Jane Bryan Elementary School Improves Test Scores by 22% Using PowerSchool Assessment
Prior to 2013, teachers were guessing at what kids’ needs were at Jane Bryan Elementary School. Educators didn’t have a way to individualize the student learning experience. To provide high-quality, timely, and accurate formative assessment data to administrators and classroom teachers, the school began using PowerSchool Assessment. PowerSchool Assessment is a web-based instructional improvement system (IIS) that delivers standards-aligned content, assessments, and instant reports for precise analysis of student achievement. Since then, the school has improved mathematics instruction, helped students become accountable for their performance in mathematics, and increased the percentage of students passing the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) mathematics assessments by up to 76 percent for some grades.
