McGraw-Hill Education | <em>Wonders</em> - The Power of Connection

Educator Newsletter, Issue 5; Spring 2018
Wonders News!

Hello to everyone in Wonders -land!

With many of you in the process of administering or preparing your students for end-of-year state testing, we’re highlighting the Wonders Assessment Handbook. This resource can help you interpret the information available through the Data Dashboard reports as you look to measure student progress and identify mastery. And the Wonders Administrator’s Guide offers assistance and parameters for conducting purposeful and effective evaluations.

Although it's difficult for those of us still sleeping under heavy blankets to believe, summer is just around the corner and with it, the 2018-2019 school year! Check out the new Teacher Dashboard option and review the Summer Transition Guide to assist you in preparing your digital accounts.

To exciting finishes and fresh starts,
Robert Lepicki
Director, Academic Design for Wonders Assessment

The Wonders Assessment Handbook assists instructors in administering and scoring the various assessment components. It will help you manage the use of multiple assessments, interpret the results, and then use that information for instructional planning. It will provide you with basic definitions and clear guidance on how test scores can be a useful resource for addressing your students’ needs.

In response to your feedback, we’ve launched a new Teacher Dashboard option that organizes your weekly lessons, activities, and printables. You can opt-in to see this from your Account Profile Drop-Down or switch back to your current Dashboard at any time this school year.
