# SPARKS

SPARKS provides realistic simulation-based assessments for students in college-level introductory electronics courses. Each computer-based simulation challenges students to accomplish a task—for example, making a measurement or trouble-shooting a circuit. SPARKS software also monitors, records, and interprets a student's actions and generates scored reports enabling both students and instructors to view test scores over time and compare and evaluate learning progress.
