What makes this a SCHOOL THAT WORKS
Performance-Based Assessment: Making Math Relevant
In Hampton High's Disaster Relief Mission, math students role-play air traffic controllers and pilots to assess their skills in a performance-based simulation.
Performance-Based Assessment in Math
Instead of doing math problems with no context, students at this school role-play real jobs.
Instructional Coaching: Driving Meaningful Tech Integration
With Hampton High's tech instructional coach, teachers have found a confidant, subject-area expert, co-teacher, and PD coordinator at their fingertips, enhancing smart, school-wide tech integration.
Making Technology Work

Performance-Based Assessment: Engaging Students in Chemistry
In Hampton High's PBA Chemistry Research Project, students create a model of their compound, produce a video about it, and defend it in a debate.
Rigorous, Relevant Assessment
Performance-based assessment measures how well students can apply what they know––often in real-world situations.
Exit Tickets: Checking for Understanding
Whether it's an app or a piece of paper, exit tickets are quick, ungraded assessments of how you're teaching and what students need from you next.
Gaining Understanding of What Your Students Know
Quick, ungraded assessments help teachers know what their students understand from the day’s lesson.
