How Are We Doing?
Improvements Lyles has steadily improved in all areas of the STaR Chart each year. We are well on our way to reaching Target Status. The Teaching/Learning category area is the only area that has had the slowest growth. One way to try and increase that growth are as follows: Incorporate projects to generate student presentations Use online book resources as follow-up lessons Take advantage of Plato and Study Island resources to aid with tutorials and individual student progress.
Benefits of STaR Chart Campuses and districts can use the results to help identify current technology status and plan for future goals.
