As you found new ways to innovate teaching and learning in 2020, it was important for us to provide new Classworks features and resources to support you.
The Classworks learning progression organizes our instructional units into a research-based, teachable order. As students work up the progression they build appropriate foundational knowledge giving them greater success on more complex concepts.
One of the biggest values of this enhancement is students can begin working in Classworks on day one unlike other programs which require you to assess first. Once a students does take an assessment that data automatically adapts their progression.
Our philosophy has always been that technologies should work together to make educators' lives easier! In 2020, we added a new assessment partner, Pearson's aimswebPlus to our long list of integration partners.
Additionally, ALL test data coming into Classworks is actionable for every student, automatically. That means whether students are taking an outside assessment or Classworks screener and Progress Monitoring assessments, teachers know they're working on relevant instruction.
It's more important than ever to have data on how students are progressing. And, the reports shouldn't be complicated!
In 2020, we expanded our reporting to feature district-level snapshots of student performance. We also introduced free monthly data reviews to to provide analysis of the data to districts and create plans to reward progress and make adjustments where needed.
"I love Classworks! I think it's easy-to-use and makes my life easier in terms of tailoring instruction for every student. It is a good way to individualize your students' learning and as a teacher to know if you are being effective."
