In 2018, the Edmentum Research and Design team completed a study that was set in an Oklahoma school district. This district used Test Packs to structure instruction and prepare high school juniors for the ACT test, which is a portion of the state’s accountability system for high school graduation. The district requested support from the Edmentum Research team to examine the relationship between usage of Test Packs and student performance on the ACT test.
Giving students ownership of their own data study practices is a proven way to foster engagement in the learning process and establish greater trust throughout the school. Here are ways to implement a data study program that can help any student grow.
Edmentum has worked closely with NWEA to build an integration that allows NWEA MAP Growth assessment Rasch Unit (RIT) scores to be uploaded directly to Exact Path so that each student receives an individualized, scaffolded learning path just right for him or her.
We’ve created a workbook to help you distinguish between various assessment types, build goals, identify best practices around your assessments, and analyze your data in an effort to make lasting instructional decisions over the school year.
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.
Standards-based grading is a grading system in which the grade a student earns is a direct reflection of that student’s level of mastery of the standards covered. All other factors are removed from the calculation of the grade, or they are pulled out and used to calculate a separate effort or behavior grade.
Through planning and trial and error and with the help of online tools, Ms. Paquette has created a personalized learning environment to help her students achieve success. In this article, we’ll share what a typical day looks like in Ms. Paquette’s classroom and then break down some of the components that really make her classroom work.
Here’s why we’re talking about preventing summer learning loss in the middle of October—we wanted to share how a Minnesota school partnered with Edmentum to have students participate in a summer contest by using one of our K–12 programs, Study Island, during the summer of 2018.
