Monthly Mantra for a Successful School Year

As exciting as the new school year is for students, we know that it can come with challenges for educators.

Say it with us and repeat it whenever you need a little boost as you move through the upcoming school days:

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

And some fun to kickstart your back to school season!

Q: What is the “Eduphoria Educator Experience”?

A: Great question! The Eduphoria Educator Experience (“3E”) is a comprehensive curriculum built to support educators with the integration of Eduphoria systems into local district practice. It also supports campus and classroom leaders with the integration of Eduphoria applications into their own practice and pedagogy.

Strive Design Updates Overview

We’ve been busy this summer updating Strive to make room for some amazing new features for Appraisers! Strive now offers a landing page to help answer the question, “what do I need to do right now?” Whether you need to sign an evaluation, approve a goal or start a walkthrough, the overview provides visuals that give insights into the status and potential need to complete steps in your evaluation processes.

In addition, we have a new Activity Tracker Table view that will display the status of the Evaluation Process for your entire school and allow appraisers to filter the information to find the specific details of any appraisee type, task or staff member.

New Student Login URL

We are dedicated to optimizing the student testing experience and have released a redesigned Student Testing Portal. In addition to taking an online test, students can now verify their test scores and score summary.

As a result, student login URLs have changed! If you haven’t already, please make sure you update your district’s Eduphoria Student Login URL links. For a limited time, old URLs will still redirect students to online testing to give you time to update your links.

Be sure to check out our News & Announcements article for steps to find the link and replace your old student login URLs.
