It can be something you want to review later, or a tip you want to remember to try. Use the “+” button to mark items as priorities and create a list for review later. You can then mark items as completed once you’ve accomplished your goals. You can also share helpful information and tips throughout the app with family, friends, and more using social networks or email.

Great Concept Missing Key Featute

I sincerely wanted to love this app. Indeed, I have long hoped for app which would provide parents with a simple method of tracking their child's progression through academic benchmarks and skills.

And while this app does an amazing job of providing a simple interface and presents the various skills in an easy to understand manner -which is both informative and useful to parents- the app does not have any way of noting an individual child's progress or mastery other than the "notes" field. Nor does the app show parents the next level of skill development or how the skill relates to other domains.

Since this app is made by Pearson, who is supposed to be a leader in data driven educational decision making, I expected more.

Certainly, the Pearson company receives enough federal money and has done considerable lobbying in order to suggest they are a leader in education.

Plain and Simple:
The Parent Toolkit app states that it contains "checklists" and one of the features of a checklist is the ability to check when a task has been completed.

Absolutely Phenomenal App!!!

As an educator for over ten years, I have wanted to find a main resource/hub for parents that would help them best support their child academically. When I finally came across this the "Parent Toolkit", I was completely blown away, so much so that I plan on encouraging all of the parents who attend my upcoming speaking engagement on "Helping Your Child Succeed" to download it. This app is beyond helpful and any parent who wants to know how best to assist their child in the current grade level. Simply beautiful. I'm overjoyed to have found this app.

Great app for parents

Really good tips for parents with kids in school, and it's not just classroom stuff. I got some great tips on nutrition as well. Definitely adding a priority for more veggies in our house!
