Teacher Spotlight: Cathryn Shupert

Cathryn starts every day with ASSISTments as bell work. Students complete 2 or 3 self-graded questions and then 1 or 2 short answer questions and she likes when her students explain their thinking because it helps her determine if they understand the content or if they're just guessing. The grading screen for open response questions in ASSISTments helps Cathryn to grade and provide feedback quickly.
