Personalized learning isn’t a checklist. It’s an interconnected system of learning resources, surrounding the student, and orchestrated by the instructor that can be a powerful tool to drive deeper learning and engagement.
What is the biggest challenge facing teachers today? We ask this question of educators whenever we observe a classroom, host a focus group, or conduct a market research survey. The answer we receive is almost always the same: teachers never have enough time. At Edmentum, designing products that save teachers time is a core part of our commitment to being educators’ most trusted partner in creating successful student outcomes. One of the ways we accomplish this is by focusing on providing educators with comprehensive data on their students’ activity, achievement, and growth – data that is actionable, visual, insightful, and secure.
Formative assessments are used during a lesson with a goal of gathering student data to make changes where needed in real-time during instruction. With lots of different strategies and formats, formative assessments can be effective for students at any grade level.
