What is it we expect our students to learn?

Using desktops, laptops, or tablets, teams can identify essential standards, create student-friendly learning targets, and build common assessments.

How will we know when they have learned it?

Common assessments can be automatically graded via computer camera or browser. Based on their scores, students can be grouped by proficiency level. Rich charts and graphs enable teams to analyze data student by student and skill by skill.

How will we respond when some students do not learn?

Teams can then easily group students into appropriate intervention sessions based on proficiency and need. During interventions, teachers can provide evidence of proficiency, keep notes on students, and mark students for follow-up.

How will we respond when some students already know it?

Global PD automatically identifies students who are above proficiency by skill, allowing teams to group those students into targeted enrichment sessions and track their progress
