    My new favorite tool... FREE Assessment Data Collection and Analysis made simple for ANY content area.

    • Cristina Heffernan - This is a great way to start with online data collection. When you want to move to open response or short response check out ASSISTments. I would say it is the next step, or just start with ASSISTments. Check it out. http://www.assistments.org There message is spot on, teachers should let computers do what they are good at so teachers can do what they got into teaching to do.

    • Mr. Klonowski - Thank you for the share. I will be looking at assistments this week. Would it be ok if I do a similar blog post on what I discover?

      • Nov 12, 2013
    • Cristina Heffernan - You bet. We are a university based project and we don't really have a marketing budget. We do however want to reach a Million users in 3 years. So share away and if you have any questions as you learn we are happy to help, our tutorials are found at our website.

    I would like to receive information regarding Language Arts that will enhance some of the basic tools needed to improve my students writing skills.

      • Cristina Heffernan - Have you ever given an "Open Response" question in ASSISTments?

        • Oct 9, 2013
      • Mrs. Baccus - No. Can you send me the information

    • Ms. Welch-Bucceri - Any chance that next year kids can log into Assistements through Edmodo the way they can for some apps .... No password; Edmodo is their portal?

    • Cristina Heffernan - That is a great idea, We have a student this summer who is going to be looking into how we can take advantage of the Edmodo App feature. I will tell him your idea.

    Motivate your students to perform well on the assessment.

    • Mrs. James - That's clever! I'll be showing this tomorrow before my kids take their assessment. Thanks!

    I don't know how to comment on your reply :) But I am using google chrome
    • Cristina Heffernan - Ok in Chrome on a mac. I use the two finger scroll. Then if you go to the edge of the box with the data, move a bit to the right and two finger scroll, move a bit more and do it again and it should scroll. See if that works. In Firefox the bar is just there :-)

    I am looking at the assignment report...I can scroll across the page to see new assignments but cannot find a way to scroll down to see all of my students. Any suggestions?
    • Cristina Heffernan - Hi Jen, My first question to you is what browser are you in. The scroll bars show up very differently in different browsers. Lets start there.

    what do I need to do to join the AB009 class. I have an account with students and I have completed the 5 lessons.
    • Cristina Heffernan - Hi Jean, The Edmodo code is: n0hvmz Once you join you should just introduce yourself and then Andrew will put you in the first lesson.

    Hi,

    Is there a possibility to translated ASSISTments into the Dutch language?
    • Cristina Heffernan - You can type your questions in whatever language you want. There is a fine skin of english but I suspect most dutch students can handle this. The title of the Problem set and the text etc in an assistment are all something the author types. You can tell me how well any translation programs work.

    Attention iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch Users

    The release of Apple's newest operating system iOS 6 for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch has introduced compatibility issues between Safari and many web applications, including ASSISTments. In the case of ASSISTments, many of you have been seeing sporadic errors which prevent you from completing your assignments. While the ASSISTments developers pursue a solution, we recommend you download the Google Chrome web browser and use it with ASSISTments. Chrome can be found and installed via Apple's App Store (at no charge) or by following this link.

    We appreciate your understanding and apologize any inconvenience.

    • Mrs. Schneider - Have these issues been resolved?

      • Feb 17, 2013
    • ASSISTments - Hi, Yes but we have not released the new version yet. That said we have lots of students using ASSISTments on iPads. They just use the Chrome or Google Browsers that can be downloaded for free from the App Store. With those browsers ASSISTments works great.

    Hi Sarah I'm trying

    Alison
    • Ms. Murray - Having looked at the video and comments from the website, I like is the fact that the students revisit the materials taught and so they have the opportunity to strengthen their skill at completing tasks.

      • Cristina Heffernan - Also the idea is that they visit whatever the teacher assigns. It is in the control of the teacher so it is the teacher who knows what to do with the data.

        • Sep 27, 2012
      • Ms. Murray - I've solved the note from Alison Donnelly. We are introducing Edmodo into our school and some of our teachers are testing it out. I would imagine that my colleague saw my post and wrote a reply. Mind you I think she might be interested in this programme!

    • Mrs. Judkins - Is there a way to search for multiple choice format questions in ASSISTments? Our teachers are interested in using it for common assessments but we are awaiting laptop cart purchases so in the meantime we need to give the tests with scantron sheets. I would like to use ASSISTments content to build the assessments so they can later be done in ASSISTments once we have more access for students to computers in the building.
