Making the Grade: Monitoring Student’s Progress
The abrupt shift to remote learning in the spring of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, led to inconsistent contact between students and schools. As a result, many educators had to balance keeping a mindful eye on their students' social-emotional wellness with monitoring how well their students were learning.
In the physical classroom, teachers have become experts at “reading the room” to determine how well students are engaged with and understand a lesson. In the virtual environment, it is much harder for teachers to determine how a lesson is being received. That makes formal and informal assessment and progress monitoring critical.
Whether in-person or remote, progress monitoring helps educators gauge students’ understanding and inform next steps. These data also help make real-time adjustments to curricula, instructional models, and approaches as teachers learn what is working and what needs to be improved. End-of-course and end-of-year assessments provide important information on the depth of learning students are experiencing. Adapting assessments and utilizing progress monitoring in real-time is a critical piece of learning to do remote instruction well.
As we continue with remote learning, teachers and education leaders need to adapt to the new contexts of remote learning so that they are better able to make informed decisions to support student needs by selecting technology that promotes a productive blended learning environment that measures engagement, cognitive and motor skill development, and academic progress.
For these reasons, Kinems has developed a progress monitoring platform where educators track and monitor student growth on both motor and learning skills, making vivid the details of interventions delivered and the moment by moment impact on student improvement.
Within our one-stop-shop platform, educators can design personalized learning sessions for their students by selecting the targeted goals they’d like to focus on in Mathematics or ELA that are either grade-specific or based upon the child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP).
When educators utilize our active learning games with their students for Math and ELA lessons, they have access to a seamless teaching tool that evaluates and monitors every child’s academic progress in real-time.
