Gradeable is Throwing a Pizza Party

The Common Core of Pizza

The Common Core of Pizza by Mikaila, of course

Attention Massachusetts educators: We’re having a pizza party! (and calling it a social) It’s a little celebration we’re having to celebrate our product testers and to unveil the new Common Core tagging tool we’ve added to Gradeable. The pizza part of it is made possible by our supporters at Dominos who wanted to make sure entrepreneurs like us were powered by pizza. So with $500 worth of free pizza, the best teacher product testers, and some new Common Core functionality, we thought the best thing to do was add some wine to the mix and call it a social.

The social is happening on Thursday, December 12, at the Learn Launch Accelerator right here in Boston. The tickets are free, but there are a limited number available, so RSVP with the Eventbrite to get yours sooner than later!

Thanking our beta testers with pizza, wine, and new product functionality is the least we can do for the people who drive our product. User feedback from the teachers who use our product is what makes Gradeable what it is — a tool for teachers who love what they do and want better tools. Your likes, dislikes, and insights help us know how to make the next iteration better. Without product testers, we’d be just another startup building something in a vacuum. So we’d like to thank you for your time, patience, and feedback.

Besides pizza and gratitude, the social is also centered around the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the latest edtech platforms, products, and strategies. As always we’d like to hear your thoughts on what makes an ideal tool for teachers working to conquer CCSS.

We ask because Gradeable now boasts our own CCSS insight tool and we need to know how teachers like you like it.  Join us next Thursday to try out the new standards-based grading tool and tell us what you think.

That’s all I’ve got for now. Don’t forget: December 12 at Learn Launch. Hope to see you there!
