Collection Process HQT Data entered by content area instead of by the entire school list of NCLB core content areas teachers. This will allow you to divide the work and complete one content area before moving on to another. Organized: 1-General Education Teachers 2- Special Education Teachers 3- Virtual and other 5 th Digit Teachers Class Count You will record the class count for each content listed.
HQT Data Collection- Class Count Teachers should only be identified for number of periods/blocks in one day. If scheduled with multiple exceptionalities in one class period, a proportional value should be submitted.
Example for Course Update Values Scheduled for: B (6 students) 7010-J (1 student) 7010-R (3 students) **But all three are really reflecting one period in the teacher’s day.** Take a proportion. These three should equal 1 class 7010-B = J = R =0.3 Once class values completed, NO teacher should have greater # of classes than what they teach in one day (periods).
Class Count If you have a class listed under the Self Contained section and also have listings for that teacher under the content areas, list the total number of classes under the Self Contained section and put a 0.0 value for the content areas.
