About the Lesson

The TI-Navigator system provides immediate feedback to students, the classroom teacher and even parents; the immediacy of feedback is extremely powerful. Send the assessment file to students, allow them sufficient time to complete then collect. Navigator will correct and analyse all the student responses. The review space can show the collective class responses allowing teachers to focus revision on problematic questions and target future learning. TI-Nspire users without a Navigator system can change the question type to self-assess and then distribute via the transfer tool in the TI-Nspire Teacher software. Student’s calculators will automatically identify whether the student answered the question correctly allowing students to see their progress. These files may be used in the classroom or set as homework. Even if you are not using TI-Nspire or Navigator you can print the single page, double sided PDF version of the test and use the answer sheet provided to correct student work.
