Learn how to monitor curriculum implementation and determine your Academic Return on Investment (A-ROI)
Thursday, June 6th • 1:00-2:00 PM EDT
Choosing the right curriculum and ensuring it is adopted with fidelity is essential to achieving your school district’s goals and raising student achievement. But after you select a curriculum, how will you monitor fidelity of implementation and measure the impact? Districts often wait until multiple years have passed to assess the impact on test scores, but it’s possible to track changes in teacher practice as an early indicator that the curriculum is being implemented well.
This webinar will introduce the Academic Return on Investment (A-ROI) framework for evaluating academic programs and will explain how this framework can be used to monitor a curriculum adoption so that you’ll have better information about what is working, for which students, and at what cost.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- How to go beyond test scores to assess the impact of a new curriculum
- How one district used data on teacher practice to verify that a new curriculum was actually changing instruction
- Tools that you can immediately use to monitor your next curriculum adoption
