FAQ

kids math factsCan I have multiple children on one account?

No. Each child needs their own account/member name when accessing the program. The program is intelligent and tracking student's accuracy and speed for each problem answered. The program identifies each student uniquely by their member name when accessing their account. If multiple students use one account, the behind the scenes tracking for advancement and mastery will be inaccurate.

timed multiplication quizHow is mastery attained?

To develop mastery, the program will look for the student to get grades over 95% and within a certain amount of time. These factors are looked for overtime as students complete each type of problem.. If you feel strongly that your student has mastered a digit you can raise him to the next digit manually.  As soon as you raise your child’s current digit, the program will mark the previous digit as mastered.  The program will set up a review portion of his lesson to digits mastered so he/she will continue to get past digits mastered.  You can manually change your child’s lesson via the “Modify Lesson” button on the main menu.

If you feel the tolerance level for mastery is too high, you can raise your child’s grade level.  The program will have a higher mastery tolerance for younger users.  By increasing his grade level you will lower his mastery tolerance which will allow users to achieve mastery quicker.  You can raise a user’s grade level via the “Membership Information” page which can be accessed from the main menu ‘Membership Info.’ button (bottom of the screen).

Yes! The program will send email when your child achieves mastery, completes a quiz or needs additional help. You can also view your student's daily progress via the TimedMathDrills Progess Reports.
