What syllabus does Amrita Learning cover? top
The Mathematics and English Language content has been developed for Indian schools using NCERT curriculum for CBSE board. However, students from ICSE and State boards will benefit as the topics covered across the boards are similar. Also Amrita Learning will adjust the level of a student to a higher level or a lower level based on student performance and response.

9.
What subjects are covered? top
Mathematics and English are covered.

10.
How often should my child use Amrita Learning? top
Ideally, we recommend that your child use this program 4-5 times a week. The default time for each subject is set to 15 minutes.

Research has shown that shorter, frequent sessions are better for long term retention compared to longer but fewer sessions. Parental involvement is strongly encouraged.

11.
How to start learning? top
To use Amrita Learning there are two user accounts, one is the parent account and other one is the student account. Parent login is where you control all the activities of the child and it will not have the learning component. Student login is where the student can start learning including the initial assessment.

Children have their own accounts where our system stores information specific to them. Please refer to the welcome mail from Amrita Learning to see the detailed login information.

12.
How do I monitor my child's progress? top
While your child is using the system, data about his or her performance is continuously recorded and updated. Such data is made available to the parent and child in the form of text and graphical reports. For every subject, these reports provide the following information:

a) Time spent on subject
b) Current level of child by subject matter
c) Progress made by specified time period
d) Areas of strength and areas needing improvement

16.
How does this learning program complement my child's schooling? top
Regular practice with Amrita Learning will build a solid foundation in Mathematics and English Reading and Comprehension skills. Maths lessons are based on learning by understanding the concepts. The English program is based on phonics, word study, vocabulary and comprehension will ensure a strong foundation for English Reading and Comprehension. This will allow your child to perform better in school and in National Scholarship exams and standardized tests.

17.
Why do some lessons repeat? top
Amrita Learning analyzes your child's pattern of responses to determine if a lesson has been mastered or not. For incorrect answers, thinking clues, hints and tutorials are provided. Questions may repeat to allow a child to master the lesson.

18.
What is the Initial Assessment? top
The Initial Assessment Test is designed to find the right level of learning for your child, a level that is neither too easy nor too difficult. This level may be different from your child's level at school. If a child performs exceptionally well in certain topics, say multiplication and fractions, testing is automatically adjusted to a higher level in those topics. Similarly, if the child is having difficulty with certain topics, say word problems and vocabulary, the level is automatically adjusted to a level the child is comfortable with.

Hence it is possible that a child in Class 2 may be at Class 3 level in certain topics like multiplication, Class 1 level in word problems, and Class 2 level in measurements.

This kind of adaptivity allows the child to learn at their own level and speed.

Note that during the assessment, there is no help, hint or tutorial. The system silently accepts the answer, adjusts the level of the next question based on previous performance and continues testing. The assessment can last for the first few days.

19.
Can we skip the Initial Assessment? top
We strongly recommend that you go through the initial Assessment to identify the correct starting level for your child. Your child will be very motivated to use the system and learn when the learning level is neither too easy nor too difficult. The only exception can be for the very young child in LKG, they can start learning from the LKG level.

20.
Why are some buttons disabled during Initial Assessment? top
During the Initial Assessment, the system silently accepts both correct and incorrect answers and automatically presents the next question. The Help and Tutor buttons are disabled to determine your child's current knowledge of the topics presented. It is very important that you do not help your child during the Initial Assessment.

 
21.
Who are the people behind Amrita Learning? top
Developed in collaboration with Amrita University (managed by Mata Amritanandamayi Math, Kerala) Amrita Learning is a scientific and research-based learning program.
The Amrita Learning team is comprised of experienced teachers, educators and software professionals. These teachers are very well versed with the CBSE, ICSE and State standards
22.
How do I contact Amrita Learning? top
Send us an email at info@amritalearning.com and we will respond within 24 hrs. Please include your parent and child IDs in all your communications.

23.
Why is audio support not available for all classes? top
Since younger children may have difficulty reading, audio is available for KG-Class 3. After this, audio support is disabled as the child is expected to read the instructions on the screen.

24.
Is there a discount if I enroll more than one child? top
Yes. You will get a 20% discount for each additional child.

25.
Amrita learning uses the "Mastery Learning" approach. What does this mean? top
Amrita Learning is based on the philosophy of Mastery Learning. Mastery Learning is an instructional strategy based on the principle that all students can learn a set of reasonable objectives with appropriate instruction and sufficient time to learn.

The curriculum is divided into relatively small learning units, each with their own objectives and assessment.
Learning materials and instructional strategies are identified; practice, formative evaluation, reinforcement, and summarise evaluation are included.
Each unit is preceded by brief diagnostic tests, or formative assessments.
The results of formative tests are used to provide supplementary instruction, or corrective activities to help the learner overcome problems.

26.
How do we differ from other educational Tools? top
Our strength is that our assessment and learning are adaptive, i.e. a child would go through a "smart assessment" and be placed at a level that is neither too hard nor too easy. This way an above average child, a child in a remedial program and a child who is "at grade level", can start practicing and learning at a level that they are comfortable with. The above average student will quickly move up through lessons regardless of his current grade level, whereas the challenged student will have more tutorials and questions covering his area of weakness.

Also, the program will adjust the speed of learning for every topic, so that a child will spend more time and be asked more questions from a topic that is difficult. This ensures that the child can experience success by learning at his own level and by controlling the speed at which he learns.
