Kids Discover today announced that its interactive digital library, Kids Discover Online, now includes custom assessment capabilities. Kids Discover Online enables educators to mix and match material from science and social studies to facilitate students’ exploration of big ideas through cross-curricular learning. The newly added Assessments tool gives educators control to create, distribute, and assess custom quizzes, tests, and homework assignments directly within the platform.
The Assessments feature includes more than 5,000 pre-built questions covering more than 1,200 science and social studies topics. Question types vary to include discussion prompts, short answer, multiple choice, and true/false. Educators can save content to their Classroom and have questions specifically corresponding to a given article automatically populate the question bank. Using the question bank as a starting point, educators can create custom assessments ranging from short multiple-choice quizzes to longer mixed-question assessments.
