The NROC Project offers ongoing professional development opportunities that are free and can be accessed by anyone.
In 2015, Jacksonville State University (JSU) adopted EdReady as a learning-centered placement tool. Since then, the school has helped thousands of underprepared students avoid traditional remediation, effectively reducing student-incurred costs and improving student retention. During this webinar, JSU faculty will unveil new institutional research that demonstrates that a student’s use of EdReady is a graduation indicator.
Join us as we explore how Dr. Bobbie Reeders, Principal of the Killeen Independent School District's Pathways Academic Program, and Kim Wray, Course Development Specialist at the Idaho Digital Learning Academy, are using EdReady, a personalized learning platform, to help at-risk and virtual students prepare for college.
The NROC Project's ongoing webinar series is comprised of 1-hour professional development sessions that highlight educational thought leadership, NROC case studies, and technical trends, tips, and tricks. These videos are appropriate for both people new to the community as well as long-time friends and power users. If you are looking for details about implementation best practices, check out our Info Session series.
In this webinar, we examine how to break down barriers to post-graduation success that disproportionately affect low-income and minority students.
Developmental education reforms nationwide are striving to create more equitable college opportunities and career pathways. How might local partnerships help increase student persistence, and streamline time to credit-bearing course enrollment and program completion?
Join us as we examine strategies for increasing success among nontraditional students of color in online (and hybrid) learning environments. Based on the lived experiences of students who successfully completed developmental and college-level courses, the Maricopa Community College model for ensuring college readiness illustrates the importance of collaboration among administrators, faculty, and staff to create success for all students.
Recently, we celebrated exemplary 2021 member contributions. We thank these members for centering learners and making NROC stronger.
Join us for a conversation about the power of multiple measures placement as a portal to student success. We examine how colleges are harnessing the adaptive capabilities of EdReady to create more equitable learning opportunities, often in lieu of high-stakes examinations.
Texas College Bridge is an initiative underwritten by the Texas Education Agency’s Home Learning Program, supported by The Commit Partnership, and powered by The NROC Project’s adaptive EdReady learning platform. The statewide initiative was launched as a response to a growing college readiness problem further aggravated by COVID-19. Partners discuss the evolution of this growing college-readiness effort and consider how secondary and postsecondary education leaders can use this work as a model for impactful programming, tailored to local populations and needs.
Get your creative juices flowing with a fast-paced tour of both emerging and established models for summer programming that will help students prepare for a successful start to the 2021-22 academic year. We explore community-based, STEM-focused programming, secondary and postsecondary partnerships, supporting Dakota Promise scholars, and an FYE (first-year experience) initiative.
With accountability measures now extending beyond high-stakes assessments, many schools are uncovering new ways of identifying gaps and accelerating gains, as they work to equitably level the playing field for all learners. Hear how leaders from resilient schools are addressing 'learning loss'.
NROC Info Sessions are short, topical implementation presentations followed by a facilitated question-and-answer period.
Join us as we demonstrate EdReady's robust reporting capabilities. We'll orient you to data that you can leverage when you're utilizing EdReady in the classroom or assigning grades. Additionally, this session will showcase the reports to check, and the key details to monitor, to ensure your students are successful.
While EdReady reports surface a wealth of information, users previously had to proactively look for students who were making progress, not hitting milestones, or not effectively using the program. Join us as we review EdReady Notifications, which enable you to identify the student milestones and behaviors that you're interested in tracking and automatically alert your instructors when students demonstrate those actions.
EdReady can be configured to best support your institutional programs. Join us as we review the student experience, with a focus on customizable elements and how you can personalize the site to meet your needs. Additionally, we'll discuss key EdReady administrative tasks that will help you prepare for the new academic term.
EdReady is a powerful alternative to traditional placement tests. While typical tests may identify students who are not ready for college-level courses, EdReady helps students actively address their knowledge gaps and master the math and English concepts they need to know to be academically successful. The tool not only identifies initial student readiness aligned with specific courses at your institution, but it also provides students with a personalized study path to help them improve their readiness.
EdReady is a robust online learning system that individualizes math and English instruction. This session will illuminate how EdReady works, decode EdReady terminology, and spotlight reporting functionality.
