We conservatively estimate that the ratio of benefits to costs is 9 to 1 for later school start times and 40 to 1 for middle school reform.
A precise benefit-cost calculation is not feasible for the set of teacher assignment reforms we describe, but we argue that the cost of such proposals is likely to be quite small relative to the benefits for students.
In this paper, we argue that the debates over these “flashy” policies have obscured a potentially important direction for raising student performance—namely, reforms to the management or organization of schools.
By making sure the “trains run on time” and focusing on the day-to-day decisions involved in managing the instructional process, school and district administrators may be able to substantially increase student learning at modest cost.
Selecting any assignment will allow you to grade it, make edits, or view the assignment from a student's perspective.
By default, your upcoming assignments will display by order of due date under the Assigned arrow. Upcoming assignments are any with work left to grade, or assignments that are scheduled to assign later.If your student answers three questions from your planned skill incorrectly, they will fail out and be locked out of these questions until they answer at least 20 questions from outside of the skill.If they answer 20 questions outside of the skill, they'll be returned to it the next time they login.If another skill is available your students will automatically be moved to the next selected skill in your plan.If no additional selected skills are available they'll be moved back to the normal line of questions.to enter task details, the class it's for, and a due date if needed.Once saved, the To do status is automatically applied.There are two places to view your upcoming, graded, and draft assignments.You can view them by class, or view them across all your classes.At any time you can completely remove the assignment by selecting the purple line in your calendar When starting, you will be asked to select which test you would like to use, and which grade level that is to be assigned.Once you have decided on your test, you will be prompted for a date range for your students.
