How does it work?
Your child's teacher, proctor or administrator will assign assignments: lessons, tests or quizzes, tasks to complete, etc., in your student's assignment box. Your child will complete the assignment online and receive instant feedback on how they have performed on that task.
All of your child’s progress data are automatically uploaded to the teacher who can then use this information to help your child improve in that subject area.
Is the service safe and secure?
We will never distribute information about your child without your permission. PLATO Learning has a solid reputation that speaks for itself. They have been helping learners succeed for over 37 years. To learn more about PLATO Learning please visit www.plato.com.
