Home Base IIS Schoolnet Classrooms Introduction Donna Albaugh, Mary Keel, Robin Loflin Smith
Learning Goals At the end of this workshop, you will be familiar with the following: Logging in and basic navigation of Home Base Tracking the instructional progress of classes and students by standard and using diagnostic assessment data from multiple sources to analyze students achievement Locating available instructional materials Creating lesson plans and scheduling on a planner Strategies for turnaround training
Student Data on the Home Page -Reflects current students -Select desired class -View roster and recent test results
What information is available about each student?
Try It Out Practice Find a student Create a PDF of the profile If available, compare classroom grade and test scores for a subject Check for Understanding What are two ways to get to a student profile? What kinds of data are available?
Try It Out Practice Access each type of report - Change view by options Discussion How can report data impact instruction? What is the purpose of each report? What kinds of questions could each report answer?
What materials are available to support instruction?
Standards Search Search for standards that contain a keyword Locate all materials aligned to a standard Schedule standards on the lesson planner Be sure to search appropriate level of the standards hierarchy
My Materials A combination of the materials that you created and those you saved from a materials search
Try it Out Practice Locate a lesson and a resource and save to My Materials Check for understanding What are two ways a material gets into My Materials? What materials are available for the subjects you teach?
Create a Resource/Lesson You can only use one format for each lesson
Attach Resources to a Lesson Attach support materials to lessons Use the same resource for multiple lessons

Practice Scenarios Which students have perfect attendance so far this year? On what standard/skill is your class doing the best? The worst? Do you see improvement from one test to the next? What instructional materials are available to help students with the skills they are having trouble mastering? Which benchmark question did your students do collectively better or worse than the district as a whole? Which students are in an LEP (or ELL/ESL) program? Which students perform well in math, but not reading? Looking at the data, do you think that benchmark scores are good predictors of standardized test results?
