When learners are using a National Geographic Learning program and making full use of Spark, the supporting digital platform, it is a simple process for teachers and institutions to track student progress. The Assignments, Assessments and Gradebook are powerful tools that allow educators to gather performance data and turn this information into insights about individual and class achievement. This enables teachers to make best use of possibly their most valuable resource — classroom time — to focus time where it is most needed and propel students to higher levels of performance. In this session, we explore each of these three tools in more detail, modeling how they can be used in helping our learners become ever more successful.
