    So my two cents on this is that I’ve just come from training 8 schools in a large urban district on how to look at Let’s Go Learn assessment data.  The teachers already know from grades 3 to 9 that the current practice of using a pacing guide to cover the required standards is not working.  They see the diverse range of skills in their classes and know that virtually every lesson needs scaffolding in math.  When we looked at the ADAM assessment data, it provided a solid analysis that is allowing these teachers to start down the road of blended learning.  Our conclusion was to start small. Target the really low students and the really high students.  Push these students to alternate lessons, at times, while teaching the group lesson.  Identify smaller groups to pre-teach the main lesson to come as dictated by the district pacing guide.  Use web resources or other supplemental tools like LGL Edge when 2 or 3 computers were present in the classroom.  Khan of course is an option and ADAM is linked to it better than any other tool.  But Khan is not very engaging for the at-risk student so temper your expectations when using it.
