We are excited to announce these updates and enhancements that are coming to your Knowre Math experience for the 2020-2021 school year. These developments are the direct result of administrator, teacher and student feedback and questions. We are excited that they are nearly in your hands.
Identify and address incoming skill gaps with the Ready? Check. Go!
The Ready? Check. Go! is a new assignment designed specifically for the beginning of the school year and for students who join the class midyear. This 18-question long assignment (can be completed within one class period!) identifies gaps in student knowledge and skills that may make it more difficult for them to be successful within their new math class.
No matter how the school year is starting for you, the Ready? Check. Go! can help you to determine each student’s readiness for their new curriculum, while simultaneously identifying and helping you address those skill gaps at the individual and class wide levels.
Assign math topics from across Knowre Math’s curricula all from one place
This year we heard from many teachers that they wanted to be able to assign work from any curriculum to their students without needing to create multiple classes on their Dashboard. This request is now a reality!
When a student receives an assignment from a curriculum that is different then the curriculum assigned to their class, they will not be able to easily tell which curriculum it is from. It is our hope that this will support instances where students need to focus on topics that are below their current grade level without impacting their confidence.
Dive into the brand new grade 7 and grade 8 curricula
Knowre Math now offers a stand alone 7th and 8th grade curriculum, in addition to our Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 curricula. While the Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 curricula were being used in many 7th and 8th grade classrooms, we heard from some of you that the pacing was not quite right for your traditional-pathway 7th and 8th grade classrooms. Check out the details of these new curricula to see how they may better meet your needs.
Set up your student accounts to make it easier for them to get started
In addition to sharing a class code with students so they can sign up on their own, you are now able to create students’ accounts for them directly from your Teacher Dashboard. You’ll be able to create them one by own, or through simply uploading a csv. As many schools begin the new year with remote instruction, this option may come in extra handy. This option will be found under the “Add Students to this Class” button inside each class on your Teacher Dashboard.
No matter how your community is kicking off the new school year, we hope that these program updates and enhancements will be helpful to you and your students. If you have any questions or need any support getting started, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are here to help!
