Edmodo Introduces 'Snapshot,' a Formative Assessment Tool

Edmodo, a free K-12 social learning network that connects more than 35 million teachers, administrators, students and parents, announced the release of Snapshot, the company’s formative assessment tool.

Snapshot is designed to provide real-time insight into student proficiency in educational standards and help teachers immediately address any learning gaps. Snapshot is customized for both teachers and administrators with distinct functionality aimed at improving student learning outcomes. It currently features Common Core and a range of other U.S. state standards.

Accessible from the main Edmodo homepage, Snapshot for Teachers is free and easy to use. Featuring standards-aligned questions for grades 3-12 Math and ELA, the tool generates quizzes based on a teacher’s classroom curriculum. Teachers can assign the quiz to their students, pre- or post-lesson, or anytime that works with their classroom schedule. Upon quiz completion, teachers have instant visibility into student and overall class progress with intuitive visuals, allowing them the opportunity to identify gaps in knowledge at the class, group and individual levels.

“Teachers are always pressed for time, but we still want feedback on our students’ progress,” said Kate Baker, high school English teacher at Southern Regional High in New Jersey. “The fact that Snapshot creates the questions, manages the choices, and reports the results by standard directly in the platform – and does this for free – is such an amazing tool that enhances an already versatile platform.”

Simultaneous with the launch of Snapshot for the classroom, Edmodo is also debuting Snapshot for Schools, which is a premium version of the Snapshot suite aimed at school and district administrators. It extends the existing admin feature set of Edmodo and enables school and district professionals to gauge progress on educational standards in real time at the school and district level.
