Students and teachers may discuss key economic concepts in this virtual classroom. Discussion board questions are included on specific pages within the courses. Teachers may also add their own questions to the discussion board. In some instances, teacher guidance is provided for suggested responses to the questions.
Similar to classroom response systems, teachers may virtually send questions to their students to check comprehension, gain attention and generate discussion. Summaries of the student responses can be shown in real time to both instructors and students.
You may use the student data section to determine what parts of the course students have completed. You may also view the pre-and post- test scores. These data may be used by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis to evaluate the success of its programs.
