Freckle Math Practice (whether Adaptive Practice, Targeted Practice, or a Benchmark Assessment) aims to provide students with diverse question types. In doing this, we believe that we can better assess student understanding and speak to student abilities. We also acknowledge how important district and state-wide testing is, and therefore, we have built our program to mirror many of the question types students see on these tests (think SBAC, PARCC, etc.).
So.. what types of questions will your students see on Freckle? Let's take a look.
Question Type #1: Multiple Choice
Multiple choice questions ask students to pick ONE correct answer (listed at the bottom). You'll notice there is no "Submit" button on these questions. Simply clicking on an answer will submit it as the answer.
Question Type #2: Multiple Answer
Multiple answer questions may have one or more than one correct answer (listed at the bottom). You'll notice that for these questions, there is a "Submit" button at the bottom right. Students must select the correct answers by clicking on them, and then hitting "Submit" when ready.
Question Type #3: Type-in
Type-in questions require students to actually type their answer into a text box. Only numbers can be entered into the text box. If the answer to the question, for example, is 20 square feet, students will just type "20" into the box. Once a student is ready to submit his or her answer, he or she can press the "Enter" button on the keyboard. (Note: There are no type-in questions for K-1st grade).
Question Type #4: Drag & Drop
Drag and drop questions require students to use the computer mouse (or their finger on an iPad or tablet) to actually drag answer choices and drop them into "buckets." When students believe they have sorted all of the answer choices correctly, they can press the green "Submit" button. (Note: There are no drag and drop math questions for K-1st grade).
Remember: All questions in grades K-5 have audio that can be read aloud to students!
