Our Partnership

During the 21-22 School Year, pilot schools in Louisiana received access to instructional support, custom data reports and content within ASSISTments that directly support the state’s model for Learning Acceleration.

How It Works

Diagnose

Teachers assign curriculum-aligned diagnostics to assess mastery of prerequisite skills needed to be successful with grade-level content

Plan

Tutors access real-time data from tier 1 instruction for their students to plan data-driven effective sessions

Deliver

Tutors meet with students one-on-one or in small groups, and provide support directly connected to grade-level content

Monitor

Tutors assign exit tickets that assess mastery of pre-requisite skills and readiness for grade-level learning

Professional Learning Services

Tailored specifically to meet the needs of schools, our training and support offerings build capacity and advance math learning with practical strategies.
