We are celebrating 5 years of Edulastic! A fifth birthday is a big milestone, so we decided to celebrate in a big way. We had a fun party in Philadelphia, and we launched the Edulastic Extravaganza Contest.
The Edulastic Extravaganza contest is our way in our 5th year to say thank you to our amazing Edulastic community. The incredible educators who continue to support and share Edulastic greatly contribute to our success. While Edulastic has evolved in many ways, the core is still the same: we aim to help teachers evaluate and support student progress.
With a robust platform and a variety of options for finding and developing assessment, Edulastic is a trusted tool in schools across the country and world. Edulastic launched at ISTE in 2014, and our community of users has grown to over 9 million since then!
As a thank you and as a celebration, the winner of the Edulastic Extravaganza contest receives an ENTIRE YEAR of Edulastic Enterprise for their whole school. In order to win, educators answered the question: how will Edulastic Enterprise transform your school? We got some great entries, and we want to say thank you to everyone who submitted either a video or a blog post. Now, we are thrilled to announce the winner – Cheri Manners from Hickory High School in Pennsylvania!
Cheri is a high school Spanish teacher who started using Edulastic in August of this year. She “immediately fell in love!” With 24 years of teaching behind her, Cheri is an experienced teacher. She was excited to find an online assessment tool that helped her quickly measure student growth and that worked well in multiple languages – English and Spanish. Cheri also told us that her students love taking their tests and quizzes on Edulastic because they have the ability to return to previous questions, and they immediately get their results at the end!
We love the funny and original video that Cheri and her class put together. They demonstrate the positive impact that Edulastic has on their learning, and they even came up with a catchy tag-line: “Learning is fantastic with Edulastic!” Congratulations to Hickory High School!
