Today we’ve launched the Content Exchange and a completely redesigned , device-friendly version of Assessments. This is just the beginning of a series of major improvements announced for release this summer!
Collaborate not only with the teachers at your school or district, but also with educators all over the world! Browse the Question Bank, Assessment Bank, and Wordlist Bank (coming soon) to find standards-aligned, educator-created and curated content. Create your own content using 50+ tech-enhanced item formats and share it with your school, your district or even better – share with the rest of the ScootPad community. Common Core Standards, Indiana Academic Standards and England National Standards are currently available (10 more state and international curriculums are planned for release in the coming months).
Totally Redesigned Assessments
Gauge your students’ progress with formative assessments, benchmark assessments and SBAC/PARCC simulation tests. Our revamped assessment features now help you find content with enhanced depth and rigor. Choose among questions with different DOK levels and TEI formats to build your own assessment, or simply select concepts and let ScootPad auto-generate an assessment for you!
What’s new in Assessments:
- Auto-generate an assessment or custom build by hand-picking questions
- Filters: New filters make it easy to find exactly the kind of assessments and questions you’re looking for. Filter by standards, DOK, question formats, and more.
- Cart to help you add questions and review quick summary of the assessment
- Bookmark assessments and questions for quick access at any time in future
Create Your Own Questions
Creating new questions is a lot easier now with the easy-to-follow steps and the final question verification before saving the question. Go ahead and create questions using our 50 technology enhanced item formats.
Refreshing UI Improvements
Color themes now available for you to personalize your ScootPad experience.
We’ve also made several user experience improvements across ScootPad including a much simpler and cleaner homepage, Parent Invitation Letters with your own custom message and translation to many languages including spanish.
