HOW IT WORKS

Each SPARK unit focuses on a single skill. SPARK utilizes Odysseyware’s CRx (Credit Recovery) mode, assigning a pretest for each unit. Based on the results of the assessment, if a student passes, they are assigned the next pretest. If a student fails the pretest, they are assigned a remedial skill lesson, followed by a post-test.
