NWEA testing averages for math, reading and language are the highest since we started giving them. Students also spent on average 12 additional minutes taking each exam. 

Advisory continues to be a big hit this year with attendance up for first period, and teachers reporting higher student involvement.
Cell Phone Lockers... use them!

Q. How many times a day do users interact with their phone?

A. People tapped, swiped and clicked a whopping 2,617 times each day, on average.

For the heaviest users—the top 10%—average interactions doubled to 5,427 touches a day. 

Per year, that’s nearly 1 million touches on average—and 2 million for the less restrained among us.

We’re definitely letting our fingers do the walking, and they’re doing marathons. Each tap and swipe feels small and harmless—just a tiny fraction of our brain power and physical effort. But at these volumes, have the interactions become an onerous load?

Phone screen time was 2.42 hours for the average user, and 3.75 hours for the heavy user. That was time spent on everything from typing texts, swiping on Tinder, turning Kindle pages, and scrolling in Facebook.
