Sesame makes it easy to assess student skills with visual evidence.
Students of all ages independently capture their learning in any form as it happens. Teachers give instant feedback with checklists, rubrics or comments, and tag curriculum standards to demonstrate skills.
"Not a single student has questioned their grades since I started using Sesame." - A. Hollo, College professor
“Sesame combined with Google Classroom is phenomenal!” - J. Ellis, Grade 6 teacher
“Students and parents absolutely love me for it! Sesame has revolutionized my anecdotal record keeping!” - W. Nelson, Kindergarten teacher
∙ Create “snaps” with photos, videos, audios, Google Docs, links or PDFs as evidence of learning.
∙ For younger learners, sign in on shared devices with QR codes instead of passwords. Otherwise, use Google Apps for Education or email/password sign in.
∙ Import directly from 100’s of your favourite apps to show off learning in one place.
Instant authentic feedback
∙ Assess with comments, rubric, checklist or score tools that become instantly visible to students
∙ Build trust and respect with families by inviting them to view updates in each student’s portfolio.
∙ Teachers always have control of who can see what.
Easy tracking and collaboration
∙ Tag local curriculum standards to student artefacts and assessments.
∙ Gradebook export and student portfolio makes report card writing a breeze.
∙ Showcase students by their skills rather than test scores.

Ratings and Reviews
Best tech tool I have ever used in my teaching practice
This app has given new life to my teaching practice! For the first time in 9 years of teaching, I am going out of my way to capture student work, record anecdotal observations, and administer formal assessments. Snap is pleasurable and simple to use, and the accompanying website platform adds power and complexity that make this a valuable tool. There is even a Facebook support group to ask questions and get inspired by other educators. Highly recommend!
Fast & Extremely Useful
I've used numerous programs such as ClassDojo and Padlet. With its simple Timeline feature, you get the power of both instantly. I downloaded the app during class, made a group, added names and was snapping evidence of work - shareable with parents - in about two minutes.
This is valuable to me because my classroom is somewhat hectic. 3/4 of the students are working in math, but a few are creating Arduino kits or robots or working in Geometry. Sesame Snap provides evidence of each individual's work. This helps satisfy NCAA demands - a big deal.
Snap, more than any other product, makes my fluid blended learning environment legitimate. It supports grading projects quickly and fairly.
For the Timeline feature alone, Snap is invaluable.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
