Considerations • What blended learning model will you use to deliver? • Staffing or scheduling needs to be considered. • Will differentiated timelines be possible if desired? • How does a student know they are done? • What’s next for them? Classroom Supplement Placement Testing or Cohort Classroom Instruction EdReady Montana Post Tests and Grades
  50. 50. Considerations • Placement into program • Creating custom assessments to prepare students for X • Assistance during program or individual? • How will placement work after completion? Skill Development Outside Classroom Placement Test or Assessment Coaching and/or Facilitation EdReady Montana Post Tests and New Placement
  51. 51. Considerations • Who is the target audience? All students or some subset? • What does the EdReady custom solution entail? • What will need to be added to supplement it? • How will it be integrated and delivered? Pathway Prep Placement EdReady Montana Supplemental Skill Development Entry into Program of Study
  52. 52. How to Get Started  Parallel effort  SME Teams building assessments and other pathway- specific “curriculum”  EdReady Math Skills as base, build out from there to address pathway needs  Campus-based teams planning implementation with EdReady Montana Staff  Set up user accounts  Choosing assessments for each campus  Student account creation and enrollment from each site  PD/Training for implementation
  53. 53. Final discussions?  Fill out online or handed out interest forms  Set any follow up meeting on calendar?  Other items for the good of the order?
