This paper describes how the author uses an online communication and assessment tool, SchoolFusion, to (a) monitor and manage middle-school students' work and provide them immediate feedback, (b) collect real-time data on students' understanding of science and engineering concepts, and (c) use the information gathered to guide subsequent instruction. Quantitative data analysis showed that the mean test scores increased significantly from the pre-test to the post-test across the entire class. Students' responses in online think-writes also revealed students' improved conceptual understanding of scientific and engineering principles.
