Both the new Standards feature and Academic Reports add measurable value for educators and students using the collaborative LMS to meet Common Core learning requirements.
Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
My Big Campus, the social Learning Management System (LMS) from Lightspeed Systems, is pleased to announce the release of two exiting new features to the Schoolwork interface. Educators can now add State, Common Core, and Custom Standards to content and assignments in My Big Campus. In addition, teachers are able to generate new Academic Reports, based on those Standards, to easily see which students are meeting learning goals and which may need extra help with certain concepts. Both the new Standards feature and Academic Reports add measurable value for educators and students using the collaborative LMS to meet Common Core learning requirements.
A valuable component of My Big Campus, Schoolwork allows teachers to create, assign, and grade various types of quizzes and assignments and gives students the ability to manage their tasks, submit assignments, and communicate with their teacher. Recognizing this need, My Big Campus has added State, Common Core, and Custom Standards to the Schoolwork feature. Educators can now attach Standards to individual questions and entire assignments and report on progress—ensuring students are receiving and learning relevant content.
In order to ensure Standards are a useful component of My Big Campus, developers created the new Academic Reports feature. These reports can be generated for either an individual student or an entire class, and allow educators to see measurable data on academic proficiency.
With Academic Reports, teachers can:
•Track class and student progress on Standards-based content
•Easily understand report results with color coded score ranges
•Simplify the task of creating multiple reports based on the same Standard with the Learning Target feature
•Utilize Adaptive Learning to identify and push supplemental resources
•Receive retroactive results on tests and assignments students have already submitted
•And more—all on an easy-to-use interface, built right in to their LMS
As the needs of educators and students change, My Big Campus continues to evolve. By combining the functionality of an LMS with a social networking site and library of educational resources, the solution is able to offer schools with a complete classroom management tool.
The addition of Standards and Academic Reporting provide a measurable, value-added service for educators and ensures students are benefitting from relevant content.
Lightspeed Systems is focused on working together with schools to create safe, mobile, and collaborative learning environments. With these new updates to My Big Campus, educators have even more opportunity to do just that.
