Canvas and Edcite share a philosophy: we want to give educators powerful tools to create better futures for their students. At Edcite, we have seen a lot of growth in K12 for Canvas because, as schools and districts are moving toward more online curriculum, they now need the LMS capabilities that were once only used by colleges and universities. Canvas is a flexible framework that districts can set up to meet these needs. With K-12 customers in 49 of the 50 states and 4,000 customers overall, Canvas has become the solution for districts across the country.
Much like Edcite, Google Classroom is a powerful, free tool for teachers. Teachers nationwide use Google Classroom’s suite of tools to send assignments to students and manage their class stream. We are really excited to be integrating with Google Classroom Gradebook as an additional step in this journey.
March 14 is National Pi Day! [ Insert your own annual Pi Day pie joke. ] Pi Day is all about 3.14159265359, the mathematical constant that appears in formulas, physics, and even architecture.

Edcite has over 35,000 assignments in the public assignment library covering grade levels, subjects, and standards! Every day teachers in the Edcite community share new assignments into the library. You can also find state released practice tests digitized by the Edcite Team and other high-quality assessments from organizations such as Eureka Math and Achieve the Core.
Teachers give assessments so that they can find out what students understand, what needs to be reviewed or retaught, and where differentiation needs to happen. Because the goal is to determine if student learning has occurred, it’s important for assessments, especially summative assessments, to be true indications of what students know.
As classrooms celebrate Black History Month throughout the month of February, we wanted to share a collection of assignments created by teachers in our community. Incorporate these resources into your lessons to honor great leaders, writers, artists, athletes, and scientists and to help guide students through discussions about civil rights. These assignments can be used not only during Black History Month but year-round in your classroom.
