Thank you so much! I truly enjoyed the Classworks Fall Summit and learned so much about using the program to support our Special Education students that I plan to redeliver to my teachers. I'm looking forward to what Classworks has to offer in the future. Thanks again! ☺️
Classworks was a game-changer for us this year. With the challenges that came along with pandemic learning, being able to easily differentiate instruction for every student was a huge help for our teachers and of great benefit to our learners. Our Progress Monitoring data showed incredible growth, in many areas, over pre-pandemic levels. We’ve really been able to move the needle since we’ve brought in Classworks. It’s truly amazing what our students have been able to accomplish this year!
I cannot thank you enough. I was ready to be snotty because usually educational support companies are difficult to get answers from. I am truly impressed with the time dedicated and personalization. Seriously, if anyone asks I will always tell them to use Classworks!
We have had a Classworks revolution! Teachers are so excited now that we can show them all the ways their life will be easier by using it! We can easily connect student progress to the learning path which allows our students with exceptional needs to close gaps and achieve grade level success. Classworks allows teachers to have one place where they can progress monitor, connect instructional goals, and provide targeted instruction based on need.
I love Classworks! I think it's easy-to-use and makes my life easier in terms of tailoring instruction for every student. It is a good way to individualize your students' learning and as a teacher to know if you are being effective.
With our high achieving students, I have seen the impact of Classworks in Math. When we are problem-solving, some of those students are able to use higher-level strategies because of the exposure from Classworks. In Reading, some of our stragglers are getting a refresher on reading foundation skills that are no longer taught in the 4th-grade curriculum. I look forward to seeing their growth this year!
