Goals: Moving to Measurable Objectives Goal— All students will be proficient in reading Do you mean 100% has to do something before the school can maintenance this goal? How will this be measured—what do students have to do to be proficient?
Measurable Objectives They Help Answer Our Questions About Student Proficiency
SMART Objectives S Specific M Measurable A Achievable R Realistic T Time-oriented
An APP for Measurable Objectives 1) An A ssessment(s) that measures your goal - Outside of system-wide assessments (TNMA, SRI, PSAT), these would be your local assessments from the DoDEA curriculum packages (Reading Street, Every Day math, EnVision Math). In the case of writing use of NWREL’s official 6+1 writing prompts/rubrics would be ideal. 2) A P erformance benchmark - Which includes an End-of-Year mastery/proficiency cut score based on a metric: a median or mean score, Lexile, X % correct, BAS level, etc. Examples: 80% correct on the end of year EnVision math test D or higher on the BAS (Kinder) ‘Proficient ‘or greater Lexile (varies by grade level) 3) A P opulation benchmark - Simply the percentage of students you want to meet or exceed the performance benchmark. Typically based on previous data so a trend can inform what a reasonable percentage should be. When a test is new, a reasonable assumption would be to set this at 75% (the DoDEA default), then adjust it based on the next data collection.
Examples 75% of students will perform at/above Proficient on the SRI. 65% of students will perform at/above 80% correct on the EoY Every Day math assessment. Y OUR DATA COLLECTION FILE AND DATA POC GIVES YOU THE ABILITY TO COLLECT, ANALYZE, AND REPORT ON YOUR SCHOOL ’ S STATUS OF MEETING YOUR OBJECTIVES – ALL YEAR ROUND !
Graphical Analysis Examples Some simple math will tell where you are
Setting Annual Measurable Objectives Many schools have/had goals set that describe raising student achievement by dates set in future school years But how is progress measured on a yearly basis? Although dates set in the future may be necessary, we recommend schools use Annual Measurable Objectives
Annual Measurable Objectives Facilitate Several Activities They provide: schools with yearly objectives that, if met, will result in students raising achievement over the longer period of time the school the starting point for looking at subgroups, grade level/content area performance, classroom data, and student level data
Only School-Level Measurable Objectives? Only a Count? NO! SMART goals can be set for: – subgroups, – grade levels,/content areas, – Classrooms – students This is the starting point for any next steps determined by PLTs/Data Teams/Grade Level Teams, Teachers, etc. After becoming familiar/comfortable with the % of students reaching a certain mastery, consider percentage increases and percentage decreases
Displaying Results The next step to setting measurable objectives is using them when discussing data and determining next steps Data can be displayed: – When telling the school’s story (digital profile) – On websites – School Data Displays – Newsletters – Other
Measurable Objectives Help Us Frame Certain Activities Professional development plans School-wide strategy choice The monitoring of strategy effectiveness The setting of more specific goals within grades/contents – This comes along with setting strategies specific to these goals
