What Else Can Moby Max Do?

MobyMax is great in that teachers can simply put in their students and let them get started with minimal effort and fantastic results with data for days. However, MobyMax can do so much more!
  • Teachers can motivate their students by setting up contests to promote MobyMax usage.
  • Teachers can communicate with parents by sending home the parent letter in which the parent can log in and see their child's progress as well as any communication with the teacher.
  • Teachers can use MobyMax as a classroom management tool by assigning good or bad vibes in which the parents can also see.
  • Teachers can assign lessons based on what they are currently working on in class to reinforce student mastery.
  • Teachers can make student groups and assign different leveled group different assignments.
  • Standards based vs. skill based sorting option can help teachers meet the needs of RTI groups.
  • Teachers can track data on individual students and use that data for parent/teacher conference, RTI meetings, PLC meetings, or IEP meetings.
  • Teachers can track their class data to determine if reteaching is necessary.
