1 District Testing Report: Analyzing The Data Danielle M. Shanley Director of Curriculum and Instruction October 17, 2011 New Milford School District

2 The State of NJ requires LEAs to publically present test data, with attention to each subgroup. Overview of the 2011 district test results on New Jersey standardized tests, with some historical analysis. Comparison of New Milford schools to State averages and districts in similar District Factor Groupings (DFG), a measure of average household income and educational level, ranked A – I, with A being most impoverished and I being most affluent. New Milford’s DFG is an “FG” grouping. Other Bergen County FGs include: Edgewater, Fair Lawn, Hasbrouck Heights, Fort Lee, Maywood, Midland Park, Rutherford and Woodridge.

4  Subgroup = One of 40 groups identified within the whole group tested.  A subgroup must have 30 students (n=30) in it to be measured for AYP.  Common sub groups are Special Education, Limited English Proficient, Impoverished, Ethnic, Racial groups etc.  State changed benchmark scores for making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)  Anticipating changed process of evaluation, with the focus shifting to growth of “cohorts” instead of year to year growth of different groups of students.

Socratic Seminar and DBQ Study in Social Studies New Science Curriculum K-12 Study Island Junior Courses Middle School Schedule Modifications – Classrooms Without Walls 25 New Courses offered at the HS and MS

46 RESEARCH BASED reading, writing, math and science programs EFFECTIVE and meaningful professional development for all teachers Consistency of programs, materials and teacher training Development of common benchmark assessments

47 NEVER lose sight of authentic assessments, opportunities for classrooms without walls and the learning that takes place in the non-tested areas: Arts and Music, Global Studies, World Language, Technology, Engineering, Business, Future Educators, Experiential and Service Learning, and Civics.

53 NCLB and Making Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP)

54 No Child Left Behind Act 2001 Signed into law on January 8, 2002 Bi-partisan initiative to increase student achievement Developed by politicians, not teachers NCLB represented some of the most significant changes to the Elementary and Secondary Schools Act (ESEA) since its enactment in 1965 NCLB contains four major education reforms: ► Increased focus on accountability ► Increased flexibility and local control ► Expanded educational options for parents, and ► Focus on research-based methods and practices

55 ESEA is up for reauthorization, but the “suggested improvements” are still focused purely on mathematics and language arts achievement measured by standardized tests, with no recognition of, attention to or funding for the other critical content areas. NCLB UPDATES

56 Goal:All students will be assessed 95% of each student group must participate in the assessment process Students enrolled for <1 year will not be included in the accountability process Students with severe disabilities must be assessed utilizing the APA Out-of-district students are included in their home schools’ accountability (we don’t educate these children) LEP students must also be assessed Guidelines for Assessing AYP

57 Student progress is also assessed by student sub-groups: Ethnicity: American Indian, Asian, Black, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, White, Other Income: Economically Disadvantaged/Non- Economically Disadvantaged LEP: Limited English Proficient Special Education

58 How to “MAKE” AYP 1.Meet the participation expectation of 95% AND 2. Meet the Proficiency Benchmarks in each of the subgroup, in each of the content areas (40 out of 40 sub categories in total) OR 3. Meet Calculations for Safe Harbor = 10% reduction in Partial Proficiency from the prior year

66 ALL FOUR SCHOOLS IN New Milford Made AYP But we will not become complacent!

67 S.M.A.R.T. Goals for all schools & PLCs focused on Learning and Improved professional practices

68  Vertical articulation and review of data with teachers and administration  Analysis of test data by subgroup, with recommendations and follow through on individual instructional decisions  Systematic staff development to increase teachers’ understanding of test format and response construction  District-wide implementation of Professional Learning Communities to increase student achievement. Activities to Promote Progress:
