Curriculum and Assessment Audits
Research shows that the curriculum teachers use makes a difference in student achievement and motivation. A strong curriculum should allow students ample time to read, write, and discuss a variety of thoughtfully chosen and grouped texts. For elementary school students, a reading curriculum should also include explicit and systematic phonics instruction.
When we perform a curriculum or assessment audit, we review documents, talk to teachers and administrators, view implementation, examine student work, and develop a customized set of recommendations for your school or district to use as you embark on the curriculum review or adoption process.
Review Curriculum and Assessment
To start, we will review student assessment data (formative and summative) to see where students are struggling.
We use the data to group students by need. Factored into this step is the number of intervention teachers and period you have available in your schedule.
We observe lessons to see how the curriculum is actually implemented in the classroom and how students respond to it.
Examine Student Work
If your teachers need help with intervention implementation, we help with room set-up, program overview, and planning.
