Implementation Guidance

Assessing to Inform Webinar Recordings: Putting your data to work for you!

[FastBridge, NWEA, aimsweb Recordings & Materials |  STAR resources also available]

Through hands-on experiences, learn key guidelines and tips for interpreting data and viewing reports at the student, classroom, school, district, and national levels. Learn how to really understand and apply the data to guide instruction and intervention, plan student groupings, etc. See how to use data to facilitate improved educational outcomes for students.

Learning Objectives:

  • Reflect on the purpose of benchmark screening and progress monitoring, as well as the key principles of data analysis and utilization within your school system
  • Access key group benchmark reports and distinguish what reports can predict future outcomes and/or how each can drive timely, standards-based instructional choices
  • Practice using specific benchmark data for program evaluation, as well as individual student support and instruction development

Created and developed by the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction

Kognito is an online, role-playing simulation to help school personnel learn to recognize the signs of distress, use conversations to approach a student and discuss concerns, and, if necessary, refer parents/students to the appropriate resources. The simulations allow school personnel to practice these challenging conversations at their own pace through role-playing with emotionally responsive virtual students.

The Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health Division is offering these simulations available to all North Dakota school personnel at no-cost.


Focused on educator mental health literacy, and informed by and co-developed with educators from across the nation, each Classroom WISE module presents concrete, universal approaches for promoting student mental health and creating safe and supportive classroom environments. The learning series is organized into six 50-minute modules with corresponding learning objectives (listed on next page), and offers evidence-based strategies and skills to engage and support students with mental health concerns in the classroom.

Access to the self-paced learning series, video library, and resource collection is FREE. All are open-source resources.
