Identify the Missing Elements in Your Remote Learning and Provide Specific Feedback

Here’s how LSI is working with districts to transform virtual core instruction with a focus on accelerating learning, increasing engagement, and most importantly – closing history’s largest achievement gaps.

LSI’s Student Evidence Tracker is a web-based app that solves a key challenge that every teacher has — knowing minute to minute whether every student’s learning is progressing during the lesson.

According to a study of K-12 students active in their own assessment, formative assessment effectively jumped from the 50th percentile to the 73rd percentile.With the Student Evidence Tracker, students are a partner in the learning process.

Teacher View – Student Evidence Tracker

Monitor Learning in Real-Time

Teachers can track the progress of EVERY student as lessons progress, providing time for targeted instructional adjustments before testing.

Track Virtual Student Engagement

Ease the burden on teachers because they have instant data on which e-learning students are motivated, learning, and engaged.

Flag Subgroups of Students

Prioritize ESOL students, reluctant learners, or those who have IEPs so teachers know where to provide additional support.

Students Assess Their Own Learning

Once they understand a lesson, students simply check the specific learning goals from the teacher, who then confirms the students’ self-assessments.

Students Safely Ask for Help

Students can effectively “raise their hands” to express learning difficulties in a safe, virtual space where their classmates can’t see.

Effective Online Teaching Strategy

Student Evidence Tracker allows teachers to pivot and intervene in the moment, not after the fact, to prevent learning losses on the spot.

Why is Formative Assessment so Effective?

Increases student learning and motivation with clear learning goals and criteria for success
When students understand their learning goals and criteria and use them in self-assessment, both learning and motivation increase (McMillan & Hearn, 2008).

Makes student thinking visible as students respond to the teacher and one another
Classroom discourse, based on open questions that showcase student thinking, help students learn to think and express themselves in a discipline (Forman, Ramirez-DelToro, Brown, & Passmore, 2016).

Increases learning and engagement as students track their own progress
When students track their own progress, learning increases (Marzano, 2009/10), and so does student involvement in their own assessment (Stiggins & Chappuis, 2005).

Creates the opportunity for constructive feedback rather than just a grade
Research suggests that for most learning goals, elaborated feedback that describes students’ work against goals and criteria, rather than simply scoring or grading it, is most effective for learning (Van der Klein, Feskens, & Eggen, 2015).

Improves equity and access as students gain access to and use feedback
Providing students opportunities to use feedback can be seen as an example of the broader issues of opportunity to learn (Elliott & Bartlett, 2016) and equity.

Formative Assessment is Most Effective
When STUDENTS Self-Assess

A recent review of 33 studies of formative assessment in K-12 education in the United States found a positive effect on learning.

The review found an effect size of .29 (Lee et al., 2020), which means a student who scored at the 50th percentile in the control group would have been at the 61st percentile in the formative assessment group. This effect size is about the same as reported in previous reviews, as well (Kingston & Nash, 2011; Klute et al., 2017).

However and according to Lee and colleagues, the most important finding from the study—formative assessment interventions were most effective when they focused on student-initiated self-assessment (Lee et al., 2020).

The effect size for student-initiated self-assessment strategies specifically was .61, the equivalent of moving from the 50th percentile to the 73rd percentile.

John Hattie, Ph.D., Award-Winning Education Researcher and Best-selling Author of Visible Learning, Says Students Need to Self Assess

The remarkable feature of the evidence is that the biggest effects on student learning occur when teachers become learners of their own teaching, and when students become their own teachers. When students become their own teachers, they exhibit the self-regulatory attributes that seem most desirable for learners (self-monitoring, self-evaluation, self-assessment, self-teaching).2

Student Evidence Tracker helps kids focus on learning targets by:

  • Keeping them engaged as they track and self-assess
  • Helping them self-regulate on learning tasks

Schools (or Districts) Turn to LSI’s Student Evidence Tracker During Online or Hybrid Learning When Their Teachers Experience:

Low student engagement in their learning tasks during remote learning
Difficulty getting a clear view of which students are progressing and which are struggling during remote learning
At-risk learners getting lost in the changing environments of remote or hybrid classrooms
Leaders who want to ensure high-quality virtual learning experiences and measurable results for all students
Difficulty progress monitoring minute-to-minute learning of students in remote or hybrid environments
Students who are unable to self-regulate and focus on their learning tasks
Learning gaps that may not be evident until it’s too late: when students underperform on benchmark tests

LSI’s Student Evidence Tracker is also available for brick and mortar schools.

PRICING: Student Evidence Tracker starts at $3 per teacher/per month, with group discounts available for $2 per teacher/per month. Contact us for details.
