NWEA's MAP® Growth™ and New Classrooms' Teach to One Roadmaps Launch New Partnership
NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2020
Mission-driven collaboration brings together MAP Growth and Teach to One Roadmaps to provide a tailored path for each and every student to achieve grade-level proficiency.
NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- NWEA and New Classrooms today announced a partnership to help more students achieve grade level proficiency in middle school math. The collaboration allows schools to access a suite of digital tools that includes interim and diagnostic assessments, best-in-class content, and personalized learning roadmaps developed by Teach to One. When used together, the tools help students achieve grade-level proficiency by providing them with a tailored, precise roadmap to focus on.
"As a longtime leader of assessment solutions that precisely measure learning growth, NWEA was a natural partner to work with as we designed these student-centered solutions. The power of this partnership is that it can enable teachers to see both precise skill level information and normed growth data," said Joel Rose, CEO of New Classrooms, the makers of Teach to One 360 and Teach to One Roadmaps. "We couldn't be more excited to team up and combine our complementary strengths."
"We need to go beyond just assessing students' skill levels and help put data into action for educators," says Chris Minnich, CEO of NWEA. "Our partnership with New Classrooms' Teach to One Roadmaps will leverage MAP Growth results so teachers can quickly and effectively tailor learning experiences for students so that they can achieve grade-level proficiency."
Tailored Acceleration to Proficiency
When used together, MAP Growth and Teach to One Roadmaps let students prioritize the skills that they need to achieve proficiency at a given grade or course level.
The partnership between NWEA and Teach to One Roadmaps now allows an option to use data from NWEA's MAP Growth assessment to determine which grade-level diagnostic a student should take on Teach to One. As students progress through Teach to One Roadmaps content, the students receive formative assessments to verify mastery of each skill and their personalized roadmaps are frequently updated to ensure they stay current and on track. MAP Growth's interim assessments will provide nationally normed math growth metrics over time and projects proficiency for each student while they work through their personalized roadmap from Teach to One Roadmaps.
New Classrooms, a national nonprofit on a mission to personalize education for each student, has partnered with NWEA for several years through their Teach to One 360 program. This expanded partnership is an outgrowth of the urgency felt by both organizations to support students, parents, and teachers in the wake of COVID-19's radical disruptions to education caused by the pandemic.
