New Features in Your Dashboard

Now in your Stride
Teacher Control Panel!
Welcome to the new school year and exciting upgrades in your Stride account!  

You spoke, and we listened.  Thanks to thoughtful input from our customer-educators like you, we've delivered a fresh design to our Stride Teacher Dashboards. New pie graphs and widgetsallow you to customize data to your needs.  Here's a glimpse of the widgets you'll see today when you login

How are students progressing on assessment?  Don't let the testing windows pass you by. Day by day, know how many students are still working toward completion, so you can allot classroom time for PMA.
