This blog is the 2nd of the 10-part blog series introducing you to the 10 major improvements and new features available for your use in the new school year.

Improvement 2 of 10: Engaging Content built with 50+ Tech-Enhanced Item formats. Brand new practice and assessment content built from the ground up using the 50+ tech-enhanced item formats which offer the psychometric properties that help more accurately measure student knowledge compared to traditional formats.

Our dedicated content team spent the past 12+ months, in close collaboration with 20+ master teachers, to develop the new practice and assessment content for all K-8 grades. It started with designing a blueprint for each standard to ensure comprehensive coverage with the required concepts/skills, appropriate DOK level to achieve the expected rigor and appropriate TEI formats to accurately measure student knowledge. Each item has gone through a 3-level meticulous review, validation and verification process to ensure the item is fully aligned, complete and accurate.
