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 a student's typing accuracy and speed, setting and adjusting achievement goals as the student improves his/her skills on the keyboard. Lessons also track student 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 keyboarding 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 typing progress and scores throughout the program.
