This increasing population of diverse learners in North Carolina only continues to highlight the growing need for quality educational materials that target English-language proficiency and continuous academic growth. Before students take the 2019 ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 exam, ensure that you have an education partner who offers high-quality programs to drive your students toward desired outcomes.
So, what’s the best solution when district and school budgets are tight? Try applying for a grant! We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of grant programs that all North Carolina educators should be aware of, including state-specific programs and national awards offered by corporations, professional societies, and nonprofit organizations—all organized by category and application due date. *
Edmentum is excited to announce that we’ve expanded our partnership with MetaMetrics, the creator of the Quantile® Framework for Mathematics, in order to provide Quantile measures as an output from our Exact Path adaptive diagnostic assessments. When K–8 students complete their math assessments, the program will not only be able to pinpoint each student’s instructional level, strengths, and needs to provide a scale score and measure of academic growth, but it will also provide educators with a Quantile measure and associated range.
Intervention and remediation (also commonly referred to as reteaching) have the same fundamental goal: supporting struggling students with focused learning opportunities to achieve academic success. But still, the differences between these two flavors of instruction are critical to determining what sort of environment, time, and approach might be required to best serve your students. We’ll take a closer look at defining these terms and provide guidance on when and where they might fit into your instructional day.
Across the country, educators are committed to providing early intervention to address deficits in student learning before they ever have a chance to widen. Whether your school or district subscribes to one of the more common response to intervention (RTI) or multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) models or finds one of the many other flavors of intervention to be the right fit, there are some common factors to consider that will ensure a successful program. Now, heading into yet another new school year, it’s more important than ever that you are well equipped with proven program options to help meet the level of support each tier requires.
