Big Ideas Math Tech Release – 10/30/17

[October 30, 2017 10:21 AM ET]

Attention Educators,

Big Ideas Learning is pleased to announce updates to the Big Ideas Math online learning platform.

Teacher Experience Enhancements:

  • Course Benchmark teacher previews will match the assignment.
  • Fraction scores in reports now reflect partially correct scores as a decimal.
  • Reports with blank scores have been fixed.
  • The Basic Skills Handbook has been added to the middle school RTI resources.

Other Enhancements:

  • Admins, Coaches, and other non-rostered teachers can now be accepted in a Clever upload when the admin_title includes the word “coach.” Instead of searching for a single, hard-coded word, we will now search for a substring of “coach.” “Coach, principal,” “Admin, coach,” and “technology, cOaCh,” are examples of what would be accepted. Please visit for more information. 
  • The Check Answer feature will no longer reset upon saving and exiting an assignment. 
  • Assignments will now be based on server time, not the user’s device time.

Please contact if you have any questions.
