1a. Empowered Learner | Math | Grades 3-12
Students take a diagnostic test that is appropriate for their grade level and mathematical discipline (e.g., geometry, pre-algebra, physics, etc.) or topic within a discipline (e.g., number theory, probability, distribution, etc.). Next, students analyze their results, and they identify one or more areas to strengthen. Students then use resources to build their knowledge and skills focused on the areas they identified to strengthen. When ready, students record themselves explaining how to solve problems in the area(s) they identified needing strengthening. Students can send a link of the recording to their teacher, so the link can be posted to a class website.

This instructional idea requires students to set a personalized learning goal based on the results of a diagnostic test. Students then use technology to develop their understanding and skills need to strengthen their skills in the area they identified for their goal, and the recording that students create is a reflection of their growth in that area.
