Two months before the school year ended, Riviera Middle School teachers and students clamored to use Knowre Math to prepare for standardized testing. With just a few weeks to go until testing, teachers stopped using the math software they had used all school year and switched to using Knowre Math every day in their classrooms to get ready for end-of-year testing.
Just like a coach, training athletes leading up to a big competitive event, Vivian and her co-teacher made sure to set students up for success in year-end math testing in the grades of the sixth, seventh, and eighth grade, and algebra 1. In the weeks leading up to the standardized test, all the classroom lessons had already been presented, and it was time to put that learning into practice. Vivian and her students already had experience using Knowre Math, and she was confident that Knowre Math was the right tool to get students ready for year-end standardized testing.
Vivian and her co-teacher assigned work focused on grade-level standards and the skills that were most often tested. Using Knowre Math’s Teacher Dashboard, Vivian trained her students like athletes. She looked at each student's data and reviewed how long it took them to complete a problem. Students were encouraged to work toward independent mastery of a skill by using the support in Knowre Math and challenged to solve questions faster than they had previously.
Reviewing lessons with Knowre Math allowed the teachers to find and target individual student learning gaps. This meant they could provide their students with incredibly personalized reviews to meet their specific needs.
