Can a teacher set goals for students in AM IP?

Yes, AM IP users have the option to set goals based on points or average percent correct. It is recommended that teachers begin by using the Average Percent Correct goal option. For more information on this type of goal, see the Average Percent Correct Help file. After successfully implementing average percent correct goals, teachers may want to work with a Renaissance professional services specialist to consider how to best use the Math Points Goal as an additional student motivator. This goal type is still under development but for preliminary information, see the Math Points Goal Help file.

Do your students use Renaissance Responder or NEO 2 devices to score their Accelerated Math assignments?

In the upcoming release, the functionality of Renaissance Responder or NEO 2 devices to score math assignments will remain unchanged. However, if for any reason these devices stop working, they will no longer be supported and cannot be replaced. We will continue to support the use of the AccelScan for scoring and students may continue to log in using a web browser to complete their Accelerated Math assignments. (Accelerated Math Live teachers may also use the Keyboard Score feature.)

Do your students use Renaissance Responder devices to work in Math Facts in a Flash?

After your Renaissance site has received the latest product updates, the offline version of Math Facts in a Flash on Renaissance Responder devices will continue to function, but the online version will not. As such, working in Math Facts in a Flash RP via a Renaissance Responder device will no longer be supported and the devices cannot be replaced.

Do your students use NEO2 devices to work in Math Facts in a Flash?

After your Renaissance site has received the latest product updates, the Math Facts in a Flash applets on NEO 2 devices (both RP and Offline) will continue to function. However, if for any reason these applets stop working due to a subsequent product update, they will no longer be supported and the devices cannot be replaced.

Are you unable to see enrollment changes recently made in Accelerated Math Live, Accelerated Math 2.0, or Math Facts in a Flash?

Enrollment changes are verified and synced internally each night. After making any enrollment changes, such as adding a class, students, or a program, please note that those changes will become effective the following morning.
