Instructional Improvement System (IIS)
The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is developing an online platform in partnership with Pearson Schoolnet called the Instructional Improvement System (IIS) that will provide educators with a suite of tools designed to improve their practice and their students' achievement. Classroom teachers will have access to their classroom and student data reports, be able to create and distribute assessments (online), and browse the Common Core State Standards and New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards that are aligned with instructional and professional development resources all on the same system. Administrators and central district staff will be able to comment on lesson plans, create professional learning communities, share resources with a group or with individual teachers, and analyze classroom, grade, subject and school- or district-level reports. These will inform strategies to improve instruction at both a micro and macro level. Districts will benefit from receiving a tool that organizes educators' daily instruction, allowing them to analyze their students' performance in order to improve their practice and their students' achievement, while providing their administrators the means to monitor and support their efforts.
