Revolution K12 has released its new Geometry program
which diagnoses students’ issues with geometry topics in order to provide reports on student skill acquisition and deficiencies. If students continue to answer questions incorrectly, the system goes from standards-based questions to diagnostic questions to tutorials on skills.
Each of the 28 geometry topic areas begins by having students review a handful of Prior Knowledge Concept lessons, giving them a chance to solidfy their understanding of the geometrical concepts they should have learned in previous grades. Then students are presented with a series of Mentor Sessions where they are asked questions pertaining to the core concepts in the topic area. If answered correctly, a new, more difficult question is presented. If answered incorrectly, students receive a series of diagnostic questions that break down the problem-solving process of that concept into manageable parts.
