As schools across Illinois continue to navigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the EdSystems team is pleased to share a new resource for guiding the development of information-gathering systems in remote and blended learning environments. Facilitated by EdSystems, A Framework and Resources for Measuring Student Needs and Development During Remote and Blended Learning is a project of the Data, Assessment, and Accountability Committee of the Illinois P-20 Council.
The framework, available both as a PDF and website, is intended as a resource and support for districts and schools to self-assess their information collection and reporting approaches regarding student needs and development in the areas of (1) Engagement, (2) Social-Emotional and Physical Needs, and (3) Academic Progress and includes promising practices and resources to help to guide a continuous improvement process.
The Framework is intended as a living document, meant to capture best thinking as our understanding grows with experience and as we adapt to a rapidly changing context. We hope you will help us by sharing your experiences, promising practices, and resources so that other teachers and administrators around the state can benefit. Please visit the site to submit your information.
