Just back from nwea conference

Clip to ScrapBook #1

The Midwest NWEA Conference was held in Lincolnshire, IL this year, and I must say I learned so much more about NWEA testing. My district has had NWEA for two years going into our third and we are ready to focus on national rankings and our student growth. While we are ranking very high state wide, we are working on national standards as well. As you know Pres. Obama has started an initiative focusing on student growth instead of a child being on a grade level. Personally, I know the challenges of moving a child thats on a 2nd grade reading level in 4/5th grade to grade level.

I've always focused my students and parents on individual growth. So what do think about this initiative? and .....have other schools/districts adopted NWEA, what are some challenges and what instructional practices have admin and teacher implemented to focus on student growth.
