20 Reviewing Results: Deconstructing a Goal Coming in JANUARY Choose one high leverage strategy from last year’s plan. What did your leadership team discover about Readiness? Knowledge and skills? Opportunity to implement? Implementation with fidelity? How did the results impact your new school improvement plan at the strategy and activity level? Program Evaluation

29 A Little More On “Bottom 30%” This subgroup behaves differently than the others…

30 Suppose we ranked our students by test scale score: If we have 20% Proficient (2 students) they would be from the highest scoring students… If we had 50% Proficient, they would be from the highest scoring students…. Lowest Score Highest Score Bottom 30%

31 In fact, the “Bottom 30” subgroup will have 0% proficient until our overall proficiency rate >70%. How does this impact our AMOs?

32 Suppose our AMO is 33% In our example, that would be 1 student in the Bottom 30% subgroup. Since all non-Bottom 30% students would have to be proficient before we can get to that student, 33% translates into 80% overall! Lowest Score Highest Score Bottom 30%

33 How does this relate to schools? The percentage of Michigan schools that have AMOs for 2013-14 below 70% are: –58% in Reading –89% in Writing –95% in Math –98% in Social Studies –99.8% in Science For those schools, they can meet their AMOs for all students and the other subgroups and still not be able to meet it for Bottom 30%.
