What makes this a SCHOOL THAT WORKS
Performance-Based Assessment in Math
Instead of doing math problems with no context, students at this school role-play real jobs.
Performance-Based Assessment: Making Math Relevant
In Hampton High's Disaster Relief Mission, math students role-play air traffic controllers and pilots to assess their skills in a performance-based simulation.
Instructional Coaching: Driving Meaningful Tech Integration
With Hampton High's tech instructional coach, teachers have found a confidant, subject-area expert, co-teacher, and PD coordinator at their fingertips, enhancing smart, school-wide tech integration.
Gaining Understanding on What Your Students Know
Quick, ungraded assessments help teachers know what their students understand from the day’s lesson.
Rigorous, Relevant Assessment
Performance-based assessment measures how well students can apply what they know––often in real-world situations.
Making Technology Work
See how a high school integrated technology in teaching with the help of an instructional coach.
Exit Tickets: Checking for Understanding
Whether it's an app or a piece of paper, exit tickets are quick, ungraded assessments of how you're teaching and what students need from you next.
Performance-Based Assessment: Engaging Students in Chemistry
In Hampton High's PBA Chemistry Research Project, students create a model of their compound, produce a video about it, and defend it in a debate.
