Snapshot

To set up Snapshot, just click on "Snapshot" icon from within your account and select the class you are working with. Pick the grade level and then choose the content area of the common core standard you want to address ( Math or ELA ).

Each student will get a slightly different set of questions. Snapshot also allows you to get real time data from your students when they finish working on their quiz. You will be able to see how many students completed it, the different standards addressed, and the number of questions answered.
