How I Use It
I do like the additional practice that Tenmarks is able to provide. Students seemed to be actively engaged with the program. The other thing that I liked was the complexity of the questions. They seemed to fairly assess what the students knew. By monitoring what the students complete as well as their percentage, I can more easily tailor instruction to meet students' needs.
I liked the varied nature of the questioning types. I also liked that you could assign specific strands to the students depending on what you had covered. I would have liked to have seen a scratchpad area for students to be able to do work as well. The other thing that may or not be beneficial is to have students receive feedback prior to completing their assignment. I would like to see more games and varied rewards as students finish each assignment. Even graphics or animations might be a welcome addition. I feel that this a worthwhile addition to the room. The use of the product should result in a higher understanding of these concepts from the students. Teacher can also pinpoint areas of need.
