Common Core Assessment Database for Youth Services Librarians

One of the most overlooked learning resources is the local library. For decades, the library has provided patrons with the ability to access hundreds of documents and texts they would not be able to use otherwise. But the library no longer relies solely on text sources. As part of the technology migration of the 21st century, the local library joins various others in enhancing learning through library learning programs. These resources offer patrons access to hundreds of different questions focused on specific grade levels or content areas.

7 Ways Libraries can Impact Student Learning - Library InfographicOne of these programs, the Lumos StepUp™ Library Program helps patrons in elementary and middle schools hone their math and language arts skills. As schools transition to the new Common Core State Standards curriculum, students may have difficulty in particular areas. Through the Lumos eLearning, each patron can able to access the program with their unique library card ID. They can then create a profile, access a database of questions and lessons, and assess their learning through pre and post tests. This format of e-Learning offers the patron immediate feedback at the end of each session.

The Lumos StepUp™ Library Program may be academically geared towards students in grades 3 through 8; however, local libraries and parents will receive many benefits. The Lumos offers libraries an easy annual subscription and enables monthly usage reports to measure effectiveness. It works as an ideal way to engage youth patrons in learning through their local library. For parents, the Lumos program will provide an avenue to understand students’ strengths and weaknesses and present specific data that parents can use in conversations with schools and teachers.

Lumos StepUp™ connects you to online workbooks and practice tests using a number of devices, including Android phones, iPhones, tablets, and personal computers. The Lumos Online Workbooks are designed to promote year-long learning. It is a simple program that students can securely access using a computer with Internet access. The workbooks consist of hundreds of grade appropriate questions based on the new Common Core State Standards. Students will get instant feedback and can review their answers anytime. Parents and educators can review each student’s answers and progress to reinforce the collaborative partnership’s learning experience.
