ASSISTments Student Practice Problems

To give students additional practice, we recommend assigning our Student Practice Assignments.


You can find both practice assignments in the “Student Practice Assignments” section of our user resources.


Student Practice Assignment: The Basics of Working with ASSISTments allows students to practice completing an assignment. As they complete the practice assignment they will learn:

  1.  How to view their progress, including their score, number of problems complete, and the number of problems that remain
  2. What happens when they get a problem correct on the first attempt versus when they make multiple attempts
  3. How to answer different types of problems (multiple choice, short response and open response)
  4. How to interpret the feedback symbols they receive on each question


If students follow all directions, they will receive a score of 67%.


Students will also get a chance at the end of Practice Set 1 to view their own individual report (see example below).


Student Practice Assignment: Answering Open Response Questions allows students to practice answering open-response questions.  (Note: This is likely most useful for students in 4th grade or higher. Younger students will likely need more support). 


Students will experience responding with:

  1. Typed text
  2. An uploaded picture of their work done on paper
  3. An uploaded screenshot or image from a drawing tool
  4. Math symbols and expressions 
  5. A table


Each question contains embedded text directions as well as video tutorials to guide students as they learn.


The Practice Assignments are flexible to your needs in the classroom. You may choose to try them with students during class time to explain the differences with each question. Or, you can assign them to your students as independent work. 


Happy Practicing!
