We’re very excited to release these new features which will further extend ScootPad’s impact and value to teachers, students and parents. Also, expect a ton more features scheduled to release over the next 10 weeks as we prepare to bring you the most comprehensive (all-in-one) and affordable Common Core Standards aligned learning platform for the 2013-2014 school year!

Placement Tests

You now have the ability to assign placement tests for your students in Math and ELA/Reading. When a new student is added, ScootPad automatically assigns a placement test to assess the student’s concept proficiency and places the student in the appropriate unit. You can also assign a placement test at any time (from your Learning Paths tab). You will receive placement test results email in real-time and you can also review the history of all placement test results online anytime.

SkillsDNA™ powered Learning Paths

Learning paths have a new and improved look (powered by our SkillsDNA™ technology)! Students can easily navigate their learning path and see concepts in which they are proficient and those needing improvement (red and orange colors indicate below proficiency). Teachers and Parents also get a clear view of their students’ learning needs.
