Odysseyware Academy's online curriculum uses a variety of strategies to explain concepts, provide practical application, and evaluate student performance. Content is delivered in a dynamic, multimedia format consistent with the expectations of today's technology-savvy students. Students love the interactivity. You'll love the efficiency.
Core Curriculum and Electives
Odysseyware Academy's technology-driven curriculum includes over 60 grade-level courses in four core subjects for students in grades 3-12, as well as a variety of electives. Course materials can be used for our alternative distance learning program or as supplemental courses for remediation and enrichment.
Learning is engaging, and lessons are brought to life with more than 50,000 built-in video clips, interactive games, slide shows, tiny tutors, and web links. Off-computer projects provide hands-on learning opportunities. Our distance learning program delivers a multisensory experience that engages students and supports academic achievement.
With instant grading, students get immediate feedback as they work through assessments. Formative quizzes and tests measure student comprehension and progress throughout their coursework and allow students to move forward only after flexible mastery benchmarks are met. Cumulative tests gauge ongoing progress and determine advancement.
Powerful Administrative Tools
Automatic grading, pacing, and lesson planning features allow our teachers to spend more time facilitating student learning.
Within our learning environment, student scores are automatically recorded to maintain a current database of records. With this data instantly available to teachers, student challenges are easy for teachers to identify and address. Students can revisit information easily to reinforce difficult concepts and overcome obstacles to learning. Subject, unit, and assignment grades are accessible to students, teachers, and parents.
Variety of Problem Types
Crossword puzzles, fill-in-the-blank, matching, multiple choice, sorting, true and false, drag-and-drop, preload text, paragraphs, timed sections, and many more problem types give students great variety in their daily coursework to keep them engaged and on track.
Odysseyware Academy's online curriculum creates an environment that encourages students to stick with a lesson until all their answers are correct. Students are placed into a mastery sequence that returns them to incorrect problems until all are answered correctly. Focused learning is not used during quizzes and testing.
Odysseyware Academy is open anytime of the day or night from any Internet-connected computer. This convenient feature allows students to complete assignments at a time that fits their schedule and their lifestyle. Although teachers are not available except during the school day, students have freedom to complete their lessons at their own pace, spending more time on challenging concepts while quickly moving through those they understand.
