Getting started with Skills

3.png Audience: Teachers with School and District subscriptions

Skills are transitioning to Sitewide Standards
In June 2024, all premium school and district customers will be transitioned to Sitewide Standards. Teachers can download and export existing Skills before December 2024. Seesaw Plus (legacy) customers can continue using Skills and download data until December 2024. 💡 Learn more about Sitewide Standards!

Teachers can use Skills to see student progress toward goals in real-time. Teachers tag activities or student posts with skills and then assign a star rating. 

If you are using Skills as part of a paid subscription (Seesaw Instruction & Insights or Seesaw for Schools) please find more information about setting up and managing Schoolwide Skills here.
