Spotlight on Strategy
- Collective data allows educators to compare performance at the beginning of the year to performance after learning a specific topic. The results allow educators to address individual issues and topics that are challenging.
- Focusing on specific questions that need to be addressed by individual students and the class as a whole allows for a customized education.
- Instructional resources help match teachers with specific resources tailored to individual student’s performance levels.
