STATIS in the Classroom
The following 5 step process demonstrates how automation has made it easy for teachers to deliver and manage their instructional program. The 5 steps are delivered in sequence and allow the teacher to use repetitive and systematic processes that delivers and manages the instruction, assessment, diagnosis, and remedial tasks. Please note that although the STATIS videos delivers the initial instruction, it is the teacher who is in total control of what is occurring and in ensuring that students truly learned what was taught to them as shown in the following example of how the STATIS© classroom version operates:
- Teachers introduce the lesson of the day using a learning strategy suggested by Dr. Robert J. Marzano of the Marzano Institute that is designed to heighten a student's interest in the video based lesson supplied within STATIS.
- After the delivery of this 10 to 15 minute live discussion, teachers deliver the video based instructional lesson on the subject. These videos can be viewed on almost every device including laptops, tablets, and cell phones, and on a 24/7 basis
- Upon completion of the video, the teacher conducts a live instructional lesson to ensure each student's understanding of what the video taught to them
- STATIS then delivers a 10 question FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT TEST that it Instantly grades, diagnoses, and delivers a diagnostic assessment report to enable the teacher to deliver "live" real-time, targeted remedial instruction to each student in need of help. Students who pass this formative assessment test move on to step 5 where they are provided access to the next video in the series to view and to prepare for the next instructional session.
- During step 5, teachers simultaneously use the diagnostic report to deliver detailed targeted remediation). This process includes assessment, diagnosis, and remedial process that is repeated by the teacher until every student has demonstrated mastery of the lesson and moves on to study and practice the next lesson in the subject. Over the next few days, each student works independently to prepare in advance for the next lesson in the
During step 4 of this 5 step instructional process described above, the 10 question formative assessment test delivered by STATIS also performs a diagnostic assessment that provides the teacher with everything they need to conduct a remedial session for those students in need of help. This process is very similar to what teachers are now doing, except that we have automated step 4 to provide students with multiple opportunities to correct their mistakes and to retake this assessment test as often as necessary until mastery is demonstrated. all five steps to enable students to have multiple opportunities to correct their own mistakes and to retake the formative assessment test as often as necessary.
AUTOMATED GRADING, DIAGNOSTICS, REMEDIATION, AND REPORTING
Teachers will never have to create a lesson plan or test, nor will they have grade, diagnose, or provide remedial instruction to those students in need of assistance. Because all of these functions have been automated, they can now be repeated multiple times, even during the same instructional period, until students demonstrate their understanding of what was taught to them. Because of its use of automation, STATIS offers many benefits such as the ability to instantly create and deliver pre-post diagnostic assessment, mid-term and end-of-year tests, as well as the ability for teachers to deliver formative, and summative tests through a single mouse "click". When this occurs, student outcomes, diagnostics, and targeted remedial instruction are also instantly available.
INSTANT FEEDBACK OF STUDENT RESULTS
Students can use their hand-held tablets or other devices such as laptops, tablets, and cell phones to access STATIS for multiple purposes. Their use will further eliminate the need for paper, pencils, bubble charts, and scanning devices in every classroom and provide real-time feedback to both teachers and students.
PLANNING - CREATE REVIEW TEST AND RECEIVE REMEDIAL HELP
It is important to know that throughout the instructional process, students are given multiple opportunities to demonstrate mastery of the content and to return to any place in the curriculum to obtain remedial help. Students and their parents can even revisit past years to determine if there were any areas in the curriculum where help was needed but not mastered. By simply clicking on the lesson they wish to revisit, students can instantly receive remedial help. Help is just a few clicks away.
Perhaps one of the most remarkable features of STATIS is its ability to provide adaptive instructional content from the current subject being taught or from other subjects from past years.
For example, if a student is having problems solving an equation during their studies in Algebra I, it may be because they failed to grasp the lesson concerning ORDER OF OPERATIONS that was delivered to them during their Pre Algebra class last year. Through the ADAPTIVE learning module within STATIS, if a student fails a question concerning the solving of a math equation, they will be automatically referred to earlier lessons taught in prior years that may be helpful in understanding how to solve a one or two step equation.
Teachers work hard every day, and STATIS reduces their efforts through its use of automation to eliminate those tasks now being performed manually by them. A teachers who allows STATIS to monitor each student's academic progress and to automatically provide targeted remedial instruction without the teacher's need to intervene will absolutely increase their student's ability to demonstrate mastery of the subject and to excel in it. And, they will report module to easily determine the academic status of each student in their classes with greater certainty and less effort. Teachers can easily validate their own instructional activities and review with their students the precise areas where help is needed.
