  • The Digital Curriculum Platform, an important addition to the powerful suite of tools within Galileo and provided to all clients at no additional cost
  • A new recorded webinar illustrating the numerous assessment types, tools, and reports that comprise the Galileo comprehensive assessment system

New: Intuitive Galileo Test Builder
Coming Soon: TE Item Builder Component
You can now preview and begin using the powerful new Galileo Test Builder interface. The easy-to-use assessment creation tool is an intuitive, point-and-click interface for creating common formative assessments at the school and class level using items including technology enhanced items that articulate directly to selected objectives. Designed for teachers and optimized for desktops, laptops, and tablets, Test Builder offers the following capabilities:   
  • Search item banks by standard or item family
  • Refine searches by Depth of Knowledge (DOK) and item type
  • Quickly add, reorder, and/or delete items
  • View a summary of your current test items at the same time as your current search results
  • Easily access online student and teacher previews of your test
  • Once your test is published, access quick links to schedule the test and print if needed for offline student test booklets
TE Item Builder Component:  The capability for teachers to create technology-enhanced items within Test Builder is currently under development and scheduled for release in spring 2017.
