XLR8 Features

The flagship product of Ed Tech Soft is XLR8, its online Formative Assessment Platform. This provides educators with the tools to design formative assessments, administer online/offline testing via plain paper, virtual bubble sheets, scanner protocols, or clicker technologies, and then receive performance data in a variety of insightful reports.

Our new interface is visually appealing and highly intuitive with our five-step test creation process that empowers teachers and administrators to create assessments – a short quiz, end-of-chapter test, or quarterly benchmark – in only minutes.

XLR8 Reports

You know something is wrong with a vendor’s assessment reports when your teachers cannot readily acquire, interpret, and use the data. You know something is dramatically wrong if your most experienced teachers also struggle!

XLR8 reports – with their use of numerical and graphical representations, plus placement, ordering, and proportion of key informational elements – make for prompt and accurate response to data. XLR8’s reports just make sense. We are particularly gratified to hear that our reports may actually accelerate the user’s acquisition, interpretation, and resulting response to data.

New features :
  • View Adjustment: Properly expand and display more pertinent data on screen.
  • Instant Report Filtering: With a click, the report’s filters can adjust to display information from a specific group or category.
  • Detailed performance on Standards Report: Allows review of a class’s performance on a given standard – across multiple assessments.
