A Growth Suite consists of a number of questions on a given standard with answer options -- all efficiently represented on a single screen (or slide). They're ideal for teachers to display on a classroom projector or flat panel so that students can complete the activity at their own pace (asynchronous) using clickers or student devices.
You can find Growth Suites under Lessons Assessments > Growth Suites.
A Growth Suite may also be used as a teaching aid, for walking students through one or more example questions (synchronous) before "turning them loose" to finish the activity at their own pace (asynchronous).
Advantages of Growth Suites:
- No prep or grading necessary for teachers
- In-the-moment data for remediation or reteaching

- In-the-Moment Formative Data
- Exit Tickets on a Standard
- Class Review of a Concept
- Student Engagement
- Teaching Aid
- Team Activity (students on a team share a clicker or device)
