When a Score Isn't Enough: Students Explain Their Data

By on January 17, 2017

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. The "Practice" offers a refreshing spin on test taking and offers question-level feedback for both the students and the teacher. This style of assessment is perfect for learning new information and is the right solution to standards-based grading.

Introducing Practice!

Students get immediate, question level feedback. Add an emoji and a comment and watch engagement soar! After students view their results, they rate their confidence level and explain their data.

On our friendly data-dashboards, teachers can quickly view feedback students give by scrolling through the roster and hovering over the blue bubbles.

To see all comments, click "Expand" next to the Confidence Level column. Teachers can see all of their students' comments, making it easy for teachers to learn what their students are thinking and what they still need to know to be successful.

Try our Practice Assessment out this week! Ask three questions. Get amazing results!!

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
