As students practice on Freckle, they earn coins for questions they answer correctly, and they lose coins for questions they answer incorrectly. Students earn and lose coins in both the Individual Practice program as well as in Fact Practice. A few important things to note:
- The loss of coins is necessary because otherwise students quickly figure out the fastest way to get coins is to guess on every question.
- The coin totals reset daily to give every student a fair chance to climb to the top of the leader-board.
- Coins are gained at the same speed, regardless of the level at which the students are working.
