Khan Academy Partnership

Khan Academy / NWEA Joint Press Release Summary

MADERA UNIFIED IS one of four school districts across the nation that will pilot the MAP® Accelerator™ (MAP: Measures of Academic Progress) program created by Khan Academy and Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA). The new partnership between the two organizations called MAP Accelerator, provides a unique classroom tool designed to help teachers deeply integrate personalized learning and assessment to accelerate student learning. MAP Accelerator is being developed jointly by Khan Academy and NWEA to help school districts and teachers easily and effectively differentiate instruction for students with diverse academic needs. The new platform, powered by Khan Academy, helps teachers quickly and easily deliver personalized learning pathways to each student based on MAP Growth results. Teachers are empowered with rich insights to identify which students need extra support to fill gaps and accelerate learning while also maintaining flexibility to implement the tool in the best way to serve their class. MAP Accelerator is being piloted this year for grades 3-8. “We are excited to partner with Khan Academy and NWEA to pilot the MAP Accelerator tool. We are optimistic that this tool will help our teachers deeply integrate personalized learning and assessments to accelerate student learning for all our students,” said Todd Lile, Superintendent. As a computer-adaptive assessment, it adjusts to each student’s responses to provide individual personalized results about what each student knows, and is ready to learn next — whether on, above, or below grade level. Khan Academy’s mastery learning system is a trusted online learning resource for teachers, providing access to high-quality, standards-aligned content that helps to unlock student potential. In a recent study, the Centennial School District near Philadelphia reported that middle school students who spent at least 30 minutes per week doing mastery learning on Khan Academy had 33% higher growth on the MAP Growth mathematics assessment compared to students who used Khan Academy for less than 15 minutes per week.
