ASSISTments eliminates the need for teachers to have to score each individual piece of homework by generating a report on each student’s progress and one for the entire class. The teacher then knows what problems need to be gone over again and what students might need extra help, Heffernan said.
“Having the ASSISTment platform and the data allows me as an educator to reflect continuously on my students’ progress and meet the individual needs of all my students. That is not something that can occur without... ASSISTments.” - Palmina Griffin sixth grade math teacher at Trottier Middle School in Southborough and ASSISTments user since 2011.
The program makes it easy to assign math problems and track her students’ progress, she said. Students can also track their own progress.
