What features of Front Row are free? What do I get with School Edition?

We believe in giving teachers the best tools to teach, and we believe all teachers should have the ability to give their students the best education possible. Thus, many of Front Row's features for Math, ELA, Social Studies, and Science will remain completely free for teachers. 

However, Front Row offers several paid products as well. 

Math

Student-led practice

Front Row’s individualized practice is free for all teachers. Students will see a personalized learning path depending on their strengths and areas for improvement.

In addition, teachers can also assign practice on a specific skill or for each student to practice at their own level. With the free product, teachers can assign one assignment at a time. With the paid version, teachers get unlimited assignments.

Administrator dashboard

This dashboard is only available with the paid product. It offers the combination of an administrator dashboard to monitor student growth and periodic data reports tailored to school needs. Administrators can get more accurate data than ever before - allowing them to make the most impactful decisions regarding student learning. 

An upgraded teacher dashboard with access to advanced features

The paid dashboard has information that the free teacher dashboard does not, including the ability to pick data from any past date, sort students into multiple classes, share student data with select colleagues, and monitor time spent and performance on any given student session. 

Benchmark Assessments

These assessments allow teachers and schools to monitor learning over the course of a given time period by assigning students benchmark assessments on a given domain or grade level several different times throughout the year. When students complete an assessment, extremely detailed reports are sent to the teacher's dashboard, letting that teacher know exactly how he or she should proceed. 30 benchmark assessments are available for free, with unlimited assessments available with the paid product.

Inquiry Based Lessons

Inquiry based lessons are cross-curricular activities that build conceptual understanding of mathematical topics while students explore real-world scenarios. In an inquiry based lesson, students participate in learning experiences where they develop the questions to answer and work together to find solutions. Inquiry based lessons promote collaboration, critical thinking, and productive struggle among students. There are many inquiry based lessons available for free, with the entire library accessible through the paid product.

ELA

ELA Articles for comprehension and writing practice

Front Row's English Language Arts articles help students improve their reading comprehension and writing skills, regardless of their proficiency level. The articles cover a wide variety of high-interest topics and can be easily assigned by the teacher to the whole class or specific students. The program will assign each student the appropriate level of the article based on his or her reading level. Students will have an opportunity to answer comprehension questions at their reading level and respond to a writing prompt associated with the article.

With the free product, teachers get 5 article assignments a month with reporting available for a limited number of students. With the paid product, teachers get unlimited assignments and access to all of the reports.
