iReady, How to Find out How Your Students Did on the Diagnostic Assessment

This video will share how to look through your class' results in iReady. You will want to review this, if there are students that rushed, I HIGHLY encourage you to have the student retake the diagnostic. The lessons are only as good as the information gleaned during the assessment. I can reset it or I will be happy to share with you how you can do this. More info to come!:)

Why did we code in PBL classes in December? Meet the founder of code.org.

Mr. Partovi shares why he feels students need to learn how to code, a glimpse into the future of our children. He has an incredible life story. Ask your students about their time in PBL lab. Angela, the folks at Microsoft, county representatives and I were blown away at what our students could do.
