Adaptive technology holds the capabilities of providing immediate feedback to influence an instructional strategy or lesson, as well as providing relevant feedback during the process of learning—not just at the end—to both teacher and student.
SMART data is measureable, actionable, relevant, and timely to math teachers and learners. In this white paper, Dr. Gregory Firn explains how asking the right questions and using the resulting SMART data is changing the conversation around how to select and use data to boost math achievement. You’ll learn from Dr. Firn’s successes as he provides some of the ways that his district transformed to a data-driven culture of personalized learning, and raised math achievement for ELLs, at-risk students, and advanced learners alike. What were the results?
Alegbra proficiency in one North Carolina district raised to to 97% and math proficiency to 89% using SMART data.
