As the end of the school year approaches, here are some different ways you can use InnerOrbit in your classroom:

#1: Collect Data to Drive PLC Conversations with InnerOrbit Inventories

  • Did students master your grade/course's standards?

  • What do you need to revise over the summer?

  • Where should we focus our work for next school year?

Leverage the end of the school year to collect student data to drive decision making for next school year!

Dive into InnerOrbit's Inventories to collect a wide range of 3D science data to inform summer plans and decisions for next year. Learn more about InnerOrbit's Inventories here.

Also, check out our PLC Data Chat Protocol to engage with your data!

#2: Create a Post-Test of a Previous Assessment to Look for Growth

Curious how students would now perform on an assessment you gave earlier in the school year? Use InnerOrbit's quick "Copy Assessment" feature to create a post-test of a previous assessment. ⬇️

  1. Go to "Library" tab

  2. Scroll to the assessment

  3. Click the 3 dots in the top right corner of the assessment

  4. Click "Make a Copy to Modify"

  5. Enter a title for the copied assessment and click the green "Create Copy" button.

    1. You will more than likely need to refresh your page to see the new, copied assessment in your "Created by You" section.

After students take the post-test, use the Dimensions Report's "assessment filter" to compare data from the original assessment to the new post-test assessment. ⬇️

#3: Assign Science and Engineering Practices (SEP) Activities

Looking for resources for days with weird schedules that fill time yet are still meaningful?

Use InnerOrbit's SEP Practice Problems for students to keep honing their science skills.

Build multiple "activities" with these SEP practice problems*, assign them all to your students**, and have students select which activity they want to explore. Students will see all "activities" on their dashboard. ⬇️

*Pro tip: for an even more low-stakes option, build these activities using prior grade SEPs (ex: If you're a high school teacher, use Middle School SEPs!)

**You could also print these activities, too! Here's how.
