In the fast-paced and unpredictable school day, even the most effective teachers struggle to provide the ideal amount of timely descriptive feedback to their students. At the same time, parents desire to be more regularly involved in their child’s progress and learning. iCanProgress has been specifically designed to strengthen communication between teachers, students and parents regarding student progress. iCanProgress uses iPads to their full potential in the classroom, driving authentic assessment by making student learning visible. Through push notifications on a phone or tablet, parents can receive instant descriptive feedback from teachers through the sharing of media and pedagogical documentation. They can receive a video clip of their child demonstrating math problem-solving skills. They can witness the creative writing process from brainstorming to polished work. Students find new, personalized venues into learning, and become more critical and self-reflective thinkers. iCanProgress assists teachers with pedagogical documentation, as well as creating customizable checklists and rubrics. By the end of each Reporting Period, teachers will be able to cross-reference all evidence of student learning, making the Report Card writing process more efficient and authentic.

Our Vision In the 21st century classroom, it is critical that students become active participants in their own learning through real-life contexts. Authentic Assessment means making student learning “visible” within these contexts. Our vision is to redefine the concept of effective Pedagogical Documentation through the use of technology. Students, parents, teachers and administrators will be empowered with a shared vision of achieving academic success. Students will find new, innovative and personalized venues into learning, and become more critical and self-reflective thinkers. Our Mission We are committed to transforming assessment practices in Ontario Elementary Education (K-8). We are focused on providing educators with an intuitive platform that combines Learning Goals, Success Criteria and Descriptive Feedback with parental engagement so that students can effectively apply the knowledge and mindset they have acquired to achieve their full potential.
