UPDATES

SAGE
Julie Quinn
Recording (Sorry I missed the first 5 min)
Updates pushed back for SAGE, Early April for next release of in Formative assessment that includes assignment creation, school level sharing, Summer (early June) updates will be UTIPS pull in.
Talking with AIR on reports, hopefully better info by Fall.
Question- Is it past time to be able to mark UTIPS questions by standard for the import into SAGE Formative? Plan is to put a tool into UTIPS Core that will export, requirements to be accepted by SAGE formative is what Julie's group is working on right now, it will export as a qti file, in SAGE Formative the qti file can be imported, goes to sandbox or can be published on the resources area of SAGE Formative, Teachers can choose what to export/import.
Old UTIPS webservers will be turned off at the end of this school year. Databases will be open until fall to pull items into UTIPS Core.
Every Friday at 1 pm Julie's staff will be available in Adobe Connect for Q&A. Julie will send the address for the Adobe Connect meeting to the CForum list.
