ALIGN – Penda is the first-ever to align your scope and sequence automatically to standards-based activities, with no effort needed from district staff, administrators, or teachers.

_

ASSIGN – The scaffolded standards-based activities are even assigned to students weekly on behalf of the teacher, freeing the teacher of yet one more thing to complete. Students become addicted to Penda since it’s built on a gaming platform, which capitalizes on game mechanics while focusing on the math and science content at hand.

_

ASSESS – Throughout the student experience, Penda assesses student progress as they complete the activities while students receive immediate feedback – no more waiting days or weeks. While the alignment of activities and automatic assignment may seem like powerful benefits of Penda, the sheer “wow” factor comes with the robust reporting features.

_

ACHIEVE – Imagine being a math or science teacher who receives an email containing a class mastery report at the start of every school week to equip you with powerful data that can then be used to help shape classroom instruction all the way down to the student level for each standards. Penda Learning creates wins for students, teachers, academic coaches, and administrators with as little as 30 minutes of student use per week.That’s the power of Penda.
