STARTING NOW, AN AMS IS NO LONGER A CLUNKY, INCONVENIENT, HARD-TO-USE, DISTRICT-MANDATED NECESSITY.
Gauge changes the face (and results) of the AMS landscape by understanding that just testing is not enough. You need testing that delivers actionable data that can then impact teaching and learning. You need assessment that improves student achievement. And it would be nice if it were a one-stop learning and assessment tool—scalable, easy to use, easily customizable, with a modern, intuitive user experience. Gauge is all of that and more.
THE MISSING LINK
There's testing. And there's instruction. But in order for things to evolve, one has to inform the other. Here's how Gauge connects assessment directly to learning:
You’d think every AMS would give teachers continual access to performance data so they could better make adjustments for more effective teaching. But not every AMS lets you maintain access to relevant data. Gauge does because we know how important it is for teachers to be able to adapt instruction and curriculum to address student needs and improve outcomes. Data is captured, stored, and accessible via easy-to-read reports—in the same place, whenever you need it.
BUILT BY INSTRUCTURE, MAKERS OF CANVAS LMS
Gauge believes in the power of the painless AMS. Easy to use. Easy to log in. Easy to import question banks. Easy to deliver secure end-of-year tests. Easy to deliver test results. Easy to access reliable data. Easy to forget why you ever used another AMS.
INTEGRATES ASSESSMENT WITH LEARNING
Simplicity is having all your data, classroom assessments, common assessments, and district-wide assessments in the same place, using the same technology. Why mess with another tool and worry about moving between systems? Your assessment tools and teaching tools can be one and the same. No learning curve. No nonsense.
What if you could deploy the same single test to, say, an entire grade level? And what if you could monitor student progress, adjusting and personalizing to improve both teaching and learning? With Gauge, you can deploy targeted assessments and—with data—target your teaching towards specific students. Gauge provides student-focused reporting, so teachers can provide guidance to help students on their path to mastery.
What happens, say, at the end of the year, when everyone is testing? Gauge scales to meet demand, even at times of peak usage, working as well for a classroom as for an entire district. And it does it all securely, keeping your institution’s data safe with secure networks and the latest security patches.
