ESGI...Seriously. Just Do It.

It's Back To School Time!

It's my favorite time of year!  I love getting ready for a new class, and the excitement of new beginnings.  Pretty soon, it's going to get crazy...I know that.  There is no tired like the first couple of weeks of kindergarten tired.

Several years ago, my team and I found something that TRULY made the beginning (and the whole year!) easier.  It was an online assessment tool called ESGI.  Instead of the old school way of assessing...with big 3 ring binders of charts, along with flashcards for each skill, we could instead just pull kids over and assess quickly on our laptops or ipad.

Our favorite things about ESGI :

  • ESGI keeps track of everything they know and I can access that data anywhere.  If I want to work on my report cards at a coffee shop, I don't have to drag anything along other than my laptop.  I can work on report cards in the airport (and I have!).
  •  ESGI shows me who hasn't been assessed recently.  With all the sick kids I had over the past few weeks, that was a lifesaver!  
  •  ESGI gives us SO much information about our data, it helps us immeasurably in our PLC's and when making intervention groups.   
  • ESGI helps us compare this year's class to years before, which has been so valuable as we implement new programs and discuss their effectiveness.  
  • ESGI (with the push of a button) prints out individualized parent letters and easily lets us send home flashcards of the skills each student needs to work on.
  • ESGI makes it easy to create your own assessments using your school's sight words or other skills you need to assess.  
  • The ESGI peeps are the NICEST people you will ever meet.  Just last week, my team mate had an issue with a purchase order, but her subscription was up. She chatted with an ESGI rep for a couple of minutes and they extended her subscription.  They REALLY like teachers.  :)
The picture above was taken by that day's "Class Photographer".  Notice my "crown of invisibility" on my head that makes it possible for me to assess because no one can see me.  :) 

ESGI has an amazing thing happening right now.  If you sign up for a free trial, you can use ESGI for the first 60 days for FREE!
