There’s been a dramatic shift in the type of assessments being delivered through MasteryConnect. Last year alone we saw a 40% increase in item-based assessments, which means two things: students have more ready access to devices, and our community has a growing appetite to author technology enhanced items. To meet this demand, MC Item Authoring has undergone a very welcome upgrade for the 2018-19 school year.

  • You now have plenty of space to work with authoring and preview panes that have been expanded to full-screen width.
  • Get a better overall experience with updated styling elements and flows.
  • Add Passages and Tools, like calculators and rulers, to your items from one simple location.
  • Use pre-created templates for many of the more complex item types. With these templates, you’ll learn more about authoring controls, while getting a preview of how students see that type of question.

Learn more about authoring dozens of item types in this MasteryConnect Help Center article.

 

We understand how important every minute is in the classroom, so we’re always looking for ways to make navigation in MC a little easier. With new updates, you’ll be able to get to the features that are most important to you in a snap.

  1. You’ll now see the word “Home” next to the logo in the upper right corner, so you always know how to get there.
  2. Curriculum Maps are an integral feature for many users in our community. To make them easily accessible, we’ve moved Maps to the main header (formerly under the Trackers menu).
  3. Custom Standards are now found under the new Maps menu.
