Editing the Mandatory Practice Preference

Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Administrator, School Administrator, Teacher

Note: District staff and school staff can view the setting, but they cannot change it.

The Mandatory Practice preference allows you to require your students to complete a practice after failing the first test at a new level. With the default setting, students are required to practice after the first test on a level.

This preference affects:

  • MathFacts in a Flash Renaissance Place (computer or tablet)
  • NEO 2 using the MathFacts in a Flash RP SmartApplet
  • Enhanced Responder (RESP) using firmware version 4.03 and above and MathFacts in a Flash Renaissance Place
  • Note: Renaissance Responders and NEO 2 will no longer be supported after future software updates.

This preference does not affect:

  • NEO 2 using the MathFacts in a Flash (offline) SmartApplet
  • Renaissance Responders that are using a firmware version lower than 4.03 or that are using MathFacts in a Flash Offline
  • Renaissance Home Connect

  1. On the Home page, select MathFacts in a Flash, then Preferences as shown below.

  4. Check the box if you want to require a practice when the student fails the first test for a level.
