As teachers we ask ourselves, “How do we know what students know?”
When we can walk around a classroom and observe students’ work, hear conversations, engage with questions, we get clues about what students are understanding.
In our hybrid model, we are looking for new ways to observe what students know.
Over the next few months we as educators are engaging in our own learning around designing instruction and assessment. We are studying Universal Design for Learning. You can read more about it here!
Another way we see what students know is by using MAP Growth (MAP) assessments. MAP gives your child the chance to show off what they know and how they problem solve! For us, it gives us information about what your child is ready to learn next.
If you would like to learn more, we are having an information session Thursday, September 23. Check the email from your child’s teacher for joining information.
This information session will be most informative for families who are new to Mustard Seed or new to MAP testing. We plan to record the event and send along later.
