TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS, EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS HOT TOPICS OF UPCOMING VANTAGE LEARNING WEBINARS

Teacher effectiveness has become one of the hottest topics within school, district, state education management. Measuring teacher performance based on student learning outcomes has long been a rigorous, if not impossible, process as organizations utilize data sources that heretofore could not be merged or viewed from a single source. But now those data sources and reports can be merged, not only for analyzing teacher effectiveness, but also for the development of early warning drop-out alerts, progress to AYP, cost efficiencies and more.
Vantage Learning and guest speaker Scott Kramer, VP of McCann Associates, will host two webinars to showcase new technologies that will enable organizations to view, measure, and track their information in ways not previously possible, and without elaborate systems, time-consuming processes, or expensive consultants.
“Obtaining immediate, accurate views of teacher and student performance information has been costly and almost always inaccurate,” Kramer says. “Now we’re able to show educators how they can have their information right at their fingertips with technology that harnesses data that, until now, could rarely be combined and analyzed with a high level of confidence.”
The Webinars are complimentary to the education industry:
• “Measuring Teacher Performance Based on Student Learning Outcomes” will take place on Tuesday, October 29, from 12 Noon – 1:00 p.m. EST.

• “Early Warning Systems: Developing a Student Dropout Alert” will take place on Thursday, November 7, from 12 Noon – 1:00 p.m. EST.
