Data Training

The IDOE has produced TWO new resources that allow schools to use ILEARN-related data.  One is the Standards in Essential Need of Support(SENS), which focuses on specific standards.  The other is the Academic Impact Study, which looks at each individual student who started taking ILEARN in 2019 and subgroups. Both are valuable, but the time to dig in is limited. If you are looking for training and resources, join us on October 19 from 9:30 - 11:00 EST.

New Science Standards 

Have you had the opportunity to dig into the new science standards? Are you able to explain the 3D science standards? Are you familiar with Performance Expectations in the new standards? Do you need resources to support the work? Chances are you have been overwhelmed and have this work on your long to-do list, but the many hats you wear keep you too busy.
