1 Using Student Growth Data to Improve Teaching and Learning Mark Howard, Director Research, Evaluation and Assessment September 2013

2 This Presentation IS Using Student Growth (VAM) Data to improve instructional programs IS NOT VAM Scores or ratings used for teacher, principal or assistant principal evaluations

3 GROWTH VS. PROFICIENCY

4 What is Student Growth? How much academic progress students are making by measuring growth between two points in time Student growth indicates the amount of growth a student made in a testing subject over the course of one year, relative to their academic peers

5 A More Complete Picture of Student Learning Growth (Progress) Measure of student academic progress between two points in time Proficiency (Status) Measure of student performance at one point in time &

6 A More Complete Picture of Student Learning Growth > Compare student to own prior performance > Progress between points > Critical to student success Proficiency > Compare student to a standard > Performance at a point in time > Critical to postsecondary opportunity &

7 Growth & Proficiency Understanding the Difference Proficiency Growth

8 Growth & Learning Gains Understanding the Difference Level Proficiency Learning Gain

9 VALUE-ADDED MODEL

10 What is the Value-Added Model of Student Learning Growth? The difference between Actual Test Score and Expected Test Score The difference between Actual Test Score and Expected Test Score Pre-Test YEAR 1 Post-Test YEAR 2 Starting student scale score Expected scale score based on comparison of similar scoring students Actual student scale score VALUE-ADDEDVALUE-ADDED

11 How is the Expected Score Determined? FY14 – Grade 6 FY13 - Grade Expected Score 236 Expected Score 236 Prior Year 229 Average Score of Similar Students Year’s Worth of Growth

12 SCATTERPLOTS

13 Teacher VAM Scatterplot X axis EXPECTED Score EXPECTED SCALE SCORE ACTUAL SCALE SCORE Above the Line: Student Scored Above Expected Above the Line: Student Scored Above Expected Below the Line: Student Scored Below Expected Below the Line: Student Scored Below Expected Diagonal Line: Achieving Expected Score Diagonal Line: Achieving Expected Score Y axis ACTUAL Score

14 Teacher VAM Scatterplot EXPECTED SCALE SCORE ACTUAL SCALE SCORE Jared EXP: 205 ACT: 210 Sylvia EXP: 205 ACT: 197

15 Teacher VAM Scatterplot EXPECTED SCALE SCORE

16 Teacher VAM Scatterplot EXPECTED SCALE SCORE

17 Teacher VAM Scatterplot Proficiency Bar EXPECTED SCALE SCORE

18 Example 1 More Students Above the Line Than Below the Line Most Students Exceeded Expected Score Above Average Growth Above Average Growth EXPECTED SCALE SCORE

19 Example 2 More Students Below the Line Than Above the Line Most Students Were Below Expected Score Below Average Growth Below Average Growth EXPECTED SCALE SCORE

20 Example 3 Possibly Refocus Instruction Highest Students are mostly Above the Line Lowest Students are mostly Below the Line EXPECTED SCALE SCORE

21 Example 4 Lowest Students are mostly Above the Line Possibly Refocus Instruction Highest Students are mostly Below the Line EXPECTED SCALE SCORE

22 STUDENT ROSTERS

23 Sample Teacher Roster Subject Area (Read, Math, Alg) Subject Area (Read, Math, Alg) LAST FIRST Sample School Sample Teacher Same Students as on Scatterplot Grade Level FCAT Scale Score Previous Year FCAT Scale Score Previous Year FCAT Scale Score Current year FCAT Scale Score Current year Predicted Current Year Score Predicted Current Year Score Difference Between Actual Score and Predicted Did This Student Meet the Expected Score? SAR gain (for reference)
