Q: I have kids at different grade levels. How can I assign different activities to them? Do I need several subscriptions?
A: No, you can simply use our subgroups feature that comes free with all multi-student accounts.
Initially, every new account only has the Main group. This means that all students are assigned the same activities. If you have students from different grades or achievement levels, you can create subgroups. Each subgroup can have a different set of activities assigned to it.
For example, you can create a group called "First Grade" and assign Sight Words Level 1 activities to it. You can also create a group called "Second Grade" and assign Sight Words Level 2 activities to it.
You can assign every student to a subgroup that would be the most appropriate for her or him. You can also easily move students between the subgroups.
Q: Can I see results for every quiz ever taken by one of my students?
A: Yes. Every result is stored in our database. You can review students' results as soon as you sign in as a teacher or a parent.
