EDUCATION WEEK: LightSail named among top ed tech tools for formative assessment

education_week_logoEducation Week examines the ways ed tech tools enhance formative assessment in a recent article, “Technology Fed Growth in Formative Assessment.” The piece lists the characteristics of effective assessments in today’s top ed tech tools, including their ability to be instantaneous, embedded, and adaptive, and lists LightSail as a leader in the field.

The article states, “Formative assessment…acts as the gatekeeper, checking for understanding before the student moves on and may determine where the student moves to next within the digital curriculum. A tool like the online reading curriculum LightSail provides each student with individualized libraries and reading lists that change based on student-assessment results.”
