If you’re like most K12 teachers, creating, administering, and grading tests takes up way too much of your time and attention. You probably feel like your time would be better spent teaching new concepts and ideas rather than working so hard on testing. Echo360 has the solution for you. Our EchoExam software makes creating tests easy, administering tests simple, and grading tests automatic. Continue reading to learn more about how to improve K12 testing with EchoExam.

 

How Do I Best Prepare For Interactive Lectures?

Before the test comes in the classroom or online instruction. The test is a way to measure how successful this instruction has been and how well students have understood the content. So beginning with exceptional content creation is key. EchoAuthor is the part of Echo360’s Echosystem that involves creating lessons for students, whether in person or online.

It’s quick and easy to create content in EchoAuthor because it has dozens of block types and interactive templates for interactive videos, matching exercises, flashcards, and more. Real-time collaboration makes it easy for teaching teams or grade-level instructors to collaborate on course and content creation.

Everything you create in EchoAuthor is reusable as each component is stored individually. You could easily assign a portion of a lesson to a student who missed a particular class or create content for students who need extra support on a specific concept. There’s no need to remake the wheel – each element can be redeployed in the same way or in a different way depending on the needs of the learners.

EchoVideo is another program that helps with course creation and deployment. You can use EchoVideo to stream classes live for students who are not able to participate in person or to create self-paced study units for online education. Editing videos in EchoVideo is as easy as inserting the media with a click of a button. You can add images, short video clips, graphs, or whatever learning aids best supplement the instruction being given.

When students receive comprehensive instruction that includes mini assessments along the way, they are more likely to do well on final unit assessments, making instruction the first step in improving K12 testing.

Once the content is created in EchoAuthor and EchoVideo, it is delivered through EchoEngage. This is Echo360’s online learning platform and is the “classroom” for digital learning and for self-paced activities and homework.

It’s easy to create personalized assignments for students using EchoEngage. This allows you to provide extra support not only for students who are not understanding concepts but also to enrich the learning of students who are ahead of the class.

Creating the K12 test quickly and easily

Once instruction has been provided, it’s time for the test. You can create K12 tests easily with EchoExam. The software comes with a test wizard that allows you to choose topics and associate question banks to create a test in minutes. You can choose how many of each type of question to include in the exam. Once the test is generated, you can review the questions pulled from the bank and swap out any as needed. You can then easily modify the look, reorder the questions, and apply attractive test styles to the exam you have generated.

Administering K12 tests always comes with the chance of test-takers “sharing” answers. One way to improve K12 testing is to take away this temptation. With EchoExam, you can create a different test for each student by scrambling the question order, scrambling the order of multiple-choice options, randomizing the questions that get used from your question bank, and offering different iterations of the same question in some cases. It only takes a few clicks to create different versions of the same test.

EchoExam is connected to just about any textbook you might be using and you can use question banks designed specifically for the book you are using and the unit your students are studying. This makes for the most relevant, effective K12 testing situation.
Using EchoExam’s Test Manager, you can have students’ tests automatically graded and that information can be synced with your LMS so you can view trends by student, by test, and by class.
