    Hi everyone,

    We updated EdReady tonight. This update includes a lot of visual changes that are likely to require you and your students to refresh your browsers and/or clear your caches. Refer to this site if you need help with that process: http://refreshyourcache.com

    These details are also available in the release notes.

    The following bug fixes, new features, and improvements are part of this EdReady release:

    • The most significant changes associated with this release pertain to a number of major labeling changes, along with some re-organization within the admin dashboard. Based on extensive feedback from our community, we decided that the use of the word “assessment” to refer to a customized scope of expectations was too confusing. For students and teachers, we have replaced that word with “study path”. For admins, you will see “scope” or “scope of expectations”. We think these changes help to clarify the way EdReady is structured and should reduce confusion overall.
    • The goal cards on the student dashboard were updated to improve their look and make them more responsive. We also eliminated some unnecessary steps in joining a goal.
    • We changed “I Don’t Know” to “Skip” for all tests, based on teacher and student feedback. The function is the same. We also removed the button styling for the “Save and close” option.
    • The number of customizable features and functions has continued to expand since EdReady launched over three years ago, so we were overdue for some clean-up and re-organization of the administrative dashboard. We believe these changes should make it easier to navigate the dashboard and manage your EdReady site.
    • There is a new option to customize the function of the “More Info” (formerly “FAQ”) link and the Help button. You also now have the option to turn these elements off entirely.
    • After many rounds of testing, and with extra help from our Montana colleagues, we think we have finally resolved some persistent problems with the matching questions in the content. We are now testing those problems within the EdReady testing environment and will restore those questions ASAP if we do not encounter any issues.
    • We made some additional improvements to the new study path details charts and tables.
    • We fixed a number of bugs throughout, including issues with the “Actions” column, stuck progress bars, messed up session logs, stuck tests, and more.

    In addition to all of these changes, there are a number of significant new features in the works which are slated to be released in the next few weeks. We are expecting to make a number of updates between now and the end of the year, so please keep your eyes out for notifications, informational webinars, and related news. And of course, please contact us if you have any questions or comments!

    Thank you.
