Simplify DRDP Assessment

Learning Genie employs its uniquely designed user interface to enable teachers to tag multiple children with multiple measures in just a few taps. 

Teachers can zoom into each domain and have an overview of progress of observations and assessments, and they can quickly view what has been observed and unobserved during a specific rating period. Learning Genie tools also enable teachers to collaborate and reflect on measures and ratings more effectively, with an observation and date auto-generated filter for each child. This is designed to enable teachers to do ratings “Bubbles” on DRDP-Online with great ease!
