The Right Fit
from Education Week Teacher
Tamara Fisher writes: "A new school year has begun, and I wanted to share with you a great moment from these early days. One of my colleagues and two of my students have been big contributors to the smile on my face this week. At the end of last year, we did some off-level assessments on a couple of my students who have repeatedly hit the ceilings on grade-level assessments. We obviously knew they were 'up there,' but we didn't know just how far. And we therefore were uncertain as to what the right placement (in their case, in mathematics) was. Off-level (or 'out-of-level') assessments are a great way to find out where these outliers really are in their learning growth and progress."
