|Please read this FAQ page carefully before contacting the Co-op.|
|What is the difference between Discovery Education Science Techbook and the Discovery Education Science subscription, also available through the Co-op? Why would I use one over the other?
Discovery Education Science is designed to supplement any science curriculum with videos, virtual labs, explorations, literacy-building passages, an interactive glossary, and real-time supplemental assessments.
Discovery Education Techbook is a complete replacement for a traditional textbook. It not only includes much of the same content as Discovery Education Science, but also the core instructional text.
|Will my student's assignments be automatically graded?
Multiple response assessments that are taken in the product (and not on paper) are "graded" by the system.
|Can I access the Teacher Section?
At this time with the homeschool license that has been set up to support our members, we are not able to make use of the Teacher Section. This is reserved for a traditional classroom setting.
|Do I set assignments and assessments within my Teacher Account for each of my students, or are they automatic?
Because the Teacher Account is not available with this homeschool student subscription, assignment and assessment functionality is not available. Some assignments and assessments are built into the student subscription, but there is no accompanying teacher dashboard with which to review the results.
|I chose Pennsylvania standards. Why are only grades 3-8 available for my account?
Pennsylvania is the only state that does not teach science for grades K-2, and since Discovery Education Techbook correlates with the PA state standards, only grades 3-8 are available.
