“Jesús Camacho-Morles came to the attention of McKinnon Secondary College as part of our involvement with the University of Melbourne Network of Schools (UMNOS) program. The introduction of his learning growth estimator measuring student growth gave our school invaluable data and understanding of individual and cohort student progress in NAPLAN and PAT testing. We subsequently engaged Jesus to look at our data to better help us identify each student’s point of need on the learning continuum. In this regard, he has been instrumental in developing interactive learning tools that support us as educations. Of particular benefit has been the student dashboard. which brings together key indicators of academic, emotional, and engagement progress.

Jesus has also helped each faculty develop meaningful rubrics which support assessment for learning. With his background working with such as luminaries as Professor John Hattie and Professor Patrick Griffin, Jesus has provided us with an invaluable link to cutting edge pedagogical research. Our association with Analytics for Schools has helped McKinnon Secondary College identify further learning opportunities for our students, and with his support and guidance, we are confident in our dedicated journey towards continuous improvement.”
