PROCESSES, RESOURCES AND SCHEDULE 8:00 AM – 2:30 PM Lunch – On your own 11 – 12 PM PowerPoint- Discussion Individual and group work Schools sharing best practices One folder for each school
TAKE YOUR LEARNING ONE STEP FURTHER Ideas going around in my mind Ideas that squared with my thinking Ideas I want to learn more about Ideas for connecting my learning
THE WILL TO SUCCEED IS NOTHING WITHOUT THE WILL TO PREPARE.
TO WHAT DEGREE DO YOU BELIEVE… ( AGREE OR DISAGREE?) All kids can learn? All kids are learning at their highest possible levels? All educators can learn? All educators are learning at the highest possible level? Data can target instruction needs? Educators target instructional needs using data? Educators should be held accountable for student growth? We will need the help of colleagues to meet the needs of all kids?
Disagree Agree Directions: Find one or more questions that resonate with you. Then find a colleague and do a 5 minute pair share.
WHAT YOU THINK DETERMINES… what you believe… what you say… what you do… who you are. All affect what our students learn, or do not learn.

WHAT IS THE CURRENT STATUS OF COLLEGE READINESS FOR STUDENTS IN THE STATE ?
2012 10 th graders who took the PLAN We can do better for our students! Student Name
WEIGHING THE PIGS DOESNT MAKE THEM ANY FATTER!!!
THREE WAYS TO GET BETTER FIGURES 1.Distort the figures. 2.Distort the system. Get demonstrated results at the expense of other results. 3.Improve the system. Brian Joiner, Joiner Associates Wherever theres fear, youll get wrong figures. Its what people think that counts. David Langford
WHAT CAN WE DO TO RAISE OUR SCORES? 1.Quality teachers and rigorous, relevant curriculum have the greatest impact. There is no substitute for quality instruction in the classroom. 2.Use data for school improvement and to assist individual students. - Revisiting curriculum and instruction - Integrate targeted ACT prep activities and remediation 3.Appropriate interventions at all 3 tiers 4.Stakeholder involvement ( Students, Parents, admin. Board) ** building a culture focused on College and Career readiness

Student Data Analysis A 4-step process 1.Identify the incorrect answers 2.Determine cause of incorrect response 3. Identify and prioritize improvements 4.Complete T-Chart
SAMPLE: Test Results Item Analysis sheet EXPLORE MATH 04A -STUDENT SCORE REPORT and test booklets Item Analysis for Students STEP ONE: As you review the MATH section questions and answers with your teacher, circle whether your answer was correct or incorrect. This will allow you to focus on the strong items as well as those that may need to be readdressed. NOTE- Look closely at the number of the test item; they are not in order. They are grouped by the skill being measured. Pre-Algebra Student Results Notes 1. B Correct Incorrect 4. G Correct Incorrect 7. A Correct Incorrect Algebra Student Results Notes 5. A Correct Incorrect STEP TWO: Look carefully at the question and try to decide what caused you to select the wrong answer and make notes in the area provided. Is it a content problem (something that you have not yet learned or mastered)? Is it the question type (perhaps you are unfamiliar with the way the question is worded or how the information is presented)? Is it a testing issue (did the you get tired of testing or run out of time or just make a simple mistake)? STEP THREE: You now have a more clear indication of the areas that you may need to work on after completing steps one and two. On the back of your student score report there are suggestions of things that you can work on if you have weaknesses in particular areas. Put check marks next to the suggestions which would help you be prepared for the ACT next school year. STEP FOUR: Complete the strength and weakness T-chart and the reflection paragraph based on the information you have gathered from steps one, two and three. This will help you process your areas of strength and weakness and develop an action plan for improvement. Step 1 Step 2
91 Using Your Plan Results Your Skills Step 3 – Check improvements
Students keep this document in their portfolio and share with parents during conferences or parent meeting. Current math score = _____ Growth score goal for PLAN/ACT = _____ Career and College interests - Step 4
USING THE T- CHARTS Teachers use these responses to assist with differentiation in the classroom. Share with parents during conferences or parent informational meeting.
ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS: 1.How much growth in academic achievement typically occurs during high school? 2.Can growth be accelerated so that more students are ready for college and career when they graduate from high school? 3.Do growth rates differ depending on the degree to which students are on target to becoming college and career ready?
AVERAGE GROWTH BETWEEN EIGHTH AND TWELFTH GRADES Source: ACT – Issues In College Readiness, How Much Growth toward College Readiness is Reasonable to Expect in High School?, 2009
AVERAGE GROWTH IN ACHIEVEMENT BETWEEN EIGHTH AND TWELFTH GRADES, BY DEGREE OF COLLEGE READINESS ENGLISH
CHART SUMMARY Groups of students who were on target in 8 th grade were the only students who stayed on target in 10 th grade and went on to become ready for college level work by high school graduation.
SETTING CHALLENGING – YET REASONABLE – INDIVIDUAL STUDENT GROWTH GOALS ACT RECOMMENDATION Goal for students off target– On successive tests, reduce by ½ the difference between the students score on a given subject and the corresponding College Readiness Benchmark. Example – Explore Reading student score = 11 ( 4 pts below benchmark of 15) PLAN Benchmark for English = 17 4/2 = 2 17 – 2 = 15 therefore the growth goal for this student is to get a 15 on the PLAN reading test.
ACT RECOMMENDATION FOR GROWTH GOALS Goal for students nearly on target in 8 th grade – Meet benchmarks on the PLAN and exceed benchmarks on ACT. Goal for students on target at 8thgrade – Exceed benchmark scores on PLAN and ACT by 2 – 3 pts. or more OR have students focus on the post secondary goals EXPLORE PLAN ACT (MSU) 19 22 25
ITEM RESPONSE - WHAT IT SHOWS US: Percentage who selected the correct and incorrect response for each question. Average percentage who responded correctly in each content area. Reference group results to show comparison.
ITEM ANALYSIS BY TEACHERS/DEPARTMENTS- TODAYS WORK Goal: Analyze student data to inform strengths and weaknesses in curriculum and instruction. 4 Steps: 1.Complete the analysis worksheet for the reading test. 2.Create Strengths and Weaknesses charts. (B.O.B.s & W.O.W.s) 3.Complete Content Expectations Chart 4.Complete School Improvement Planning Template
ITEM ANALYSIS BY TEACHERS STEP 1 – COMPLETE THE ITEM ANALYSIS WORKSHEET. DEPARTMENT - Look at the test booklets and the actual items. Then look at this years Item Response data, and considering the last three years data ( if available) determine the appropriate percentage to isolate items which are Strengths and Weaknesses. At what % will you consider the items to be a curriculum and/or instructional Strength and Weakness? INDIVIDUALLY - Complete the worksheet notes as you look over the test booklet. Then discuss as a department: Why do you think your students did well on the strengths items? Why do you think your students did not do well on the weakness items?
ITEM RESPONSE SUMMARY REPORT CCRW Manual p. 94
Math: PLAN Test Results Item Analysis for Staff STEP ONE: As you review the Math section questions and answers, if the students have an _____% or higher on an item, circle strength and if the students have a _____ % or less on an item, circle weakness. This will allow us to focus on very strong items and those that we need to readdress. INDIVIDUALLY make any necessary notes that you notice about each type of question (content issue, question type or testing issue). Pre- Algebra > 80% < 60% Notes 1. AF Strength Weakness 11. BG Strength Weakness 21. AF Strength Weakness 25. DJ Strength Weakness 32. BG Strength Weakness 37. BG Strength Weakness Elementary Algebra > 80% < 60% Notes 7. CH Strength Weakness 12 AF Strength Weakness 14. CH Strength Weakness 16. BG Strength Weakness 24. AF Strength Weakness 27. DJ Strength Weakness 29. AF Strength Weakness Geometry > 80% < 60% Notes 2. CH Strength Weakness 4. D J Strength Weakness 5. AF Strength Weakness 10. BG Strength Weakness 17. DJ Strength Weakness
STEP 2 – CUT STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES ITEMS AND PASTE TO CHART PAPER College Readiness Standard: Math - Expressions, Equations, and Inequalities (XEI): 601 (28-32) – Manipulate expressions and equations
MATH DEPARTMENT - 2 CHARTS StrengthsWeaknesses Calculating the average, given frequency counts of all the data values Recognizing equivalent fractions and fractions in lowest terms Items 1,5,22 Items 3,9, 18, 27 Items 4,13, 18, 23 Order of operations
STEP 3 – AS A DEPARTMENT, COMPLETE THE CONTENT EXPECTATION CHART. 1.Content of weaknesses WHAT 2.Essential Learning Skills using ACT CRS WHAT 3.Chapter, section, unit taught (SKIP) WHERE 4.Test taking concerns WHY 5.Instructional strategies to implement HOW The true value is in the process not the product.
Please focus on GOOD instruction when planning for the Instructional Strategies to Implement piece. Will the students be engaged? What toolbox strategies will be most effective? Do I need to differentiate instruction? Are there other strategies that can be used which are not in the toolbox? WHAT IS GOOD INSTRUCTION? Step #3
Building coherence between MS and HS curriculum

5. Which statement best explains the difference in the average yearly temperature range for Walvis Bay & Gaborone? a. Walvis Bay is farther inland which heats up and cools down faster than coastal cities. b. Gaborone is located farther from the equator and receives less solar energy from the sun. c. Gaborone is located closer to the equator and receives more solar energy from the sun. d. Walvis is closer to the ocean which keeps the temperatures fairly consistent throughout the year. Use the diagrams below to answer questions 5-8. On the left is a climograph for southern Africa, the right is a map showing the direction ocean currents move on the east and west coast of the country. Southern Africa is in the southern hemisphere, so the warmer regions should be in the north and cooler regions should be farther south. Social Studies Inferential (Book/Brain) Reading Charts Back
POST TEST PARENT MEETING ( AGENDA) During the parent session we will: Review basic fundamentals of the Explore, Plan and ACT/MME assessments Hand out and explain the various components of the Student Score Report Identify how Explore and Plan results can help students prepare for the ACT Have students share T- charts with parents
SECTION V – SUPPLEMENTAL LOCAL ITEMS Please indicate how much you agree or disagree with each of the following statements: (a)Strongly agree (b)Agree (c)Disagree (d)Strongly disagree (e)Not sure 1.I get the support I need from my teachers. 2.I usually feel nervous/stressed/anxious about test taking. 3.The classes at my school are interesting and challenging. 4.I learn a lot from working in groups. 5.The classes I am taking are properly preparing me for life beyond high school. 6.I know where to get help when I am struggling in school. 7.I have a career and/or college plan after high school.
POSSIBLE INTERVENTIONS District Initiative – Pyramid of intervention training for staff. District Interventions for Students – Summer programs, universal screening Building Interventions – Academic Center support, Blended Service model, Math Lab, Reading Lab, Before/ After school academic support and Title 1 support.
CONCLUSION Use all ACT data reports as one source to measure student growth. Involve students, parents and staff in the data analysis Much of the ACT is middle school content Student who are on target tend to stay that way. Students who are off target need interventions before and throughout high school Setting reasonable, yet challenging, growth goals for all students is one way of helping them stay on track
EXPLORE, PLAN AND ACT ACTION PLANNING 1.Who will take new information about preparing for EXPLORE/PLAN/ACT back to your building/ 2.Who will present the new information? 3.Have you created a building-wide schedule for practice tests? 4.Who will coordinate the schedule? Organize materials? 5.Do we have a literacy across the curriculum focus in your building? 6.If not, who would initiate implementation of a school-wide literacy focus? 7.Do you have interventions in place for struggling readers?
