Note to teachers: We recommend making a copy of and modifying this letter to reflect the specific way(s) in which you will use ASSISTments and how you prefer students answer open response questions. Within the letter are bolded areas suggesting where to modify.
I’m writing to tell you about a new online tool we will be using in math class this year. ASSISTments,
ASSISTments is a free tool that students will use to complete math homework and classwork online. While your child completes math problems in ASSISTments, they will get immediate feedback about whether they got the answer correct, and I will get detailed, actionable data to support them.
Key Things to Know as a Parent:
If you would like to see how students interact with ASSISTments, take a look at the student tutorial videos found here.
As a non-profit organization, The ASSISTments Foundation and developers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute follow U.S. government standards to ensure that student data remains unidentifiable.
If you or your child have any questions about ASSISTments, please do not hesitate to reach out.
We are excited to begin using this tool, as it will support math learning in our classroom. Please let me know if you have any questions.
