I Am Naiku: Fr. Augustine Tran

Fr. Augustine Tran, Theology Teacher at Blessed Trinity High School in Roswell GA started teaching in 2004. He enjoys working with high school students, sharing his knowledge, and seeing “light-bulb”s of off in their heads as they start to understand material. Fr. Tran uses Naiku exclusively for his assessments which contain multiple-choice, essay, short-answer constructed response, and matching items. His assessment practice has changed since he started using Naiku. “I think I give more short daily assessments to make sure the students are staying on top of the material instead of waiting until the test to cram. It only takes a few minutes to make a short assessment in Naiku and have it read for students to take,” said Fr. Tran. Read More
