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 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.
