We were trying to get a better sense of how teachers were meeting the standards across all of our courses including those with custom standards. Then, tracking student progress across our school.

Product Use: MasteryConnect helped us track how students were performing by showing standard based evidence of success. We were even able to add our own custom set of standards for courses that didn't have them readily available and publish them for our teachers to use across our district. We have also moved all of our mid-terms and finals to be through MasteryConnect which saves tens of thousands of sheets of paper per year. Finally, our school is the host of our district 8th grade algebra for high school credit course and we are able to administer the district wide assessment using mastery connect and collect data to determine success of individual schools in their math programs and offer teacher professional development to further develop their ability to prepare the students to pass the course with high school credit.

What Worked and What Didn't: For the most part everything has worked as expected or exceeded our expectations. Very rarely we encounter an issue when we have too many students in our school using the platform and they run into a submission problem. In the newer version of the app answers are saved frequently automatically so it really isn't an issue. We've also been able to workout peak testing time with MasteryConnect's support so they have been great at accommodating our needs.
