02:38 - Peggy George
metric driven is so important these days!

02:58 - Peggy George
Paula you can ask the newbie question

03:00 - Peggy George
:-)

03:07 - Suzanne Sallee
We have several teachers using Ten Marks on different types of devices - even iPod touches

03:14 - Peggy George
perfect!!

03:29 - Dotty
To prevent summer slide and reinforce skills learned.

03:32 - Suzanne Sallee
Good morning Peggy!

03:34 - Peggy George
That's great to know Suzanne!!

04:01 - Peggy George
we all know "if we don't use it, we lose it" :-) true for adults and kids!

04:54 - Peggy George
I hadn't realized that TenMarks was acquired by Amazon until I started exploring it this week. :-)

05:25 - Peggy George
it's so important that these kinds of quality resources are available to our kids for free!

05:58 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I remember when Amazon acquired TenMarks. I got nervous that the free part would dsiappear, but that didn't happen thank goodness.

06:16 - Peggy George
if you have any questions for Catherine as she goes through her presentation please type them in the chat and Lorie will ask them at the end of her presentation

06:28 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love the hints and videos that are part of the TenMarks interface.

06:29 - Peggy George

06:46 - Peggy George
you're going to want to sign up right away :-)

06:59 - Peggy George
that's a scary statistic! but true!

07:38 - Peggy George
so frustrating when you have to spend so much time at the beginning of the year reviewing/reteaching old information!

07:40 - @plnaugle (Paula)
The questions on TenMarks are well aligned to the CCSS and are rigorous.

08:21 - Peggy George
there will always be learning gaps but anything we can do to alleviate them that is great

08:38 - Peggy George
agree Paula! alignment to the standards is really helpful!

09:01 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I created a "dummy" student account and always did the assignmentsjust like my studnets did. Sometimes I got really low scores. LOL

10:32 - Peggy George
it's so helpful to be able to have pre/post assessments to check on progress!

10:38 - Peggy George
no questions yet Catherine

10:41 - Lorie Moffat
I have not seen any yet.

10:49 - dotty
I used the program with my special Ed students and it raised their test scores.

11:22 - Peggy George
this is a great review about the Summer Program: http://ritareviews.net/2015/06/summer-math-with-tenmarks/ (Summer Math Program review)

11:51 - Peggy George
Title I schools are low income schools (for those of you who are not in the U.S.)

12:26 - Peggy George
Hi Cody! Welcome!

12:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Using the TenMarks program will definitely prepare our students for taking the high stakes tests on computers.

12:51 - Peggy George
Are students likely to do this on their own if their teachers don't "assign" it?

13:06 - Peggy George
FREE!! the magic word!

13:32 - Dejan Kreculj 1
:)

14:12 - Peggy George
Last week Colleen King shared some fantastic math games and apps for students and these would be awesome supplements to TenMarks! Kids love them!

14:12 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I think if math teachers used TenMarks over the summer, they would be well prepared to teach math next year.

14:21 - Peggy George
Hi Virginia! Welcome!

Hi Peggy!

You will find all of the links for Math Playground as well as TenMarks in our June Livebinder :-) http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=1726427

16:08 - Peggy George
Parents would also benefit from participating in the program because it's probably been a long time since they used their math skills and they don't know how to help their kids at home.

17:50 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I learned about area model multiplication from the TenMarks program so that I could teach it to my students.

17:54 - Eileen
What grade levels?

18:12 - Peggy George
so far so good :-)

18:36 - Patti Ruffing
I have been looking at Amazon and see a number of people who were concerned with compatibility with their tablet devices; can that be addressed?

18:37 - dotty
My students did it because the liked the games and rewards.

18:49 - Peggy George
can you describe exactly how the process works for students once they are signed up for the summer program?

19:05 - Peggy George
do they have to do something daily? weekly?

19:12 - Peggy George
the badges sound great!

19:58 - Peggy George
let's wait until Q/A to deal with the questions so we are sure to get through all of the information Catherine has to share with us :-)

A great way to diffrentiate for students.

22:48 - Peggy George
that will keep it from being overwhelming to students!

24:01 - @wfryer
How it tenmarks different from front row or con Academy

24:11 - @wfryer
Khan

24:31 - @wfryer
(Sorry using Siri...

24:34 - Peggy George
great question Wes :-)

25:00 - Peggy George
Wes, how clever that you are using Siri to type in the chat!!!

25:28 - @wfryer
My wife uses can"Front Row" & Kahn Academy w her 3rd & 4th graders

26:12 - Peggy George
Khan academy doesn't provide assessment statistics and tracking of progress or show how students are mastering the content

26:22 - Peggy George
I'm not familiar with Front Row

26:40 - Suzanne Sallee
@wfryer - I think Front Row and Ten Marks are very similar. We have teachers that have used both with success. Guess it's about teacher choice and what they think would work best for their students.

27:14 - Peggy George
how would next year's teacher get that assessment information since the students sign up with their current teacher?

27:24 - @wfryer
No that's not true: Khan has very sophisticated tracking of progress & mastery, both individualized & aggregated by class

27:38 - Peggy George
https://www.tenmarks.com/consumer/signup (TenMarks Summer Math Program signup--FREE)

27:54 - @wfryer
Teachers or parents register as a "coach" for students

28:18 - @wfryer
This summer program by 10marks sounds interesting

28:27 - @wfryer
Cost?

28:41 - Peggy George
Thanks Wes. I need to learn more about how Khan does that. Can teachers track student progress or do students just track their own progress?

28:42 - Lorie Moffat
summer program - free

28:43 - @plnaugle (Paula)
The summer program is FREE.

28:57 - @wfryer
Thanks Lorie

29:02 - Lorie Moffat
:)

29:18 - Peggy George
you can even access TenMarks on a Kindle :-)

29:47 - @wfryer
Yes Peggy teachers w Kahn can track their students as long as they are added as "coaches" in the students accounts

30:24 - Peggy George
I'm interested in learning how the school year program interfaces with the summer program. Does the assessment data from the summer become part of the data during the school year program?

30:36 - Peggy George
very helpful to know Wes!

30:38 - @wfryer
What is the grade level focus for tenmarks?

30:54 - Lorie Moffat
2nd through Algebra 2, Geometry

31:07 - @wfryer
Great!

31:26 - @plnaugle (Paula)
I'm 2 to 1.

37:30 - Peggy George
for those of you who teach math are you required to use an adopted math curriculum/program?

37:58 - Tammy Moore
Perhaps not many administrators.

38:08 - Eileen
Yes we have a specific math program

38:19 - Peggy George
go ahead Catherine :-) Worried we may run out of time for you to get through all of your great content :-)

38:29 - Suzanne Sallee
We have a math program but teachers are allowed to supplement and fill gaps.

38:52 - tam
we also have a math program

39:09 - Peggy George
does it remember where the students leaves off if they don't finish a lesson?

39:38 - Peggy George
really helpful to see these actual examples!

41:20 - Peggy George
I'm guessing you probably wouldn't be doing whole class presentations since it is such an individualized approach.

42:42 - Peggy George
In case you missed it, this is our Livebinder link for today where you'll find lots of great resources and videos about TenMarks http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=1726427

43:11 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Sometimes I would display TenMarks questions on my IWB to go over them with the whole class. It helped them learn the questioning format, how to access the hints and videos, and answer multi select answers.

43:30 - Peggy George
What are actionable assessments? Is that for the teachers?

43:43 - Peggy George
thanks Paula! very helpful!

44:14 - Peggy George
they could probably be used as "warmup" activities at the beginning of the period for review

45:28 - Peggy George
thanks Catherine! so it provides recommendations to the teachers about what might be good next steps for each student :-)

46:01 - Peggy George
does it record if the student uses the hints as they are working?

46:10 - dotty #2
When I taught special Ed, I was able to baseline their math and show progress. Made it real easy to show progress on IEP goals.

46:32 - Peggy George
great idea Dotty!

46:33 - @plnaugle (Paula)
On your report you can see if the student accessed the hints of the video and how long they spent on the question.

47:14 - @plnaugle (Paula)
*or not of

47:14 - Peggy George
I think the kids would love the amplifiers!

47:26 - Peggy George
thanks Paula! great to know!

48:09 - Peggy George
just 5 minutes remaining Catherine :-)

48:56 - Peggy George
that dashboard is awesome! lots of valuable information for the teacher!

49:28 - Peggy George
Hi Alice Moore! Welcome! We're almost finished with the webinar but it is being recorded so you can see what you missed later.

49:30 - @plnaugle (Paula)
The common mistakes area of the report is great to help you pull small groups during your math class.

50:19 - Peggy George
so helpful for grouping students to drill down on specific areas of needs!

54:05 - Peggy George
good to know that students can share their end of year report card and summer results to their new teacher

54:41 - Peggy George
They won an award!! http://www.siia.net/codies/2015/winners_detail.asp?nID=470 (TenMarks is SIIA CODiE 2015 winner in “est Mathematics Instructional Solution”ategory)

During the year, if the parent signs up with the info the teacher sends home about the TenMarks program with the student's account info the parents can receive reports on how their child is doing.

55:30 - Peggy George
thank you so much Catherine for sharing TenMarks with us!! fantastic program!

55:34 - @wfryer
Thanks for addressing my question:-)
