LOVED THIS COMMENT: "I teach math so all of my worksheets are on the computer. The kids love how quick and easy it is and they get to see their grade fast! I love it! As a second-year teacher, I feel like I can be more present with my family instead of grading papers!!"

 This Week's Tuesday Tech T

"Assignment" View in My Worksheets Updated

In the past, the Assignment view in My Worksheets would show you EVERY assigned activity from the beginning of time. For many of you, that now means waiting 10 seconds or more for this long list to load. Not anymore!

The new Assignment view now limits the list to those TeacherMades that have been assigned and had submissions in the last 30 days-- essentially just displaying your active assignments. It's a shorter, more meaningful list and a way to quickly check for any new submissions from your students. Check it out and see if it saves you any time while providing a better view into your worksheets.

Did You Use A Landscape Page Yet??

Landscape Orientation for Your Activities Has Arrived! 

TeacherMade can now accept landscape-oriented documents as the background for worksheets! This opens up a huge pool of source material to TeacherMaders. So many early elementary-level and Science PDFs have been off-limits to use in TeacherMade. But no more!! Now all of your PDFs can be made interactive-- portrait or landscape. This has been among our top requested features and THANK YOU to the development team for making it happen!

Other Updates:

  • A raft of small UI Improvements and bug fixes, including a bug fix where questions with zero points had been displayed in feedback as incorrect.

  • Score points now displayed on the assignment detail screen on Google Classroom assignments. Helps teachers to understand how their scores are calculated in GC.

Big feature releases coming soon-- so stay tuned!
