1 New York State District-wide Growth Goal Setting Process: Student Learning Objectives Webinar 2 (REVISED FEBRUARY 2012)

2 Where We Have Been 2 Webinar 1 focused on the following objectives: Communicate the basic components and required elements of Student Learning Objectives. Understand the roles and responsibilities of the State, District, School, and Educator within the SLO process for growth. Articulate how SLOs fit within the overall Teacher Evaluation System and support improved student outcomes. Identify district next steps to begin implementation of SLOs. Please Note: The Student Learning Objective (SLO) Road Map, Guidance Document, and Webinar 1 are available:

3 Webinar 2 Objectives 3 1.Understand the role Common Core plays in SLOs. 2.Be able to communicate the key messages for SLOs. 3.Know the timeline for 5 key district-level SLO decisions. 4.Have the tools necessary to make the first 3 of their 5 key SLO decisions: Assess and identify district-specific academic priorities and needs. Identify who will have State-provided growth measures and who must have SLOs as “comparable growth measures.” Determine district rules for how specific SLOs will get set. By the end of this webinar, District leaders will…

11 Key Messages for Student Learning Objectives  SLOs name what students need to know and be able to do by the end of the year.  SLOs place student learning at the center of the conversation.  SLOs are a critical part of all great educators’ practice.  SLOs are an opportunity to document the impact educators make with students.

12 Key Messages for SLOs continued…  SLOs provide principals with critical information that can be used to manage performance, differentiate and target professional development, and focus supports for teachers.  The SLO process encourages collaboration within school buildings.  School leaders are accountable for ensuring all teachers have SLOs that will support their district and school goals.

13 Key Messages for SLOs continued … District Goal: by the end of school year, increase the percentage of students who meet the Aspirational Performance Measures, which are indicators of College and Career Readiness, from 35% to 50%. Middle School Goal: by the end of school year, increase the percentage of students who score a proficient on end of course State assessments by at least 10%, as compared to ; increase those scoring advanced by at least 5%. Teacher Goal: by the end of school year, 85% of students will demonstrate growth on the district- developed social studies assessment compared to their prior grade performance. Illustrative Alignment of Annual Goals: District, School, Teacher

14 5 KEY DISTRICT DECISIONS

15 5 District Decisions (recommended by 5/31/2012) 15 Note: These dates are recommended so NTI participants are prepared for their training sessions. 1.Assess and identify district priorities and academic needs. 2.Identify who will have State-provided growth measures and who must have SLOs as “comparable growth measures.” 3.Determine district rules for how specific SLOs will get set. 4.Establish expectations for scoring SLOs and for determining teacher ratings for the growth component. 5.Determine district-wide processes for setting, reviewing, and assessing SLOs in schools. 3/01 4/16 5/31

16 DECISION 1: ASSESS AND IDENTIFY DISTRICT PRIORITIES AND NEEDS

17 Step 1. District Leaders Assess and Identify Priorities and Needs* What are the District’s overall priorities, needs, and long-term goals? HINT: refer to your district strategic plans, and ensure alignment to the Common Core. HINT: remember that principals and teachers will be held accountable to goals aligned with the district’s stated priorities. HINT: the more prescriptive district level goals are, the less variation you will see in (content and rigor of) school/classroom goals. 17 *See Attachment 1 and 2 of Resource 1: “New Paltz Educational Master Plan” and “Batavia City Schools Comprehensive District Education Plan” for two examples of districts whose goals and priorities set them up for learning and success.

18 DECISION 2: WHO NEEDS AN SLO FOR GROWTH MEASUREMENT?

19 THREE TYPES OF TEACHERS Teacher 1: Those who have a State provided growth measure and are not required to have an SLO. Teacher 2: Those who have a State provided growth measure, and yet, are required to have an SLO because less than 50% of their students are covered by the State provided growth measure. Teacher 3: Those who are required to have an SLO and do not have a State provided growth measure. 19

23 DECISION 3: HOW WILL SLOs GET SET?

24 Assessment Options for SLOs: Reference Guide 24 Please see the “Assessment Options for SLOs: Reference Guide” for NYSED’s rules for assessment options for teachers who have SLOs for State Growth

25 Teacher Assessment ScenarioDistrict Decision Points Scenario 1: Teacher’s course ends in a State assessment, but teacher is still required to have an SLO (see Teacher 2 and some Teacher 3 on Slide 19). Scenario 2: Teacher’s course does not end in a State assessment, but is a 6-7 Science or 6-8 Social Studies course. Scenario 3: Teacher’s course does not end in a State or Regent assessment and is not a 6-7 Science or 6-8 Social Studies course. 25 What Assessment Do I Use to Measure Growth in SLOs?

26 What Assessment Do I Use to Measure Growth in SLOs? 26 Teacher Assessment ScenarioDistrict Decision Points Scenario 1: Teacher’s course ends in a State assessment, but teacher is still required to have an SLO (see Teacher 2 and some Teacher 3 on Slide 19). District has no decision to make. Use State assessment (or Regent equivalent) with SLO. Scenario 2: Teacher’s course does not end in a State assessment, but is a 6-7 Science or 6-8 Social Studies course. District has to determine which assessment option they will use with the SLO district-wide for the grade/subject: 1.State approved 3 rd party assessment 2.District, regional or BOCES – developed assessment Scenario 3: Teacher’s course does not end in a State or Regents assessment and is not a 6-7 Science or 6-8 Social Studies course. District has to determine which assessment option they will use with the SLO district-wide for the grade/subject: 1.State approved 3 rd party assessment 2.District, regional or BOCES – developed assessment 3.School- or BOCES-wide, group, or team results based on State assessments See: for the full list of State-approved 3 rd party assessment options.http://usny.nysed.gov/rttt/teachers-leaders/assessments/
