“Students have something tangible to take with them, no matter when they leave me or how they come in.”
-Layla Schackner, Teacher at Sacramento Academic & Vocational Academy
On average, more than 1.2 million students drop out of high school each year. “Classes aren’t interesting” and “school isn’t relevant’ are often cited as reasons. In fact, 66% of high school students report being “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” in their education.

DATA AND PROGRAM IMPROVEMENT
Using data to adjust program curriculum.
In just two years, a Foods & Nutrition instructor in Utah increased the number of students earning certifications by 56%! How did she do it? “If I want my students to be work-ready, they have to understand the standards. In order to be a master teacher, my job is to follow and teach the standards so that my students will succeed on their Precision Exams.”
Within the Precision Exams by YouScience platform, educators have access to valuable student assessment and program improvement data (which also helps meet the Perkins V standards for program improvement). By reviewing her Proctor Standard Report, Tami was able to identify the areas in which her students were struggling. Utlizing the data, she joined a standards-based curriculum writing team and reorganized the order in which she taught lessons to better help her students remember the content.
