Studying the Material


Previous: Email/Print Study Path 

For each topic listed under the current unit, you will see the following information:

Status of current Topic:

Using the above image as an example, this student has not yet answered enough questions related to ‘Measures of Center’ to demonstrate mastery (or lack thereof), so the topic-level status is shown as a “?”. As you study (by clicking the "LEARN" button and check your knowledge (by clicking the "TEST" button) on the included material, the status will update. As you improve your performance, the status may change from Not Ready to Needs Review and finally to Mastered.

You will also see dots under the Topic name - these indicate the underlying concepts you will learn in this Topic. Each colored circle indicates material you have already Mastered, whereas open circles still need to be Mastered. 



Clicking the TEST button will allow you to take a mini-test, covering just the material in this Topic. If you don’t have a status for a Topic (like in the example above), we suggest that you check your knowledge by clicking the TEST button before you study the resources – that way, if you find you already know the material, you can master it quickly without spending any extra time on it!

You will want to check your knowledge after you’ve viewed or studied resources for this Topic so you can test your current level of understanding. Any time you complete one of these tests, your current EdReady score (on the Score Bar) will reflect your latest mastery levels.

Note: rather than taking a pre-test for each topic individually, you can click the UNIT TEST button near the top of the page to test all Topics in this Unit at the same time!


Clicking the LEARN button opens the online course material(s) for this topic so that you can study the content. Your display will update to one like below:

The bottom section of the page will open up to the default resource for you to study.
If there are alternative resources available, you will see a Want more practice? See all the resources you can study link above the resource. If you click this link, you’ll see icons for each available resource.


You can hover over any of these to learn more about the material, or click on it to study the selected item.

When you are finished studying, click the Back to study path button to return to your study path. 

Once you feel that you have studied the resources (for a Topic) enough, be sure to click the TEST button on your Study Plan to improve your EdReady score.
