    NEW: Generate Multi-part Weighted Assessments (2017-08-05)

    Sometimes it is useful to create muti-part tests where different parts count differently. For example, a social studies teacher may wish to give a test that has multiple-choice items and an essay and then to weight the essay more. An elementary teacher may want to give several reading comprehension assessments and then to aggregate the score (so each assessment may count the same).This is now easily done here at Teacher's Web Host.

    The new reading comprehension assessment suite of apps includes extensive test and item analysis and the usual strong testing security.

The charts can be easily embedded into form letters home, another time saving feature.

    Monitoring Student Work Online (2017-02-26)

    When my school introduced ChromeBooks, it was revolutionary. And, like all revolutions, there were some rough spots. Keeping students on-task when the World Wide Web is at their fingertips is hard at first. One answer that worked well for my district was installing software that allowed teachers to see everything students are doing from their own computers and to record this. Knowing they were being spied on annoyed students, but improved on-task behavior.At Teacher's Web Host, the need to see... Read More

    Google is great... but (2017-02-26)

I almost feel like they're watching as I compose this blog entry even now!But for me, Google and Google Classroom is not a full "learning management system". I have to use Google Classroom to teach some elementary school classes this year because it's part of the curriculum, so I know it's strengths and weaknesses. Google Classroom was mostly built by...

    Advantages Over Other Class Content Management Systems (2017-02-17)

    Teacher's Web Host has many advantages over other content management systems such as Google Classroom.
