The shift to remote learning–although challenging–gave way to a more thoughtful approach to online teaching and learning that remains today. The development of blended learning materials to support face-to-face activities beyond the classroom has allowed students and teachers to connect in ways that weren’t possible before. Although learning can now take place almost anywhere– whether in-person, remote, or hybrid–the need for determining what students know and how much learning they have retained will only grow in importance.
As you look to address individual student needs, key questions that inform instruction will remain top of mind, such as:
- What do my students know and don’t know?
- What do I do next based on their current mastery levels?
- How can I improve my own teaching to help students learn?
To personalize learning, schools should look to develop a strong assessment strategy—and have an assessment management system (AMS) that fully supports it.
