BoxerMath.com, a web-based learning environment for teaching high school mathematics, has added a web interface called the Assignment Manager to its Ledger student management system, which monitors student performance and progress.
With Assignment Manager, teachers can create custom math assignments for a student or group of students, based on their test results, state standards, correlation to a textbook, or BoxerMath.com activities. The teacher can specify whether an assignment should add extra activities if the student appears to need more practice. Also, teachers can specify the order in which the lessons are done.
“The real benefit of the Assignment Manager,” says Seth Oldham, Boxer Learning vice president of product development, “is that it focuses student activity, permitting teachers to provide more one-on-one instruction.” Current BoxerMath.com customers will have access to the Assignment Manager at no extra cost.
