The audience will be introduced to Achieve, a next generation learning solution that is built on a comprehensive system of formative and summative, cognitive and non-cognitive assessments, grounded in research-based learning science principles. The development of the system and the process of optimization based on educator and student feedback prior to launch will be presented. The webinar will conclude with three practical strategies for implementing comprehensive assessment systems that have been shown through rigorous research studies to increase student success.
