Updated: Apr 1, 2020
Dear Educators, Many schools across the nation are closing as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Gallopade is taking the following steps to ensure the best possible level of service to our customers.

Students Without Accounts If you have students who need account access, please follow steps 2-3 here. Tips for Online Learning You may want to use this opportunity to cover new material or have students go back and refresh themselves on previous content and assessment items that need review! Here are some recommendations to maximize student learning during this time:
Student eBook: If your district purchased print Student Books, students have the eBook in their online libraries. The eBook is identical to the print version. Students can access this eBook from home and complete assignments on paper to turn in when the return to school. They can submit assignments to you via email, your LMS, or Google Classroom. If your district is a Google Classroom customer or has an LMS, you can have your students enter their answers in a Google Doc and turn it in digitally now!
Clickbook (Georgia only): Teachers working remotely can create assignments for their classes. Students can complete these lessons from within their Assignments screen. We recommend that Clickbook chapters are assigned in "Training" mode so that students can read and complete the activities until they achieve a mastery level of 100%. Be sure to have your students click the Submit to Teacher button at the end of each activity section. Step-by-step tutorials can be found in the Teacher's Guide. ExperTrack Assessment System: Teachers working remotely can assign and re-assign Checkpoints. As a reminder, use “Evaluation” mode to limit the assessment to a single submission. Use “Practice” mode to allow repeat attempts. (You can review grades and the number of student attempts within your Statistics page) Students should review the corresponding material in their Student eBook in between test attempts. Be sure to have your students click the Submit to Teacher button once they have completed their test. Step-by-step tutorials can be found in the Teacher's Guide. Please follow Gallopade Curriculum on Facebook for continuous updates. Everyone at Gallopade appreciates your continued partnership during this time. We remain committed to supporting you during this challenging time.
