With assessON Teacher Edition, teachers can create classes and custom groups based on different skill levels to facilitate differentiation. What’s more, reports of students’ activities and results are available at the individual, group and classroom level against national curriculum requirements. This enables teachers to identify individual strengths and weaknesses and intervene at the right time.

As an interactive assessment tool, teachers can choose to create and assign online assessments, and/or let students use assessON on their own for extra revision and practice. The ability for students to create their own assessments and homework tasks, and receive instant feedback, inspires student independence and accountability for learning.
