Student comments
•
“I like the fact that I can practice over and
over. And it tells me what I need to work on”
•
“It drives me nuts trying to meet the mastery
level so I can take my test. But then I do
better, so it’s worth it!”
•
“I appreciate the practice, and I’m not as
afraid of math now. I know what I do and
don’t know.”
*If the study plan isn’t set
up correctly, it won’t work
Thoughts from well!
Faculty
*We appreciate the finetuning & tracking; gives
student and faculty
feedback
*It takes time &
encouragement &
explanation to teach
students (and faculty!)
how to use it properly.
