Assessments

Vimme Learning has 30 weekly, cumulative assessments for grades one through eight. The pedagogy behind these assessments increases both skill retention and mental stamina. In addition, Vimme Learning assessments infuse rigor for all students. The assessment question format is continually changed as a skill is revisited. Thus, students are constantly required to apply what they know, meaning no skill is left behind.
Example 5th Grade Skill – Volume

1.  What is the volume?

2. A refrigerator is delivered. The refrigerator box holds 240 cubic feet. If the refrigerator is 8 ft. high and 5 ft. wide, what is the length?

3. How many 2 inch cubes would fit within a rectangular prism with these dimensions? height: 12 inches length: 8 inches width: 6 inches
 

Pacing Guides

Logical, weekly pacing guides are the road map for Vimme Learning’s math curriculum. As the curriculum progresses, the pacing guidesassures that prior skills are mastered and not forgotten. Vimme Learning’s pacing guides cover the key components for a strong math foundation, including:
1. No assumptions: Pacing guides cover skills from prior grade levels to assure a strong foundation.
For example:  Week 2, 5th Grade – Skill: Subtraction   (Not a 5th grade standard, yet some students lack mastery)

2. Logical design: The order in which skills are introduced is critical. The layout of Vimme Learning’s quizzes and homework helps achieve a required depth of understanding, where one skill builds upon the next.
 

Fact Fluency Game (Mathbots)

Math is made fun with the help of Mathbots, a fact fluency game students can play in school or at home. The game teaches reasoning as a way to learn basic facts.

For example: If students know 7 + 7 = 14, then they also know 7 + 8 = 15 (just one more)

Vimme Learning’s delivery of content for fact fluency is unique because it combines reasoning with learning fact families. The end result is fact fluency. 

 

Peer Coaches

Within the fact fluency game Mathbots, students will find inspiration from some powerful coaches: their peers! Student coaches are featured throughout the game, providing tutorials that help students master facts. Check out the coaches in action:

Real-Time Data

Valid data in real time is critical, especially when it is weekly and cumulative. Each key user account can utilize FERPA compliant data in beneficial ways:
Students and parents: Upon completion of a Vimme Learning assessment, students can immediately review their scored test question by question. Tests are live for 20 days, so parents can review, too.

Teachers: During testing, teachers are able to review in real time to determine which students require remediation. Plus, teachers can see if a large percentage of students seem to be struggling with a particular skill or question. Full testing results are available to review after the tests are complete as well.

Administrators: With access to all student data and classroom averages, principals are able to determine which teachers and students might need additional support. With data points from prior years, administrators are able to determine the progress of their student population from year to year.
