How technology contributed to use of data for decision-making
With the initiation of our Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) computer-based assessments, teachers have excellent up-to-the-minute data to help them make instructional decisions for their students. The areas of focus for MAP are reading, math, and language skills. Since these assessments occur multiple times in the year, teachers can target individual growth for students.
