Teacher Assessments and Profiles
Next Generation Assessments knows a teacher’s technology knowledge is directly linked to his or her student’s technology literacy. Technology assessments that do not assess – or minimally assess – teachers are missing an opportunity to improve student technology proficiency. NGA’s platform addresses the whole education ecosystem to inform continuous improvement plans.
NGA provides summative assessments from which personalized technology development plans are generated. Each teacher’s plan identifies strengths and potential improvement areas. Improvement areas linked to corresponding professional development courses may be taken to improve the teacher’s technology literacy. NGA’s Teacher assessments are aligned to TPAK Model and ISTE NETS Standards for Teachers and measure the following skills:
- Technical Knowledge
- Pedagogical Knowledge
- Content Knowledge
- Digital Citizenship
- Teacher Leadership
Robust Reporting Capabilities
NGA’s platform provides a number of web-based reporting options that allow for maximum flexibility in rolling up compliance data. Some of the reports types include:
- Individual Teacher Reports
- School District Reports
- Statewide Reports
- Longitudinal Reports
Dynamic Scorecards – Track and Compare Progress
