Learning Acceleration

Learning acceleration is an ongoing instructional process by which educators engage in formative practices to improve all students’ access to grade-level standards while strategically building in key concepts from the prior grade level students need to master grade-level work. Stakeholders from across the state provided input on ways that LEAs can best:

  • Identify Learning Gaps and Opportunities
  • Provide Supports and Resources to Accelerate Instruction and Personalize Learning
  • Provide Professional Learning to Ensure High Quality Instruction and Engaged Learning

In response, NJDOE created The Learning Acceleration Guide (PDF), aligned to the Road Forward: Self-Assessment which holistically incorporates strategies for identifying learning gaps and opportunities and to provide educators and students with the supports needed to accelerate learning.
