Topic Questions

Assign formative questions to check student understanding as you teach each topic.

Assign topic questions:

  • Before you teach a topic, to assess prior knowledge
  • While you’re teaching a topic, to get immediate feedback on student learning
  • After you teach a topic, to get data on what students know and are able to do

Progress Checks

Unlock progress checks to assess student understanding of the topics and skills by unit.

Assessments measure knowledge and skills through:

  • Multiple-choice questions with rationales explaining correct and incorrect answers
  • Free-response questions with scoring information


Teachers may use the class report to develop lesson plans and focus on the topics and skills students should continue practicing. Students get feedback on their answers at the teacher's discretion.
