New Features and Updates

District Mastery: Standards-Based Gradebook

  • As part of our overall effort to help educators further personalize the learning experience for each of their students, we’ve replaced the current Mastery tool with the Standards-Based Gradebook.
  • The new Mastery Gradebook is designed to provide teachers with enhanced ways to track student progress, provide the insights they need to take meaningful action, and designed to provide students and parents with a way to track student progress towards mastery.
  • The Standards-Based Gradebook is available to teachers in Enterprise districts using District-Wide Learning Objectives.

District Mastery: Reset District-wide Standards Library

  • Schoology’s new District Mastery system is a centralized approach to standards which requires that all standards have the same hierarchical level.
  • This update allows users to delete their district objective library and reimport their standards if they experience an issue with the initial import such as the incorrect number of learning objective levels.

Notepad for Assessments

  • We're added a notepad tool for course assessments (Enterprise) and managed assessments (AMP).
  • Students can use the notepad tool to take notes, create reminders or lists, and compose drafts during attempts on managed assessments and course assessments. Instructors may enable this feature under assessment settings.
