On September 24, New Classrooms released its report, “The Iceberg Problem: How Assessment and Accountability Policies Cause Learning Gaps in Math to Persist Below the Surface…and What to Do About It.” It examines the issue of unfinished learning in middle school math and proposes solutions to help kids get back on track. I designed this report as a downloadable paper as well as a hardcopy version with a supportive website.

I'm a full-time pixel bully.
I've been getting those little bastards to do what i want (usually to make pretty little digital things) for the past 20 years.
