I'm constantly assessing my students through both formal and informal methods. Understanding their strengths and weaknesses helps me tailor my lesson plans moving forward.

Technology Enablers

Readily available tools like polling apps give teachers immediate feedback on student progress, while allowing for interactive teaching moments.

Personalized learning tools are highly engaging, providing students with a sense of agency, while also giving teachers the ability to make immediate adjustments.

Technology Barriers

The most common state-mandated assessments programs are still paper-based, placing a time and administration burden on teachers. These programs also create a delay in feedback that makes it challenging to incorporate immediate insights into the current teaching year.

How might we shorten the feedback loop associated with formal assessments, so that teachers can quickly adapt?
