You will learn how Liftoff assesses each student in order to identify individual skill gaps and create a unique learning path to get them back up to grade level. You will also learn about the data displayed on the new teacher dashboard, how to create classes, manage student settings, differentiate and assign custom assignments, pull reports to monitor student progress, and download implementation resources. Liftoff integrates with NWEA MAP to eliminate the need for initial diagnostic testing within the platform.
