From Charlotte –
Hey everyone! I came across this yesterday and am going to give this a try with my family to save time and make my math instruction more effective.
There is a program called My Math Assistant which automatically checks and grades Saxon math. I am going to to give it a try this year. It gives the student immediate feedback on whether they got their problem correct so that they are not practicing incorrectly.
This forces the students to seek help instead of just think “oh ok” and move on… because they don’t have the answer key in front of them to give them a false sense of confidence in their ability to do the problem. For those students who do not check their own work but rely on mom … it keeps them from having the excuse… “mom you didn’t have time to check it, so I couldn’t move on, skipped it etc.”
It grades practice problems, mixed practice and tests. You can customize what students have to complete to move on.
They have a free trial so that you can try it out and the pricing is reasonable. If you participate in Classical Conversations there is a discount for the first three months (message me privately if that applies to you).
