In Maine, my school piloted a program that integrated professional development and assessments (both formative and summative) of high school reading comprehension and writing. It was the best thing to happen to my classroom.
The Professional Development piece, FineTune, helped me to better assess student writing. As a result when I used the summative assessments of Assessment21, I could focus on how my students were doing to analyze passages while the program kept track of the reading comprehension performance. Saved me time while helping to truly focus on instruction.
