How I Use It
I used it for small group instruction. Having students set you as their coach can be a little confusing at first, the process is not very intuitive. Once students assign you as coach you get weekly reports on their progress. You can check their skill development in color codes. This visual report makes it very easy to see a student's progress. Students enjoy the missions and earning badges for practice and topics completed.
My Take
I would recommend it as a teaching tool. The pretest is comprehensive and starts out students where they are really at versus forcing them to start at grade level regardless of educational gaps.
