Our fabulous Moby makeover is finally here! In addition to a spiffy new layout, students will now be able to customize colors and backgrounds on their Moby student dashboard. They'll also be able to choose brand new Moby friends or create custom friends. What a great way to start the school year!
If you pop into Moby Assessments today, you might notice a few things have changed. We now have a new category of assessments called "Fluency Tests" and a brand new "Alphabet" assessment!
Slides are great when they’re on the playground. But in the classroom? The “summer slide” that many students experience between the last day of one school year and the first of the next can cost students two months of grade level equivalency in math skills. And that’s not all; knowledge retention in every subject can be affected.
That loss is hard on students, but it’s equally frustrating for teachers, who work hard to make every school day count. Thanks to the “slide,” they may as well have stopped teaching in April!
It’s no wonder so many teachers have started organizing MobyMax Summer Contests. Rather than just having students read through a few books or practice random multiplication tables, contests keep students from losing what they learned the previous year. In fact, with MobyMax, students actually gain new knowledge between June and September, enabling them to return to school raring to go.
We're giving away $25,000 worth of class parties to 1,000 lucky teachers! Not only is this a fun way to end the school year, but you will be helping us improve our assessments. Your class party is our way of saying thank you.
It's easy to participate and win - just follow the steps outlined below.
To enter to win a class party, make sure your students complete a Math Benchmarker after April 15th, 2018.
More great fact assessments have arrived at Moby! We just released a new set of assessments for Addition and Multiplication. These assessments test students' fact knowledge for numbers 0-12.
Learning basic facts is key to a student's success in advanced math. That's why we've released a new set of assessments for Division and Subtraction! These assessments test students' fact knowledge for numbers 0-12.
Subtraction and Division Skill Checker have a wide range of tests; some evaluate students on just one fact, while others test a range of facts. With more questions per skill than our Math Skill Checker, you'll have a better sense of exactly which facts your students need to practice.
All the reports you rely on in Moby Assessments are right here with Subtraction and Division Skill Checker. Check out your results by student, skill, or individual test!
Addition and Multiplication Skill Checker are just around the corner! Stay tuned, and we'll keep you updated with more great Moby news.
We just released an awesome new way to assess your early learners: Early Math Skill Checker! These assessments test students on introductory math concepts, such as counting and cardinality, number sequencing, the relationship between numbers and quantities, and number object correspondence. Just like other Moby Assessments, these new tests are aligned with CCSS.
Has MobyMax cracked the code on inspiring and engaging gifted and talented students? After you watch a new video featuring AGP students at McKitrick Elementary School in Florida, you’ll see that is indeed the case. The video showcases several gifted students, along with teacher Chris Godshall, who explain, in their own words, how Moby Math enables them to learn better, faster.
One student in the video raves about the endless opportunities for learning offered by MobyMax. “It doesn’t ever end lessons for you,” he says. “If you finish a lesson, you don’t wait until you have a new lesson assigned. You can just keep on going and learning new things.”
AGP Teacher Chris Godshall has been teaching for 16 years. In his interview, he says he uses MobyMax with his AGP class because it helps students at so many different levels. “Some have gaps to fill within the math standards, and some need to be enriched within the math standards.”
We know teachers are always on the lookout for the best ways to assess their students' reading. Identifying critical reading skills gaps at an early age is the first step to ensuring that students are strong readers for life. To help build up a classroom full of great readers, we have released a new subject in Pinpoint Assessments: Foundational Reading! Aligned with CCSS, Foundational Reading Skill Checker and Benchmarker allow teachers to comprehensively assess their students' reading skills.
