SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading assessment and curriculum solution provider MasteryConnect announced today that evidence capture functionality is now available within their mobile Teacher App. Over 100 classrooms around the country were involved in the feedback and development process prior to the official launch to all teachers and students in the MasteryConnect learning community.
The new evidence capture functionality enables teachers to gather authentic student learning during performance-based assessment. Teachers can easily snap a photo of student work, add notes, and view a student’s portfolio of work, ideal for project-based learning environments. And, because the app is available on iPads, this can be done anywhere, anytime learning happens, including field trips, performances, and nontraditional teaching environments. The formative data captured can then be used to personalize learning and target interventions to meet individual student needs.
"MasteryConnect's Teacher App with evidence capture revolutionized mastery learning in my classroom. Having the ability to take photos of student work supports everything we do - from special education to parent-teacher conferences. We are finally able to provide visible, tangible evidence of student learning all in one place," said Kelly D'Annolfo, 8th Grade Language Arts Teacher, Highland Middle School.
The release of evidence capture reinforces MasteryConnect’s mission to deliver innovative solutions to teachers to support their work driving student growth. Additionally, this functionality is the first step to MasteryConnect’s roadmap for student portfolio features that make evidence of student learning readily accessible and shareable with parents, teachers, administrators and students.
The company is showcasing the new Teacher App and the evidence capture functionality at the iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium in San Antonio later this month, as well as other upcoming industry events.
