Enrollment is fairly self-explanatory, but throughout the process MobyMax offers assistance through yellow pop-up speech bubbles. This is a great addition for any teachers who are uncomfortable or unfamiliar with technology. They also provide an easy to follow guide on the steps your students should take to connect to your class.
Once you have your students enrolled and connected, they will log in and begin! When students sign in they'll see a dashboard similar to the teacher dashboard and they'll need to choose Math, Language, Vocabulary or Reading. The first activity in both sections in a placement test to determine their level of proficiency. As I mentioned before both sections are completely aligned with the Common Core Standards.
After your students have finished their placement tests, their results will be automatically linked to your teacher account. You'll be able to see everyone's results and check out which indicators and standards students are having trouble with.
Then, MobyMax does all of the legwork by assigning lessons to help students fill in their missing knowledge gaps. The software determines which indicators students need work on and creates assignments based on that! It's an incredibly useful feature and a huge time saver.
When students sign in, they'll see exactly what they need to work on and the teacher can keep track of their progress. However, teachers have complete control over the process and if they want to delete or assign different lessons, that option is available.
But, if you're willing to put in the extra $59 (or $300 for a school-wide license) the Pro Version has a ton of extra features that a lot of teachers would enjoy.
With the Pro Version, teachers can print out student progress reports, have support for IEP plans, offer a nice collection of math and vocabulary games to the students, have contests, award badges, and a whole lot more.

In conclusion, MobyMax is an excellent service that gives teachers as little or as much control over the curriculum as they want. It's aligned to the common core standards, designed to be completely automatic, and offers an enormous amount of feedback and student data. On top of all that, the Free version includes everything a teacher needs to run the program successfully in the classroom. Well done MobyMax, well done.
