program we use in the lab is called Compass Learning
Odyssey. The program includes exciting graphics,
interactive animation, creative sound design, and hands-on activities
that engage students and envelop them in unique learning
The program can identify students strength and weaknesses.
Based on initial assessments, Odyssey automatically assigns a
learning path for each student. Quizzes and other
assessments embedded in the activities provide ongoing feedback
into student progress.
Colorful, dynamic and age-appropriate graphics and audio are
combined with explicit instruction and examples to create a
student friendly learning environment. Students have
multiple opportunities to grasp a concept.
Your child can also use it from home with their password.
You can get this off of their teacher.
We have a second lab that is used
for research, writing assignments and special projects.
There is a Clifford program installed on the computers
that the kids enjoy doing. It does not have a set schedule
like the main lab. The teachers can sign up when ever they
want some extra computer time for their students.
We do Star Reading Test four
times a year. It is a computer adapted test.
Students choose the best word to complete a sentence. Star
determines student's instructional reading level. The test takes
on an average of 10 to 15 minutes. Its a useful measure in
assessing students progress during the year.
