NWEA Webinar: How did COVID impact student learning? The data is in
Tuesday, December 15, 2020 at 11:00 AM (MST) – Registration: https://info.nwea.org/wbr-how-did-covid-impact-student-learning-data-is-in.html
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted traditional forms of education and continues to create challenges for schools, districts, and the families they serve.
Now, more than ever, educators and policymakers need data to inform evidence-based policies to support our students, teachers, and families on the path to recovery. In April 2020, NWEA released a set of projections of the potential academic impact of COVID-19 disruptions modeled on well-documented summer learning loss estimates. With actual fall data in hand, we’ll present the latest national research, informed by several guiding questions that explored how school shutdowns impacted student achievement at the start of the 2020-21 school year.
Who should attend?
- District and school leaders
- Curriculum and instruction directors
- Assessment directors
- Special education leaders
What will you learn?
- A by-the-numbers look at the impact interrupted learning had on student achievement at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year
- What the results of this research might mean for educators, policymakers, schools, and districts
- Practical guidance for supporting students with unfinished learning
