    Hello Everyone,

    I love using computers in the classroom! I have found several awesome sites, but my favorite are sites that track student progress. I like to be able to see what they worked on for the day and how they did. The areas that they are doing poorly in, I create mini lessons for small group instruction. Below are some that I have tried. What are your favorite finds? I am interested in hearing about sites that are free but also those great ones that cost money. If they look great, I will ask my school board to purchase them. Thanks!

    FREE site for tracking basic math facts:
    xtramath.org

    Basic math facts- with a cost:
    themathfacts.com

    FREE site for tracking typing progress:
    typingweb.com

    FREE ONE YEAR TRIAL for reading and math:
    adaptedmind.com

    My students have only played around with adaptedmind for a few days, but we both seem to like it better than ixl. adaptedmind goes at the student's pace and has videos from khanacedemy that teach concepts. I mean who really reads the explanations in ixl? They are boring! I'm not completely in love. I just heard about mobymax. I want to try it out next.

    FREE TRIAL:
    IXL.com

    My class also tried the free trial of readnaturally.com. WE HATED IT! I am really looking for a good reading program online that helps with comprehension and fluency.

    I look forward to hearing about sites you have tried and love!

    I am assuming since over 100 people have viewed this thread, but no one has answered that no one knows of any?

    I have used xtramath, Math Board (on the iPad), and IXL. But I do most of my tracking with good ol' pencil and paper. Or rather, an excel file.

    Hmm, well I don't know of any free sites that track student progress, but I do really like I-Station because it shows specific areas that students are weak in and it offers a lesson plan for the teacher to follow with the student to address those issues. Now admittedly, I have never followed those plans because I am a bit snooty :rollseyes: and prefer to work with the reading specialist and my team, but I'm sure it would be helpful.
