Prepare Students for Success on High-Stakes Tests

One of the many reasons that educators love using Penda is because it helps their students practice working on the content they’ll encounter on high-stakes tests, but Penda’s fun, game-based format eliminates the anxiety that comes with testing. Penda’s friendly sense of competition and built-in rewards for playing encourages students to practice in and out of school hours, leading to skill development, mastery and confidence.


How Penda Science Supports High-Stakes Test Prep



Always Standards-Aligned

It is more important than ever to provide high-quality science instruction to students in both in-person and distance learning situations. Penda’s 850+ new interactive science activities for grades 3–8 and high school biology are aligned to Florida NGSSS, Texas TEKS and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Scaffolded to Every Student’s Skill Level

Scaffolded to Every Student’s Skill Level

Each student essentially engages with their own personalized version of Penda thanks to the scaffolded activities that meet each student where they are, automatically reinforcing material as needed and introducing new concepts when they’re ready to move on.



Built-In Feedback and Support for Mastery

Penda puts students in control of their own learning by providing immediate feedback and support —including hints, tips, and “my progress” reports — as they progress through activities. This feedback loop means students can build mastery without direct instruction, making Penda a perfect fit in distance learning environments.

Streamlined Progress Monitoring and Intervention

Streamlined Progress Monitoring and Intervention

Penda doesn’t just make science learning easier; it streamlines progress monitoring and intervention as well. Penda auto-grades students’ assignments and feeds the scores into grade books using Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI) 1.3 Advantage protocols. Penda then provides data-rich reports that teachers can use to guide instruction, interventions and enrichment.
