1 INTERNET CONNECTION Welcome! Check ‘net connection for Do you have access to the handouts? Feel free to adjust tables to see visual aids! SIT AT TABLES ACCORDING TO THE puzzle piece you drew. (For now… we may regroup later.) Do you have access to the handouts?

2 Tammy Jo Schlechter

3 WELCOME My colleagues are gathered here from across the state! Before we begin… do we have an “aisle” the length of the room-? Peanut allergies? I brought snacks!

4 WHAT TEACHERS DO DURING THE SUMMER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X551qBVl Nds Before we get to our: Orientation to Student Learning Objectives

5 Parking Lot Activity Throughout the day, post questions at your parking lot. Periodically, remind Tammy Jo to check “parking lots.” Everyone is encouraged to respond to questions.

6 TAKE AWAY WINDOW 1)FOLD A PIECE OF PAPER HAMBURGER STYLE 2)Write “TAKE AWAY WINDOW” on the front flap. Look for moments. 3)Write “ACTION STEPS” on the back flap.

7 WHAT DO WE KNOW?? On a sticky note or a sheet of paper… Number the paper …

8 Rating your knowledge FIRST STATEMENT: I know the definition of an S.L.O. 1. I don’t know anything about the definition of an SLO. 2. I know a little bit about the definition of an S.L.O. 3. I am comfortable with the definition of an S.L.O. 4. I could teach someone about the definition of an S.L.O.

9 Rate Yourself… 1.I know the definition of an SLO. 2.I understand the four steps of the SLO process. 3.I know how to establish baseline data and determine growth. 4.I know the components of a SMART goal. 5.I know how growth ratings are calculated. 6.I can determine the quality of an SLO using the SLO Quality Checklist. 7.I know how an SLO connects to teacher evaluation.

10 Rate Yourself 1.I know the definition of an SLO. 2.I understand the four steps of the SLO process. 3.I know how to establish baseline data and determine growth. 4.I know the components of a SMART goal. 5.I know how growth ratings are calculated. 6.I can determine the quality of an SLO using the SLO Quality Checklist. 7.I know how an SLO connects to teacher evaluation.

11 BUILDING THE VISUAL Use the PINK small sticky notes on your table. POSTERS ON THE WALL --Put a pink note under the number rating you gave yourself for each statement.

12 S.M.A.R.T. Growth Goal A.K.A. OUR “S.L.0.” By the end of the day, all of the participants in the training will rate themselves as a 3 or 4 for each of the seven statements given.

13 Tammy Jo needed clarification S.L.O. (student learning objective) Step one of this S.L.O. process could be the S.L.O. with the Growth Goal being the overarching title. TJ may call it SMART goal instead of S.L.O. SMART Goal a.k.a. Growth Goal

14 Seven 1-minute Conversations 1.For each statement, Find another person that gave themselves a different rating than you. 2.1 minute conversation – Share what you already know or do not know about the given statement. Let the higher ranking go first. If you ranked yourself a 1, ask a follow up question for better clarification. 3.Don’t forget to quickly introduce yourself! Mingle with teachers from different schools and get to know each other.

15 Agenda Morning: What is an S.L.O? How does it connect to the Charlotte Danielson Framework? How does it connect to Teacher Evaluations? What are the 4 steps in the S.L.O. Process? Afternoon: How do I Write an S.L.O. using the Process Guide? How will my Growth Rating be calculated? Discussing and Understanding all the options!!

16 TABLE INTRO’S What’s your name? Where are you from? What do you teach and for how long? What has your school done to prepare for S.L.O.’s and the new teacher evaluation model so far?

20 SLO does not need to add to your plate. As I worked with the SLO process, I found it validated the best practices I have found on my own!

21 Did Tammy Jo request that you bring multiple copies of the “Student Learning Objective Process Guide”?

22 Seven Posters with our seven topics on the wall Ex: 1. I know the definition of an SLO. 4 I could teach someone about the definition of an SLO. 3 I am comfortable with the definition of an SLO. 2 I know a little about the definition of an SLO. 1 I do not know anything about the definition of an SLO.

23 Norms for the Day Listen with Engagement Honor Each Other’s Thinking Honor Private Think Time Everyone has a Voice Be Respectful of all Comments Limit Side Conversation Take Care of Your Needs Cell Phones Off/Vibrate Lids down. Save devices for WORK TIME.

24 Parking Lot Sharing question: the “protocol” for today Write questions on sticky notes. Place on parking lots at table. Claim question at your table that you can answer. If we cannot answer questions, they end up in the SD DOE Parking Lot on the wall.

25 Outcomes Today 1.I know the definition of an SLO. 2.I understand the four steps of the SLO process. 3.I know how to establish baseline data and determine growth. 4.I know the components of a SMART goal. 5.I know how growth ratings are calculated. 6.I can determine the quality of an SLO using the SLO Quality Checklist. 7.I know how an SLO connects to teacher evaluation.

26 A Little Bit of History South Dakota’s work to develop meaningful educator effectiveness systems is united by a common aspiration: To improve instruction and student learning. – The 2010 Teacher Standards Workgroup – Adopted Charlotte Danielson Framework for Teaching now known as The SD Framework for Teaching – The Teacher Standards Pilot Districts – The 2012 Teacher Evaluation Workgroup – The SD Commission of Teaching and Learning – The Teacher Effectiveness Pilot participants – The Principal Effectiveness Pilot participants – The University of South Dakota

27 More History… Evaluations in the past in SD Teacher evaluation and NCLB waiver SD Teacher Effectiveness Model: 2 parts – Professional practice (SD Framework for Teaching) – Student Growth How does it all fit together?

28 The Aspiration: Improve Instruction and Student Learning 1. Encourage meaningful, in-depth dialogue focused on improving instruction 2. Provide regular, timely, useful feedback that guides professional growth 3. Support a culture in which data drives instructional decisions 4. Establish clear expectations for teacher performance 5. Use multiple measures to meaningfully determine and differentiate teacher performance 6. Provide a fair, flexible, research-based model that informs personnel decisions.

38 CHUNK 1 SLO PROCESS

39 Student Growth Student growth is defined as a positive change in student achievement between two or more points in time. Using a measure of student growth – as opposed to using student achievement results from a single test delivered at a single point in time – is more reflective of the impact an individual teacher has on student learning. Student Learning Objective A Student Learning Objective is a teacher-­‐driven goal or set of goals that establish expectations for student academic growth over a period of time. The specific, rigorous, realistic and measurable goal(s) must be based on baseline data and represent the most important learning that needs to occur during the instructional period. SLOs are aligned to applicable Common Core, state or national standards. Let’s Define It!

40 Definition of a Teacher (a) Provides instruction to any grade, kindergarten through grade twelve, or ungraded class or who teaches in an environment other than a classroom setting; (b) Maintains daily student records; (c) Has completed an approved teacher education program at an accredited institution or completed an alternative certification program; (d) Has been issued a South Dakota certificate; and (e) Is not serving as a principal, assistant principal, superintendent, or assistant superintendent.

41 How many SLOs? A minimum of 1 SLO per teacher is required. Teachers can write more, but only one is required by the state and used for evaluation purposes. Districts may require more than one SLO.

50 Vocabulary Check- Cole’s short and sweet version Student Learning Objective (LONG TERM) Student Learning Target/Outcome (SHORT TERM) Baseline Assessment (PRE-TEST) Progress Update (How are they doing at half way point?) Summative Assessment (POST TEST)

51 Vocabulary Check- TJ’s version Student Learning Objective: shares a teacher-­‐driven goal or set of goals that establish expectations for student academic growth over a period of time (the SLO is more global like at least a semester or year long time-frame… when comparing to a SLT) Student Learning Target/Outcome: Describes daily expectations regarding student learning…often what teachers post in the classroom Baseline Assessment: Defines the students current level of understanding, skill, knowledge, performance, This is the starting point for growth goal. Summative Assessment: Defines the students final level of understanding, skill, knowledge, performance. This is the end point for growth goal. Progress Update: Defines the students progress toward, and checks for progress toward growth goal.

52 Coming next! Example of the heart of the Student Learning Objective…

53 Sample Growth Goal For the school year, 90% of my students will make the end of the year benchmark as measured by the DIBELS Next and DAZE assessments. This example is the end result of working through the SLO development.

67 REVIEW What is an S.L.O.? - A teacher-­‐driven goal or set of goals that establish expectations for student academic growth over a period of time. The specific, rigorous, realistic and measurable goal(s) must be based on baseline data and represent the most important learning that needs to occur during the instructional period. SLOs are aligned to applicable Common Core, state or national standards. What are the 4 steps – 1. S.L.O. Development – 2. S.L.O. Approval – 3. Ongoing Communication – 4. Preparing for Summative

68 BEFORE THE BREAK HIGHLIGHT, INSIGHT, UPTIGHT On a sticky note or sheet of paper… 1) What is one highlight from the morning so far? 2) What is one insight (AHA! Moment)? 3) What is one thing you are “uptight” or confused about still?

69 BREAK TIME 10 MINUTES --- PLEASE BE SEATED AND READY TO ROLL!!! RESPECT THE AGENDA!!

70 – I can determine the quality of an SLO based on the SLO Quality Checklist. Chunking today – I know the definition of an SLO. – I understand the four steps of the SLO process. – I know the components of a SMART goal. – I know how to establish baseline data, determine growth and calculate growth ratings. – I know how SLOs connect to teacher evaluation.

71 HIGHLIGHT, INSIGHT, UPTIGHT Discuss with your Elbow partner. Discuss with your table. Discuss with the whole group.

72 1)Find someone from a different table that is from a different school… 2) You have 1 minute in the elevator with your prinicipal, and she/he asks what you learned about an S.L.O. Process? What are you going to say?

73 Our Training SLO By the end of the day all participants will show growth, and 80% of our intensive (no tools, no clue) will grow at least one level as measured by 4 Corners I know what an SLO is. I know how an SLO connects to teacher evaluation. I know how growth ratings are calculated. I know how to establish baseline data and determine growth. I understand the four steps of the SLO process. I know the components of a SMART goal. I can determine if an SLO meets SD criteria.

76 3 BIG DECISIONS TO GET STARTED 1.What content will be the priority of my S.L.O.??? (What do I want my students to know and be able to do?) 2.What is the student population for my S.L.O.??? (Where are they starting? How many of them are there?) 3.What assessment will I use to measure student learning and growth??? (What is available? What is appropriate? What level is it assessing?)

77 What do I want my students to know and be able to do? – Identify the core concepts and standards. What resources might you use to determine big/essential ideas? – i.e. blueprints, disaggregated standards, curriculum maps, power standards, national standards, content standards and common core standards – Know your timeline for instruction

80 UNDERSTANDING THE SLO PROCESS GUIDE: LET’S DIG IN!

81 Prioritizing Learning Content: H.S. Teacher Pre-test Last years end of year data Statewide summative data Trend data District assessment data Other… Prioritize Learning Content: Identify standards and content. What is the most important learning that needs to occur during the instructional period? Specify which standard(s) the SLO addresses and Identify the specific data source or trend data used. (1a) Students can comprehend nonfiction/fiction stories/texts. Common Core State Standards addressed are RL 3.1, RL 3.5, RL 3.10, RI 3.1, RI 3.2, RI 3.10, RF 3.3, RF 3.4

82 Prioritizing Learning Content: Math Teacher’s Example Pre-test Last years end of year data Statewide summative data Trend data District assessment data Other… Prioritize Learning Content: Identify standards and content. What is the most important learning that needs to occur during the instructional period? Specify which standard(s) the SLO addresses and Identify the specific data source or trend data used. (1a) Students can write, apply, and use expressions, equations, and inequalities (7 th and 8 th ). (EE) Students can apply previous understanding about arithmetic to algebraic expressions; reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities; and represent and analyze quantative relationships between dependent and independent variables (6.EE). Students can use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions and solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations (7.EE). Students can work with radicals and integer exponents; understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations; and analyze and solve linear equations and simultaneous linear equations (8.EE).

83 Prioritizing Learning Content Students can write, apply, and use expressions, equations, and inequalities (7 th and 8 th ). (EE) Students can apply previous understanding about arithmetic to algebraic expressions; reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities; and represent and analyze quantative relationships between dependent and independent variables (6.EE).

Students can work with radicals and integer exponents; understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations; and analyze and solve linear equations and simultaneous linear equations (8.EE).

84 What Will Be the Scope of SLOs? We have three choices! Comprehensive ScopeEssential Skills and ContentFocused Scope (e.g., all Grade 8 Common Core State Standards for English language arts [ELA]) (e.g., all Grade 8 Common Core State Standards for informational text in ELA) (e.g., Grade 8 Common Core State Standards for evaluating arguments and claims in text) StrengthsDrawbacksStrengthsDrawbacksStrengthsDrawbacks Covers all learning May work well for courses that already have finals or cert. exams Can be difficult or cumbersome to assess well Focuses on most important learning Can still be difficult to assess well Involves judgment to determine what is most important Can focus on area of need Easiest of the three to assess Not representative of the learning that occurred during the course

85 Think back to last year, what would you have chosen to work on with students? Think of a possible high need area. Think-Pair-Share in 5! Prioritizing Learning Content Prioritize Learning Content: Identify standards and content. What is the most important learning that needs to occur during the instructional period? Specify which standard(s) the SLO addresses and Identify the specific data source or trend data used. (1a)

86 Where are my students starting? 1. Gather and analyze data to determine how well prepared students are to learn core concepts. – Know your students – Consider which students will be addressed by this SLO – Consider special needs and behaviors

87 Choosing a Student Population What if…? 1.S.L.O. is written for all of the Algebra I students. (ex. Periods 1, 4, 6, and 7) 2.S.L.O. is written for one specific Algebra I class. (Ex. Just Period 1 Algebra Class) What are the strengths and weaknesses of each scenario? Elbow Discussion, Table Discussion, Group Discussion

88 Examples: The S.L.O. for Algebra I we just discussed A social studies teacher writes an SLO that includes the students from his U.S. history classes (class periods 1, 3, 5, and 6). StrengthsDrawbacks Accounts more accurately for the students taught by the teacher Reduces measurement error because numbers of students included in the SLO is high Can be difficult for educators without a course (e.g., special educators, specialists) May increase the amount of data analysis teachers need to conduct Course-Level SLO 88

89 Examples: The S.L.O. for one class of Algebra I we just discussed A social studies teacher writes an SLO that includes the students from his period 3 U.S. history class. A Grade 3 teacher includes all 24 of her students in a reading SLO. StrengthsDrawbacks May reduce the amount of data collection and analysis teachers need to conduct Can be difficult for teachers without a formal course (e.g., special educators, specialists) Can place emphasis on one class over another May not as accurately account for a teacher’s students Class-Level SLO

90 NOTE: If you teach two (or more) subjects go with the tested subject! Teach two subjects?

91 Identify Student Population Behavior Issues? What will effect the most students? Know your kids! Learning disabilities ELL? Identify the Student Population: Describe the context of the class. How many students are addressed by the SLO? Detail any characteristics or special learning circumstances of the class(es). (1b, 1c) All 22 third grade students will be addressed through research based comprehension strategies across all subjects. This will include all of my gap group which includes one ELL, four Title I students, and one SPED student.

92 Identify Student Population: Math Teacher’s Example Behavior Issues? What will effect the most students? Know your kids! Learning disabilities ELL? Identify the Student Population: Describe the context of the class. How many students are addressed by the SLO? Detail any characteristics or special learning circumstances of the class(es). (1b, 1c) All students enrolled in middle school math will be addressed through the SLO (35 regular education students, 5 SPED students)

93 Identify Student Population Think back to last year, what was your classroom make-up for students? Think-Pair-Share in 5! Identify the Student Population: Describe the context of the class. How many students are addressed by the SLO? Detail any characteristics or special learning circumstances of the class(es). (1b, 1c)

94 Interval of Instruction: Math Teacher’s Example The School Year? How long will you measure the growth? Other? A Semester Class? 9 weeks? Interval of Instruction: Specify the time frame in which growth will What is the time period in which student growth is expected to occur? Identify the length of the course or provide rationale for a time period that is less than the full length of the course. The school year.

95 Interval of Instruction Think back to last year, would you use the whole year? A semester? A three month period? Share out as a table in 5! Interval of Instruction: Specify the time frame in which growth will What is the time period in which student growth is expected to occur? Identify the length of the course or provide rationale for a time period that is less than the full length of the course.

96 What Assessments are Available? Select or develop an appropriate assessment to measure student learning and growth. Content assessed at baseline is comparable to content assessed at the end of instruction Describe how the goal attainment will be measured.

97 Is Assessment Appropriate? Aligned to priority content & standards Measures what it was designed to measure Produces accurate and consistent picture of what student know & do Gives sufficient time to administer and generates data in a timely fashion

98 “More Common” = More Widely Used STATE MANDATED ASSESSMENTS This category includes assessments mandated for use statewide and includes assessments required by state and federal law. Examples: Smarter Balanced Assessment, Dakota Step Science Assessment (or the state- required science assessment) COMMON STATE AND DISTRICT ASSESSMENTS This category includes assessments not mandated for state use but are widely used by several districts and schools. Assessments in this category include commercially available assessments, district-developed pre- and post-tests or course-level assessments. Assessments could also take the form of established rubric-scored performance-based assessments. Examples: Assessments available through the South Dakota Assessment Portal, End-of- Course Exams, Write-to-Learn, WIDA-Access Placement Test (English-Language learners), National Career Readiness Certificate, DIBELS, AP Exams, STARS reading/math, MAPS, AIMS Web, CTE Performance Contests/Judging. TEACHER-DEVELOPED ASSESSMENTS This category of assessments includes classroom assessments used by a single course for a particular teacher. More Common Less Common

99 Analyze Data & Develop Baseline Where are my students starting? Bring in multiple measures if possible. These scores are expected to be low! State the scores. Name the assessments used. Analyze Data and Develop Baseline: Detail student understanding of the content at the beginning of the instructional period. Where are my students starting? Summarize student baseline performance and attach additional data if necessary. (1b, 1f, 3d) I will be using the DIBELS Next beginning of the year data. From this data in the DAZE – 68% met benchmark at the beginning of the year. In the Retell, 39% met benchmark in the beginning of the year. In Retell Quality, 39% met benchmark at the beginning of the year. 55% met benchmark on the Composite Score.

100 Analyze Data & Develop Baseline: Math Teacher’s Example Where are my students starting? Bring in multiple measures if possible. These scores are expected to be low! State the scores. Name the assessments used. Analyze Data and Develop Baseline: Detail student understanding of the content at the beginning of the instructional period. Where are my students starting? Summarize student baseline performance and attach additional data if necessary. (1b, 1f, 3d) The students and I noticed that our weakest area as a team is in algebraic reasoning. I need to be more specific, so please see attached data that shows our specific scores of students on their fall NWEA MAP math test.

101 Analyze Data & Develop Baseline Think back to last year (and thinking ahead to this coming year), what could you use to pre-assess and post-assess your students? Discuss in 5! Analyze Data and Develop Baseline: Detail student understanding of the content at the beginning of the instructional period. Where are my students starting? Summarize student baseline performance and attach additional data if necessary. (1b, 1f, 3d)

102 Select or Develop an Assessment After looking at all data – choose one assessment for your SLO. Where did you get the assessment? How does this assessment connect to the content? Select or Develop an Assessment: Describe how the goal attainment will be measured. What specific assessment or instrument will be used to measure goal attainment? Describe the source of the assessment and the connection to identified content and standards. (1c, 1d, 1f, and 3d) I will use the DIBELS Next Spring assessment. It is a valid and reliable tool used to measure basic reading skills in students K-6. It specifically measures comprehension through Retell, Retell Quality and DAZE.

103 Select or Develop an Assessment: Math Teacher Example After looking at all data – choose one assessment for your SLO. Where did you get the assessment? How does this assessment connect to the content? Select or Develop an Assessment: Describe how the goal attainment will be measured. What specific assessment or instrument will be used to measure goal attainment? Describe the source of the assessment and the connection to identified content and standards. (1c, 1d, 1f, and 3d) I will use NWEA Map math benchmark assessments. This assessment aligns with CCSS. This tool is used district-wide and I have data collected from last year for comparison.

104 Continue your discussion of what your assessment portion of the SLO process would look like? Discuss in 5! Select or Develop an Assessment Select or Develop an Assessment: Describe how the goal attainment will be measured. What specific assessment or instrument will be used to measure goal attainment? Describe the source of the assessment and the connection to identified content and standards. (1c, 1d, 1f, and 3d)

105 What can I expect my students to achieve? Leads to the development of student growth objectives with a strong rationale supporting why the objectives are appropriate. How will I help my students obtain the goal?

106 The SMART Process A Format for Developing SLOs S Specific The goal addresses student needs within the content. M Measurable An appropriate instrument or measure is selected to assess the goal. A Appropriate The goal is standards- based, needs- focused (and directly addresses all students) R Realistic & Rigorous The goal is attainable and stretches student learning. T Time-bound The goal is contained to a single school year/course.

107 WRITING THE GROWTH GOAL GROWTH GOALS ARE THE HEART OF THE S.L.O. – They Should be S.M.A.R.T. !!!!

108 (Smart) Specific Does the SLO state exactly what learning content needs to be addressed and the specific standards to which the learning content relates? Is the learning content aligned to Common Core State Standards, state content standards or credible national standards?

109 (sMart) Measurable Standards-based assessment? Comparable across classrooms? Measures are stated by increases in: – Rate, – Percentage, – Number, – Level of performance, – Rubric standards, – Gain Score or – Other ways…

110 (smArt) Appropriate Was the SLO developed using baseline data that is comparable between the beginning and end of the instructional period? Is the SLO directly related to a teacher’s subject, grade-level and students? For a Class Mastery Goal, does the goal include all students in the class or course? For a Differentiated Growth Goal, does the goal include a growth goal for all groups of students?

111 (smaRt) Realistic & Rigorous Does the SLO contain a growth goal that identifies expected student growth that stretches the outer boundary of what is attainable? Is the SLO rigorous when compared to SLOs established by teachers in similar grades/subjects?

112 (smarT) Time-bound Does the SLO have a time frame for accomplishing the measurable objective? Is there ongoing progress monitoring data for adjusting the learning experience toward the goal? Is the data collected between 2 points in time, as close to beginning and ending of course as possible?

113 BREAK TIME TIME FOR A BREAK! 10 MINUTES Thinking about: “In the SLO process, teachers write student growth goals using the SMART format.” As the following music ends, it is the signal to begin again ~L.M

114 REMEMBER… REMEMBER: The Growth Goal is one component of the entire SLO.

115 Establishes tiered expectations for student growth for groups of students. The educators define what growth looks like for each group of students. Growth Goals Differentiate d Growth Based on quality baseline data and educator- determined definition of mastery. Goal is structured based on percent of students attaining mastery. Class Mastery Teams of teachers agree to work collaboratively and share responsibility/accountability for student learning for a content area, grade level or school. Shared Performanc e

116 By the end of the first semester, all students that obtained a score in the D or F range will improve by at least two letter grades and all students that obtained a score in the C or B range will improve by one letter grade. A score in the A range should improve their percentage. Growth Goal Example Statements Differentiate d Growth By the end of the first semester, All students will reach 90% proficiency in simplifying algebraic expressions and solving algebraic equations that are linear, quadratic, rational, and radical. Class Mastery By the end of the school year, all students in the middle school will show at least a 15% improvement in their score on the assessment dealing with the probability and statistics standards for their grade level. Shared Performanc e

117 Growth Goal Use the SMART goal format. How far can you take students from where they start? Rubric standard, gain scores, or other…. Can be measured using rate, percentage, number, Level of performance, Mastery Growth Goal: Establish expectations for student growth. What can I expect my students to achieve? Establish rigorous expectations for student performance. (1b 1c) For the school year 90% of my students will have a DIBELS Next composite score of 330 or higher, showing grade level reading proficiency, and no students will score in the intensive category on the composite score.

126 REVIEW What is an S.L.O.? - A teacher-­‐driven goal or set of goals that establish expectations for student academic growth over a period of time. The specific, rigorous, realistic and measurable goal(s) must be based on baseline data and represent the most important learning that needs to occur during the instructional period. SLOs are aligned to applicable Common Core, state or national standards. What are the 4 steps – 1. S.L.O. Development – 2. S.L.O. Approval – 3. Ongoing Communication – 4. Preparing for Summative

(1e, 4a) All students have made growth toward the goal, and are on track to meet the goal by the end of the school year. Those students who are still performing below proficiency will continue to be progress monitored.

143 “Strategy Modification” could look like this… Do I need to adjust? Change up instructional strategies? Keep on keeping on? Strategy Modification: If necessary, document changes in strategy. Does data suggest I need to adjust my instruction strategy? Describe how you plan to meet the goal. (1e, 4a) Students who struggle with formative assessment have assistance in study hall, after school and through flipped classroom resources. Students may be recommended for tutoring or ICU. I documented both student meeting and home contacts.

144 SLO Adjustment Any reason to change the goal? Did circumstances change? Revise if needed. Sign and Date SLO Adjustment: If justified, describe the changes to the SLO. Are there circumstances beyond the teacher’s control that will impact the growth goal? If needed, attach a revised SLO (1b, 4a) No change.

147 Scores for 80% Goal Sample SLO: At the end of the term, all students will show measurable progress in HS Chemistry as shown by the American Chemical Society National High School Final Exam. 80% of all students will obtain a score of 26 or better on the exam. (26 is considered average). Low Less than 65% goal attainment (.80 x.65 = Less than 52%) Expected 65% to 85% goal attainment (.80 x.65 = 52%) (.80 x.85 = 68%) High 86% to 100% percent attainment (.80 x %) (.80 x 100 = 80%)

150 Step 4 Figure where your scores must be according to your growth goal. For example: For 80% growth – use the formula. Low growth is less than 65% High growth is % of your goal Expected growth is 65 – 85% For the school year, I can expect measurable growth for all of my students in fiction/non fiction stories/texts. 90% of my students will be at benchmark as measured by the DIBELS Next assessment.

151 End of Year Data

152 High Growth This teacher made high growth! Explain at your table how you determined student growth. Don’t forget to celebrate! What is the high growth range? High Growth: This growth goal was 86% to 100% attained. What does high growth mean? Detail end-of-course achievement levels that equate to high growth. ( 4b) Composite Score: 83% met benchmark; Retell: 77% met benchmark; Retell quality: 75% met benchmark; DAZE: 85% met benchmark Based on the Spring Composite Score, my students are in the range of high growth since high growth would be 77%-90%. Which translates that 83% of my third grade students can read at an appropriate rate with a high degree of accuracy, and can comprehend both fiction and non-fiction text.

153 High Growth This teacher made high growth! Explain at your table how you determined student growth. Don’t forget to celebrate! What is the high growth range? High Growth: This growth goal was 86% to 100% attained. What does high growth mean? Detail end-of-course achievement levels that equate to high growth. ( 4b) At the end of the year, 21 of 24 students passed all 4 sub tests. 87.5% of my students passed the assessment.

154 Professional Growth Detail what you learned! What needs to change for next year? What support can be provided? Professional Growth. Detail what you learned. What worked? What should be refined? Describe the support you need to improve instruction and student learning. (1s, 4a) Tier 1 instruction is working for more than 80% of my students. Spring DIBELS Next data indicated that 4 of the students will need more intensive, small group instruction to get them to grade level benchmark, and make appropriate growth. For those students who did not make adequate progress, I will use more intensive interventions in a small setting, and will use progress monitoring data to determine if the additional support is working.
