Assess Your Students

Don’t just assess your students’ learning, use assessments to help them learn! Firecracker provides med school faculty with a Qbank and collection of prebuilt USMLE practice exams, allowing them to assess their students with a blend of formative and diagnostic board exams.

How Can We Help You?

Benchmark Progress

Firecracker assigns each student a set of daily study tasks based on your medical curriculum, prioritizing current class material and his or her weak areas, in order to ensure students retain what they’ve learned in lectures.

Firecracker allows for an immediate transition from assessment of a student’s knowledge to remediation of identified challenging areas. Firecracker tracks performance, lists at-risk topic areas and progress in these remediation tasks and reports them to a faculty in real time.
