Secure Online Testing

Cognero has an integrated, secure online testing center for your students. Your students can receive immediate feedback on each question and/or receive a detailed end-of-assignment report to help them know exactly how they are doing.

Complete Reporting System

Cognero allows you to analyze how your students are performing in real time and from multiple approaches to allow for immediate intervention. You can also quickly analyze your questions and perform a gap analysis of student testing.

Institutions or districts can distribute content to instructors to generate unified institutional results. Student data is compiled at the institutional/district level to provide detailed information on student performance at multiple levels.

Dynamic Content

Questions can be dynamically generated through the included algorithmic engine, equation editor, and dynamic graphing tool. Dynamic content allows each student taking an assignment to have their own unique version of the test.

Standards Compliant and Flexible

Cognero imports QTI 1.2 and exports QTI 1.2 and 2.1 to allow content to work with other systems such as Blackboard, Canvas, and D2L. Equations are handled in a MathML compliant equation editor to further promote cross compatibility.

TIME Launches TIME For Kids Classroom App, Features Rich, Original Multimedia Content to Build Literacy, Citizenship

Powered by Cognero, digital teaching tool connects students to the world through nonfiction texts, Common Core-aligned assessments, and interactive support

the Time For Kids Classroom App offers teachers a robust tool that pairs interactive, engaging content with assessments in a platform that meets the needs of the changing classroom.

NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 20, 2014

To meet the ever-changing needs of the 21st century classroom, TIME For Kids is releasing the TIME for Kids Classroom App, a dynamic teaching tool that brings exclusive current events content to life through interactive images, videos, animations, polls, maps and more. The TIME For Kids Classroom App enables teachers to integrate multimedia and real-world connections into their K-6 classrooms, address students’ individual abilities with leveled content, meet Common Core State Standards and put current events into context for young learners.

“In today’s digital world, educators are integrating technology into classroom instruction and the Time For Kids Classroom App offers teachers a robust tool that pairs interactive, engaging content with assessments in a platform that meets the needs of the changing classroom,” said Nellie Cutler, managing editor for TIME For Kids. “Our mission is to open the world to students so that they become lifelong readers and discerning, informed citizens, and our Classroom App offers students engaging content that accommodates their learning needs.”

The TIME For Kids Classroom App supports the realities of the modern classroom with immersive content for multiple levels of learners. With audio of text and vocabulary definitions to support learners, as well as a version of select articles for the grade level below, teachers are able to teach the same highly engaging content to the whole class while simultaneously addressing the individual needs of their students.

A team of veteran journalists and educators developed the content using a whole child approach, which takes grade and reading levels into consideration. Sensitive content is also vetted by teacher advisors who have a deep understanding of their students’ emotional and educational needs and offer a critical classroom perspective. The topics covered directly impact students’ lives and facilitate discussion among teachers, parents and students. This whole-child approach extends to the assessments in the Classroom App. Each question in the interactive quizzes is aligned to grade-appropriate Common Core English Language Arts Standards. Teachers can monitor student performance against each standard and pinpoint areas where students need extra assistance through assessment and reporting powered by the Cognero assessment platform.

TIME For Kids is offering a free trial of the app, which includes full access to student assessments, through Dec. 31, 2014. To learn more about the app and to register, visit timeforkids.com/tfkapp. The Classroom App is currently available for iPad, and TIME For Kids plans to extend to additional platforms.
