Snapwiz’s ambitious goal is to transform how world-class instructors teach by allowing them to focus on improving their effectiveness without sacrificing individualized instruction. They partner with some of the world’s premier publishing companies like John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Their adaptive learning tools allow educators and administrators to leverage individual (or class-wide) performance metrics, and use these insights to craft personalized learning pathways that improve curriculums and student learning outcomes. Snapwiz empowers educators with insights on improving their teaching approach so they can adapt to each student’s unique learning styles.
- With intuitive assessment tools evaluation is simple: view how students interact with content from beginning to end, and provide them with the right feedback at the right time.
- Educators can also track student learning behaviors with real-time class performance data—testing what works and targeting crucial problem areas.
- Individual student performance (covering every assignment), and detailed engagement reports, are now at any educator’s finger tips.
