Benchmark & Remediation Package Option Breakdown


  1. At-Risk Baseline Package

  2. The At-Risk Baseline B&R package will allow your school to focus on preparing your at-risk students for their board exam based on a detailed view of their mastery. With this package, Firecracker will field a single diagnostic test to students you identify that will benchmark them relative to their peers nationally. You will be able to better identify those who may perform poorly on their exams and provide them with a personalized remediation program.

    Package elements:

    1. One half-length (160 question) board exam diagnostic test to specific students
    2. Six months access for those students who are identified as at-risk in order to complete remediation tasks

  3. Class Baseline Package

  4. The Class Baseline B&R package will allow your school to focus on preparing your students for their board exam based on a snapshot view of their mastery. With this package, Firecracker will field a single diagnostic test to all students in a class that will benchmark them relative to their peers nationally. You will be able to identify those who are potentially at-risk of performing poorly and provide personalized remediation tasks.

    Package elements:

    1. One half-length (160 question) board exam diagnostic test for all students in a class
    2. Six months access for 25% of students who are identified as at-risk in order to complete remediation tasks

  5. Series Remediation Package

  6. Firecracker believes in a vision of learning that is characterized by a frequent and consistent cadence of formative assessments, delivered to students early into their studies and continuing at specific intervals throughout the academic year. Not only does this vision allow for accurate and ongoing benchmarking to see how individual students are progressing relative to others, but it also allows for identification of at-risk students early enough to allow for intervention through highly focused remediation efforts.

    This package allows you to measure student mastery over a series of three diagnostic exams.

    Package elements:

    1. Three half-length board exam diagnostic tests
    2. Six months access for 25% of students who are identified as at-risk in order to complete remediation tasks

  7. Comprehensive Remediation Package

  8. While Firecracker’s format of frequent and consistent assessments allows for accurate benchmarking and remediation of at-risk students, it is designed to address the weaknesses of all students, regardless of academic standing. Through ongoing diagnostic assessment and daily review sessions, Firecracker’s self-study platform identifies each individual student’s strengths and weaknesses, and automatically assigns hyper-focused remediation activities to ensure that those weaknesses are improved the moment they appear.

    This package allows you to distribute a series of three diagnostic exams and provide access to all your students, enabling everyone to utilize our self-study platform.

    Package elements:

    1. Three half-length board diagnostic tests for all students in a class
