Using Baseline Data for a Strong Start This Fall
The start of each school year brings anticipation, energy, and excitement—and, this
year, much uncertainty.
Has the current situation created data gaps at your school or district, causing big adjustments for the 2020-21 school year? How do you know if at-home learning opportunities were effective, or if your students are fully prepared for the school year?
baseline data for each of your students can help you bridge these gaps.
The good news: ACT can help you not only acquire this information, but also use it to your best advantage.
Baseline data can help determine students’ instructional readiness and measure their growth while enabling you to monitor your school’s performance.
This webinar can help inform your planning and goal setting for the upcoming school year.
