Among the benefits of Total Motivation is online progress monitoring, which provides real-time, visual feedback of student performance on 100 percent of content standards, allowing educators to easily identify and provide instruction to close gaps to mastery. A wide variety of reports and views are available to educators, ranging from item analysis to standards mastery, and from the student to the district level, further empowering educators to make sound instructional decisions and differentiate instruction for their students.
