Hello! My name is Paula, and I am very excited to serve as a guest author on this site! I am entering my thirteenth year in elementary education. Prior to becoming a curriculum coordinator for an elementary school, I was a Third Grade teacher. As a classroom teacher, I administered the Think Link Learning assessments for several years. The assessments and corresponding reports had a tremendous impact on my classroom instruction. The timely reports allowed me to provide more focused instruction. In this day and age of accountability, it is extremely important to have up-to-date data reflective of state standards in order to provide appropriate whole-group and small-group instruction. Please share your Think Link Learning success stories. I am eager to hear how the assessments have improved student learning and norm and/or criterion-reference results.
