Atlas allows educators to look through the macro lens at a student's learning experience and build on what students have learned in previous years to prepare them for future classes and achievement.
Using Atlas, curricular information can be assembled and used by curriculum decision makers to:
- Determine what is taught, as it actually occurs in the classroom.
- Understand how students are being taught.
- Make appropriate, immediate modifications to the curriculum.
- Determine "why" certain performance results have been achieved.
Atlas can also allow parents a larger view of what their children are experiencing in the classroom and the requirements needed to excel. It has the capability to enable community leaders and board members to see how schools are planning students' educational careers and what support is needed to ensure success.
