We use the software to see a snapshot of our whole classroom and to see areas where students need to grow. Instead of spending time analyzing and laying out data in spreadsheets like we used to do, the Now What? Tools are there for us, and we can spend more time focusing on small-group instruction instead of losing instructional time.
