CyberSlate is designed to make the coaching session efficient and productive. The activities are listed in order on the menu. The student can start the timer, and at the end of all items except Reading Passages, scores are automatically recorded and the chart is updated. Students quickly come to expect the efficiency of moving from item to item without a pause.
In all of the Grid fluencies, the coach presses the same keys for Corrects and Learning Opportunities (errors.) If you are sitting to the left of the student, the Z key is Corrects, and the X key is learning opportunities. If you sit to the right of the student, the Period key is Corrects, and Slash (/) is learning opportunities. In Transformers, the student can press the Space Bar to see if his answer is correct. In most cases, the Correct key advances the highlight to the next cell.
