    [Neither is very good.]

    "Basing their decisions on their test results, students independently decide whether to move further or to return and repeat little-understood material."

    Based on their test results, students decide whether to move further or to return and repeat poorly understood material.

    Re: Based or Basing

    synthart, can you see the word Thank in the bottom left corner of every post?

    Just click on that instead of thinking you need to quote our replies back to us and write a thank you letter for every reply.
