4 Ways Student Progress Trackers Can Have a Lasting Impact on Student Success

Fri Nov 10 2017
A teacher's first priority is—and forever will be—guaranteeing the best possible instruction for his or her students. After speaking to thousands of teachers across the US, we've come to realize that measuring the effectiveness of a particular lesson plan and its impact on students isn't an exact science. Each student is unique; some require more attention than others, and when you're dealing with an entire roster of students, it can be easy to lose sight of individual progress. Our Student Progress® Tracker whiteboard systems have proven to be a great tool for dealing with progression tracking of students on a subject-by-subject scale. Since there are so many ways in which you can use a Progress Tracker in your classroom, we put together this handy infographic detailing the biggest benefits of tracking student progression in the classroom.

Of the many responsibilities of the Head Start program, the program aims to provide early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and families.
