Veracity’s Verification awarded Jupiter LMS its highest ranking achievable in the categories of Ease of Use and Teaching and Learning.

Veracity Verification Solutions, a third-party evaluator of EdTech software solutions, has announced Jupiter Ed’s entrance into the Veracity Marketplace after completion of Veracity’s assessment of the learning management system (LMS). Veracity’s Verification awarded Jupiter LMS its highest ranking achievable in the categories of Ease of Use and Teaching and Learning.

The Veracity Verification is a rigorous, third-party product assessment conducted by expert educators – called Guardians – to provide reliable, transparent, and unbiased evidence that connects school district staff with verified technologies – informing sound purchasing decisions and accelerating the path to student success.

Jupiter’s LMS scored 5 out of a maximum score of 5 in Ease of Use with Veracity Guardians highlighting a clean and intuitive interface, making navigation easy for teachers, students, and administrators. Guardians noted contextual elements orienting users to their current location/function, in addition to an extensive help area consistently present.

In addition, Jupiter’s LMS ranked highest in Teaching and Learning with Guardians noting robust feedback options. One educator added, “This is a product that is flexible enough to be used in all types of learning environments and with a single student or a full class. Jupiter also contains multiple means of assessing student work- traditional grades, rubrics, standards. A particular strength in this category is the quick way to document formative assessment performance using the Turn Ins/rubric function.”

Jupiter Vice President Amy Pedigo Carmichael shared, “It feels like we’ve been preparing for the explosion in online learning for the past ten years. We’ve had lots of online learning features in Jupiter since 2012 but a few years ago it was still a struggle to get teachers to use them. When online learning became essential in the spring of 2020, we were able to put all those features to the test when almost all our teachers started using these features at the same time. Our schools were able to seamlessly switch their assignments to our Learning Platform and not be burdened with learning a new system. It was an easy transition to online learning for our schools. We’re glad to see Veracity Guardians and the verification process also reflecting this progress.”

“Although this product is classified as an LMS, it is tightly integrated with Jupiter’s student information system, which is surprisingly simple in design and quick to use. Jupiter LMS has the features and functionality to be an effective tool for delivering instructional content and managing student performance data for school divisions that want a simple and streamlined workflow,” stated Crystal Wilson, who oversees the vetting process as Veracity’s Chief Operating Officer.
