Tools for Teachers

Theory in a Box School Edition provides a teacher interface allowing instructors to monitor their students' progress, give guided assignments, and keep track of areas where they may need extra attention. An administrative interface includes tools for creating and maintaining student and faculty accounts, monitoring progress school-wide, and setting other preferences.

A Sophisticated Quiz and Exam System

Theory in a Box offers an advanced system of practice quizzes and exams in each topic area to ensure that students have a solid grasp of the material covered. Quizzes and exams take a well-rounded approach with three question types: multiple choice, true/false, and listening. During practice quizzes, students receive explanations for questions answered incorrectly, complete with notated musical examples, allowing them to sharpen their skills for that topic's exam. Student progress in both practice quizzes and exams, including details of questions answered correctly and incorrectly, is saved and available through the Theory in a Box teacher and administrative interfaces. This feature allows teachers and administrators to target extra attention and tutoring to concepts that may prove difficult for their students.
