This past October, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) released its testing results and analysis for K-12 students in the United States—commonly known as The Nation’s Report Card—for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The report details the sharpest drop in NAEP math scores ever recorded for fourth and eighth graders and paints a clear picture of the immense impact that the challenges associated with the pandemic have had on student achievement.

Among these results is evidence that learning disruptions continue to disproportionately affect non-White students, making the need for equitable access to a quality education for every single learner all the more urgent. Luckily, the educator and learner support strategies that your school or district needs are already at your fingertips! Watch this edWebinar to learn how you can utilize competency-based learning and instructional best practices to:

  • Mitigate the effects of unfinished learning in math
  • Accelerate NAEP and student achievement scores for all learners at any level of mastery
  • Focus educator coaching and support efforts on math instruction, thereby increasing job satisfaction and teacher retention

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 school and district leaders as well as teachers.
