Usage: I would use it initially at the classroom level. I would need some time to explore the types of questions that can be built and how it works on mobile devices.

Strengths: The dashboards look useful and the ability to easily group students based on their results is useful. The assessment library could be useful as well, I would need to know the quality of the questions - possibly see what type of questions are in each test.

Suggestions for Improvement: I would allow interactive quizzes - similar to what Edulastic offers, mirror SBAC or PARC type questions.
Possibly have the library be an item bank where I could pick the questions rather than a bank of tests with multiple questions already loaded.
For the Schools product have a way to sync from SIS to keep classes updated.

Verdict: I would look at the competition and need to see if it stands out above others enough to warrant a district solution. There seems to be some overlap with what Edulastic provides and some other platforms.

Strengths: Dashboards are easy to read and can be used from the class to the district

Suggestions for Improvement: None,

Verdict: Pricing model favors the district and the fact that teachers can use it for free helps build proficiencies in use prior to adoption
