Exercise Preview

When exercises are dragged into the deploy space, a window appears so that teachers can preview the exercise to be deployed.


Here, teachers can view student results on any or all cloze reading exercises. The system keeps track of the number of times the exercise was completed, the time spent, high score, and average score. Teachers can also graph student progress . Teachers can also click on the "Details" link to find out which words students answered incorrectly, and the percentage of students from the same class who answered each question correctly.

Student View

When you deploy a cloze reading exercise to students, this is what they see. Here, two exercises have been deployed. When a student clicks on one, he or she can start the exercise as seen below.

Word Bank

The Word Bank is a neat feature that allows students to "collect" as many vocabulary words as possible. When a word is used correctly the first time in a cloze reading exercise, it is labeled as such in the word bank. Words that were not used correctly the first time or also labeled.
