September 25 article from the edtechtimes.com:
We’ve been fans of Metryx Mobile Tracker, a web application that allows teachers to conduct thorough formative assessment on-the-go via smartphone, tablet or CPU, for a while now, and Metryx CEO Shawn Rubin was kind enough to chat with us about the state of the ed-tech industry a few months back.
We also published a Startup Snapshot of Metryx here.
Today we received this email from Mr. Rubin announcing the latest from Metryx, and we thought we’d give it to you straight from the horses mouth:
Wow!We are overwhelmed by the amount and quality of feedback we received for the Metryx beta this summer and fall. Your ideas and requests caused us to rethink our release date as we took your suggestions and used them to drive our app rebuild this fall.
We apologize that the school year has started without our powerful, mobile formative assessment tool in your hands, but just know that our quest is to make the personalization of education easier for all, and we have left no stone unturned when designing and building this new version!
As educators, we understand that we are building a game-changing software for over-worked, under-appreciated, and highly-knowledgeable teachers, and we want to make sure that we do it right!
When you see you it you will know that it was worth the wait!
You’ll swoon! You’ll scream! “Finally a tool that allows me to…
* Flexibly assess by individual student or by individual skill”
* See data in real-time allowing me to group students on the fly”
* Track common core skills alongside behavior & rubric scores”
* Take in data using online or offline asssessments”
Right now we are looking at a November release for the new version of Metryx
