Milpitas, CA – August 4, 2014 – ScootPad, a leading adaptive learning platform for grades K-8, today announced the launch of it’s newest feature, Formative Assessments. This feature includes technology-enhanced questions which are dynamic, interactive, and rigorous, all designed to assess student proficiency in Math and ELA.

Formative assessments on ScootPad accelerate the feedback loop and provide teachers with actionable results to differentiate instruction and provide just-in-time intervention. ScootPad helps teachers quickly set up personalized assessments for the Common Core Standards. Once students complete the assessments, teachers have immediate insight into the overall classroom proficiency with the ability to drill-down by student or by standard.

Teachers can track student comprehension using pre and post assessments combined with growth reports to measure progress between assessments. Students will experience 20+ unique, powerful, and interactive question formats, preparing them for technology-enhanced assessments such as PARCC, SBAC, & FSA.

“With Formative Assessments we want to give teachers a powerful and easy to use tool for rapid, daily evaluation of students.” said Bharat Kumar & Maya Gadde, Co-Founders of ScootPad. “This feature helps teachers predict early on, which students need help and in which standards.”
