Our Assessment Tool and Marking Tool™ question type help teachers better understand their students' reading abilities. Students enjoy our formative assessments, and teachers like how easy they are to create. We know, however, that the intuitive platform can get better.
The LTA Classroom got a little bit better this week. LTA Toolkit Pro accounts can now assign assessments to specific classes. This update will help with organization and differentiation. To accomplish this update, we moved Assessments and Lessons under the "Teacher" drop down next to the pencil and moved "Classes" to the homepage of the LTA Classroom.
Most reading and writing questions on state literacy exams, college aptitude tests (ACT and SAT), and college entrance exams require students to support ideas with textual details. What does this mean for teachers and students? For teachers, we need to increase the amount of authentic grade-level reading experiences we offer in all subjects.
A new style of assessment is now available! When building an assessment in the LTA Classroom, Toolkit Pro Teachers can choose from two types of tests: Assessment or Practice. The "Assessment" option is a standard test. Students work through each question and get a score at the end.
