PAS Auto-assigns Activities to Your Scope and Sequence

Penda’s scaffolded, differentiated science activities for grades 3–8 and high school biology are hand-crafted to Florida SASS, Texas TEKS and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Our one-of-a-kind Pacing Assistance Service (PAS) auto-assigns activities to students weekly based on their skill level and your district’s scope and sequence. Penda can even auto-grade the assignments and feed the scores into your Schoology or Canvas gradebook using Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) 1.3 Advantage protocols.
