Progress Monitoring Ending October 9

Form 1 of the Progress Monitoring Assessment is available now to your students in grades K-8 in Math and Reading, and grades 3-8 in Science. The PMA provides four parallel assessments throughout the school year, helping to periodically diagnose students' skill gaps, provide differentiated intervention, continuously monitor progress and modify classroom instruction accordingly. Most students have probably competed their PMA.
Here is a list of the PMA windows for this school year:
  • Form 1: 09/01/15 - 10/9/15 
  • Form 2: 11/2/15 - 12/5/15
  • Form 3: 1/11/16 - 02/5/16
  • Form 4: 2/17/16 - 4/1/16
Upon your students' completion of each PMA:
  • Stride automatically assigns differentiated online curriculum and intervention to remediate specific skills as needed. 
  • Customized Printable Lesson is automatically generated for each student performing below mastery with printable skills practice worksheets targeting areas of weakness.
  • Real-time data reporting is available in easy to understand, visual progress reports at the class, school and district levels. The PMA reports show percentage of students performing below, at or above mastery or proficiency, and map improvement from one assessment to the next. Reports include detail on specific skills and standards mastered or not mastered by individual students. Visit the Reports tab in the Admin and Teacher Control panels to access these reports. 

Implementation trainings are a success across the state! 

After receiving training on Stride, teachers at Ohatchee Elementary School in Ohatchee, AL successfully began using the program in their classrooms that same day! 
Second graders are already having fun logging on to Stride and look forward to using the program at home on their laptops and tablets.

"The high level of critical thinking questions found in Stride pushed my students to get ready for the Aspire!"
