The 2016-2017 academic year brought with it the successful commencement of Esol Education’s partnership with the North West Evaluation Association (NWEA), which offers Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) workshops and training events for teachers at regional schools in Cairo, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The training sessions enable teachers to apply the data generated from MAP tests, to help understand where students are in their learning journeys, and differentiate teaching to help each student improve. After the training, teachers are able to use the information on the “Class Reports” to analyze the strengths and areas for improvement for their classes and to compare it with other classes in their school's grade level to see if there are areas for collaborative planning. They are also able to use the “Class Breakdown Report” and the “Learning Continuum” to differentiate for the readiness levels in the topics within each subject tested. Additionally, teachers can use the “Student Progress Report” and the “Student Goal Setting Worksheet” to share attainment and progress data with students and parents. Led by Esol Education trainers who are NWEA-certified, training events are already being scheduled for Fall 2017. For more information, or to attend a training event, email email@example.com.
