How I Use It
I use it as a supporting tool, to the classroom teachers lesson plan. This allows students extra practice with those skills. We also use it as a tool to prepare our students for the state testing. If they are scoring low in a particular area, we can give them the extra practice they need before the final testing.
My Take
This application gives a great explanation when the student does not get the question correct. The challenging part is making sure the student actually reads the explanation. I also like that they offer different grade levels. This really helps if you have an advanced or slow learner. It also has a great tracking system, which allows you to hold the students accountable for their work.
