Personalized reading platform, ThinkCERCA announced a partnership with NWEA, a not-for-profit organization that supports both students and educators. ThinkCERCA offers differentiated reading and writing lessons that are based on research-oriented methods of developing language and literacy skills in students.
"After being inspired by teachers doing amazing work with NWEA MAP data inChicagoPublic Schools, I left the district to make rigorous personalization and data-informed, student-centered learning doable for all teachers. We're excited to partner with NWEA, one of the original advocates for supporting teachers in personalized literacy instruction."
-Eileen Murphy, ThinkCERCA's founder and CEO
ThinkCERCA collaborated with NWEA early this year to develop a tool to help NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) users identify relevant ThinkCERCA lessons for their students. The tool allows educators to:
Browse the ThinkCERCA library with the help of search terms and language that mirror the ones used in NWEA MAP reports
Connect requirement and strengths of students as seen on NWEA MAP reports with the lessons on ThinkCERCA’s platform
Identify the most ideal ThinkCERCA lesson type in the targeted level and instruction area to meet the needs of the students in the best way possible
