If a student has no assignments from his or her teacher, NoRedInk shows students a recommended topic to review.
Students are not required to re-master any of these topics and they will not be penalized if they decide not to use the "Review" feature. "Review" simply gives students suggestions in case they need guidance on what to work on independently!
When students click the "Review" button, they will be prompted to re-master a topic to show that they still understand the topic. Starting a Review without completing it will show the associated topic as no longer mastered.
Topics recommended here are topics that the student has mastered two weeks ago or earlier. Students will see their oldest mastered topic first to help promote retention. Each time a student completes review of a topic, he or she will be shown another of their mastered topics from two weeks ago or earlier.
If a student hasn't mastered any topics in the past, he or she will not see any "Review" recommendations on their Home page. Students can keep track of topics they have previously reviewed through the badges displayed on the learning pathway within their Practice tab.
Teachers can track the number of recommended topics students complete on the leaderboard.
