Visible Learning Plus Evidence Gathering Tools

 

Measure Growth 

How do you know that your time, energy, and resources are focused on what works best?  

Throughout your Visible Learning journey your school will learn to use various assessment tools to identify key areas of improvement. These evidence-gathering tools measure the actual and perceived extent to which high-impact practices are present in your school as well as the underpinning beliefs that have a dramatic effect on student learning and achievement. The results from these assessments are then used to help you identify the key elements to focus on for a completely customized professional learning action plan.
