Moving The Needle With Progress Monitoring: How To Accelerate Learning And Get Growth.

 

“One of the things we’ve done for a long time is to progress monitor and look for gaps in the student’s learning and meet those students where they are,” Pruitt said. “That has really been a process we’ve done in the past.”

The pandemic put a significant hindrance on learning. With things getting back into full swing, educators are trying to make up for the lost time. One of the ways they’re doing this is by working on accelerating learning.

On this episode of the IStation Podcast, Host Courtney Echerd talked to Dr. Alicia Pruitt, Regional PD Lead/Northeast, Professional Development, IStation. They dug into how educators are trying to make up for lost time through accelerated learning and progress monitoring.

“One of the things we’ve done for a long time is to progress monitor and look for gaps in the student’s learning and meet those students where they are,” Pruitt said. “That has really been a process we’ve done in the past.”

But, educators are flipping things on the head a bit now by monitoring progress for strengths in the student’s learning, so they can build upon those and help to continue to move the needle in the right direction.

“I think it’s really finding those strengths to help those students become better,” Pruitt said. “And to become better readers, better mathematicians, better at whatever area of academic place they’re working in.”

As someone that works in professional development, Pruitt works with educators, principals, and superintendents. As a former teacher, she affected change in her classroom, and when she moved to the district level, she did the same. Her scope is a bit broader now, and she hopes to affect change throughout the state and even the country.
