ASSISTments and the Louisiana Department of Education have teamed up to provide educators with additional acceleration resources to help address students’ unfinished math learning, which has been amplified as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Building on our initial work this year; ASSISTments has created the LDOE Acceleration Resources content folder, which houses readiness diagnostics and tutoring exit tickets crafted by Louisiana teachers and the Louisiana Department of Education. These assessments are a part of the Accelerate Initiative, Louisiana’s Pre-K through high school tutoring strategy.
Teachers can use the readiness diagnostics to understand student knowledge of prerequisite standards before teaching a grade-level module from Eureka Math or unit from Illustrative Mathematics, and provide students with Just-In-Time support to engage successfully with upcoming lessons.. Tutoring exit tickets are then administered to measure student growth and monitor progress of prerequisite standard mastery, effectively accelerating math learning.
We are excited to announce that Louisiana’s readiness diagnostics and tutoring exit tickets can be found in the LDOE Acceleration Resources content folder and are available to educators nationwide. Click here to see a list of all Louisiana Department of Education Accelerate Content in ASSISTments.
