Let us Wow you with Wowzers Classroom Management System. Here is what several teachers have to say:
"Wow, this is an amazing tool that has made me a better teacher. The tool lets me know exactly how my students are doing each day. It even gives me an alert that tells me which students are struggling with the concept so that I can concentrate on working with the students who need extra help while my other students are able to progress at their own rate."
"Not only does Wowzers test what my students know ,but it automatically sends them on a path to learn the content and remediate if necessary. They love it that they don't have to wait for me to grade papers and I love it because I don't have to grade papers ! Their scores are recorded and I can not only access the scores when ever I want, but I can use this as my grade book."
"My students are driven by the coins that are awarded. I like it that the system allows this."
