Introducing: Firecracker Classroom

Posted by Marsha Gelber on Aug 25, 2020 7:51:12 PM

Firecracker Classroom is a powerful way for instructors to assess and stay connected to their students virtually or physically, as they learn course material.


Featuring key Wolters Kluwer textbooks, Firecracker Classroom combines its adaptive learning platform with the foundational textbook information that medical students need to understand, remember, and apply in their courses. The result is a formative assessment tool that helps students learn and review course work, prepare for the boards, and provide essential data to instructors.


Students can mark the topics they are learning from both the textbook chapters and Firecracker topics so that they can review them together (or independently) to ensure they remember what they need to know for course exams as well as for the USMLE Step 1 or COMLEX Level 1, in a personalized way that adapts what each learner knows.


Then, Firecracker Classroom also provides case vignettes – both cases from the textbook in a timed practice exam mode, and bonus cases in an untimed tutor mode, so that faculty can review the data of student progress, both in how much effort they put forth as well as their scores on the practice exams. When students answer a case vignette incorrectly, they can immediately remediate on their gaps in understanding using active recall questions.
