Oak Hill Moves Towards Personalization

In its quest to personalize instruction for its students, Oak Hill Academy has instituted for its 5-8 grades a digitalized program entitled “Teach to One”. This tool called “Roadmaps” enables students to progress on a precise tailored learning path towards grade-level math proficiency and beyond.

          After taking a diagnostic assessment, each student receives a comprehensive set of personalized pre-, on-, and post- grade math skills they must master in order to achieve proficiency at their current or future grade level.  The skills range from those typically taught as early as the 2nd grade to those taught in algebra.  By focusing on each student’s strengths and needs, learning is accelerated to get back on track or even get ahead.

          Roadmaps features engaging, high-quality lessons from many leading providers, including those who have earned the highest rating in Ed Reports.  Students have multiple lesson options to choose from when preparing to learn a new skill.

          Administrators, teachers, and families can easily understand exactly where each student should focus. The pre-grade to post-grade skills are clearly laid out in the student’s path to grade-level success and college-and-career readiness.  Students can also track their own progress by accessing an overview of each skill on their roadmap.

          Once students feel they have mastered a new skill, they can take an on-demand assessment in order to demonstrate their knowledge.  State-of-the-art algorithms and proven psychometric techniques enable each student’s roadmap to be continually updated based on their success.

          The school feels that this technology, coupled with a master teacher, will be able to pinpoint specific skills each student must achieve to reach proficiency and beyond.  Oak Hill’s partnership with the “Roadmaps” platform will put each student on a pathway to personal improvement, successful mastery, and academic confidence.
