By the end of the year, my students need to score proficient on several assessments, as well as learn basic skills such as number writing, letter writing, and writing short stories.
My students come to school every day ready to learn and put their best effort into everything they do.
Our school receives very little funding, and we always make do with what we can find. All of my students qualify for free breakfast and lunch and about 75% of my students speak a language other than English at home. My students are also part of a Dual Language program, which means they will graduate bilingual and bi-literate in English and Spanish. This is an amazing opportunity, but it means that students need to be on grade level in TWO languages by the end of the year.
Assessing students is a part of everyday life in the classroom. We need an easy and effective way to share the information with families so they can better support student growth and development at home.
ESGI is an assessment software that makes tracking and sharing student progress with families a breeze!
After doing the assessment, ESGI generates parent letters and flashcards that can be printed and sent home. ESGI can do this in multiple languages, facilitating communication with families who speak a different language at home. ESGI is also helpful to organize and share the data with coworkers. I can see how the class is performing as a whole, view charts to see what most of the class has mastered and what most of the class still needs instruction on. All of this will help the students make progress, and help families be more involved in their child's progress!
