The Digital Path features only practice exercises. It does not feature a Gradebook, homework or assessment creation tools, or a Study Plan.
MathXL for School is not just for high school math students. Teachers can now set up courses for their Grades 6, 7, and 8 math classes, no matter which textbook they are using, with the Create My Course option. This is a great option for students to gain additional practice during the school year, for intervention, or for summer school.
Monitoring StudentsDo I have to do anything for my students to access my MathXL for School course?
No. Students can register for MathXL for School, log in, and choose their school and the textbook used in your course to get started on their own. They can take sample tests and tutorials to do self-paced study. If you decide to create online assignments in MathXL for School, your students can choose your course in the Instructor/Course field, and their work will be tracked in your Gradebook.
1. Have students take a sample test to determine their strengths and weaknesses.
Teachers have this information in their Gradebook tool. Teachers can monitor the number of attempts and the time spent on each problem or assignment. MathXL for School can lock students out of a problem after any designated number of attempts to prevent guessing.
