Objectives… Examine the different ways standards can be customized in Atlas to model best practices. Analyze the various assessment methods used in your classroom and discover those employed across your school. Apply the Atlas Reporting Tools to verify a quality, standards-based, taught curriculum. Use the Atlas Reporting Tools to ensure a learning-oriented assessed curriculum.
The Relative Curriculum Taught Diary vs. Projected Captures what happens in the class Shows connection to how the curriculum is being covered Intended Standards Based: –AERO Standards –ACTFL –IB Programmes –TESOL –School- developed –Amalgamatio n of the above Learned Assessments Student learning activities
Standards Management: The “(Re)Define” Phase Careful, deliberate, informed standards change/ decisions 1.Needs Analysis: Assessment of what should be in existence based on external criteria Assessment of what should be in existence based on internal criteria 2.Provide direction: Goals Objectives
Use of descriptors
What is the intended and curriculum at your school? How does the taught curriculum align to it? Is it mandated or developed by the school? Does everybody understand it? Do you communicate to all constituencies? Is it in alignment with your school mission? How do you incorporate character? What about early childhood?
Selecting Standards Adapting Standards DIY Standards Horizontal and Vertical Coherence Standards Management: The “Design” Phase
What process/strategies do you follow to (re) define and design your academic standards? What was the trigger event to adopt your current standards? Who do you involve? Who was involved initially? What is the shelf life of your standards? What is the timing for introducing revisions? How do you go about introducing them in Atlas?
Standards Management: The “Implement” Phase How standards (as the planned curriculum) can be integrated into the: Taught curriculum Assessed curriculum (implications to the “learned curriculum”)
Available Reports in Atlas: Standards Overview Standards Profiling My Standards Quick Reports My Reports Standards Management: The “Analyze/ Evaluate” Phase
What is a 3rd graders assessment experience at the school?
As a school, how many times are students mastering benchmarks through assessment?
How can you get a quick view for what standards and benchmarks have been assessed in science?
What are some questions you have about your standards and benchmarks? Take 5 minutes to compile a list of key questions. See if you translate these questions into queries in Analyze. Standards Profiling Standards Overview Don’t forget to visit the tutorials under Info.
Create some Samples (My Reports) that will be helpful in future conversations. Be prepared to share your samples.
