I have been using the flipped classroom model for several years, but still relied on paper packets. Going remote this year caused me to reevaluate how to present material to my students in a more digital form. The learning experience was the best solution I found to do this. I can link websites, or other assignments in the content. Video playback is great, and my students have very little to no issues in watching videos put in the learning experience. I set my assessments to be at 75% to be marked as complete. This helped the students to achieve better than just passing. Students like the fact I can monitor them as they are working and let them know where they are having issues. As students work on the assessments, I pull them up on the check assessment and refresh the screen. I can check their work in real time and offer help as needed. If the students are not in class, they ask me to check the work and I can tell them what they need to correct. Students have told me they like this real time feedback and the chance to correct their work before they submit.

RTI and assessments have the most important features for me this year. I am the remote Kindergarten teacher. Having detailed accounts of my student’s progress is crucial for me to stay organized and on top of my student’s areas of strength and areas that need more practice. The RtI tracker allows me to set goals and keep, and share, up to date data with other teachers. This was HUGE in December when school was closed. My favorite assessment report to quickly see who knows what and what needs reinforcing is the Item Response Report. So helpful and probably the most useful report for me!

Our school subscribed to eDoctrina a couple years ago, but I never used it much because even though I’m a younger teacher, I tend to be more “old school” and use paper tests and assignments. However, given the new needs with virtual learning, I found that eDoctrina was the best and fastest way to get assignments out to my students in a way that is equitable and accessible to all. I love that I can use the option for text-to-speech for my students that get materials read to them, the options to strike out answer choices, and the multitude of other settings I can use to personalize the assignments for my needs. Moreover, I love that I can reset student passwords myself since everyone knows that can be an issue. Most importantly, the fact that it grades itself for me and imports to SchoolTool is a dream come true! I don’t have to manually enter grades between two tabs going back and forth; a couple clicks and I’m done! Even though I turned to this program finally as a result of necessity, I’m realizing that once school goes back to business as usual that I will still use eDoctrina to save me time and make my work a lot easier. Thank you for making such an amazing product that works exactly like a teacher thinks!

Since we have been using eDoctrina successfully for a few years now, the transition to assessments online with eDoctrina for our remote learners was seamless. Not only do we have the capacity to build and assign assessments, we are now getting the data that we need on our remote learners to truly understand where their strengths and weaknesses with the curriculum. edoctrina’s help desk continues to provide the support that we need when we need it – and we are grateful for the instant replies and live help when needed. It’s the tool that everyone should be using to help transition to online assessments.

Wow! I just had the opportunity to play with this export. I think this will suit us well! I so appreciate what you have done and the speed in which you addressed this issue for us. Thank you so much!

I just wanted to send a note of thanks. We had an issue with one of our machines, and in Doug’s absence trying to resolve the issue was rather difficult. Jason was a great resource and followed us to make sure things were all set. It was not an eDoctrina issue, it was an issue with the machine. Jason offered assistance and made possible suggestions which aided in our resolution.
