How it Works
Step 1: Consultation to Determine Outcomes & Metrics
Through a consultative process, we'll help you determine your district's desired goals that you are looking to measure. Next, we'll help you select classroom projects that will meet these goals from Defined's award-winning platforms.
Step 2: Custom catalog created and aligned to goals
We'll create a catalog of selected projects and customized rubrics that align with your state- or district-specific goals. State- or district-specific language and/or tags added to rubrics will be added for scoring. Rubric criteria will be aligned with plans as well.
Step 3: Enhanced Reporting and Analytics
Enhanced data and robust reports will be custom-created for you to allow you to track progress and measure growth toward your graduate profile goals. You'll have the ability to filter and focus on specific buildings, grades, or classes for enhanced data-driven decision-making.
