ALEKS Corporation, provider of web-based assessment and learning solutions for mathematics, science, and business courses, has released a new report that provides K-12 educators with detailed student performance data to support the creation of Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). This report is available for immediate use and provides real-time data to monitor each student’s progress through the course material. This allows teachers to determine the unique needs of each student and effectively differentiate instruction.
Key data displayed in the report include:
- Present Levels of Performance
- Ready to Learn Topics
- performance against Common Core or state standards
- daily time spent and topic masterylog of recently learned material.
The report has been formatted for on-screen viewing and optimized for printing so it can be included in student portfolios or IEP meetings.
Like all data in ALEKS, the Present Levels of Performance (PLOP) details are dynamic and current with the student’s latest performance.
“I couldn't ask for a program that gives me a more detailed look at the specific objectives and topics that my students have mastered or are struggling with. The reports that ALEKS provides are extremely helpful during parent-teacher conferences, IEP meetings, and student-teacher conferences,” said Kristina Linberg, who teaches at Liberty Junior School in Ohio. “With ALEKS, I am able to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses and adapt my teaching to fit their needs.”
A list of Ready to Learn Topics is also included in the report and is continually updated based on the student’s performance. ALEKS provides each student with a personalized learning path based on these topics. As the student works through the course, ALEKS updates the student’s unique learning path. This continual re-optimization not only helps educators create accurate IEPs, but also challenges students without frustrating or boring them.
ALEKS course products are correlated to Common Core and state standards, and can be easily implemented as a core curriculum or supplement for students in grades 3-12.
