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:
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:
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.
