Reflex Teacher Guide updated
With all the improvements to Reflex in the past year, we've had to update the Teacher Guide. The revised Teacher Guide discusses new features such as the Progress Tree and Spanish Language option, and goes into greater detail on topics such as logging in, enrolling students via CSV file, changing student assignments, and more. We hope the new guide will make it even easier to get started with Reflex, but if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact our wonderful Customer Support team!

"Thank you for making learning fun"
"Prior to using Reflex, my students struggled with math fact fluency. Once they began the program, their fluency and confidence in solving problems began improving almost immediately. The students walk into class ready to get on the computer for 'Reflex time.' I only wish I would have had this program at the beginning of the school year. Thank you for making learning fun."

Math fact fluency and implementing Common Core State Standards
"Arkansas Mathematics Standards did not specifically address fact fluency. Fact fluency was a weakness with many of our students, even though they had strategies to determine the answer for a fact. As we began to plan for the implementation of the Common Core State Standards, we were concerned about the time required for teachers to assess students’ fact fluency one-to-one. When we first investigated Reflex in August, 2011, we were immediately interested. We see Reflex as a means to track students’ fluency. Our students love the time they spend using Reflex. Thus, they are very motivated to complete assignments, as evidenced, by letters students have written to our superintendent. In just three short months, our students have made tremendous progress. My observation is that our students are more confident in mathematics as they demonstrate fluency for more facts."
