Automated and Adaptive Placement Assessment
How can one program work for every child? Smart Tutor’s adaptive, online placement exam initially assesses your child’s strengths and weaknesses and automatically creates an individualized learning program tailored to your child’s unique educational needs.
If your child answers many of the questions correctly, the questions automatically become harder. If your child inputs wrong answers, the questions automatically get easier. This allows Smart Tutor to accurately determine your child’s ability levels and create a customized learning program, on a sub-grade and sub-skill level, personalized for your child’s success.
At the click of a start button your child can begin learning at his or her own pace and on his or her own path!
- Struggling students that are performing below-grade level work on the skills they need to build proficiency and perform successfully at their grade-level and beyond.
- Students performing on-grade level engage more deeply in the skills they need to excel beyond their current grade level.
- Advanced students that are already working above-grade level also work at their own pace and on their own path, motivated by the extra challenge of continued advancement.
Individualized, Interactive, and Engaging Instruction
After the initial exam is complete, the system queues up your child’s individualized lessons and serves them up in a seamless interface on a lesson by lesson basis for both math and reading. For example, if a 2nd grade student is strong in Phonics, but weak in Reading Comprehension skills, Smart Tutor will start them off at a higher level in Phonics and a lower level in reading comprehension, based on his or her unique educational needs. Smart Tutor does this for each skill in reading and math; which means your child receives instruction that is truly personalized, without the cost of a high-priced tutor!
Smart Tutor’s non-threatening and engaging educational games and stories make learning fun for all ages. Our interactive lessons begin with explicit and interactive tutorials, followed by a review activity and finally a graded quiz. All lessons are research-based and align to state and national standards. Students remain productively engaged throughout the learning experience with real world examples, cartoon characters, interesting stories, exciting graphics, fun games, eye-opening simulations, powerful animations, and meaningful interactions.
SmartTutor’s instruction can make the difference in your child’s education by:
- remediating and building skill-sets
- raising confidence levels
- motivating students to want learn
- instilling critical thinking skills
- refining study and test-taking skills
