1 Biology Content and Pacing (Q4) Kirk Nieveen Curriculum Support Specialist Jason Jackson Science Department Chair, Miami Springs SHS

2 Agenda  Welcome and Updates  Data Analysis - Thinkgate: Just the basics Please  How to use your data for instruction  Developing intervention and remediation plans  Discovery Education  A quick tour  Getting the most out of District resources  Common Core State Standards  Comprehension Instructional Sequence (CIS)  Claim-Evidence-Reasoning  Argument Driven Inquiry Reflection

3 Session Outcomes Participants will be able to: –Locate, manipulate, and utilize Thinkgate data to improve instruction –Locate and utilize District Science Resources Department of Mathematics and Science

4 Norms M ake sure to be kind to the presenters and give them your full attention, and please be on time D on’t be afraid to ask and share, we are all life-long learners C are for your profession and be kind to others P lease remember we are guests at Miami SHS S ilence your cell phones and turn off your gaming devices Department of Mathematics and Science

5 Welcome and Announcements Biology Winter Interim and Thinkgate Login :

6 Year at a Glance

7 HOW DO YOU LOG IN? WEBSITE: Username: Employee # Password: MiamiDade2013  You will reset your password once logged in. 7 Department of Mathematics and Science

8 HOME SCREEN: CLASSES (TEACHERS) Period Boxes provides a separate box for each period tabs in bottom will display the class roster, assigned teachers, and identification (course codes) Must select class link to display details about assessments TEACHERNAME Department of Mathematics and Science 8

9 HOME SCREEN: PROFILE (TEACHERS) provides teacher identification information reset password link circle graph of students by periods search for students by last name TEACHER NAME Department of Mathematics and Science 9

10 HOME SCREEN: PLANNING (TEACHERS) provides link of standards specific to subject or select from drop down menu other subjects drop down menu for NGSSS (Next Generation Sunshine State Standards) or CCNGSS (Common Core Next Generation Sunshine State Standards) Provides the standards contents for benchmark selected TEACHER NAME Department of Mathematics and Science 10

11 HOME SCREEN: ASSESSMENT (TEACHERS) provides an overview of assessments  district & classroom click on space ship icon next to assessment name to analyze data Items, Images, Addendums, Rubrics  To be determined what it is used for TEACHER NAME Department of Mathematics and Science 11

12 HOME SCREEN: REPORTING (TEACHERS) provides a list and % proficient of assessments  state, district & classroom (tabs) Must click on EXPAND ICON to create reports and analyze data by benchmarks TEACHER NAME Department of Mathematics and Science 12

13 EXPAND ICON: RESULTS ANALYSIS REPORTS Select the criteria that you want to include in your data analysis Suggestions  Grade  Subject  curriculum Must click search to finalize your criteria choices If add demographic criteria can analyze data by gender and ethnic groups TEACHER NAME Department of Mathematics and Science 13

14 RESULTS ANALYSIS Provides district proficiency percentages colored coded for easier interpretation Provides an overview of the student performance for the district, school, teacher and specific periods or class. Shows specific data of last data update. You have three options for student assessment results (see next slide) 2 1 TEACHER NAME 3 Department of Mathematics and Science 14

15 STUDENT ASSESSMENT RESULTS BY CLASS OPTION 1: Click on arrow next to period Provides overall student performance, color coded based on district proficiency % (see below) OPTION 2: Click on note pad icon Provides a pop up screen with different report options (next slide) TEACHER NAME Student names Department of Mathematics and Science 15

16 STUDENT ASSESSMENT RESULTS BY CLASS Department of Mathematics and Science OPTION 3: Click on score next to class. It will open a pop up screen with Report Selection shown below. (Details on next slide) 1 2

17 REPORT SELECTION: OPTION 3 (Available Reports) Administered Test Not Taken students At Risks Distractor Analysis Item Analysis Mastery Proficiency Report Progress Report Department of Mathematics and Science Report Card by Students Score Analysis Report Standard Analysis Subgroups by Standards Test Summary

18 REPORT SELECTION: AT RISK (STANDARDS BY STUDENT) This report list individual students and the standards they did not master. Can be used for remediation. Department of Mathematics and Science Can be printed or exported into word

19 REPORT SELECTION: AT RISK Standards by Test, Student Provides students overall performance on assessment and the number and description of benchmarks that are of concern for each student in the selected period based on selected assessment Department of Mathematics and Science 19

20 REPORT SELECTION: AT RISK (various reports are available) Students by Standard report provides list of standards that are of concern and lists students who had low performance on each standard. For Fall IA, teachers should only focus on standards addressed in Quarter 1. It is a great tool for intervention and differentiated instruction Department of Mathematics and Science Students

21 REPORT SELECTION: AT RISK Subgroups by Standard Provides % proficiency on lowest performing benchmarks by the following subgroups: Female, Male, Black, White Hispanic, ED, SWD and LEP. Also useful for SIP report. Department of Mathematics and Science Can be printed or exported into word

22 REPORT SELECTION: SUBGROUP BY STANDARD This report provides scores by standards for each subgroup Department of Mathematics and Science

23 REPORT SELECTION: Distractor Analysis: Has option to hide some selection criteria (see row 1). You can organize incorrect answers by grouping them (row 2) (Incorrect answers in red) Department of Mathematics and Science

24 ITEM ANALYSIS REPORT : Compares class performance to school and district performance Department of Mathematics and Science

25 REPORT SELECTION: MASTERY Students by Standard Report provides the names and scores of the students that have mastered the tested benchmarks. Department of Mathematics and Science

26 REPORT SELECTION: PROFICIENCY REPORT Provides class data based on proficiency levels determined by district (color coded: Insufficient, Limited and Satisfactory) Can be printed or exported into excel

45 The “Why” behind Claim, Evidence, Reasoning (Conclusion Writing) In 2009, NAEP administered TWO types of innovative science assessments that invited students to put their science knowledge into practice: –Hands-on tasks (HOTs) –Interactive computer tasks (ICTs) How Did US Students Perform? Students Able to Perform Simulated Investigations, Challenged to Explain Conclusions
