Based on subscriber feedback, we have added some new features to the site. I will also take this time to answer a few common questions we have received lately.

Study Guide Dojo
Create custom, printable, student study guides with a few clicks of the mouse. These are ideal for tracking and documenting the remediation of your students.

Teacher Management System
Students previously typed in teacher email addresses to have activity and test results emailed. Now teachers simply add themselves to the system and their names are listed in a user-friendly pull down menu for students. No more lost results due to typos.

Section Quiz Results Now Stored
Due to popular demand, section quizzes are now stored on our database just like our tests. Students take an online section quiz and teachers may login and query by name, date, grade, student id, or teacher to find particular quiz results.

Quiz, Test, Progression Data Graph
When analyzing student data, you will now see a line graph progression by date. This will help you see trends graphically.

Q. When will you be updating content for new upcoming state tests?
A. We always update content before the first administration of any new state tests. Our internal goal is always to launch new review materials at least two months before the new test. We complete the lion’s share of our new authoring during Winter and Summer break.

Q. How do I report a question that contains an error?
A. Every one of our questions and vocab terms will have a link that says “Question/Term Feedback” after you have submitted your answer. We respond to all submissions within 24 hours.

As always, do not hesitate to call or email if you have any feedback or questions.
