(EDINA, MN) June 25, 2014 – Naiku, provider of award winning, next generation classroom assessment software, announced today a suite of new enhancements designed to help teachers accelerate student learning through better assessment.
Naiku‘s cloud-based software is used by schools and districts to quickly measure and track each student’s proficiency of standards in any subject and grade, and is used by individual teachers as well as by groups of teachers with common assessments. Using metacognitive tools of confidence, justification/journaling, and reflection, Naiku uniquely provides teachers with a ready means of enabling teacher-student interactive feedback as part of everyday assessment to help drive student achievement.
“Our latest release is in direct response to requests from our educator customers,” said Greg Wright, Chief Executive Officer for Naiku. “Teachers use Naiku to measure and track student performance by standard, and they appreciate how Naiku allows them to quickly accomplish this. All of our latest enhancements are directly related to helping teachers easily accomplish their goals.”
Naiku’s latest release enhances support for standards-based grading, increases the number of reports immediately available to teachers and administrative staff, and expands item and test creation options. One of the key features added at the request of customers was to provide for the direct transport of student proficiency level by standard to any gradebook, expanding upon the existing capability of direct transfer of test scores to any gradebook.
“Standards-based grading is popular with many of our school customers,” stated Naiku CEO, Greg Wright. “They have loved the ability to quickly measure and track student learning by any standard. Now they can easily send the performance directly to the gradebook as well.”
