QuizStar Instructor Login

QuizStar Instructor Login
Beginning November 1, 2009 we will once again be able to offer QuizStar free of charge. QuizStar was originally created as a grant-funded, free online tool. When the project funding ended, we moved to a subscription-based service in order to continue to support and update the project. Recently, we made the decision to move away from a paid subscription service and instead use online advertising to allow all educators to enjoy unlimited free access to QuizStar, just like the other tools. Ads will be placed on Instructor pages and login pages, but not on the quizzes that students take. Send us feedback. If you currently have a subscription, you can let it run out and it will automatically be free as you continue to use it, or you can request a refund if your subscription has six or more months remaining. QuizStar is a Web-based quiz maker that enables you to create, administer and automatically grade your quizzes online!

Indigo Dyslexia Centre Norwich and Ipswich: Writing for Dyslexics Writing for Dyslexics For dyslexics, reading, understanding and learning from printed information can be a challenge. But information can be written in a way to help rather than hinder. Whoever you are dealing with - pupils, staff, or the general public - remember that up to 10% of your audience could be dyslexic. If you want to get your message across, we have a few recommendations: Presentation

Criterion- and Standards- Referenced Tests Criterion-referenced tests (CRTs) are intended to measure how well a person has learned a specific body of knowledge and skills. Multiple-choice tests most people take to get a driver's license and on-the-road driving tests are both examples of criterion-referenced tests. As on most other CRTs, it is possible for everyone to earn a passing score if they know about driving rules and if they drive reasonably well. In contrast, norm-referenced tests (NRTs) are made to compare test takers to each other. In education, CRTs usually are made to determine whether a student has learned the material taught in a specific grade or course. On a standardized CRT (one taken by students in many schools), the passing or "cut-off" score is usually set by a committee of experts, while in a classroom the teacher sets the passing score. Some CRT's, such as many state tests, are not based on a specific curriculum, but on a more general idea of what students might be taught. Standards-Referenced Tests

Science WorldWide Telescope Microsoft Research Songsmith: Teachers' Corner Songsmith is a great way to encourage students to be creative: many music teachers know that sometimes just helping kids “find their spark” is the hardest part of stimulating musical creativity. Furthermore, Songsmith can help you teach musical concepts that are sometimes difficult, particularly how chords are used in pop music and how melodies and chords fit together. Using tools like Songsmith to explore these concepts can help connect what students are learning in music class to the music they listen to at home, whether they’re in third grade or in high school. Even outside of music classes, Songsmith is a great way to encourage creative approaches to learning. Thanks to Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Network, yes indeed, Songsmith is free to teachers to use in their classrooms. Then just log in to, click on “resources” (in the menu at the top of the page), then “free tools”, then “Songsmith”. Don’t take our word for it, hear it from a fellow teacher!
