Product Updates

Rubrics to Grade Free Response Questions
Provide students with detailed feedback by grading free response questions using rubrics. Visit our support center for detailed explanations and screenshots on how to create a rubric, add it to a free response question and grade it.
Turn an Assessment ON and OFF
In the classroom’s Course Map, teachers have the ability to turn an assessment OFF until they are ready to assign it to their students.

Partner Libraries

We have added nine new libraries from our partners such as California Academy of Science, PhET, Excelsior College OWL and Partners for Sustainable Development (PSD). The libraries consist of courses, collections, assessments, resources and questions that can be remixed and shared with students.

Featured Course

Integrated Science Phenomena and Solutions is a great course for using phenomena-based learning developed around the Next Generation Science Standards. The course is developed for teachers to use in both numeric grade-based classrooms and proficiency-based classrooms. It is highly innovative and engages with three-dimensional science learning.
