In further support of personalized learning styles in the differentiated classroom, JogNog’s iPad app now allows students to draw directly on-screen while answering quiz questions. Visual learners can draw diagrams and work out equations with just a simple tap of the scratchpad icon.

The scratchpad tool adds to the JogNog Achievement System’s portfolio of capabilities to support different learning styles by students, including differentiated assessment, a wide range of question types, and flexible incentives.

“For many students, scratch paper complements their thinking process,” noted Stephen Smith, CEO of JogNog. “With the scratchpad feature on the iPad, we’ve enhanced our online assessment system to allow for more free and unconstrained thinking and to further support personalized learning.”
