StudyBlue Introduces Class Stats to Enhance Student Performance and Give Teachers Better Insight Inside the Classroom
New interface bridges student and teacher collaboration for educational success
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (August 14, 2013)
StudyBlue, the leading mobile and social study platform, today announced a new formative assessment tool, “Class Stats,” that builds upon the self assessment functionality already in place for students. For some time, StudyBlue has scored students’ study sessions and tracked their progress on the path towards mastering their material. Class Stats aggregates this study data so instructors can easily monitor individual and group study routines, track student progress, and quickly adapt their instruction to focus on what students are struggling with most.
“Teachers want better ways to understand and motivate study behavior that’s directly connected to improved outcomes.” said Becky Splitt, StudyBlue’s CEO. ” With Class Stats they can seamlessly integrate StudyBlue into their routine without having to change curriculum, learn new technology or secure district funds.” Class Stats gives teachers the ability to track student progress with a weighted aggregated average “Class” or “Individual” score – providing an instant view of how a student is advancing. The tool is built on top of the mobile study app that millions of students are already choosing to use. Students use the app to study content authored or designated by their teacher, create their own study outlines and flashcards, and connect with a community of peers and the large library of shared study material.
In parallel with the introduction of Class Stats, StudyBlue has added the ability for teachers to quickly and easily identify themselves as such, and introduce the app to an entire class or group of students, across multiple devices, at once.
Class Stats and StudyBlue’s portfolio of offerings have cross platform availability. Recently announcing their Android app as part of the Google Play store, StudyBlue provides support for iOS, Android, iPad, Android tablets and desktop devices. Students can seamlessly pick up their studying where they left off, across any connected device, making StudyBlue the leader in providing multi-modal study tools that power the current generation of mobile learners.
