SUDDS leadership team travelled to San Antonio this month to present at ISTE 2017! A big thank you to all the attendees for participating in our workshop. For all those who would like to use our presentation slides with your PLC, school, or district, check out the slide deck here.
Meetal Shah, our research assistant, presented at the NCSU Graduate Student Research Symposium on March 23. The presentation summarized Meetal’s study that investigated how middle grades students solved problems that involved the addition and subtraction of fractional magnitudes using an interactive number line (NL) and coordinated the context and the features of the digital tool in doing so.

Dr. Jere Confrey is one of the Plenary speakers for the 2016 Chicago Symposium Series, Excellence in Teaching Mathematics and Science: Research and Practice. She will present a talk on the research foundations of the learning progressions which underlie the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The talk, Learning Progressions and the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics, will be held on Saturday, March 19 at Loyola University Chicago
Garron Gianopulos will share his experience building and calibrating diagnostic assessments for SUDDS as part the talk, Use of Learning Maps in Diagnostic Assessment Development. He will be presenting with Neal Kingston, Angela Broaddus, and Zohan Popovic. In addition to the SUDDS work, two other projects will be discussed, one from the University of Kansas, and one from the University of Washington. The talk will be held on Monday, March 21 at 11:45 AM.
Dr. Jere Confrey is speaking at the Learning Sciences Research Institute on Friday, March 18 at 1:00 PM. She will present a talk on the idea of a Digital Learning System. The talk, Using Learning Maps and Diagnostic Assessments to Scaffold Digital Learning, will describe the development of a DLS and its relation to a design study in which sixth-grade students explored variability.
