Teachers have long told us they want more actionable insights into the assessments they give every year in their classrooms to improve learning for every student.
That’s why we’re excited to announce that Khan Academy is partnering with NWEA, a mission-driven education nonprofit and maker of the gold-standard classroom assessment, MAP Growth.
Together we’re developing MAP Accelerator, a unique classroom tool designed to help teachers deeply integrate personalized learning and assessment to accelerate student achievement.
“If I had to pick between an amazing teacher and amazing technology, I’d pick the teacher every time. That is why we wanted to build a tool that really empowers teachers. Partnering with NWEA takes our tools and resources for teachers to the next level,“ said Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy. “We’ve long heard from teachers who want to use MAP Growth as more than just a benchmark. Now teachers are able to inform personalized practice that integrates with any curriculum so they can help focus student learning on what is needed most. And it is simple and time-saving, which is super important since teachers already have so much on their plates.”
