Why Teachers Love Merit Software
Merit covers the vital curriculum areas that students must know to succeed. The programs provide an integrated environment that enables students to apply skills while they are learning. Skills developed using the software transfer over to other areas of academic performance.
When students encounter areas of diffi culty, they can choose to access several forms of assistance. Explanations, tips, examples, and options to retry skills maximize learning opportunities.
Context-sensitive tips and non-judgmental delivery of instruction make it easier for students to accept responsibility for their weaknesses and build their self-confi dence as learners.
Built-in assessments place students at an appropriate level. Post-tests validate accomplishments. Easy-to-use tracking of student data enhances communication between teachers and students.
Questions, answers, tips and explanations can all be spoken aloud to students while they work. Hearing the spoken words of the exercises provides another way to reach students.
