White Papers

One of the many questions teachers ask about PEG Writing is whether or not their students with limited keyboarding skills can use PEG Writing. Read our white paper for suggestions on how to enhance your students' keyboarding skills.

It is well known that boys lag at all grade levels behind girls in literacy achievement, and although a multitude of books and articles have been written about this phenomenon, the gap continues. The National Assessment for Educational Progress (2012) reported that of the three ages tracked, only nine-year-old boys have made any significant progress since 1971 in narrowing that gap, and that gap is world-wide.

Among the complaints most teachers have about end-of-year tests is that they provide little or no actionable information about students, at least for the current school year. Even interim assessments, given three or four times a year, may not yield timely feedback, especially if portions need to be sent out for hand scoring of open-ended responses. For test feedback to be useful, it has to be tangible, transparent, actionable, customized, timely, ongoing, and consistent. That’s a tall order.

Making sure all students are college and career ready requires not only an alignment of curriculum and instruction with college and career requirements but also an approach to monitoring student progress on a continual basis, with in-class formative assessments, frequent interim assessments, and focused summative assessments.
