NEW: Student Writing Collection added to OPTIC!

Educators can now use OPTIC to study authentic student work tagged to specific content standards, and to assess grade-level performance and instructional strategies needed to support student growth. The Student Writing Collection spans grades K-12 and includes opinion/argument and informative/explanatory writing. For each sample, educators are prompted to assess alignment to grade-specific writing and language standards from the Massachusetts ELA & Literacy Curriculum Framework, and to propose specific instructional strategies or shifts in response to the student work.
