2023 Product Features & Updates

The #1 Requested Progress Monitoring Feature is Here

Student scores from any third-party assessment (NWEA MAP, Renaissance, iReady, AIMSWeb, and more) can be connected to progress monitoring plans so the data automatically updates as students participate in testing. 

Our AI-Powered Question Generator is Here

Otus’ AI-powered question generator automatically creates multiple choice, true/false, and short answer questions aligned to your learning standards. This feature seamlessly integrates AI into Otus – no additional apps or plugins required!

An Activity Dashboard Built for Administrators

When administrators log in to Otus, they will see an activity dashboard automatically populated with real-time data about how Otus is being used by other administrators and teachers to maximize student growth, as well as if the platform is being used consistently by students and families.
