Have questions about Skill Struck? We've got all the answers you need.
Skill Struck’s lesson plans are based on a track system that offers flexibility. Teachers have the ability to lock classes, monitor student progress and determine how far students can go. There are also extra challenges available at the end of each lesson for students who are progressing quickly and need more to do.
Teachers can add their own assignments, but they won't show up on the tracker and they won't be autograded.

Skill Struck has three different types of licenses for schools, including a per-seat license, site license and district license. A per-seat license allows schools to pay a set price for each student participating on the platform. This is a great solution if there is only one coding class, a small number of students or perhaps an after-school club. The site license is generally used by one school location and provides access to all teachers and students at that particular location. A district license will accommodate multiple schools/sites across an entire school district.
