How will the Gradebook and PI system affect teachers’ ability to monitor progress?
Several responses come to mind. Time is one. The PI system allows for assessments to be scored "automatically" and "pushed" into the grade book easily. This includes district computation and DCAs. This shortens the turnaround time for results. The results also provide increased clarity regarding student deficiencies as well as the identified "targeted" assistance. Because of the high mobility rate of our students we anticipate that student progress recorded in the "Gradebook" will also follow the student. If a student moves from one school to another, the grades will move with the student to his or her new school. This will allow teachers to have a clearer picture of a student’s progress upon entering their classroom.
