Performance Mastery

590045.tifWhen it comes to student performance, teachers typically ask these five questions:

  • How can I put standards in a student friendly language?
  • What will indicate if students have met standard?
  • What does high quality look like?
  • How will students and teachers evaluate and measure performance?
  • How will students and teachers use data and feedback to drive instruction?

“This is the first time I am more of a facilitator than a dictator! The students are enthusiastic, engaged, and completely in charge of their learning.”  Teacher, Texas

Performance Mastery helps answer these questions by creating a learning system, based in Quality Management/Continuous Improvement.Techniques learned in this workshop are:

  • Monitor progress on student performance

  • Enable students to engage in their own learning progress data, so they see exactly what to work on
  • Allow intrinsic motivation
  • Encourage students and teachers to generate and test hypothesis about their learning and performance
  • Utilize process data to monitor progress and drive learning for students, classes and schools
  • Enable teachers and administrators to monitor and document student, class and school progress
