Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What if students have limited access to technology in school or at home?
Create longer term assignments for your students so that they can find the opportunity to complete the work within the allocated time.
What if my class is particularly weak?
Some teachers use a projector to walk-through concepts with their students in class before assigning the same concept for their students to complete outside of class.
What do I do if the system crashes?
Refreshing the page will fix most issues. Student progress automatically saves question by question so none of your students work will be lost.
How do I communicate progress to students or parents?
