StepUp in mobile

Flexible Learning

Pace & difficulty

Our expert teachers designed StepUp™ to be fully customizable – knowing that each student learns at their own rate. While in Learning mode, select the grade level and assign your student personalized homework – i.e. subject modules, numeric drills, and practice tests – to further their skills and prepare them for test day. Perfect for even the most hectic schedule! Each topic module or numeric drill can be started, stopped, or restarted at will; so young learners can engage with the material at a pace that works for them!

Measure progress

Setting and meeting benchmarks has never been easier! This robust yet customizable web app offers loads of grade-level practice modules, numeric drills, and more. Teachers can quickly identify knowledge gaps by putting their students’ skills to the test! From order-of-operations to writing standards, our kid-friendly modules provide educators with valuable feedback which can be used to mold each unique learning journey. Use the mobile app to track progress towards completion and view real-time reports – from anywhere – on any number of subtopics – then simply add or remove learning materials as needed!
