Questions that were asked along the way....

  • Below are some questions that came up along the way while we were learning how to use Castle Learning.  While technology is constantly evolving, some of the questions may prompt you to explore the program further!

    Question 1: Is Spanish translation available in Castle Learning? 

    It seems that you have two options.  You can activate the Google Translate feature when creating an assignment, then the students can have the option to have the questions translated in multiple languages.  

    Some questions are available in both Spanish and English.  (I believe that is what you were looking at)  Students must activate the option in their individual profiles.  Then, both English and Spanish translation will be available to them.

    Of course, I will have to go in and test it out but I just wanted you to have the information.  Thank you for asking the question; that is how I learn!

     

    Question 2: How do I view the assignments from the perspective of the student?

     

     

    Question 3: How to students access the Self Study component that includes Regents preparation materials?

    Please refer to the attached guide:

    Castle Learning Regents Review Guide

      

    Question 4: Can students access Castle Learning on their phones?

    Yes, students can access Castle Learning by downloading the Clever app on their phones. The platform is user-friendly!

     

    Question 5: How can we search for questions by level?

    Under the Filter By option, make sure that the Levels and Topics boxes are both checked. (See Below).

    Remember you can also use Keyword Search and use the drop-down menus to filter your results.

     

     

     

    Question 6: Can I assign a Regents Exam? 

    Yes! After selecting the Assignments tab, choose "Create from Public Assignments", NOT "Create New Assignment".

    Then select the following options by expanding the plus signs: Mathematics > Math > Castle Assignments > New York
