NEW MATHSCORE ASSESS NOW AVAILABLE FOR CLASSROOMS
-- Only 20 Minutes for Online Tool to Provide Critical Understanding of Precise Skill Level for Student and Classroom --
PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 3, 2008 - Accurate Learning Systems Corporation today announced MathScore Assess, an online math assessment solution, providing educators with a rapid, precise assessment of student skill sets on the path to Algebra readiness.
Now for the first time, dynamic online tools that adjust to student skills help teachers quickly zero-in on exact skills mastered or requiring remediation. Average time required for a complete assessment is 20mins. MathScore Assess also provides direct integration with the MathScore math practice environment for classrooms who subscribe to both.
"With the Mathscore Assess I can immediately look at the results as soon as the student is finished," explained Greg Martinez, sixth grade math teacher, Sunnyvale Middle School. "The great thing is the color codes help me identify strengths and weaknesses right then and there. It's quick, painless, and I don't have to give up a weekend to grade assessments!"
"Unlike a generic grade-level assessment, we created a tool that pinpoints the specific computational skills that each student lacks, regardless of grade level," explained Steven Yang, founder and CEO of Accurate Learning Systems Corporation. "MathScore Assess enables every teacher to quickly identify skills that need work, to test progress along the way, and to measure progress at the end of the year."
MathScore Assess identifies each student's strengths and weaknesses on core computational skills that are critical for future Algebra I success. Its dynamic tests adapt the problem difficulty based on student performance, allowing teachers to quickly determine precise skill proficiency. Recommended for every teacher from 4th grade through Algabra I, MathScore Assess helps steer the teacher approach for each individual student, and helps inform the approach to the class as a whole.
"Although MathScore is already proven to raise test scores, we expect even greater test score increases from classrooms that use MathScore Assess," Yang continued. "The reality of today's math climate is that algebra teachers need to know if their students can manipulate fractions, factor numbers, or even just multiply. Teachers readying their students for Algebra can quickly diagnose core skills and remediate students and move forward with confidence."
MathScore Assess also specifically automates math topic recommendations within MathScore for the most efficient, integrated assessment and practice system available on the market today. Teachers can easily track progress of the recommended topics and re-assess their students at any time. Test topics include addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, long multiplication and long division, fractions, and percentages.
MathScore Assess is available to all MathScore subscribers, or as a standalone subscription. MathScore, the flagship product, helps students become better at math by providing unlimited, adaptive math practice. Developed by MIT graduates, MathScore is proven to raise test scores and trusted by schools and individual families worldwide. MathScore is appropriate for first grade through Algebra I. MathScore Assess' integration with the MathScore practice environment provides automated remediation, enabling efficient differentiated instruction with minimal teacher effort.
