Personalize Student Learning
With Naiku, learning is personal. When a student takes an assessment on Naiku, it isn’t just a bubble sheet replacement – students actually engage with Naiku, internalizing the concepts being taught. Through feedback, the testing experience becomes a learning experience.
Students can rate the confidence in their answers while taking the test and provide justification for their answer selections.
Students can reflect on their answer choices immediately upon receiving their scores and teacher answer rationale while the information is still fresh, which increases student ownership of their own knowledge.
Naiku facilitates continuous, specific, and timely teacher-student feedback. Goal setting, automatic answer rationale, and journaling coupled with standards aligned performance reports enhance teacher-student feedback.
Accelerate Learning with Formative Assessment
Stop waiting days or weeks to know if your students know (or don’t know) critical concepts! Use Naiku to identify student knowledge gaps and address them immediately with informed instruction.
Student assignments are scored automatically for a variety of item types, including true-false, multiple choice, matching, and short answer.
Reports are immediately available illustrating class and student performance by standard. There is no need to export data to a spreadsheet and manipulate for analysis to understand how your students performed.
Instant Student Response
Finally, with Quick Question, teachers can immediately check for understanding anytime they need to with real-time polling – no item preparation is required!
Collaborate on Common Assessment
Don’t live on an island – with Naiku, teacher collaboration is fundamental. Naiku makes it easy to work in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and create, share and discuss assessments and outcomes in a secure, professional environment.
Teachers can easily share items and assessments with other teachers on their team, at their school, district, or with the Naiku world.
Likewise, teachers can easily use items and assessments from other teachers by simply searching with appropriate key words.
Teachers and administrative staff can readily share and review results of common assessments to aid successful PLCs.
Campus and district administrators can view and compare aggregate student performance by standard across classrooms in any subject area – providing the insight needed on a regular basis to see how students are performing and to increase collaboration and teacher effectiveness.
Student Information Systems (SIS)
Naiku integrates with almost every SIS, including but not limited to Infinite Campus, Skyward, PowerSchools, and TSIS. It usually takes about 2 days to connect the systems.
Naiku works best when students have access to devices such as smart phones, Chromebooks, netbooks, tablets or laptops. Naiku works on Android, iOS, Windows, MacOS, ChromeOS and with browsers like IE, Safari, Firefox and Chrome.
Naiku was developed to be a low-bandwidth application. If you can support a classroom full of netbooks or tablets, you can use Naiku.
Naiku works with many paper scanners. Please contact us for details.
