Problem Statement

We have been using AR, IXL, Raz-Kids, and other programs. Each program needed our teachers to spend considerable amount of time each day to setup assignments to challenge each student at their appropriate level. This process was not only tedious for teachers but was also ineffective and unsustainable.

ScootPad Solution

ScootPad has been a valuable teaching and learning resource for my classroom. One of the best features is that it is adaptive, and that all students are challenged at the appropriate level. All common core standards are addressed, and the testing practice simulates the actual standardized test. Students are focused and highly motivated to succeed. Ebooks are of high interest and include in-line quizzes to help improve comprehension.

Impact and Results

We started using ScootPad because we wanted a teaching tool that would help prepare students for the SBACC test. The simulation tests were helpful because they included similar click/drag and multiple answer type problems as the SBACC. All teachers at our school decided to use ScootPad with their classes, and test scores were noticeably higher this year.
