Measuring student growth over the course of a school year is both a complex challenge and a familiar one.
P.A.R.O.T allows schools to develop their own Learning Progression Frameworks (LPFs) against any curriculum area.
We see the benefit of this in a number of ways.
The LPF model is based on the idea that our teaching and learning programmes should meet student' individual needs along the path toward mastery.
The development of subject based LPFs gives teachers greater autonomy in how they deliver programmes of learning.
The customisation of LPFs in P.A.R.O.T means schools can really engage with Local Curriculum and decide what makes teaching and learning unique to their kura.
Your customisable LPFs can be displayed both in the Teacher Dashboard, and in your parent portal online.
You can also align these to the new Literacy and Numeracy NCEA co-requisites, making it easy for teachers to record when and how students are ready.
Ask yourself the following questions:
What do you want your students to learn?
What do your student know and understand when they arrive in your classrooms?
What can you, and other teachers at the school do to help them learn?
What evidence do you need to show that your students have demonstrated adequate growth?
