My students wanted additional practice using the computers in order to prepare for state assessments.

Product Use: I liked that my students were able to complete assessments independently, which gave me insight regarding what areas they needed additional practice. Furthermore, Lumos StepUp provided opportunities for review within the program.

What Worked and What Didn't: The assessments were aligned with state standards, gave students the ability to practice using the computers, & were easy to administer. I would have liked more formative assessments so that students could practice year-round.

I wanted more standardized practice or test prep questions that I could use for warm-ups or review.

Product Use: I selected different problems to use as warm-up or bellwork problems.

What Worked and What Didn't: I didn't find a way to have students go straight to lumos to do the bellworks, but I was able to use the questions on Socrative.

Supplemental practice was needed in the classroom. Used website to increase the rigor for my students. Wanted to provide practice similar to the CAASPP, along with more application problems.

Product Use: Students used materials as practice and group collaboration tasks. Sharing reasoning and strategies in completing the problems.

What Worked and What Didn't: What worked is the increased rigor, students really had to critically think out problems. What didnt work the platform for grading, adding and removing students.
