These tools are presented with the following in mind

--There must be a task-specific purpose* for the use of a tool or application. *Upgrading Assessment/Content/Skill(s) Instructional Practice (i.e., a tool is not meant to be used in isolation, rather a rippling effect).

--The more student-centered the learning/teaching, the higher the student engagement and positive impact. --The highest level of engagement and positive impact is considered to be fully in the “Upgrade Zone�.
