Why it Works

Weekly Quizzes

Weekly quizzes regularly remind students what they’ve learned throughout the year and give them a preview of what’s coming next. LtoJ® demolishes the “test and forget” cycle and replaces it with long-term memory.

Joy of Accomplishment

Students see and are celebrated for the progress they’re making – not for grades and class rankings.

Teamwork

Students – including those who struggle with learning – experience the joy of accomplishment when they achieve an all-time-best (ATB).

Visible Progress

Because students remember so much more, deep learning time is readily available

Benefits of LtoJ®
