Continuous Improvement: Adjust

Goals, Objectives and Priorities

In the software, district leaders will find the KW21 Learning Objectives aligned to each grade level that represent a Relevant, Viable, Measured Curriculum (RVM-C). This alignment is designed to save valuable time and serve as a guide to district leaders and teachers who can exercise local control over the decisions about the knowledge and skills deemed most effective at the district, school, and classroom levels.

Instructional Practice and Assessments

The student performance analytics guide decisions on the most effective Professional Development (PD) programs which should support the activities of the district Professional Learning Communities. For example, using the KW21 software to compare Grade 3 student performance results on district wide assessments with those of end-of-year state exams on the same Learning Objectives will identify gaps that require adjustments to practice. Organizing PD around these instructional and learning challenges will support the continuous improvement model.

Professional Development and Learning Goals

Precisely focused PD saves time and keeps teachers engaged with the continuous learning process. Targeting adjustments to instructional practice aligned with specific student learning needs is a strength of the KW21 platform. The precision of the system can increase the effectiveness of tiered learning by forming more homogenous groups of learners and adapting instruction on the basis of more precise information. This enables ongoing, prospective review on the effectiveness of adjusted strategies during the school year. Armed with these analytical reports, meeting time can focus on very specific topics where adjustment is clearly necessary. The KW21 software analytics allow districts to see the evidence of all group and individual efforts to prepare students for life beyond the K-16 experience.
