New Welcome Dialog at Login

Updated Take A Tour
Teachers and students can click on the Take a Tour icon to get a preview of the features available on that page.

Teacher Experience

New and Updated Homepage
The updated home page allows teachers to easily access their classroom, preview student performance in a class and share the class code.
Updated Classroom Management

Teachers can view the overall performance in the course, change the classroom name, set the minimum score for trophies, archive or delete the classroom, and manage the student roster.

Introducing Standards Aggregation in Collections and Assessments
When editing collections and assessments, teachers can now aggregate suggested standards.
For collections, the suggested standards are aggregated from resources in the collection, and for assessments, suggested standards are aggregated from the questions in the assessment.  Simply clicking the + plus sign of the suggested standard tags the standard to the collection or assessment.

Student Experience

Improved Independent Learning

When studying independently, students can easily view featured courses and continue studying the courses, collections or assessments they have bookmarked.
