16 HomeBase Use Case #1 HB- 1 Description Narrative Ability for teachers and other education professionals to use classroom, benchmark and state summative assessment data to inform individualized student instruction decisions and other Key Performance Indicators. Data should be accessible through an integrated portal and presented in Dashboard format that allows for deeper analysis through active hotspots and provide recommended resources to improve student instruction.. Districts currently use instructional and assessment systems that are not integrated and cannot be viewed through a single portal. An educator who wants to review a students performance and assign recommended instructional resources will access the HomeBase (IIS) dashboard and view classroom and LEA assessment results as well as NC state testing results. The ability to drill down to the item level for further analysis will enable the teacher to analyze the type of questions on which the student performed well and those on which (s)he struggled, enabling the teacher to focus on test-taking strategies and critical thinking skills in addition to content. Significant dependencies include the ability to pull the assessment data from multiple data sources into the IIS at the item and standard level for analysis and to link the data with student demographic data in the Student Information System (SIS), and accountability data, discipline data to help personalize instruction. Title Instruction and Assessment Data Dashboards Use Case Reference ID CriteriaDescription Actor Classroom teacher, special education teacher, guidance counselor, Principals, district administrators Actions 1.Sign on. 2.Access HomeBase Instructional Dashboard. 3.Review assessment results from multiple data sources that are internal to the HomeBase benchmarking tool or have been upload from LEA formative/benchmark assessment 4.Identify instructional needs of the student and implement action. Change EnabledAll student performance data for a student will be reviewable from a single source. Data RequiredClassroom, district, and state accountability assessment results, student demographic data Systems UsedPowerschool, SchoolNet, TestNav, IEP (if applicable), discipline TimelineJuly 2013 and beyond Dimensions and Degrees of Successn/aGoodGreat Data and content are being used together to personalize learning for students Data is uploaded into HomeBase Data is being viewed by end users in a manner that informs individualizing instruction. Users search data from multiple sources Data linked to appropriate student Users search for data

17 Home Base Use Case #2 Description Narrative LEAs/Charter Schools/Teachers will be able to load content in the resource bank and or share their resources (e.g., through the Home Base Resource Consortium). Curriculum/Instruction and Assessment Resources will be available through one single login and the alignment tags will help to link the resources. TitleContent Owned by LEAs/Charter Schools or Teachers CriteriaDescription ActorTeacher or District/Charter School Staff Actions 1.Teacher or District/Charter School Staff logs on Home Base 2.Teacher or District/Charter School Staff loads resource 3.Teacher or District/Charter School staff aligns and tags resource Change Enabled Resources are easily searchable by keyword, alignment, etc. Curriculum/Instruction and Assessment Resources are linked to assist with differentiation, remediation, and enrichment Data Required Resources will need to be aligned and tagged Systems Used Home Base (including Schoolnet) TimelineJuly 2013 and beyond Dimensions and Degrees of Success n/aGoodGreat Teacher or District. Charter School Staff is sufficiently trained on how to load content in both the resource bank and the assessment item bank Note: District may choose to contract with Pearson for large banks of resources/items Curriculum/Instruction and Assessment content are available via one login Content is aligned and tagged Content appears when searched Instruction content is linked to assessment content Content can be scheduled Content can be assigned to students Use Case Reference ID HB- 2 Districts/Charter Schools/Teachers are creating their own content for use in the classroom. Some content is housed in a content management system while others are housed in LMSs, on websites, in paper form, etc. In some cases the resources may not be tagged in a consistent manner and may not be easily searchable. Curriculum/instruction and assessment resources may not be in the same system. Gaining access to the resources may require one or more passwords.

18 Use Case Reference ID Description Narr ative The ability for LEAs/Charters to import licensed content into Home Base is a feature that allows districts to make local decisions about content offerings and integrate that content into Home Base. Many districts have content that they will want to continue to use and/or will want to adopt new content to enhance existing content in Home Base. Districts will be trained on how to import content that they own into the resource bank of Home Base. However, for content that is licensed like Discovery Education, it may be more efficient to contract directly with Pearson on getting the content in the Districts Resource Bank. Only teachers in the district will be able to access the district licensed content. Title Importing Licensed Content into Home Base CriteriaDescription ActorClassroom teacher or district staff Actions1.Sign on Home Base 2.Search for Resources in the District Bank 3.Find licensed content as well as other resources Change Enabled Content is connected to the assessment results and student data to help with differentiation, remediation, and enrichment Data Required Some content is more easily integrated than others; content showed be aligned and tagged Systems Used SchoolNet, Third-Party Licensed Content TimelineJuly 2013 and beyond Dimensions and Degrees of Success n/aGoodGreat Licensed Content is imported into District Only staff in the district are able to view licensed content Content is connected to assessment data Licensed Content is easily searchable HB- 3 Home Base Use Case #3

19 Use Case Reference ID HB- 4 Description Narrative Educators will be able to import courses from their existing Moodle, Blackboard, or Angel into Home Base. OpenClass offers many functionalities. For example, a user will be able to: single sign on from Home Base which will bring in roster and provisioning information (available in October 2013); integrate with Google Apps for Education; post blogs, share videos, images and links; create group work spaces for class projects and study groups; connect through chat or Skype with students and teacher; and upload a variety of file types into courses, including HTML, PDF, Word, audio and videos from YouTube. Note: OpenClass is a free LMS and can be used immediately. However, it may be most prudent to wait until October 2013 to migrate course information, train select staff and then begin using in select schools in Spring 2013 and phase in additional schools in at the start of the school year. Additional customizations of OpenClass will occur during the school year to enhance the collaboration tools and integration with the other instructional components of Home Base. Title Learning Management System (LMS) Course Migration from Moodle, Blackboard, or Angel CriteriaDescription ActorClassroom teacher or district staff Actions1.Sign on to OpenClass 2.Import courses and begin using OpenClass in a variety of ways Change Enabled LMS functionality will be available through Home Base for courses already created in Blackboard, Angel or Moodle 2.0 (and older versions), or Angel.

20 HB- 5 Description Home Base Use Case #5 Narrative Some educators may choose to continue to use their existing LMS but want to connect to that LMS through Home Base. Districts and charters who wish to connect their existing LMSs to Home Base can contact Pearson and potentially contract for that service. They may also contact the Friday Institute for assistance with Single Sign- On (SSO) connections between systems once the Identity Access Management (IAM) service is available (anticipated in 2014). Title Learning Management System (LMS) Course accessibility through Home Base Use Case Reference ID CriteriaDescription ActorDistrict staff Actions1.Contact Pearson representative 2.Or, contact Friday Institute for help with SSO Change Enabled Ability to have SSO access through Home Base and continue to use existing LMS Systems Used Home Base and Existing LMS TimelineFall 2013 through Fall 2014 Dimensions and Degrees of Success n/ a Goo d Gre at Ability to have SSO access through Home Base and continue to use existing LMS Pearson Support Friday Institute Support

21 HomeBase Use Case #6 HB- 6 Description Narrative HomeBase incorporates native functionality that allows for greater, easier and more accurate data analysis. From the data dashboard, KPIs can be viewed that will allow for district/school comparison on academics/assessments, attendance, discipline, etc. From the KPI dashboards subgroup, grade level, and teacher analysis can be completed and edited from the same set of screens. In addition to the KPI reporting, HomeBase includes a number of out of the box reporting and a report generator that can be used to create reports on a nearly infinite quantity. Districts have been using a variety of proprietary programs and 3 rd party applications to integrate with the old SIS (NCWISE) to fill in functional gaps, generate external reporting, populate data dashboards, and analyze data. The overhead to maintain and administer these tools vary from district to district but can be a substantial drain on resources. With the migration to PowerSchool/HomeBase districts will now have customizable data dashboards that integrate demographic as well as performance data that is reportable, and exportable to a built in Parent Portal. TitleProprietary Reporting Use Case Reference ID CriteriaDescription ActorClassroom teacher, special education teacher, guidance counselor, Principals, student/parent, district administrator, data managers Actions1.Sign on. 2.Access HomeBase Dashboard. 3.Review KPI Dashboard 4.Generate custom report 5.Push report to appropriate audiences 6.Identify and execute on determined needs. Change Enabled Potential to end the management of contracts or systems for district specific programs.
