Introducing Our New and Improved “truly” Adaptive Placement Tests

Good news teachers! Our Adaptive Placement Test feature has gotten a major facelift with several new capabilities and improvements. Welcome to our new placement test report which shows you all the important insights about how students performed in the placement test down to the exact number of questions in each concept tested. In this new release, we’ve also added new capabilities such as auto-assignment of placement tests and ability to assign placement tests in any grade level right from within the placement test page.

Insightful Placement Test Report

Our adaptive placement test generates a real-time report showing you a breakdown of how a student performed on each concept within each unit – always available for you – not just after a student is done with the placement test but even while a student is currently working on the placement test. Pie chart at the top summarizes the results showing you an overall proficiency coupled with color coded units with the number of concepts in each and indicating a pass or fail.

Auto-Assign Placement Tests

Auto assign placement
Leave the placement test assignment to ScootPad! This new setting under Math and ELA allows you to have ScootPad automatically assign placement tests. Whenever you enroll a new student or change one’s learning path, ScootPad will automatically assign a placement test for that student so they can be placed in the appropriate unit on their learning path.

Placement Test for any grade level

Want to test your students on what they learnt last year? No Problem! Assign a placement test for the grade level you want, right from the placement test page with just 2-clicks! This will move students to that learning path and assigns a placement test for them to launch from their dashboard right away.

You can use the Placement Test at any time during the school year to quickly re-assess how your students are doing and how far they really moved along on their learning path – you can even challenge them with a reward (example: who ever places in the highest unit gets a candy). Well, you get the idea :).

Want to learn more about our Placement test feature and how to use it? Visit our Help Center to follow step-by-step instructions. Or, feel free to start a Live Chat with us, email us at, or give us a call at 1-800-994-0706.

Huntsville City Schools Finds Success With ScootPad and Extends License

We’re pleased to announce that Huntsville City Schools renewed their ScootPad district-wide license for the 2015-2016 school year, enabling personalized learning for each and every student while preparing them for the high-stakes assessments.

Huntsville City Schools, one of the premier school districts in the state of Alabama serving over 23,000 students, started using ScootPad back in April 2014. Huntsville City District administrators were able to run usage and proficiency reports district-wide for 2014-2015 school year to ascertain measurable results and impact ScootPad has delivered.

“Now, we can give pre and post tests to students to determine mastery and learning that has taken place. Reading, eBooks, Math, Spelling, Behavior Tracking are all on one dashboard – everything needed to manage student learning in one place” said Elena Lee, Math Coach at Huntsville City Schools, on behalf of the district’s experience with ScootPad.

ScootPad is now a certified LTI app available on EduAppCenter!

We’re thrilled to announce that ScootPad is now a certified LTI app available on Edu App Center.


What is Edu App Center?

Edu App Center is a provider of learning apps built on LTI, allowing educational tools to be integrated in one LMS platform. In their words: “Basically it’s like Facebook apps or Google widgets, but interoperable between lots of edu tools.”

So, what does this mean for teachers, parents, and students?

A few awesome things actually:

  • You don’t have to be an IT genius to integrate ScootPad with your LMS; this can easily be done by you. Simply install ScootPad from Edu App Center.  
  • No need to stray off to an unfamiliar place; just launch ScootPad from your existing LMS system and keep all of your learning tools in one place.
  • A separate login with us isn’t necessary. You can seamlessly sign into ScootPad with one click using single sign-on.

Check us out on Edu App Center!

New Feature: Historical Student Mastery Reports

Teachers need to have deep insight into their students’ learning in order to provide the best instruction, including what work students have done in the past as well as how they are doing in other classrooms. 

We’re excited to announce our newly released Historical Mastery Report which provides teachers with a detailed past and present report on each student’s proficiency, drilled all the way down to each concept. This is a powerful tool for teachers to use to identify learning trends throughout the student’s ScootPad history.

Here are a few ways you can leverage this new feature:

  • Get to know new students in-depth and get them on the right track, right away
  • Provide more effective intervention by seeing where they are struggling in all classrooms
  • View how students are doing at home to build a stronger home-school connection


Unlike other platforms, ScootPad won’t archive student data at the end of each school year and keeps all insight on past performance accessible. New classroom, new school, no problem – the data will remain safe and secured with the student account so long as it exists. It’s your data. We let you decide what to do with it.

To learn more about this feature and how to use it, please visit:

Ringing in the New School Year with ScootPad

It’s that time of year again when backpacks are full of fresh school supplies and the white boards are clear of marker stains. Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year, folks! While you’ve been prepping for the new school year, we’ve been busy working on new features and improvements (most of which were requested by you).

New Help Center


Our help center has undergone a total revamp. Along with newly designed search, we reorganized our help articles to make it easier for you to navigate around and find answers to your questions. We’ve also created step-by-step instructions to Get Started including the Top 10 Ways To Use ScootPad based on best practices you told us.

Assessments 2.0


Create your own assessments and questions in 50+ technology-enhanced formats, and share them with others. We’re also empowering our network of 200,000+ teachers to rate, flag, and recommend content so you get to use and choose the best questions and assessments for your students.

LTI integration


Keeping track of login credentials for multiple tools can be tedious. So, with that being said, ScootPad is now offering LTI integration and allowing single sign-on for students from their existing SIS/LMS systems.

Adaptive Spelling


Students can now practice Spelling words on auto-pilot with our new Spelling adaptive learning paths, similar to ELA and Math. Teachers no longer have to manually assign wordlists to students, ScootPad has taken care of creating grade-level wordlists for all K-8 grades which are automatically available for all classrooms. You can also assign your own custom word lists and assignments as always.

Historical Student Mastery Report


We’ve made historical student mastery data available to you so you have greater insight into your students’ present and past proficiency and struggles. Unlike any other solution, we let you keep your student data on ScootPad (safe and secure) so teachers get to gain invaluable historical mastery insight for their new students.

Student Data Management Improvements



Managing student rosters on ScootPad got a lot easier for both teachers and administrators. We’ve added new features such as bulk upload, bulk enroll, move students between schools, search and enroll students and more.

Free weekly webinars to learn more!

Whether you need an introduction, want to get tips on prepping for the new school year, learn more about our new features, or just want to hear our lovely voices, you’re invited to join in on our free weekly webinars.

Get Ready for Back-To-School on ScootPad!

Hey ScootPad Squad! Thanks for making the 2014-2015 school year such an awesome experience. As the new year approaches, here are some helpful action items for admins and teachers to get their new classrooms started on ScootPad.  We’ve compiled a checklist for each of you to consider as you transition to new school year.

In addition to these new features, we have scheduled FREE weekly webinars to help both admins and teachers get ready for Back-to-School.  Here is our schedule:
Teachers: Every Wednesday @ 1 PM PST and Thursday @ 3 PM PST
Admins: Every Wednesday @ 10 AM PST

We’ve made some dramatic improvements to student data management this summer to help you take care of the yearly changes.  We understand that a new school year means new classrooms, new students, old students, new teachers, and etc. To help you prepare for these changes, we have created features that will archive all data, De-Dup (delete duplicate accounts), and improve bulk student upload.

Here are a few suggested steps you can take to prep for the new school year:

  1. Un-Enroll All Students – Student Historical Mastery Report data will remain.
  2. Delete All Classrooms – This will un-enroll students and delete classrooms. Historical Mastery Report data will remain.
  3. Create New Classrooms
  4. Delete Unwanted student accounts – Admins can view all students at a school and delete accounts that have never logged in or students that are not at your school/district this year
  5. De-Dup Students – This feature allows you to identify student accounts that may be duplicates (either through the bulk upload process or created by teachers)
  6. Bulk-Enroll students – into new classrooms or Print Class Codes and distribute to teachers for self enroll

Following these steps from your admin account will ensure your school rosters are cleaned up and prepared for the 2015-2016 school year.  Don’t forget to register for some free webinars, view step-by-step instructions, or start a Live Chat with us!

Teachers have two options when preparing for next school year and essentially can follow the same steps as admins, but on a smaller scale.  Teachers can now conveniently clean out and use their existing classroom, or start fresh with a new classroom and new students with less mouse clicks.

Clean out existing classroom and use it next year:

  1. Un-enroll students – This will remove your old students from your classroom so you can enroll your new class
  2. Change the name of your classroom
  3. Enroll new students using: Existing Student Accounts, New Student Accounts, Google Accounts, Schoology, LMS/SIS
  4. Change the Learning Path (grade level) of your classroom

Clean Slate – Delete your old classrooms and start fresh:

  1. Un-enroll students
  2. Delete classroom
  3. Create new classroom
  4. Enroll new students using: Existing Student Accounts, New Student Accounts, Google Accounts, Schoology, LMS/SIS

Following one of these options will ensure your classroom is ready to go for the 2015-2016 school year. Don’t forget to register for some free webinars, view step-by-step instructions,  or start a Live Chat with us!

Tea Area Schools replace several learning tools with ScootPad district-wide

We’re pleased to announce that Tea Area School District adopted ScootPad District-Wide, allowing the district to standardize learning for all students while saving money and gaining invaluable insight into student learning across the district.

Tea Area Schools, a tech-savvy district experienced with technology in the classroom and their effects on student learning, was in search of a comprehensive platform to enable innovative and challenging learning opportunities. ScootPad was introduced to Tea Area Legacy Elementary school during a brief trial. ScootPad impressed administrators with its detailed reports, while teachers were pleased to see the features they desired all on one platform. Tea Area Schools had other prospective bidders, such as iXL, but decided to go with ScootPad due to its comprehensiveness and value for the money.

“Our teachers were so impressed with ScootPad’s platform and the abundance of features, that I don’t know where to begin. They were immediately pleased when they saw the Learning Paths feature and how well it covers the Common Core. They also liked that the program can adapt to the learners’ needs by assessing each student and placing them in the appropriate unit on the learning path. In addition, the teachers found the reports to be very useful in determining learners’ needs whether it be for an individual, a small group, or the entire class.” said Jamie Ihnen, Technology Integrationist for Tea Area Schools. “Thanks to ScootPad’s wide variety of subjects and features, we are able to save money by purchasing ScootPad for the entire district and eliminate other programs that we have licenses for. With all students using ScootPad, we are looking forward to accessing district-wide learning data.”

“We’re happy to have Tea Area Schools choose ScootPad as their district-wide learning tool.” said Bharat Kumer, Co-founder and CEO of ScootPad. “One of the goals of Tea Area Schools is to provide innovative and challenging learning opportunities to their students, and our entire team is more than thrilled to stand behind ScootPad to enable that goal.”

Forest Park School District chooses ScootPad over iXL, MobyMax and Mathletics

Forest Park has been using a variety of ed-tech tools for some time including iXL, MobyMax, and Mathletics. They were in search of a comprehensive solution that was intuitive, adaptive, and engaging for their students while saving valuable time for their teachers. ScootPad was first introduced to Forest Park in late April for a district-wide trial, and after two months of comparing ScootPad with their existing tools, Forest Park decided to standardize on ScootPad for the upcoming school year.

“Forest Park Schools were using a variety of online tools to support their math instruction prior to choosing ScootPad. We wanted a solution that would help all students in grades K-8. Teachers piloted ScootPad during the Spring of 2015 while still using the other tools including IXL, MobyMax and Mathletics. In the end, ScootPad was chosen because the teachers LOVED the “scootorials”, the ability to add co-teachers, the ease of assigning remedial assignments and how clear it was which standard/grade a student was working on. We look forward to the implementation of ScootPad in the 2015-16 school year.” said Amanda Walsh, Director of Instructional Technology.

“We’ll take any opportunity to showcase ScootPad side-by-side with other tools. Trials like these allow schools & districts to ‘try-before-they-buy’ and they’re loving what they see in ScootPad compared to other solutions in the market.” said Bharat Kumar, CEO and Co-founder of ScootPad.
