Our primary focus is to provide teachers with the tools needed to effectively instruct their students and manage their classes.Â With this goal and recent teacher requests in mind, we are pleased to announce the launch of a number of powerful new tools. Â These have been added to your account at no added expense.
Teachers can now send messages to their students.Â Both students and teachers have a new “Messages” tab upon login.Â Teachers can send reminders, assignments, and words of encouragement to an individual student or an entire class.
ASSIGNMENT SYSTEM UPGRADE
You can now allow students multiple attempts on an assignment or set a minimum required score.Â In addition, student and class data is now at your fingertips to better pinpoint effective assignments.
PROJECTOR MODE QUESTIONS UPGRADE
You can now load previously-created benchmarks into projector mode.Â This allows you to build custom question sets for use with multiple classes and to present these sets to the entire class using a computer and projector.
We are pleased to announce the results of a year-long, multi-state effectiveness study performed by an independent educational research firm.Â This study evaluated the USATestprep product in math and reading for over 1,100 students in forty classrooms.Â The results show that students who use USATestprep experience one half to one year more growth than students who did not use our product.
So let us know what you think of these new features. Thank you for suggesting them, and, as always, let us know what you think.
