Using Curriculum Mapping and Assessment Data to Improve Learning
Curriculum mapping, utilizing assessment data, and differentiating instruction can improve schools and raise student achievement. But schools need to seamlessly integrate all three techniques in order to see schoolwide change.
Kallick & Colosimo show readers what are the essential questions to ask about the curriculum, the data, and instructional and assessment techniques and how technology can drive the process. They provide real-life examples of districts using these techniques successfully. The book uses the AlterNet software as an example of how technology can help schools develop an information technology system to help the reader tap into and make effective decisions based on the data.
