The latest version of NetSupport School, v11, extends the product’s ability to help teachers assess student progress instantly and continually. Features such as instant Student Surveys and the customizable Test Designer are joined by a new and unique Question and Answer module, built around current teaching practices for continual assessment of learning. This module allows teachers to ask questions to the whole class, gauge student answers and understanding, introduce new questioning styles to the lesson, develop peer assessment opportunities, and track rewards for either individuals or teams.
“The quiz/survey feature was extremely important to us. Once we had used it in the demo version, we knew it was something we did not want to be without. Also, NetSupport School is extremely easy to learn for non-technology related teachers. Lab teachers are ecstatic with the possibilities of NetSupport School. For the first time, they feel like they are really in control of the lab and student work.”

Extending its capabilities further, and proving its relevance to the latest technological trends, NetSupport School v11 includes support not only for Google Chrome OS and Windows 8, but also for tablet and smart-phone technology. NetSupport School’s new Tutor Assistant app is compatible with Apple iOS devices, Android tablets and smart phones, and the Kindle Fire, meaning that teachers now can continue to monitor and collaborate with their pupils while having the flexibility to move around the classroom.
NetSupport School can be used on any Windows computer and is designed to work flawlessly over both wired and wireless networks. Increasingly, schools are embracing new PC technologies, and NetSupport School also works in terminal server, shared resource, virtual desktop, and thin/zero client computing environments.
