This will be a great tool for helping students obtain Microsoft certification and help teachers grade more efficiently
PROVIDENCE, RI, October 12, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- B.E. Publishing announced today that Computency.com has completed its beta testing and will go into widespread release on January 1, 2020.
According to President & Founder Michael Gecawich, "As a former high school teacher, I can tell you that Computency.com is a game-changer because it lets computer teachers focus all of their time and attention to actual teaching, not on grading assignments."
Computency.com operates from within students' Microsoft Office applications. Once they log in, they click into the Computency add-in and the lessons begin immediately. Students are asked to complete a specific task, such as centering text in Microsoft Word, creating a formula in Microsoft Excel, or adding a transition in Microsoft PowerPoint.
The Computency.com add-in immediately and automatically grades the lesson. If the student has completed it correctly, he or she is allowed to move on. If they have made a mistake, Computency allows them to try again. Teachers can then see which students are struggling with which concepts so they can optimize their teaching in real-time.
"This will be a great tool for helping students obtain Microsoft certification and help teachers grade more efficiently," said Shatina Chambers, M.Ed., Business Education Teacher, Aldine School District, Houston, TX.
Cynthia Espinach, another computer teacher writes, "This will save me so much time and give my students an alternative to learning and training for Microsoft Office Certification. I can tell you now that I will be purchasing this and am SO EXCITED! You have no idea how long I have been waiting for this."
For students and parents looking to ensure success in the job world, expertise in Microsoft Office has a profound return on investment. Studies show that first-time employees earn 8-12% salary increase just from having these skills. Over time, that difference compounds and can results in hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of their careers. Computency.com literally turns 'learners' into 'earners.'
"My daughter is teaching me how to use PowerPoint. I can't tell you how proud I am of her. I've checked with other parents and they're telling me the same thing, that their kids are so much better than they are learning Microsoft Office," said Paul Angles, a Los Angeles, CA, parent. His daughter's class is among the first to test Computency.com in a classroom setting.
