It's been an unbelievable year thanks to our amazing customers and partners! Here's what we've been working on!
In 2018 our school and district partners saw tremendous growth using Classworks together with student assessment data from high-quality partners such as NWEA™ , Renaissance®, and Scantron. In Alabama, where Scantron is the current state assessment, Classworks analyzed the data from more than 27,000 students. In every strand examined, students who used Classworks experienced above average growth. In several areas students performed more than 20% better than average growth!
Southside Elementary in Arkansas also celebrated success in 2018! 87% of students experienced growth on their NWEA MAP Growth scores in both reading and math compared to just 50% in previous years! When looking at test scores from fall to winter, the level of growth was well above the standard rate of improvement for their grade-levels.
And, we were thrilled to hear about Meigs Local School District in Ohio’s growth! As long-time Classworks partners they were already experiencing success with Classworks individualized learning. When the district implemented Renaissance Star, the students saw even greater success using Classworks to provide individualized assignments for their students based on Renaissance Star results!
These are just a few of the tremendous successes we’ve had the opportunity to celebrate in 2018! We are looking forward to continuing the celebration this school year and finding new ways to support your teachers and students!
New in 2018
NEW PROGRESS MONITORING
In 2018, we added brand new progress monitoring to round out our comprehensive RTI solution. Easy start and stop paired with informative, real-time data make it the most intuitive Progress Monitoring resource available.
INSTRUCTIONAL MATH VIDEOS
Last year, students began seeing brand new instructional videos at the beginning of select math assignments to guide them through differentiated problems. The videos are designed to provide direct instruction introducing the concept addressed in the activities.
How do I Play that Game?
With thousands of unique activities, sometimes it helps to have a quick refresher. Teachers and students now have tutorial videos to brush-up on their favorite games before starting. Select the video play button before beginning an activity.
In 2018, we launched three new Classworks Professional Learning options to set you up for success! We heard you when you said you needed more on-demand options to fit your schedule and preferred way of learning. Classworks has made it a mission to offer the best individualized learning experience and we applied that expertise when designing our professional learning options.
Free, online training courses that walk you through why, how, and when to use Classworks to see the most success. From using assessments to screen and assign individualized learning, to how to use progress monitoring to track the success of your interventions -- each certificate course will deepen your Classworks knowledge.
Connect sessions have quickly become the most popular of our new options! Schedule a virtual coaching session covering a wide array of topics with one of our success specialists. Data analysis, monitoring students’ performance in Classworks, conferencing, and reports are some of our most requested sessions. This option allows flexibility for teachers to schedule training during planning periods and other convenient times.
Interactive, in-person training and workshops help you set your vision for success with Classworks. Our workshops and seminars ensure all your stakeholders understand how to use Classworks to achieve your school or district objectives. Although we’ve always provided onsite training, in 2018 we added a new leadership workshop and data coaching days to meet your needs.
We see tremendous student success when Classworks is implemented with fidelity. It’s our responsibility to give teachers and students the greatest opportunity to achieve growth using Classworks. In 2018, we not only added new, high-quality training resources, we also gave teachers the flexibility to learn on their schedules. Our schools and districts are already seeing deeper implementations, more motivated teachers, and increased success with these new, flexible professional learning options!”
