Missions boost learning with balance of focus and freedom to explore
Pros: Mastery-focused missions set the pace for each student individually while continuous assessment gives teachers valuable real-time data.
Cons: Video instruction may be too fast-paced for some learners; a fair amount of instruction is only delivered via text with few illustrations.
Bottom Line: A solid resource for math and science instruction as well as foundational knowledge in a number of other high school subjects.
