How is the level of the first homework for students set in Sparx?

It takes a few weeks for the Sparx system to gauge the working level of brand new students. During these first few weeks, we will use the Initial Homework Difficulty Level selected for that class in order to set homework for each student.

The Initial Homework Difficulty Level can be selected by visiting the class manager page.

  • If you have a class who are all working at roughly the same level please select the appropriate level from the list.
  • For mixed attainment classes we recommend selecting the lowest appropriate level for your class.
  • If you have no information about the working level of a class we recommend selecting the easiest level available. 

In each case the homework difficulty will adjust over the following weeks to each student’s individual working level. These can be viewed and changed on the Student Manager page.
