Assessments powered by technology that help you identify exact areas of concerns in student learning, effectively and with no effort.
Measure deeply, leave no one behind.
Formative or assessment FOR learning provides teachers with in-depth knowledge about how their class is learning and understanding the content. However, these assessments are often very time consuming and teachers hardly have the time to mark all of these papers. Elewa’s Automatic Diagnostic Assessment removes that burden, and allows teachers to assess a class of up to 80 students in less than 10 minutes. More importantly, te assessment results are diagnostic in nature. They identify exact areas of concern in student learning.

In Depth Analysis of how our assessments stand out.
The Assessment Structure
Our assessments consist of several questions. Important to know is how we chose these questions. They have been carefully created to test for deep understanding of the topic, and they rely on our philosophy and TPGs to make the important measurable, rather than making the measurable important as is often the case.
An individual question consists out of three parts. The question itself, its possible answers, and the reason WHY the question is asked. This reason is very interesting, since it explains to teachers what concepts are being tested. When that information is combined with the assessment results, the teachers know which students need to revise which concepts and they can also make clear decisions about which concepts need to be classically revised.
The Assessment Results
The assessment results give very detailed results of class performance, and the teacher can use that information to make informed decision about what to teach the class. Extra revision could be necessary, or everybody could be on the same line and ready to move on to the next topic.
An example of assessment result coming from an actual school are the following.
In the topic Linear Equations, the question we asked to the students was to calculate the result of the equation 4z + 4 = 16. As we can see, 37 students got it right and about 9 got it wrong. The teacher can use that information to make informed decisions, and could for example decide to do some extra revision work with those 9 students.
In the second question, 5 fruits + 5 = 20, the equation to solve is exactly the same. We now only changed the symbol ‘x’, with the symbol ‘fruits’. The reason that is shown as part of this question is the following: we ask this question to “try to catch students that do not understand the use of unknown terms such as x, y and z, by replacing it with a word.” This reason shows us the diagnostic part of our assessments. The assessments have been made in such a way that they cover all the concepts that are being taught in the topic.
What we see in the results, is that a lot more students got it wrong. Now, only 27 got it right. What the teacher is able to learn from this, is that a lot of students do not fully understand the concept of an unknown term. The teacher can use that information to revise in a targeted way, revising only the concepts that are not fully understood.
It’s like a mobile phone. Once you start using it, you can’t go on without.

Deep insights powered by Artificial Intelligence
Technology serves two crucial purposes that enable us to bring you Diagnostic Assessment.
Lightning Fast Marking
Using our technology, marking of a class of even up to a hundred students becomes a breeze and is done within minutes. The marking process comes at extremely low cost, since we only need one computer (with which our ETAs are equipped) to perform it. The students perform the assessment on physical paper, we take care of the rest.
Our technology, powered by AI, is able to identify exact areas of concern in student learning. It can track students through the whole curriculum, and is able to give intelligent feedback to the teachers, parents and students of where the issue lies.
Bringing it all together
The Elewa Network
Every school is unique. They have a unique mission, unique values and a unique culture. At the same time, technology and educational content offer an amazing opportunity for a lot of schools to come together and to enter the future of education. A problem arises, when a single new method or technology is being pushed as the solution for all schools. As every school is unique, we need ways to uniquely integrate changes into all schools.
The Elewa Teaching Assistent (ETA), Elewa Teaching Facilitator (ETF) and Elewa Network are the help we developed to achieve just that. Read more and learn who and what they are.
