the amount of effort and industry research that has gone into
developing PracticePlanet, it's very rewarding to receive
this level of recognition," said Siboney Learning Group
President Bill Edwards. "PracticePlanet is poised to set the
standard among resources for helping students develop the skills and
confidence they need when they take state tests."
automated functions for assigning, scoring, and tracking tests and
practice activities make it possible for a teacher simply to
register a student and use the program's real-time reporting
component to monitor the student's progress. If the teacher desires
additional control, PracticePlanet provides a variety of
customizable parameter settings.
"We know test
performance improves with rigorous practice," Edwards added, "but we
are also aware of the concerns associated with test practice. Since
ease of use is a factor for teachers, we developed PracticePlanet to
be simple and intuitive. And since motivation is often a factor with
students, we also designed PracticePlanet with engaging features
such as its game play component, which is built to motivate success
and increase time on task."
