TESS (The Engagement Student Solution), a TIL product, was developed to improve student learning outcomes. TESS is a learning management system that provides live educational assessment data through a unique student response system. It focuses on helping students increase performance and teachers increase classroom engagement.

THE KEY TO STUDENT PERFORMANCE IS DATA

Data is broken down in a variety of ways to allow teachers to use it to improve their teaching strategy and to better evaluate and educate students. Responses from students can be listed by class period.

ONE CLICK

The One-Click service enables the TESS device to trigger a function that is executed as a live poll on screen or on a private teacher device. One-Click on the device will enable students to easily respond to teacher assessment questions.

WHY DOES

YOUR SCHOOL

NEED TESS?

 

 
314 Students were surveyed on how engaged they are at school in their classes. 69% of all students are moderately engaged or worse.
 
"Engagement with learning is essential, because it is engagement that leads to sustained interaction and practice. Coaching, instruction, and feedback become critical to ensure that students develop good habits and increase their proficiency. Increased competence typically leads to motivation to engage further, generating a cycle of engagement and developing competence that supports improved student achievement." - Judith Irvin
