How the Archdiocese of New York raised state test scores four years in a row
The Archdiocese of New York was struggling with their ability to predict and improve state test scores until they brought in NWEA’s MAP Growth tool and professional learning support. After improving the quality of their data with MAP Growth, NWEA helped schools align leadership on how to use the new data to support students.

This straightforward professional learning plan will get you up and running in your first year with MAP Growth, with support to administer assessments, analyze data, and take action.
For this episode, we’re once again joined by Dr. Chase Nordengren, principal research lead for Effective Instructional Strategies at NWEA to talk about teacher-led approaches to academic recovery.
Chase works closely with leading scholars from around the globe to turn theory into actionable practices to drive instructional improvement. His latest study, High Growth for All, captured ways teachers in one Chicago-area district are leading the academic recovery effort and producing above average academic growth over multiple years for kids across the achievement spectrum
Chase is also the author of Step into Student Goal Setting: A Path to Growth, Motivation, and Agency from Corwin Press.
“Professional learning should be intensive, collaborative, job-embedded, and data-driven.”
Jacob hops from the host’s chair to the hot seat as he sits down with Kailey to discuss his journey through the education world to become a leader in professional development for teachers. Starting with his time working with abused & neglected children, Jacob realized how much he would need to continue to grow to best serve his students. After time as a high school math teacher and coach for math educators, Jacob dedicated his career to serving teachers looking to improve their craft. Then, Kailey & Jacob get into the details of what kinds of professional learning teachers need more of now. They talk about why teachers aren’t taught about the assessment side of instructional practice and how new attitudes towards data literacy are changing that trend.
