Development a  Learning Pathway to give student access.

A learning path allows you to integrate selected items of digital curriculum content with learning tasks for students.

Students are provided with a unique PIN to allow them to view and use the content and activities online.

Go to Improve via Scootle.  Improve allows you to produce online Quizzes and Tests for student online acces.

The Improve online formative assessment tool is available for you to use in your classroom . Improve was developed to meet a need in schools for an interactive learning system that can be used by teachers and students around Australia to support students to improve their learning outcomes.

Improve creates individual learning paths for your students based on their success and confidence in answering test questions in a low stakes, fun environment. You can create customised tests and quizzes for your students, and access a number of English and mathematics tests and quizzes that already exist within Improve.

Your students join classes via your Improve Teacher PIN code. Using their own secret password they can access the quizzes, tests and learning resources that you have prepared for them. After your students complete a test or quiz, Improve will provide each of them with a report on their test results and with access to one or more activities, based on their results and the level of confidence they indicated in their answers.

You can monitor the completion of tests, quizzes and activities used by all your students. Once two test cycles are complete, you can check to see if your students’ outcomes have improved.
