When selecting instructional materials, districts should consider how they will evaluate the impact of those materials on student learning. Districts should develop metrics that align to the district/school’s educational goals for success. Assessments should help teachers understand and interpret student performance so they can provide personalized instruction to increase student success.
Administrators should also determine how you will measure the effectiveness of your professional learning strategy with the implementation of instructional materials.
