1. How should I introduce Merit to my students?

The best way to introduce Merit to your students is to show them how their personal learning center page looks and go through a few learning activities with them.

The following PDF is helpful too. http://www.meritonlinelearning.com/OLMS/manuals/Student_User_Guide.pdf

2. Is there anything students should not do?

For optimal use, students should:

  • Not use the browser's back button.
  • Keep only one browser window open.
  • Exit by clicking "Log out."
  • Avoid clicking buttons in the programs multiple times.

3. What is a skill level?

A skill level is the equivalent of a grade level.

4. Is there an assessment component?

There are pre- and post-tests built into most Merit programs. In addition, work is tracked while students work on the learning activities.

5. Does a real person correct students' writing?

No, Merit writing programs' built-in tips and hints guide students through the writing process and teach them how to correct their work.

In addition, teachers can log in to their online portfolio and make formative assessments quickly.

6. Are students able to work both at home and school?

Yes.
