Districts transitioning to Common Core State Standards and new instructional effectiveness responsibilities can now receive actionable, real-time data with Galileo® K-12 OnlineDashboards.
Dashboards, launched by Assessment Technology Incorporated (ATI), offer educators a convenient method to view and interact with data for evaluation, assessment, and instruction in a single location. Using widget technology, Dashboards display graphical information quickly and clearly.
“We believe technology should support educators’ efforts to enhance the learning experience for students in a simple and concise manner,” says John R. Bergan, Ph.D., ATI president. “Educators can quickly scan Dashboards for critical data on student learning.”
Dashboards include two views, an administrative view and a staff view. Each view offers widget technology to display information graphically. Widgets within Dashboards invite users to act upon presented data in various ways. For example, a user may drill-down from a graphical assessment overview to view specific student responses to the assessment. A user may also plan, schedule, and implement differentiated instruction based on the observed assessment results. In addition, the user may schedule and implement components of a unit plan in response to assessment information reported through Dashboard technology.
Dashboards offer the ability to:
• obtain data gathered and reported through Galileo that supports multiple types of differentiated instruction, essential in implementing Common Core State Standards instruction;
• generate custom reports in addition to using the wide array of ready-made reports;
• cross-classify student achievement with student growth yielding information to guide instruction; and/or
• receive data on whether teachers at a selected school have maintained the expected growth of their students in the selected subjects.
Dashboards are part of the Galileo K-12 Online comprehensive all in one instructional improvement and instructional effective system. ATI technology supports educators through valid, reliable assessments aligned to state standards and Common Core State Standards with a broad range of online modules offering rapid and flexible access to innovative assessment, reporting, instruction and intervention tools.
