Faculty

CALM benefits faculty by providing them with a straightforward means of assigning homework, and grading it in an automatic fashion. CALM provides tools to examine the performance of either an individual student or a group of students. Faculty can thus assess the comprehension of an individual or the entire class on a given topic.

Students

CALM provides the student with the opportunity to learn in a way that:

  • Allows a student multiple attempts to answer a question without penalty
  • Reinforces learning by providing immediate feedback
  • Incorporates adaptive features to effectively test each student
  • Emphasizes practicing similar questions to develop mastery

The newest features of CALM include:

  • Practice tests to simulate test taking and reduce test anxiety
