6 Part I

7 Primer Activity: Implementation Rubric—Data- Driven Instruction & Assessment Complete the ‘assessment’ rubric individually Share and discuss results with group Think in terms of… Start doing Stop doing Continue doing How does this relate to your 100 Hour and 100 Day Plan?

11 Launching a Data Team What will the data team do? Data Team Goals/Objectives 1. Understand how we will use the data AND what data 2. Make changes based on what the data says 3. Research best practices (slow down the process) 4. Make the data relevant to the classroom teacher, the classroom, and best practice 5. Debunk the perception that more data means more work; demonstrate what ‘they’ will get out of the data

12 Launching a Data Team What roles must the data team utilize to accomplish goals? Data Team Roles & Responsibilities 1. Organizer/task manager 2. Presenter/Communicators 3. Model and demonstrate 4. Interpretation and analysis of data 5. Celebrate/Cheerleader

20 Formative v Summative Assessment

21 Formative v Summative Formative Planned practice Occurs when content is being taught Inform teachers what students do and do not know GET TWO (How is this being used?) Inform teachers about what student are ready to learn next Allow for teachers to inform instruction Summative Measure grade level and/or proficiency End of course (EOC) exams Interim Different intervals throughout the year Measure growth Inform instruction Inform decision-making

22 3 Strategies for Formative Assessment 1. Clarifying, sharing, and understanding learning intentions and criteria for success (great objectives, starters, and closers) Getting the students to really understand what their classroom experience will be and how their success will be measured. 2. Engineering effective classroom discussions, activities, and learning tasks that elicit evidence of learning (lesson design) Developing effective classroom instructional strategies that allow for the measurement of success. 3. Providing feedback that moves learning forward Working with students to provide them the information they need to better understand problems and solutions. Embedded Formative Assessment (William, 2011)

23 Formative Assessment Feedback Comment Only Marking Reduces level of concern Makes ‘work’ about learning Plus, Minus, Equals Allows students to ‘compare’ Focuses on growth

25 Formative Assessment Techniques Two Stars and a Wish Carousel Brainstorming ABCD Cards Basketball Discussions

26 Part IV

28 Practicing with Student Data Review the spreadsheet (handout) Utilize the continuous improvement model Focus on: Prediction Exploration Key Ideas to Start: Label (understand) the headings ‘Cover’ the names Use pencil Use a prediction to ‘make a deeper’ prediction (predict only on the headings) Stay away from the ‘tangent’
