Update MTSS processes and programs
Most schools have an MTSS program in place. In fact, using a data-driven strategy to provide students with the resources they need to succeed is part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). However, frequent updates are necessary to keep the resources logical. This re-evaluation can work in tandem with annual assessments completed by each student in your school.
Educators benefit from optimized processes as well. An entire class failing an assessment is a valid indication that educators need more resources to assist student success. Giving educators the tools they need based on student assessment data sets the entire school up for success.
Set goals and benchmark success
Assessment data is one of the simplest ways to discover areas for improvement, set goals, and benchmark success. Student information systems like Proliftic uncover these areas for improvement from the student to the district level, so it isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to improve a school as a whole.
Academic and instructional goal setting and success benchmarking are a common practice and skill among administrators. However, monitoring progress and implementing ongoing support for continuous improvement set apart schools with a culture of excellence.
Build upon learning gaps
Over the past few years alone, students have adapted to new forms of learning, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t learning gaps. A basic assessment to find out what students do or don’t know is a great way for administrators to identify what areas they need their educators to focus on.
When administration knows the areas students or educators are struggling in, the district can provide the resources and opportunities necessary to bridge that gap.
Proliftic has a commitment to ongoing support. The ability to track progress, receive feedback, and gain insights into your students, classes, grades, schools and districts all in one place sets users up for success.
