In this webinar with WestEd and KnowledgeWorks, engage with researchers, practitioners, and district leaders to explore how we’re using continuous improvement as a critical component in the formative evaluation of our ongoing work with the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. We are two years into a five-year implementation of personalized, competency-based learning in districts across the state, and we are excited to discuss and share tools, continuous improvement processes, and lessons learned.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learn about the mechanisms for continuous improvement including data collection instruments, reporting tools, and progress monitoring efforts for transforming districts.
  2. Review learning and results from year one.
  3. Hear about our lessons learned and best practices for building adaptive tools and processes for measuring change while shifting to a new normal in the era of COVID-19.
