Below we explore how ACT Mosaic Adaptive Academic Learning helps you standardize curriculum seamlessly across all classrooms and enables teachers to create, use and share tech-enhanced learning content.
1. Design the Curriculum
- Which concepts do I want my to students master?
The best way to get started in ACT Mosaic Adaptive Academic Learning is to have a clearly defined set of concepts that your students will need to master. You can choose from one of our Learning Paths aligned to various textbooks, state standards, and NWEA MAP interim assessments or you can create your own!
- Will I use assessments to gauge student knowledge at various points in time? (Design Your Assessments)
After building the learning path, easily generate assessments from the Path. Create a pretest and a post-test and then compare results!
- What data will be most helpful to help me make pivots to my instruction? (Review Insights and Reports)
At the end of the marking period, the teacher runs the Assessment Growth report. By giving the students the Pre Assessment and the Post Assessment in the same concepts within the learning path, growth is now measurable. This allows each teacher to make necessary pivots to classroom instruction and provide additional practice in ACT Mosaic Adaptive Academic Learning . Teachers can choose to provide students with more targeted practice in a concept or instructional lessons for review. Students can continue the practice in their learning paths or move on to more challenging content.
2. Standardize the Curriculum
Once Learning Paths and assessments have been designed, standardize them and ensure that users throughout your school/district can see them. In the below example, the teacher has access to district created learning paths aligned to the district’s curriculum. The teacher can simply select a path for their students in just a few clicks!
3. Create, Use, and Share Content
The ability to share content with any ACT Mosaic Adaptive Academic Learning user means that you can save precious time. All users can be working in the same Curriculum aligned content in just a few clicks with the intuitive learning community interface. Some best demonstrated practices/examples:
- 3rd grade level teams work together to design 3rd grade learning paths and assessments for their students
