ABOUT DR. BRADSHAW
Dr. Bradshaw has a Ph.D. in Research, Evaluation, Measurement, and Statistics and is a tenured Associate Professor and Program Chair of Quantitative Methodology in the Mary Frances Early College of Education at the University of Georgia. Dr. Bradshaw began her journey of designing a new assessment system that would be helpful for students and teachers, and our educational system as a whole, after completing her Master’s degree in Mathematics Education and certification as a high school mathematics teacher. Her heart as an educator is ever at the forefront of her work as a professor, researcher, and author.
INNOVATIVE ASSESSMENT PILOT APPROVED
Navvy’s new way to approach assessment in schools has been approved by the US Department of Education and Georgia’s State Board of Education as an innovative assessment system being implemented under USED’s Innovative Assessment Demonstration Authority.
Under IADA, the Navvy model will allow data collected in the classroom naturally by using Navvy throughout the year to be summarized and reported at the end of the school year instead of taking a separate state exam. In short, the data needed for accountability is less detailed than the data Navvy will collect as regular classroom practice. Our districts want this model so they can focus all 180 school days on teaching and learning, using Navvy as a key part of guiding instructional interventions for students along the way.
Navvy provides a complete suite of standard-by-standard practice assessments called Quick Checks. Navvy Quick Checks can be given remotely for both prior-grade and on-grade standards, providing a quick way to identify unfinished learning from prior grades or gauge the progress of an on-grade standard.
NAVVY QUICK CHECKS
Students earn a digital micro certification for each standard they show they have learned on a short Navvy Competency Check. Students have multiple opportunities to earn a microcert for each standard throughout the year, and Navvy keeps learning profiles up-to-date on the student’s Learning Map as the student re-assesses. Learning Maps allow for standards-level within- and across-grade progress monitoring of student competencies.
NAVVY COMPETENCY CHECKS
Students earn microcerts for ELA writing and language standards through formative and/or summative Navvy Writing Checks. Students provide an extended response to a writing task, and Navvy’s team of raters provides standard-by-standard competency diagnoses.
