Verso Learning Launches Formative Assessment App
Verso Learning has launched its formative assessment tool, Verso App, in the United States. The app, which launched seven months ago in the company's home nation of Australia, is currently being used by 1,700 K-12 schools in 95 countries.
Verso App is a formative assessment tool that enables students to submit independent, anonymous responses to challenges — and then see all their classmates’ original ideas. Peer and teacher feedback, along with access to data on process and performance, encourage students to develop and track their own capacity to critically question, discover, connect and collaborate.
The app allows teachers to group students by the type and quality of their feedback, helping them identify those who are understanding a subject as well as those who may require further personalized attention.
The free app is available through iTunes and Google Play, and works on any mobile device as well as most popular browsers.
