It has saved us an incredible amount of time. We have the data, we have it analyzed almost instantly for us, and then now on our teacher based teams and our PLCs, we’re now able to take those and have those rich conversations that are about, ‘Well what’s next? What can we do as teachers, as instructional leaders, to help make those changes?’…And I tell you, it’s made a world of difference.”
