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

I was just introduced to Castle Learning this summer in a PD course. I love the simplicity of creating new assignments and flashcards. I can't wait to customize my own set of flashcards for my students to use when we start school back up in the fall!

Castle Learning was very useful for my Math 3A students who had failed the Math A exam at least twice before trying it again this January (2002). My students used Castle Learning for at least 1 hour on 4 different days before the January Math A exam. Our results were dramatically higher than we expected. We had a 62% pass rate from these students, all of whom had been listed as failures last year! I am anxiously awaiting June when my Math 3 Regents will use it to review for the Math III exam. It is definitely one of the best programs that my school district has purchased.

In addition to review, I use Castle Learning as a motivational tool in my classroom. Castle Learning has definitely improved my students’ test scores and given them more exposure to authentic exam questions.

It was time to expand my bag of tricks, so I tried the Castle Learning web site with my geometry classes. The results were so significant that my physics and advanced physics classes are using it this semester…My geometry classes improved their scores about 20%.

I want to say thank you for all your hard work and dedication in the creation, implementation and maintenance of this wonderful technology-based tool. I work in an Alternative Education program, and my students like the delivery method and the ways in which I incorporate lessons into my own classroom. Thank you for your extremely prompt response to my concerns.

I am a Special Education Teacher currently teaching 9-10th grade Global Studies. I just wanted to say that I really have enjoyed using Castle Learning in the classroom this year. I started using Castle Learning last year and have made it a part of my curriculum this year. Each student in my classes is responsible for answering a specific number of questions on the units being studied during the semester. I like that the students are getting access to Regents questions and vocabulary. I also use Castle Learning to create multiple choice questions for Chapter and Unit Tests. The students seem to respond well to the questions and get a flavor of what they will be seeing when they challenge the exam.
