eDoctrina in Practice: Case Study Published by District Administration MagazineRecently District Administration magazine has published a case study about the K-12 planning, assessment and reporting software tool eDoctrina. This instructive article is entitled “Charter School for Applied Technologies: In-house Resources Help Raise Student Performance at Low-Income School” and written by Ariana Rawls Fine.

The article explains how eDoctrina is used at the largest K12 charter school in New York. The author describes in detail what aims and teaching approaches are behind eDoctrina, and what results are achieved. In particular, she emphasizes that the main strategy is “targeted, specific and timely interventions” and that during a year of eDoctrina implementation the math state assessment scores in Charter School for Applied Technologies saw an increase of 32 percent.

District Administration magazine, March 2015: “In recognition of the innovation and success of this initiative, Charter School for Applied Technologies has been named a District of Distinction by District Administration.”

Now eDoctrina is being used by 282 districts in 9 states of the USA.

Focus: Online Assessments for Foreign Language Students

“I am so happy to have eDoctrina for online assessments! In June of 2014, I created my 8th grade proficiency exam in eDoctrina. It was a lot of work to input everything, but it saved me a lot of time after the test was administered. That was the first time that I have ever had all of my exams graded by the end of the day that they were given. This program allowed me to add my recorded voice for the listening section and also the freedom to control how many times the students could listen to the passage. By copying the exam I was able to also quickly create a modified version of the exam for any student that was allowed accommodations, such as additional time listening to a passage. Pictures for the picture choice section were able to be in color and there was no concern about students not being able to tell what a picture was due to poor photocopying.”

At the DATAG Conference 2014 eDoctrina’s Leah Kingston presented the interactive session “Formative Assessment”: “Collecting assessment data can be easy. Whether it’s an exit ticket, quiz or formative assessment there are many ways to collect data using eDoctrina that are both teacher and student-friendly. This interactive session allows users to see how collecting ‘on the spot’ data using a document camera or iPad can be quick and easy. Best of all, data reports are available immediately for analysis.”

Leah Kingston is a former elementary school teacher who’s passionate about helping educators learn how to use eDoctrina to help manage the overwhelming process of collecting and analyzing data. Her goal is always to make sure educators save time – and eDoctrina can be the solution.

Leah Kingston is a gifted gifted lecturer whose trainings are very impressive and useful for attendees:

“I’ve been to a lot of conferences, and to be honest, some of them are major fails. You probably get this a lot, but your training was insightful, honest, very informative, and fun. Your pacing as totally appropriate. I really liked the process of watching then doing and a little bit of both at the same time. The mini assignments really reinforced what was instructed. Your commentary of dos, don’ts, and little nuances about the program were extremely helpful, because while the guides are easy to learn from, the ‘tricks’ are what takes the program to a new level for me. The reviews were super important because it made me become cognitively aware of what I know and have the ability to answer about the program with my colleagues. I knew the training was awesome when all of my questions were answered within the first 2 hours!”
