Setting a Level

Who can do this with standard capabilities?

School Network/Program Administrators, school administrators, Teachers

Before your students begin working in the program for the first time, you should (1) decide what level you want each student to start on and (2) assign those levels to the students.

After you assign (set) a level, the program automatically tracks the progress of the student. Use the Assignment Book to view the student's progress.

At any time, you can set a new level for the student to work on; the student does not have to master the previous level first.

The Benchmarks Set for Mastery Table shows the benchmarks set for your school. For more information, see Editing the Benchmarks Preference.

When students are enrolled in a MathsFacts in a Flash class, the program automatically marks (sets) the first level in the Assignment Book as Ready to Work for the students. When a student masters a level, the program automatically marks the student's next open level as Ready to Work.

If you assign a new level and the student is already working in another level (), the program puts the old level on Hold (). The student's work on the old level is not lost when a level is on Hold.

    4. When you find the level, select the circle next to it in the Select column.

      If the level that you want to select is not shown in the first group of levels, select Next >> to see the next group. Select << Previous if you want to go back.
