SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading formative assessment and mastery learning solution provider MasteryConnect announced today the official launch of their new mobile app for educators, the MasteryConnect Teacher App. This announcement is made in conjunction with the beta release of the company’s new mobile evidence capture.
The MasteryConnect Teacher App makes performance-based assessment more accessible than ever, allowing teachers to become truly mobile in the classroom. With the app, teachers use iPads to easily gather in-the-moment formative data while on the move, and then use that data to meet the individual needs of students. Evidence capture for the new app provides educators an accessible way to document student performance at the assessment level, with the ability to upload photographs and notes, then tie them directly to that assessment within the MasteryConnect interface.
Evidence capture reinforces MasteryConnect’s mission of delivering solutions to help teachers identify students levels of understanding in real time in order to further personalized learning for each student.
“This evidence capture provides teachers a clear, authentic view of student learning. It’s a game changer for teachers as they document student learning and target interventions,” explains Trenton Goble, chief learning officer, MasteryConnect.
This initial evidence capture beta is the first step in the MasteryConnect roadmap to provide teachers ways to more easily engage parents with artifacts of real student learning, and pushes the company closer to providing a portfolio of evidence for all stakeholders in a child’s education to see.
The company is showcasing the new Teacher App and the evidence capture functionality at its annual user conference, MasteryCon, this week in Park City, Utah. MasteryConnect is now recruiting current users to participate in the open beta testing of the evidence capture, with plans to release it to all users this fall.
