Meaningful
Data
Truly measuring student mastery of the standards can be tough. Smarter Solving makes it easy.

With Smarter Solving, data-driven instruction is simple and practical. Smarter Solving’s report dashboard allows teachers to quickly see student mastery of specific concepts so they can focus their instructional time on those most in need of attention. Teachers can view performance by Common Core standard and can drill down to every single problem solved.

Reasoning Mind’s fluency metric provides teachers with information that goes beyond whether or not a student has met the expectation for a particular standard. Fluency is calculated by looking not only at how many problems a student has completed, but also the difficulty level of those problems. It provides a full picture of student performance in relation to standards, rigor, and the complexity of problems students are solving. Teachers may use this metric to target instruction and intervene with confidence. The Reasoning Mind fluency metric is also a strong indicator of a student's critical thinking and problem-solving skills and their preparedness for the next generation assessments.
