Research shows effective teachers are the key factor in student achievement. A culture of data literacy, in which all educators understand how to analyze and take action on data, defines today’s effective school. Renaissance-U gives educators and school leaders the flexibility to engage in professional development precisely when it’s needed and convenient, blending personalized, professional data consulting with self-paced online tutorials and activities.
Online support and facilitated data conversations.
Gain insight as you learn to analyze and act on your Renaissance data. A data consultant will work with a core team of two champions and the principal in each school to facilitate data conversations with teams of teachers three times a year, and question-and-answer sessions twice a year. The data coach will communicate with the core team via phone, Internet, or live chat, and will help develop a timeline for monitoring progress.
Self-paced online tutorials and activities.
Short, engaging tutorials and activities present critical content to effectively use Renaissance Learning’s assessment, math, and reading solutions and the data they provide. Teachers access online tutorials through the Renaissance Place hosted platform.
Online professional development has the same effect on students and teachers as more traditional face-to-face professional development. Learn more:
