Incorporating Online Testing into Your Classroom

by Aimee Benson

Incorporating a new technology tool into the classroom can be a daunting prospect–but it doesn’t have to be. One thing teachers don’t have in abundance is time. Online testing tools offer a time saving solution: they speed up the grading process, eliminate ambiguity, and give the educator instant feedback that can then be used to create a data-driven instruction plan. 

American Book Company recommends a simple four-step implementation process to help teachers put our newest online testing tools to use. Our all-inclusive resources include CourseWave Online Testing with your ABC print and digital purchases where available. The CourseWave testing maps directly to the ABC print curriculum you know and love. Using the books and testing tools together allows educators to customize the implementation to their students’ unique needs, both in the classroom and remotely.

Step One: Pretest

With content covering 100% of state standards, your pretests are your first step in viewing trends in student scores. Once your students have submitted their pretests, you can instantly see how they fared against each standard. 

Step Two: Plan

Using the Chart of Standards in your Teacher Guide and the Standards Report in your CourseWave dashboard, plan your instruction to address the learning objectives identified during pretesting.

Step Three: Check in

Using the included chapter tests, unit tests, and score report, you’ll be able to continuously measure your students’ progress toward their individual and your classroom goals.

Step Four: Posttest

A final posttest will show the progress your students made against each standard over the course of the year, as well as any signs of learning loss or understanding gaps.
