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.
Assessing writing takes time. Lots of time. No one has really nailed grading writing. Holistic rubrics and Turnitin.com have been the most modern innovations when it comes to writing. LiteracyTA hasn't found a way to auto-grade an essay (sorry English teachers and teachers of writing), but we are innovating and finding ways to make grading writing faster and more effective.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a fantastic winter break. Some of us are returning to school this week and others (like my father) have another week off. Regardless of where your break falls, it is 2017. And every new year brings new opportunities, a fresh start, and new (or renewed) commitments. As always, LiteracyTA remains committed to improving everyday.
Thank you for making 2016 absolutely amazing! Our individual teachers, schools, and districts made this year so special. All of you inspire us here at LiteracyTA to do better every year. 2016 was no exception. Here is our Top 10 list of new features and noteworthy updates.
I never learn. Before I left on Thanksgiving break, I had my students mark an argument. I wanted them to underline claims in the text and bracket evidence. From what I could see, my students nailed it! They were all engaged. They were all drawing underlines and placing brackets around textual material. I was so happy and ready for break.
