  • Self IntroductionI represent the Gates Foundation, so I’m here to address the Philanthropy Perspective on education. I’d like to speak with you about the challenges in the classroom today and one of the specific initiatives underway to address it.[Stephen: Need to add some context language about how this fits within the Gates Foundations Next Generation models efforts and overall education initiatives – based on the topic of the presentation it will be expected]

  • 2. What did we create and why is this important?• Problem Statement – Not every student can demonstrate mastery of standards in the same way. – 30% of students require an alternative method of demonstrating mastery to a standard. This applies to approximately 93,000 students in Clark County. – Teachers lack the time and resources to create multiple reliable and valid assessments to measure individual student mastery.• Solution – Provide alternative personalized opportunities for students to demonstrate mastery beyond standardized assessments.
