As teachers, we know that our students’ attention span is shorter than ever. Our students want instant gratification and immediate feedback. However, we all know that it would be impossible to provide instant feedback to all students in the class. Well, that is not the only problem. Many of our students do not both to try the problem, and wait for the teacher provide the answers to the class. Perhaps, getting the students to try in the first place is one hardest task for us teachers.
The current CAASPP and other standardized tests require our students more than just bubbling letter, but they must write and explain their answer. For students who have not been required of the such rigor, they just type random text to skip the questions. During CAASPP testing, some students finish the test in less than five minutes.
To expose and train our students for such rigor, we have to find way to 1) force our students to put the in the effort and 2) provide students’ customized instant feedback 3) provide students’ individualized support.
With StreamlineED, we teachers can write specific feedback to scaffold our students to get the correct answers. Also, the customized instant feedback will keep our student entertained.
