Students can copy their best assessments and other resources into a portfolio to showcase their work. Portfolio assets can include multimedia files such as audio and video. Students enjoy this feature because it makes them feel accomplished and recognized.

Competency-based learning

Make sure class content is compliant with standards by adding competencies to it. Create your own or use the preloaded US Common Core and Next Generation Science standards. Created competencies can be stored in the resources library and reused for other classes. Align content and assessments with competencies, then see a coverage analysis of how well your class covers them.

Add actions that should be performed when students drop below a threshold for certain competencies for a specified number of days. You can use this feature to automatically send them recommendations on how to improve in that area, or to alert teachers so they can help the student.

55% of surveyed schools say that NEO has improved the way they assess students.


Technical support is always easy to get, and grading student assessments has been much more efficient for teachers.
