Common Core Watch Since we at Fordham began reviewing state academic standards in 1997, we have understood—and made clear—that standards alone are insufficient to drive improvements in student achievement. Standards describe the destination, but they don’t chart the journey for leaders, teachers, or schools, which means that for standards to have any impact on what students actually learn, they must influence curriculum decisions, assessments, and accountability.

If less than 60% of students got a question correct, the question will be highlighted in orange to alert you. Additionally, students who scored less than 70% on the assignment will be highlighted in red.

Teachers know there will be times when they will need to lean on videos to allow students to access information asynchronously. Video has several benefits in a blended or online course. Videos put students in control of the pace they consume and process information. They can pause, rewind, or rewatch video content. Education Week By Peter Greene June 10, 2015 at 8:41 AM Balancing the Equation: Supply and Demand in Tomorrow's School Choice Marketplaces offers a more nuanced view of a charter-choice landscape than the freemarket acolytes at AEI have presented in the past, but it still reads like an exercise in unicorn farming.

Share Assignments with Parents/Reuse Assignments Next Year Google Classroom is a closed environment. This means that the assignments and discussions in Google Classroom are only available to students in the class. I view this as a positive thing to protect the privacy of students in our classes.

Good.Co released a first semi-private beta almost a year ago, with a web app that offered up an array of quizzes to help users evaluate their own personalities, compare scores with friends and colleagues, examine culture fit with companies and managers, and discover their work team's personality. "The value proposition is the same, but the product is re-architected to be more social, gamified. The quizzes—and there are many—have become more nuanced.
