What are the Learning Outcomes and Why do They Matter?
Through NTN’s learning management platform, Echo, teachers are able to more thoughtfully assess and collect data on student performance. Teachers provide feedback on both content knowledge and the skills needed for college and career readiness. New Tech Network students often highlight Agency, or the combination of academic mindsets and the ability to take ownership over one’s learning, as a key differentiator when compared to peers at non-NTN schools. Teachers and school leaders learn through valuable professional development, project resources, and personalized coaching to set their students up with the best possible chance to succeed. The Network ensures educators are prepared to lead cutting-edge project-based learning as they transform their school culture – because students deserve schools that take advantage of every opportunity for better learning.
Quantile Measure...What Exactly Does That Measure?
As you review your students’ ILEARN results, you may notice the Quantile measure provided on the score report. The Quantile measure is different from the scale score. It is a score of your student’s ability as measured against the Quantile Framework® for Mathematics, as determined independently by MetaMetrics®. The Quantile measure is an additional piece of information to help identify student readiness to engage with new mathematical content. A great parent guide that explains this measurement tool can be found at the following link: https://metametricsinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/SEA-Quantile-Parent-Guide.pdf . Additionally, this guide has great links to find additional resources to help your child improve his or her math skills!
