The Second Annual Convocation was held on August 10, 2018 at Nationwide Hotel & Conference Center in Lewis Center, Ohio.
OCCS was proud to present NWEA training by, Mr. Lindsay Stoelting, an NWEA trainer. Four 1 hour sessions were offered. Session one was a pre-session for schools new to NWEA. This session taught participants the basics of MAP testing and gave a foundation to build on for the afternoon sessions. The three additional consecutive sessions built on the previous sessions and focused on reports and how to use the data to drive instruction and increase student academic achievement. Participants were provided with the Map Growth Workbook: Applying Reports and Map Growth: Reports Portfolio as resources to take with them and apply at their schools. NWEA created video tutorials on how to use the MAP suite can be found here.
