Sesame makes it easy to assess student skills with visual evidence. Students of all ages independently capture their learning in any form as it happens. Teachers give instant feedback with checklists, rubrics or comments, and tag curriculum standards to demonstrate skills. Create snaps with photos, videos, audios, Google Docs, links or PDFs as evidence of learning. - For younger learners, sign in on shared devices with QR codes instead of passwords. Otherwise, use Google Apps for Education or email/password sign in. - Import directly from 100's of your favorite apps to show off learning in one place. - Assess with comments, rubrics, checklist or score tools that become instantly visible to students - Build trust and respect with families by inviting them to view updates in each student’s portfolio. - Teachers always have control of who can see what. -Tag local curriculum standards to student artifacts and assessments. - Gradebook export and student portfolio options - Showcase students by their skills rather than test scores.
