Growth Beyond A Snapshot

What exactly is “growth,” and how is it measured? The era of assessment and accountability has school leaders and teachers transfixed on student achievement in unprecedented ways. The pressure has never been more intense. We constantly hear about the lack of time that hinders teachers’ ability to focus on student growth.

It doesn’t have to be this way. A healthy, unified learning ecosystem designed around student growth is within reach – by bridging assessment, implementing a smarter ecosystem and championing teachers as coaches of personalized learning.

This panel will discuss growth as an important aspect for understanding effective instruction, as well as supporting the student.
