Using data to uncover where students struggle helped instructors like Kirk Lindsay improve outcomes at Chief Tahgee Elementary Academy in Idaho. He analyzed results from Istation’s computer-adaptive assessments to find out what was keeping one student from progressing.
“One of our 5th graders was struggling,” Lindsay said. “He was always working, but it just never seemed like he was going to get it.”
Lindsay discovered the student’s true potential and capabilities using Istation’s reports, which identified specific skills that required more focus and attention.
“He was so stressed over the things that he didn’t get, he wasn’t working on the things that he did get,” Lindsay said. “He wasn’t working on the things that he did know.”
After identifying the student’s problem areas, Lindsay worked with the school’s interventionist to address the challenges.
“He came back in to take the next test and just launched,” Lindsay said. “Just with the little adjustment, the one thing that he wasn’t getting, that was holding him back. We had a tool that found where he struggled.”
