The newly added instructional content, enhanced functionality, and real-time reporting make Mastering the TEKS Online an even more powerful tool for differentiating instruction for grades 3-8.

Now Texas educators have access to every lesson in Triumph Learning's best-selling series for grades 3-8, includingproven Coach and Buckle Down resources, giving instructors multiple selections to support individual learning needs—all indexed by TEKS standard, academic topic, and keyword. In addition, new graphic organizers, glossaries, and video tutorials offer further support for instruction.

With its robust data and reporting tools, Mastering the TEKS Online allows teachers to identify individual learning needs easily and, using the new Bookshelf feature, quickly access and assign any lesson from the print texts–regardless of the lesson’s standards alignment.

Ready-made tests are included and a build-a-test feature allows teachers to create original assessments. The Mastering the TEKS Online item bank features thousands of questions—a minimum of 10 per standard, and real-time data allows educators to analyze items and sort results in meaningful ways—by lesson, assessment, class, or student—providing educators the capability to track growth and proficiency.
