All teachers received the printed report and have access to the platform for more details on the 33 measured skills in each event.

The EDK allows you to create and apply any assessment in digital format, by tablet. The fix is ​​instantaneous and the data is saved in the cloud, where managers and teachers can access, via web, Intelligent reports that help to identify the difficulty of each student based on the result. The reports bring a current picture of the student's skills from an array reference.
