Problem solving skills builder for computerized, standardized tests

Overview

Reasoning Mind Smarter Solving is an online math assessment tool for students in grades 3-5. Students take practice Next Generation standardized tests and watch lesson tutorials while teachers monitor student progress and performance. Reasoning Mind Smarter Solving is available at per student user rates.

APPROACH

Teachers begin using Smarter Solving by creating an account, logging in, and following prompts to enter in all necessary student information. To complete the practice exams, students log in to their account and answer math questions similar to ones they would answer on a real-life Smarter Balance or PARCC exam. For incorrect answers, students are presented with a video tutorial lesson on that particular content. Once they arrive at the correct answer, they can advance through the rest of the practice exam.

From their ‘Teacher Dashboard’ teachers view reporting graphics on student progress and performance on individual Common Core content standards. Based on student performance, teachers then assign further individual assessments to students.

WHO’S USING IT

As of May 2016, over 10,000 students in over 100 schools are using Reasoning Mind Smarter Solving.

PRICING

Reasoning Mind Smarter Solving costs $23 per student, per year.
