As the kids have gotten older, I've realized that they needed to have computer skills. The courses they need to study are getting more high tech and more involved. I knew we needed to give Digital Savvy from CompuScholar a try!
You can choose between looking at the grade report for each student, a grade history for quizzes, and a single review for each individual lesson quiz. You can also look at and print out a user report which will calculate the students grade for the course. This is perfect for report cards and transcripts!
The kids had their student accounts to log into. Once the student logs in, they are presented with a page with a Digital Savvy logo on it. Students click on the logo and are immediately redirected to the Course Syllabus (or Chapters). The students then click on the appropriate chapter they are working through.
Once the Chapter page opens, students are then given the various lessons to work through. Students have a lesson video and a lesson text to look at. My kids watched the video first and then read the lesson.
The lesson pages can be printed up if your student would like to create a notebook for review or reference.
After doing both of those things them clicked on the lesson quiz. The lessons are graded immediately for the students. If they did poorly on the test, I had them re-watch the video and reread the lesson. I made it a rule that they must get a 90% or higher to be able to more onto the next lesson in the chapter. The quizzes can be taken 3 times. After the 3rd time, an average of the grades is recorded.
