Monitor Student Intervention with the Most Intuitive Resource on the Market
PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA – September 10, 2018 – Classworks® by Curriculum Advantage, Inc, a best-in-class online intervention solution, adds new progress monitoring for grades 1-8 to its comprehensive suite. Classworks simplifies the Response to Intervention (RTI) process for teachers with universal screening, evidence-based instruction, progress monitoring, and real-time data.
Classworks Progress Monitoring tracks the overall effectiveness of a student’s intervention using easy-to-administer Curriculum-based Measurement (CBM) probes. The probes are brief and assess the student at their grade level in areas beyond basic fluency. Teachers have immediate access to scoring and automated skills analyses, including rate of improvement recommendations.
“A common challenge for teachers is that progress monitoring tools are labor intensive. This is counterintuitive because frequent progress monitoring allows teachers to quickly adjust interventions, leading to improved outcomes. Classworks progress monitoring is designed with ease of use for the teacher at the forefront,” says Jerry Henley, Vice President of Customer Experience. “Scheduling progress monitoring and viewing real-time data is done with ease. Teachers can spend their valuable time on providing the right interventions to help students succeed.”
Support at Every Tier
The new resource complements Classworks comprehensive intervention program. Classworks is one of the few programs on the market today that supports each tier of the RTI process in one intuitive platform.
Classworks includes high-quality, standards-based reading and math instruction and screening to support students at tier one. Classworks is best known for its adaptive, individualized instruction informed by each student’s assessment results. Students work on concepts in direct response to their needs--perfect for tier two support. At tier three, Classworks supports students with increased instructional time on lessons customized to their specific needs. Teachers can easily increase the frequency of progress monitoring to determine if adjustments are needed.
“There are many instructional resources to support RTI, but, often they only address one or two components. Having to purchase and train teachers and students on multiple programs is expensive and time consuming. Classworks is the all-in-one RTI resource we needed,” says Dr. Manika Kemp, Federal Programs Director, Clarksdale School District, Mississippi. “Plus, Classworks offers the added benefit of connecting with our Renaissance Star® and NWEATM MAP® Growth assessments. Now, regardless of grade level, my teachers have the data to identify which students need support, the instruction automatically individualized for the student, and progress monitoring to ensure that the intervention is working.”
