How does Castle Learning compare to other platforms?

Quickly Create Assignments

The Castle Learning Content Team continually strives to release appropriate, quality questions for educators to use in assignments and/or tests. With Castle Learning:

  • You can create your own assignments using our database of over 170,000 questions
  • You can select “ready-to-go” assignments compiled by our educational authors
  • You can create your own, personalized databank of questions, flashcards and instructional documents (PowerPoint, MP3/MP4, URL, PDF)
  • Students can participate online from any internet connected device or offline on paper
  • You can incorporate the integration of GradeCam for paper based activities or tests

Differentiate Instruction

Each student learns at a different pace from the rest, and we understand the challenges of differentiating instruction for individual students. Use Castle Learning to:

  • Tailor assignments to an individual’s needs
  • Utilize questions aligned to Common Core and state standards
  • Analyze assessment reports to determine areas of strength and areas of improvement
  • Utilize highlighting and/or text-to-speech features for increased student accessibility
  • Mix content from multiple course areas for cross-curricular assessment

Share the Workload

Creating common assessments for curriculum departments or for school-wide deployment is easy with Castle Learning.

  • Share assignments with other teachers within the school or district
  • Create common/benchmark assessments to be published as a school or district-wide test
  • Collaborate on assessments or utilize for co-teaching environments

Grade Instantly

One of the greatest benefits of Castle Learning is the instant grading feature.

  • Eliminate hours of manual grading
  • Use data to monitor results and drive instruction
  • Students receive immediate instructional feedback with hints and reasons to reinforce instruction
  • Grade constructed response (extended response) questions online with ease

One Resource, Multiple Uses

Flexibility is an integral part of the program. Teachers have used Castle Learning for much more than homework and tests.

  • Use for classroom instruction, response to intervention (RtI), and common assessments
  • Meet Special Education (Exceptional Learner) needs
  • Flipped classroom delivery
  • Encourage parent participation in education
  • Hold class elections or student surveys

Thank goodness for Castle Learning during remote learning!! It offered the easiest way to assess students' learning! Options such as randomizing questions, offering partial credit for re-takes, or having questions read out loud to students offered some needed differentiation and encouragement to students! Enjoyed being able to look up questions based on learning standards, and the feature of sharing all materials with my co-teacher so we both had access! Wonderful resource!

I had been using this platform since my school purchased this I think more than 10 years ago. It is a great tool to give assignments and assessments. It has updated questions of all topics based from the Regents in many subjects. It has thousands of questions, ELL friendly with translations, and explanations too whenever the student got the answer right or wrong. The student can also have their own Self Study and Practice Questions. I can also use this platform to discuss with the students certain questions that most students did not do right in their exams. During this remote teaching, this platform is really great tool for the teacher as well as for the students to become actively engaged with the material. The students also have a chance to answer the second time if they get the wrong answer the first time, so they are motivated to think and try again for the best answer. I recommend this platform to any teachers on Earth who are doing either fully remote or blended or full in-person instruction. This is awesome!!!

First, I would like to commend the support staff at Castle Learning for the quick turnaround time in answering my questions, both by phone and via email. I've never had to wait more than a few hours to get my technical questions answered, so with everyone's time being extra valuable through this pandemic, I really appreciate the prompt responses. Second, I have to say that the testing program has started very smoothly through the beginning stages of my virtual classroom. I was able to meet the testing needs of all my students with all the options available to me when designing an assessment, and for that, I am very thankful. Anything that makes our workload easier right now is valuable. I will continue to work with Castle Learning, even after we start to see students come back into the classrooms!

When my school switched to remote learning in February 2020, Castle Learning saved our school year. My students were able to complete classwork assignments and assessments on Castle Learning. I was able to give questions that directly aligned to state standards and mirrored the content that I was teaching. My ENL students were able to do Castle Learning assignments in their native language with the translate function and my IEP students could still receive their accommodations of having questions read out loud and extended time. Castle Learning let me do everything I needed to as a teacher. It turned a chaotic end of the year into a success. Thank you!!!

What a lifesaver Castle Learning is for a quick assessment of my students' learning! Castle Learning offers hints when the student chooses the wrong answer and allows them to try the question again. The best part... Castle Learning quickly grades the assignment for you! With this crazy hybrid school year in the COVID times, an online assignment that students can do remotely for a quick grade is a blessing to my life.

Mary Clyde Teacher Lockport HS

The new school year was quickly approaching and with all of the new rules and regulations, we needed something that could help identify our students' weaknesses. Something fast, easy, efficient, and effective. Castle Learning was our answer. After creating a Pre-Algebra review, we were able to get immediate information on where our kids were deficient. They made it easy to review, print reports, and help communicate with the kids. Overall, it made our first week back manageable. Thank you and I look forward to working with you throughout the year.
