WHAT IS ASSESSMENT?

Year 2: Lexile Levels Rise When Students Use Istation

Yesterday we started the story of Kathleen Bender, a literacy coach at Powder Springs Elementary School, and how she helped her school raise students’ Lexile level scores in just one year’s time. By year two, she and her fellow teachers were continuing to use Istation with fidelity and adding a few steps to see tremendous growth. Keep reading to see their final results at the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

Year 1: Lexile Levels Rise When Students Use Istation

Teachers at Powder Springs Elementary School have been using Istation these past two years to improve their students’ Lexile scores and prepare them for the end-of-year test, the Georgia Milestones. They have found a direct correlation between raising Lexile levels and students’ passing the reading portion of this end-of-year exam.

Istation Scoops Up 3 EDDIE Awards in Both Reading and Math

Istation received three 2016 EDDIE Awards from The ComputED Gazette. Istation Math earned its first Eddie this year, while Istation Reading continues what is now a three-year winning streak.

Customers Help Istation Plan for the Future

At Istation, we know your time is valuable. Evaluating student performance on Istation products should be quick and easy, enabling you to spend time teaching and inspiring students. When we designed our Report and Management Web portal, our goal was to make information accessible, customizable, and easy to read. We want the reports to provide valuable information that can be used to make decisions at the classroom, campus, or district level.

Integrate Technology with Purpose

Early childhood educators are continually trying to find the balance between developmentally appropriate practices and the academic benchmarks and rigor identified by the No Child Left Behind Act and the induction of the Common Core State Standards (NCLB: U.S. Department of Education 2001; CCSS: National Governors Association Center for Best Practices 2010). Tablets used during play certainly have the potential to help meet these demands.

What's New at Istation? Ipractice and Teacher Station Updates!

The Teacher Station feature inside the Istation app can be a hidden gem that classroom teachers miss out on. I continue to share the great news about this feature with my former colleagues in the classroom because I didn’t know about it until I used Istation more regularly as a teacher.
