Over the last 15 years, Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) have gained considerable momentum in K-12 education. In several states, including Florida, New Jersey, New York, and Ohio, these measurable instructional goals for students are now being used in teacher evaluations as well. To help state and district leaders develop a coherent infrastructure to manage, administer and report SLOs, Performance Matters™ today announces the publication of a new white paper titled, “Technology Considerations for a Successful Student Learning Objectives Program.”

In the paper, author Kimberly Fleming, Ph.D., discusses SLOs, infrastructure requirements, and recommendations to prepare for a full-scale SLO implementation. Fleming is president and founder of Core Education, LLC, an educational consulting firm focused on educator effectiveness.

One such tool is the new SLO Module from Performance Matters. Educators can build or select the SLO assessment, choose the growth algorithm, and set the target score for each student or group.

Lexia Learning Releases White Paper on Using Educational Technology to Foster a Growth Mindset In Students

  BOSTON (April 4, 2017) – The practice of encouraging a growth mindset in students in order to foster their ability to problem solve and take on challenges has gained growing awareness among educators. In fact, a 2016 Education Week Research Center survey found that a staggering 85 percent of teachers wanted more professional development to learn how to incorporate growth mindset strategies into their classrooms. Despite that, there has been little focus on the role that educational technology tools can play in shaping students’ mindsets. To address this knowledge gap, Lexia Learning, a Rosetta Stone® (NYSE: RST) company, has made available a new white paper, “Cultivating Growth Mindset with Educational Technology.”
