, including progress graphs and reports on lessons, activities, and assessments. Teachers can analyze student errors by hand, finger, and key to pinpoint problem areas. A parent report, accessed from the student login, allows parents to track their child’s progress and scores throughout the program.
