How does SuccessMaker® work?
SuccessMaker® is an adaptive software program that can provide individualized interventions for students. SuccessMaker® has an internal process called the Initial Placement Motion (IPM) during which students are assessed by the program. The IPM reveals the current math level of each student and provides a trajectory of use toward grade level which. The trajectory of use includes the number of hours “on task” needed in the program to achieve grade level expectations in math. Students participate in 15- to 20-minute sessions. The number of sessions is determined by the level of intervention needed for the student and there is no “daily” requirement. However, the intensity and duration of intervention should be strategically determined in order for students to move to grade level quickly.
