Cool Tool | Common Core Quest

CREDIT opened Common Core QuestOpenEd, the world’s largest catalog of educational videos, games and assessments recently launched Common Core Quest – a free app available on the App Store and Google Play that can test and track the mastery of Common Core Standards. With millions of U.S. teachers implementing these rigorous standards in their classrooms, they are faced with the challenge of tracking learning gaps and personalizing learning to ensure all students are on track to meet and exceed the goals. With this fun, ad-free app, students have the ability to take quizzes and practice problems that demonstrate full understanding of the required math and English/language arts standards. When learning gaps are identified, Common Core Quest immediately links the learner to resources from OpenEd’s library of millions of videos and games for practice, allowing students to understand and complete difficult homework, or practice for an upcoming quiz or test. As student’s progress, they are rewarded with ribbons for each Common Core standard met, and badges for entire strands. In addition, the quizzes in Common Core Quest feature Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) style questions, helping students prepare for the rigors of the high-stakes assessments they will face in the spring.
