At Studies Weekly, we get a lot of feedback from you, our valued customers. The other day, one of our teachers reached out on Facebook to ask whether the autosave function would be available soon for online K-6 testing. We want that teacher to know–like we want all of you to know–that we’ve been listening.
As a direct result of your feedback, we have begun to roll out a few notable changes that might interest you. By February 1, 2018, we will have updated the following elements on our site:
- Autosave Function on Assessments
- Student Gradebook and More Comprehensive Reports
- Professional Development Usability Updates
Over the next few weeks, we will have more video tutorials available to our users to help them navigate these changes. In the meantime, we will be providing a brief explanation here on our blog. For this week, we’ll briefly go over the new autosave function on assessments when going through our online K-6 testing.
For students, the assessment screen will look the same. All of your students should be familiar with logging in to their student accounts by now. However, if you have not set up student accounts, visit this blog for a brief rundown of what to expect and some short instructions for getting it setup for your class.
You know the value of this update if you’ve had students taking an assessment when the power or internet goes out. Now, the system will autosave assessments upon event. In other words, the system will autosave responses every time a student types text in a field or selects an answer.
Please note that we will have the Autosave feature available with the next update on February 1, 2018. The system will not autosave their answers as they go through the test on any responses completed before this date.
As always, if you have any questions or feature requests, know that we’re listening. We want to hear from you. Go ahead and leave us a comment below, reach out on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), or give us a call at (866) 311-8734.
