Gear up for end of the year! We recently spoke with a handful of teachers about using Khan Academy to prepare for their upcoming standardized test (the California Standards Test - CST) that their students will be taking in the coming weeks. They are looking to use KA to strengthen procedural fluency for students.
The CST may be a state-based test, but every teacher faces the task of preparing their students for tests. Khan Academy addresses the different needs of each student by filling individual learning gaps and encouraging mastery-based learning. While test prep is a very specific purpose, it too can be personalized, mastery-based and interactive.
We wanted to share the materials from our recent discussion to spread the ideas and examples that teachers have put together. Perhaps this sparks ideas on other ways to use KA with your students.
