New Look and Feel for CompassLearning Odyssey Message Center

The Odyssey Message Center has been redesigned with a new, simpler look and feel. New functions include:

  • A Reply button in the menu at the top of the screen. You can select a message in your mailbox and click Reply to compose a reply in the Message Center editor, rather than having to open the message. 
  • The ability to open messages with a single click rather than a double-click.
  • A filtering option, which has been added to all mailboxes.
  • Text in columns in your Inbox wrapping automatically, eliminating the need to resize columns.

Content and Correlations Enhancements

  • Updates were made to NWEA correlations for Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and Vermont.
  • Updated Common Core alignment has been added for Florida customers. 
  • New authentic tasks are available in the 7th grade math curriculum. 
  • Improvements have been made to the chemistry curriculum.
  • Due to Microsoft ending support for Microsoft Agent, read-aloud functionality that requires this technology has been removed from certain K-8 activities.
