Type to Learn has evolved over the last 10 years from teacher feedback
The classroom management features of Type to Learn was designed to easily allow teachers to group students based on ability, differentiate instruction through custom content, and easily see their classroom or individual progress. Type to Learn is now on its 5th version and has evolved based on the feedback from teachers.
Type to Learn allows teachers to easily manage students’ progress through the program. Standard and customized reports display real-time status of all students’ progress, scores, and areas of challenge. Teachers can trigger a diagnostic pre-test to reassess students’ abilities, move students forward or back in the lesson sequence, set an upper limit to the lessons a student can surpass, and manually select achievement goals, vocabulary levels, and design interfaces.
