Every ASSISTments teacher knows that student learning data analytics are critical for informing instruction and identifying students who may be struggling with a concept or skill, so they may provide appropriate interventions. ASSISTments has been proven to make a significant impact on student learning growth and provided pathways for teachers to use formative data in daily instructional routines.
Imagine the district-wide impact these data-driven instructional tools and practices would have if applied across every classroom in your district.
We wondered how a bird’s-eye view into every math classroom’s learning data would help districts achieve target learning goals. We asked ourselves, teachers, math department leaders, and school administrators what would change if teachers and school leaders had the ability to see and leverage learning data at any moment of any day. We asked whether a system-wide approach to data-driven instruction and management would support new teachers. We asked what it would take for instructional leaders and coaches to pinpoint where teachers require additional support at any moment of any day and how much more effective they would be with that information. The answers to those questions were the driving force behind the development of ASSISTments Advantage.
Student learning data analytics are critical for instructional leaders to effectively drive system-wide improvements in teaching and learning, not just at the end of each grading period, but every single day. When administrators and instructional coaches have deeper understandings, based on data and not anecdotal observation, they know precisely where their curriculum is being implemented with fidelity. They can zero in on what’s working and what’s not. By analyzing the data, administrators can instantly see patterns and trends across all classrooms so they can identify opportunities and measure outcomes.
Most school and district leaders are passionate about closing learning gaps in every classroom, in every subject area. At ASSISTments, our focus is on the many ways real-time learning data in math can and does uncover opportunities for learning, allows for differentiation teachers only dream about, and helps you reach your district achievement goals.
ASSISTments Advantage is a comprehensive solution that boosts learning exponentially with actionable insight and instructional support for teachers, instructional coaches and school leaders.
