Over a span of a few years, most of our clients were required to create digital lesson plans in the proprietary Learning Village platform in order to submit in Florida. This flowchart illustrates the fairly complicated digital workflow required to create new digital lesson plans from mostly print material, including authoring in Word templates, HTML, and XML, and embedding images, icons, and links.
We have been curating educational virtual and augmented reality content since 2015. Our storyboarding tasks have included speccing new panoramic images; searching Google Street View for existing images; selecting points of interest on each panorama; writing descriptions of each panorama and associated points of interest; and writing leveled assessment questions.
When it comes to authoring algorithmic items, our team knows when it’s appropriate to iterate a variable and how to meticulously define related variables in an item across the stem, answer choices, and feedback to prevent the item from generating a set of impossible or otherwise undesirable values. This is the student view of an algorithmic math item we authored in ExamView.
We have written tech-enhanced ELA and math items in a variety of platforms for both SBAC and PARCC. Because high-stakes items are strictly confidential, this image is a published sample item from Grade 7 Math.
Our client asked us to do a cold solve of all of their online math curriculum materials to ensure mathematical accuracy of answers, explanations, and stepped-out examples. This is one of the annotated answer keys that we reviewed and updated as necessary.
ePP reviewed all of this client’s teacher-created materials to ensure accuracy, clarity, consistency in style and approach, and solid adherence to the target CCSS. This is a sample of one teacher’s lesson work that we reviewed and updated as necessary.
As part of our work developing Grades K–1 interactive math instruction, we created digital versions of print practice items. This is the storyboard for one practice item, including all item text; sample answers or scoring formulas; alt text; audio scripts; metadata, including target standards, DOK, and difficulty level; art and interactivity specs and scrap; and file names and art codes.
ePP was asked to spec, storyboard, and produce a proof-of-concept short, engaging, topic-specific live action video for high school ELA. It became apparent that full live action was not going to be possible within the client’s budget for the entire project, so we created this video that has a live action feel on an animation budget.
We partnered with this client to reimagine a Grades K–1 print math program for online use, which was particularly challenging given the limited dexterity and digital fluency of that age group. This is the storyboard for one lesson, which contains all instruction; audio scripts; metadata including target standards, DOK, and difficulty level; art and interactivity specs and scrap; and file names and art codes.
We have experience blueprinting and writing practice tests for the AP Exam and ACT Test for ELA, reading, writing, math, science, literature & composition, and history. This includes sourcing and writing new passages and data; speccing and creating images; and writing student- and teacher-facing rationales and explanations.
