Taking Assessments from “Old School” to “Next Gen”

As an education technology thought leader, GradeCam continues to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of educators – both in and out of the classroom.

Whether teachers and students are together in person, engaging online, or using a hybrid model, identifying challenges and implementing interventions has never been more crucial. And addressing equity between digital and paper has never been more important.

Fortunately, Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), responsive classrooms, and formative assessments have led to a powerful paradigm shift in the way assessments are viewed and valued.

Rather than simply a means to assign summative grades, assessments are now recognized as smart tools for gathering meaningful data that drives instruction and supports students. The result of this new understanding, however, is a need for more frequent assessments and faster feedback.

GradeCam is responding to these evolutionary and revolutionary changes by expanding the comprehensive feature sets of both all-access individual teacher and school/district assessment solutions – now called Gradient – as well as introducing two new mobile-only assessment options.

"Our focus has always been on empowering educators by addressing their most pressing needs and our expanded access options deliver on that goal with more flexibility and features than ever." - Scott Hickson , GradeCam CEO

As part of this exciting brand offering expansion, current GradeCam users will be able to try out all of GradeCam Gradient’s enhanced features and functionality – free for 60 days – before deciding on which plan best suits their needs moving forward.

Given the increasing needs for responsivity and adaptability in today’s teaching environments, it is entirely fitting that GradeCam continues to raise the bar when it comes to responding and adapting to teachers’ needs.
