New Edulastic Features for Back-to-School 2022

Create a Polar Coordinate Graphing Question and Piecewise Functions

Hey math teachers! Graphing in Edulastic keeps getting better. You can now create and assign students polar coordinate graphing questions. These are particularly helpful if you are a high school or college-level math educator who teaches Calculus II or AP Calculus.

Anyone with a Premium or Free account can now assign students graphing questions focusing on piecewise functions. This new capability helps with posing or asking about piecewise functions that are accompanied by visualization of the function on a graph. 

Quiz and Homework Added to Assignment Types

2022 welcomes two new assignment-type designations: Homework and Quiz categories are joining Common Assessments, Class Assessments, and Practice Assessment. Categorize assignment types on the Test Behavior page to sort and view reports and data by category. For example, this feature is super helpful for looking at homework performance vs. class assessments!

More Control Around Hints

Teachers and admins can choose to show hints to students during tests, and, as a new feature, you can. View who looked at hints while reviewing questions, so you’ll know which students needed a little extra help.

You can also opt to dock points from students who view hints and give full credit to students who answer on their own — they may lose a few points for viewing a hint, but it’s more encouraging than not answering at all! You can find this option in the test settings when assigning.

Common Assessment Controls

For Enterprise Administrators
In order to help school and district leaders ensure fair and even distribution of common assessments, we’ve added controls to assist in how those assessments can be handled when passed to teachers.

Common assessments may now be shared to teachers in a manner that provides view-only access and prevents the assessment from being redirected to students. This protects the assessment content and ensures that the assessment may only be taken by each student one time, improving consistency and quality of assessment roll-out and results. This is great news for any admins who deliver benchmarks, interims, CFAs and other common assessments!
