Knowledgehook is inspired by the work of leading educational researchers such as John Hattie, Dylan Wiliam, and Lorna Earl. These ideas follow the principle that one of the best methods for fostering student achievement is for teachers to embed formative assessment into their teaching, identify student needs, and adjust their instruction accordingly.
Knowledgehook not only makes it easy for teachers to check for understanding but also encourages them to use the data in a variety of ways to inform their next steps in instruction.
Knowledgehook’s curriculum experts use local standards and connect Knowledgehook’s Teacher Support Resources to help teachers identify and address potential issues.
Teachers use Knowledgehook as an engaging formative assessment tool in their classroom by assigning individual practice or group quizzes through the system.
Student responses are analyzed to identify potential gaps and Teacher Support Resources are delivered to teachers to help them address issues that their students may have.
Knowledgehook has a strong research foundation that recognizes the common areas of difficulty that affect students, and provides instructional best practices for addressing them.
With Knowledgehook School Premium, teachers will have an effective tool to help them address student gaps and develop their own pedagogical content knowledge along the way.
The Quick Reference Remediation Chart describes typical learning gaps, misconceptions and common errors (i.e. What am I seeing?) and provides teaching tips and strategies for preventing and addressing them (i.e. What can I do?)
The Remediation questions can be assigned to students in order to assess individual students’ specific remediation needs. There is also an accompanying guide with descriptions of why each question has been included (i.e. which specific content it addresses) and important things to observe, as well as a set of answers.
Math Background Documents are organized by pedagogical and mathematical big ideas and are designed to help teachers make the mathematics they are teaching as meaningful as possible for their students. The document will often cover material spanning multiple grades in order to provide you with some perspective on related prior and future learning. A glossary of terms specific to the topic is included.
