NWEA Webinar

November 12 at 3 pm ET


Join NYSCATE Corporate Council member NWEA at 3 pm ET on November 12 for this engaging hour-long webinar.   

Teachers are spending too much valuable time translating assessment data and finding the necessary content needed to differentiate instruction. That’s why not-for-profits, NWEA and Khan Academy, have joined forces to make it easier for teachers to differentiate and unlock learning gains for every student. Together, they have developed the MAP Accelerator a classroom tool designed to translate MAP Growth scores into personalized learning paths.

With MAP Accelerator, you can:

  • Help teachers make differentiated instruction possible for every student
  • Keep teachers in the driver seat while reducing their administrative workload
  • Accelerate student outcomes with the trusted Khan Academy personalized learning system shown to drive results

Join Joel Thomas from NWEA to learn more about MAP Accelerator and this innovative partnership in this webinar designed for NYSCATE members.

Audience: Curriculum & Instruction Directors, Special Education Directors, Assessment Directors, Elementary Principals, Elementary Teachers, Reading & Literacy Specialists.
