Electronic Individual Learning Plans were developed by Learning Point Associates in partnership with the state of Washington to help address specific state-based standards included in the state of Washington's House Bill (HB) 2195 (Adobe® Reader® PDF). This legislation requires student learning plans for students who were not successful on any or all of the content areas of the Washington Assessment for Student Learning during the previous school year.
While the Electronic Individual Learning Plans were designed with the state of Washington, this pilot program is just the beginning of what is ahead in terms of providing teachers with the latest tools and systems they can use to prepare children to compete in the increasingly complex world of the future.
In November 2003, NCREL at Learning Point Associates launched the Surveys of Enacted Curriculum (SEC) in collaboration with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER). The SEC enable educators to visualize content in state standards (intended curriculum), instruction (enacted curriculum), and state proficiency tests (assessed curriculum) through a Web-based tool that collects, reports, and analyzes objective data about what teachers teach and how they teach.
Educators in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and Wisconsin have access to statewide databases of information to help them make informed decisions about school improvement. Built in partnership with NCREL at Learning Point Associates, these Web sites help identify performance gaps between student groups so that school improvement planning can include effective solutions to address these gaps.
