6-8 Week Learning Groups

Periodic benchmark assessments to determine student progress and adjust student learning paths

Context

After teachers analyze data from the mastery assessments, they are able to determine similarities and trends. This allows them to identify challenging standards and groups of students struggling on similar topics. The teacher will create groups of students in each content area to help those students where they need it most. These groups, which are composed based on skill as opposed to traditional grade level, will meet at least weekly throughout the next cycle. This provides targeted, medium-term support where students need it most.
