Doug Wells serves Illuminate Education districts in the areas of assessment development and detailed data analysis in supporting the development of comprehensive student achievement systems to maximize student learning and outcomes. Before coming to Illuminate Education, Doug was a high school Biology teacher for nine years and then served as a district Director of Assessment and Accountability for eight years. That experience allowed him to develop a comprehensive student achievement system at the District, Site Leader, and Classroom levels.

Illuminate Professional Development around a Comprehensive Student Achievement System has provided HBCSD with a valuable resource to help assess student learning and ensure that teachers have data to inform their instructional planning and delivery of rigorous content for students. INSPECT item bank resources are used to create district benchmark assessments and also to build formative assessments by grade level PLC teams across all grade levels. Our students are demonstrating high levels of achievement on SBA and we attribute strong components of that success to the use of assessments developed using support from Illuminate’s Comprehensive Student Achievement System services and the  INSPECT Item Bank.
