    Very disappointed with the price change. Sorry but I will not be able to have your product again at this price. :(
    • School 21 - Hi Mrs. Witts.
      Thank you for the note. We realize the price change will unfortunately make it difficult for some teachers to continue using School 21. We do have multi- class discounts if you are able to access budget at your school level. If you'd like to discuss those opportunities, please feel free to email us at suppor@school21.net.
      Thanks!

    • Mrs. Witts - Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, I work at a charter school and only have two math classes 7/8th of 30 students each. If the price is over $250 for both, I am priced out.

    • School 21 - Hi Mrs. Witts.
      Because you've been an enthusiastic user of School 21, we'd like to tell you about our Vanguard Customer Program. We just emailed you, and would love to hear back about whether you'd like to participate.
      Thanks!

    I went to renew my Algebra I app and was just sure the $600 was a typo as it is a substantial increase over last year's pricing. As a public school teacher there is just no way I can swing that for my classes. Why the huge price increase? Can you possibly offer a version that does not have all of the reporting but would still allow students to practice and maybe generate their own report of their progress that they could turn in? I am so disappointed to lose this app :(
    • School 21 - Hi, Mrs. Williams.
      Thanks so much for your enthusiasm for School 21. We did institute a price change to be more commensurate with market rates. Unfortunately, we do not have a lower-priced version at this time. We hope you and your school will consider School 21 in the future, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at support@school21.net.
      Thanks again.

    • Mrs. Williams - I’m so disappointed as this was a good app for my lower level Algebra students to remediate weak areas, but a 1400% price increase is staggering. I understand the need to make a profit, but most paid Edmodo apps are priced comparably to the old rate. As public school teachers with increasingly tight budgets, we are paying for apps out of pocket, and $600 per class is way out of our price range :(
      If you decide to offer a lower-priced version please let me know!
      Thanks!

    • School 21 - Hi Mrs. Williams.
      We've just launched a Vanguard Customer Program, which may address some of the price concerns you've expressed. We are offering participation to teachers who have enthusiastically embraced School 21. Please email us at support@school21.net, and we can tell you more about the program.
      Thanks!

    How many students can I sign up in one group?
    • School 21 - Hi, Karen.
      The price you see for the School 21 apps is for a 30-student group. You can exceed the 30-student level, at which point there will be a pro-rated per-student additional charge. There isn't a technical limit to the number of students who can be in a group on School 21 (there may be in Edmodo). However, from a practical perspective, you'll probably find the School 21 reports (which are designed for a single class at a time) a little more useful if you keep the group size in the range of a class size (less than 40 or so). You can exceed that limit,

    • Karen Bottiglieri - Why the enormous jump in price? You have a great product but I cannot spend $600 for each of my 5 classes to renew. I believe I spent about $40 per class per app last year. For $3000 I could get a clicker response system and a tablet. This is a great resource for students to use at home but I cannot say that they use it enough to ever spend that amount of money. Please let me know if you end up bringing the price down to a reasonable amount.

    Is the $45 grade 7 common core math app still available?
    • School 21 - Hi, Mr. Hackett.
      School 21 modified the pricing and product mix, so the $45 apps are no longer available. If you have any questions about the apps that are in the store, please let us know.
      Thanks for your interest in School 21!

    I'm trying to figure out how to track student progress in my Algebra 1 program, but I'm confused. All the reports say that it is a "premium feature." What do I have access to in terms of reports? I paid $45 for the program.
    • School 21 - Great question, Mr. Espinosa.
      At School 21's $45 app level, you get access to Status Reports (the far left report on your Teacher Reports page). These detailed reports show each student status on a concept-level basis, so you can pinpoint exactly which students need help on which concepts.
      School 21's Plus! apps, which cost $149, give you access to our premium reports, which include:
      Activity & Achievement Reports: very detailed, graphical reports that tell you everything about student activity on School 21.
      Assignments: the ability to assign

    Adaptive Assessment and School 21

    A quick note on a key component of School 21's apps: Adaptive Assessment.

    Under our Mastery-Based Model (see Sep 25 post), School 21 assesses each student's capability level for each concept, and communicates that capability level to you, the teacher. When a student first engages with a concept, though, she likely is still learning it. So, School 21 has created an Adaptive Assessment engine, that starts each student out with a simple problem for the concept. As the student gets problems correct or incorrect, School 21 adjusts the difficulty level up or down. Practice and success on relatively easy problems leads to success on more difficult problems, and ultimately to Mastery of the concept.

    Along the way, School 21 gives the learner support, with problem explanations (after the student has answered the question) and learning resources specifically about the concept at hand, curated from around the web.

    The result is that School 21's Adaptive Assessment engine starts by meeting the student where he is at, and then adapts to his capability level to incrementally improve his understanding of the concept, until ultimately he achieves success.

    School 21's Mastery-Based Model

    As you probably know, School 21's apps utilize a mastery-based model of learning. We divide each course (e.g., Grade 8 Common Core Math) into bite-sized concepts. Each student's job is to master every concept.

    For students, our mastery-based model makes learning more achievable, by giving a clear set of attainable goals to each learner. Each student always knows her mastery status for each concept, and what she needs to master next. (Our Game-Like Incentives also reward students along the way for concept mastery--more on those in a later post).

    For teachers, School 21's mastery-based model helps you to see exactly where each student is on the course's learning path, where students are struggling, and where they are excelling. We do all this with rich Teacher Reports that give you detailed insights into full-class and individual achievement. (More on Teacher Reports in a later post, too).

    With technology enabling mastery-based learning, we believe that students can achieve greater levels of success, and teachers can have greater insight into how to best help learners.

    If you have experience using a mastery-based model (with School 21 or any other method), feel free to share your insights here in the School 21 Community.

    Thanks!
