Our New Features and Upgrade

We've been really busy adding new upgrades and features to EducationCity as part of our Winter Release 2014. We're really excited to showcase them at Bett. Among our new features and upgrades are:

  • MySuccess – a new feature that allows students to view their own Activity and Test scores.
  • 'Add to MyCity' From – Administrators and Teachers will be able to add any piece of content to a MyCity from other features on the resource including Search, the Curriculum Map and SuccessTracker, which will save valuable time when lesson planning.
  • Curriculum Map Updates – reference numbers (if this is relevant to your curriculum) can now be found when searching in the Curriculum Map so you can easily match to particular objectives within your curriculum.
