20 AMOs established based on available data from… Mathematics Reading AMOs established based on available data from… Mathematics Reading Establishing AMOs Revised assessments Revised assessments assessments assessments Will be set based on data from revised assessments 20 AMO were set and now will be revised by the Board of Education

21 Revised Methodology for AMO USED approved the methodology in Virginias application Annual Measurable Objectives were set by subgroups and contained different end points for each subgroup The approved methodology reduced failure over six years but needed to significantly reduce achievement gaps USED requested Virginia revisit the methodology in order to adopt a more aggressive approach to closing the achievement gaps USED approved the methodology in Virginias application Annual Measurable Objectives were set by subgroups and contained different end points for each subgroup The approved methodology reduced failure over six years but needed to significantly reduce achievement gaps USED requested Virginia revisit the methodology in order to adopt a more aggressive approach to closing the achievement gaps 21

22 Proposed Methodology for Establishing AMOs 61% Pass Rate73% Pass Rate Reading and mathematics targets will be calculated based on the percentiles of the tested population with greater gains for lower achieving subgroups. 47% Pass Rate73% Pass Rate 56% Pass Rate73% Pass Rate Example: Math 22

23 Establishing AMOs 23 AMOs are designed to close the achievement gap within six years. 23

24 Reward, Priority, and Focus Schools Recognition will be provided to reward schools Supports and interventions will be provided to priority and focus schools Monitor and support schools that do not meet AMOs 24

25 Schools not identified as priority or focus schools must implement an improvement plan to increase the academic achievement of any subgroup not meeting one or more AMO(s) System of Support: Safeguards 25

26 Instruction and Assessment 26

27 SOL Institutes – FOCUS 2009 Specific SOL changes (content) 2010 Vertical articulation of the SOL and areas of greatest challenge (content and pedagogy) 2011 Process goals (standards) in mathematics 2012 Using formative assessments (performance tasks) to inform instruction 27

28 2012 Mathematics SOL Institutes Focus on formative assessment Focus on process goals through performance tasks Provide modular online professional development for teachers at the division/school level by grade level/subject area teams Are anticipated to be available in November 28

29 Performance Task - Definition An assessment that requires students to synthesize SOL content in a problem-solving setting that encourages communication, reasoning, critical thinking, connections, and use of varied representations.

30 2012 Mathematics SOL Institutes - Purpose The purpose of the 2012 Mathematics SOL Institutes is to provide teachers with online professional development focused on developing and using formative assessment resources to inform instruction. 30

31 The content of the mathematics standards is intended to support the five goals for students Mathematics Standards of Learning 31

32 Five goals…for students to become mathematical problem solvers that communicate mathematically; reason mathematically; make mathematical connections; and use mathematical representations to model and interpret practical situations 32

33 Virginias Process Goals for Students Mathematical Problem Solving Mathematical Communication Mathematical Reasoning Mathematical Connections Mathematical Representations 33

34 Mathematics and Science Partnership Grants Professional development materials created must include a variety of performance-based tasks that require critical thinking and problem solving skills and could be used as formative assessments. 34

35 Mathematics and Science Partnership Grants Each proposal should include a focus on: –the development and use of formative assessments to inform instruction and monitor student understanding and progress; –the vertical progression of and connections between mathematics content within and among grade bands and/or courses; –the importance of the instructional balance between mathematical concepts and related procedures; and –the incorporation of Virginias mathematical process goals for students, included in the 2009 Mathematics Standards of Learning. 35

36 Assessment Announcements ~20 additional items will be added to the SOL Practice Items for each test EOC – by early November Grades 3-8 – anticipated by February 2013 SOL Practice Guides will be updated State-level performance analysis – anticipated by late November (voiceover PPTs) Tool and functionality fixes 36

37 Common Assessment Questions Tool and functionality fixes? Partial credit problems? Released tests? Software to mimic technology-enhanced items? 37

38 Effective Strategies for Success Instructional Support –Curriculum resources links to SOL, CF, and local resources –Professional development content, pedagogy, process –Administrative leadership and support frequent observations and instructional involvement 38

39 Effective Strategies for Success Collaboration on Instruction and Assessment –analysis and discussion about student objectives and instructional/assessment strategies –common assessments –analysis of student work and performance data 39

40 Discussion Reflect on yesterdays discussions –What makes a strategy a high-leverage strategy that will influence change in your division? –Share your favorite strategy (1 minute each) to improve student achievement that you heard yesterday and why/how you think that it will influence change in your division. 40

41 Algebra Readiness Diagnostic Test (ARDT) The ARDT field test begins in mid-November and ends prior to Winter Break. –No reports will be published based on the field test. –Additional students are needed for the field test for grade 8 (students that studied grade 8 content last year) and Algebra I content (students that studied Algebra I last year). –To add students, visit the survey, add numbers to the appropriate fields, and resubmit. –http://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/6bf3g5103bhttp://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/6bf3g5103b 41
