    I have taught with Accelerated Math for three years now.  The
multiple choice questions are at the mercy of the teacher.  You can
print a an exercise with or wothout the multiple choice.  Most
teachers choose the multiple choice format because they do not want to
grade anything by hand.  In the free answer format, the teacher must
grade the assignment using a printed key and then go into the computer
and check correct or incorrect for each problem (very time consuming) 
    I myself have found that I like to use the free responses
exercises in my direct instruction, and I check the students work as I
go around the classroom.  I then send them on their own with a
multiple choice practice.  I did not use much of the textbook this
    Their are still many kinks that I would like to work out, but when
the Stanford 9 test scores came in, 100% of my students made a full
years growth in math.  So I am all for the program.
