Not every learner learns the same. Students are individuals with different personalities, backgrounds, and learning abilities. All of this leads to students having different ways in which they find success in school. Differentiating the learning for all students is an effective method of making sure each student finds their own best path. For some learners, schools develop an IEP (Individualized Education Program) which follows the student as they move through each grade.
The IEP is a document that includes the learning needs, plans and goals for students in special education classes. It allows all their educators to be on the same page when it comes to teaching the students and providing them with appropriate modifications and tools. The IEP is created through a team effort including all of the students’ educators as well as the parents.
Castle Learning allows teachers to track progress of individual students and instantly determine their achievement by Core or State standards, making it an ideal tool to use with students on IEPs. This can be crucial for educators who are looking to help the individual student meet or exceed district goals by analyzing results early and adopting action plans.
Teachers can easily search for content related questions within Castle Learning to create their own assignments or access pre-built, “ready-to-go” activities and assessments. When working with an IEP, these functions are available to customize to the individual student’s needs. Instant grading, detailed assessment reports, and instructional feedback give teachers a leg up on improving academic success for the student with the IEP.
Questions are also aligned to topics and state or national standards, so teachers can analyze assessment data to ensure positive progress and differentiate additional instruction as needed for the individual student.
When developing a student’s IEP, Castle Learning gives educators the exact tools they need to ensure the student is on a specifically designed path to help them succeed.
