Teacher-assigned tutoring comes to Pear Deck Learning

This month, we're excited to introduce teacher-assigned tutoring within Pear Deck Learning, thanks to the integration of Pear Deck Tutor with Pear Assessment and GoGuardian Teacher.

Pear Deck Tutor and Pear Assessment 

With the Pear Deck Tutor and Pear Assessment integration, teachers can utilize data from Pear Assessment to tailor tutoring sessions that specifically target students' areas needing improvement, while also allowing them to gauge the effectiveness of these sessions on students' progress.
