The Newark Board of Education is firmly committed to promoting effective teaching practices, with formative assessments being a key aspect of the District's educational approach. By incorporating formative assessment techniques in classrooms, dedicated teachers are able to maintain a strong connection with student progress and establish a continuous cycle of valuable feedback.
The integration of innovative tools such as Peardeck and Lumio as regular components of Classroom Formative Assessments (CFUs) empowers students with dynamic learning experiences and immediate engagement. This technology offers invaluable data-driven insights into student performance, providing educators with opportunities to tailor their instruction with precision and access resources that facilitate student excellence and the realization of their full potential. The District takes great pride in prioritizing these methods, which place student growth and teacher effectiveness at the core of the educational journey.
