An ASTRO worksheet is an easy way to test your students understanding of a lesson. A worksheet consists of a series of questions which can have short answers, long answers, or multiple choice.
Whilst a student completes a worksheet, teachers can monitor their progress in real time. They can automatically mark multiple choice questions, and they can view all results in a simple dashboard.
In a lesson dialog click the 'add content' button and select ‘add Worksheet’.
This will present a blank worksheet for you to create. Start by providing a title for the worksheet and a description if necessary. Then click the '+' button to start adding questions.
Questions can have the following form:
Short question - A single line is given to the students to provide an answer. Typically used when an answer will be a sentence or less.
Long question - A text box is given to the students to provide an answer. Typically used to encourage a longer answer.
Multiple choice - assign a question and multiple choice answers. Only one answer can be right. By selecting the right answer when creating the worksheet these questions will be automatically marked.
Checkbox - assign a question and multiple choice answers. Multiple answers can be selected. By selecting the right answer when creating the worksheet these questions will be automatically marked.
Once all the questions have been added click ‘complete’ to finish editing the worksheet and add it to the lesson.
In a lesson dialog click on the three dots on the worksheet card you want to edit. Then select the edit option. This will open the Edit Link dialog where you can change the questions of the worksheet, title and description. NOTE: if a worksheet has been started we recommend not changing the question for students - only amending errors as they can end up with their old answers to new questions.
In a lesson dialog click on the three dots on the worksheet you want to delete. Then select the delete option. This will open a confirmation dialog to make sure you want to delete this link. Please note that this action can’t be undone.
To create a duplicate of a worksheet, click on the three dots on the link you want to copy. Then select the duplicate option. This will create a copy of the worksheet within the lesson.

URSOR is a brand-new app designed to allow kids to search the internet in a safe, appropriate manner. At URSOR we never track, allow advertising, or collect data of your child’s usage. Our goal at URSOR is to make a useful, safe platform for kids to start their early digital education. URSOR also allows kids to save and organise their previous searches in a visual way that helps retain knowledge and make connections between all of their interests!
For us at URSOR, an Internet for Kids means a safe place where kids can explore age-appropriate content on their favourite topics without the distractions of ads, click-bait, and hyperactive targeted content. Inside URSOR there is no social media, no auto-play YouTube, and no mindless and passive attention-killing content. Kids should be able to access the vast knowledge of the web without the exploitation of their vulnerable developing brains.
You would never throw your kid into the deep-end of a pool before he can swim, so we wouldn’t suggest doing the same with unfiltered, open-ended surfing online. URSOR starts kids slowly by introducing them to the basics of searching, choosing, and navigating sources. We remove the distractions of ads and excessive paid-for links so kids can learn first to view, digest, and retain information in a healthy age-appropriate manner.
STAY TUNED! URSOR is being fine tuned and polished as we speak and will be released by Autumn 2022. Until then please sign-up here for weekly updates on our progress, interesting links for kids, and our super-helpful blog posts!
