How well do your students listen? Can they distill main idea or make inferences?
We are excited to announce that we’ve added multiple choice listening assessments to Listenwise Premium. Teachers now have the ability to assess and track 8 different student listening skills! There is no doubt, listening skills have a major impact on children’s career and college readiness, and we are excited to provide new ways to help teachers support student success.
We have seen that there are very few curriculum products that address listening skills in middle and high school, which is what inspired us to launch some huge changes to our Premium package today.
How did we create these unique assessments? We designed our multiple choice assessments across 8 different aspects of listening comprehension. This past Fall and Winter we beta tested the auto-scored quizzes with teachers and students across the U.S and received amazing feedback:
“I was surprised to discover through Listenwise that my students needed more help with identifying evidence and understanding inferences. The data from my student assessments was revealing and I’m reworking my approach to instruction in these areas. With Listenwise, listening has now become a class routine, because I see how much impact it has on my students.”
