     Successmaker Helpful hints:(this is not up & running at this time)

    1.  If students get stuck or frustrated on a question there is a question mark on the left side of the screen.  This will give them the answer but also let the program know that your child needs a tutorial on this concept later in the program.  Remember, do NOT help your child as the program is using the data to assess where your child is with their math abilities.
    2.  Your child may use scratch paper and pencil, white boards and markers, or the on screen scratch paper.
    3.  SuccessMaker requires the most recent version of JAVA.  If you need to download it, it can be found by googling JAVA.
    4.  Access the website through the Mountain Shadows website--student resources--math sites (scroll down until you see Successmaker on the list)  Username:  your child's ID number which is their lunch number;  Password:  student's lunch number
    . If your child is unable to log in, they may need to use a different browser, a different device, or have them try in 5 minutes.  We were only able to purchase a certain number of licenses and there may be too many students trying to log in at one time.  Remember, students are unable to log on until after 5:30.
