Is ClassHero an intervention tool?

ClassHero can be used for intervention, and is perfect tool to use with small groups and individuals. However, ClassHero is primarily a Tier I tool, and is designed to allow you to assign your curriculum to your entire class. The built in differentiation and personalization allows teachers to assign what their teaching in class and be assured that each student will receive skill-practice that is appropriate for their skill level.

Is ClassHero a supplemental math tool?

No. ClassHero is intended to be used as a replacement for paper packets and worksheets, and designed to allow APS teachers to assign their core curriculum, Stepping Stones, as digital math practice that's:

  1. Instantly differentiated for every student

  2. Automatically graded in real-time

  3. Bilingual for immersion & ELL in 30+ languages

How does ClassHero replace worksheets and packets?

Assigning ClassHero for skills-practice is a great alternative to paper-based practice such as worksheets and packets. Unlike paper-practice, ClassHero automatically adds differentiation, grade automatically, makes curriculum bilingual and gives teachers a powerful live-monitoring tool.

Since ClassHero isn't meant to be used as a supplemental tool, you can simply assign what you're teaching in class in ClassHero's teacher dashboard. ClassHero can also be used to assign skills from any grade level to individuals or small groups that are above or below grade level.
