1 Detailed Slideshow

2 Why is North Carolina developing Home Base? The central focus of READY is improving every students learning... …and enabling and ensuring great teaching is how we get there. One of the ways to enable great teaching is to put powerful tools in the hands of teachers and school leaders.

3 What is Home Base and what will it do? Information The Home Base student information system will replace NC WISE. The system will allow educators to collect key data and manage student information in a secure, useful way. Among other things, Home Base will be used for: Attendance Scheduling Grading Transcripts Parent and Student Portals Instruction The Home Base instructional improvement system will have a suite of standards- aligned tools to enable great teaching. Every user will have one password to enter only one time to access resources and tools. Home Base will have two key functions: think: a simpler, better information system to replace NC WISE Informational think: a new standards- aligned tool for instruction, assessment, data analysis and professional development Instructional Home Base is an online tool for teaching and learning. Educator Effectiveness Evaluation and Professional Development Instructional design, practice & resources including a Learning Management System Assessment Data Analysis and Reporting Different users will have different types of access. For example: Teachers can search for great lesson plans then create classroom assessments, crunch the resulting data to adjust instruction and communicate progress to parents – all in Home Base. Principals can monitor ongoing benchmark assessment data, compare it to mid-year observation ratings and then access professional development to address staff needs – all in Home Base

4 Assessment In the novel, what motivated Sarahs behavior? Support your claim with evidence from the text. Functional Categories – The Basics Home Base tools are designed to help you manage information and improve instruction. Student Information and Learner Profile Educator Effectiveness: Evaluation and Professional Development Instructional Design, Practice & Resources Data Analysis and Reporting InformationInstruction Major Functions Attendance Scheduling Grading Transcripts Parent, Student and Educator Portals Highlights Portals so students, parents and educators can access information Data validation tools to make managing student information easier and improve data quality Security to make sure only the right people can access data Major Functions Find high-quality resources based on standards or search criteria Contribute to a shared repository of North Carolina-made resources Highlights Major Functions Develop aligned assessments for formative, interim or summative purposes Deliver assessments Highlights Major Functions Compile and analyze data Share progress with students and colleagues Analyze data to take informed action Highlights Integrate with assessment tools and student information to deliver data on student progress to teachers, parents and students in an easy-to-understand, actionable way Easy access to your data and a direct, fast way to pull it Major Functions Record and organize NC Educator Evaluation System observation and evaluation data (replacing the current online tool) Select resources aligned to meet professional development needs Highlights Professional Development resources aligned to the North Carolina Educator Evaluation Rubric Learning Management System Tools for Teaching Built to help educators teach, organize, communicate and collaborate online with their students Vetted and standards- aligned resources Classroom & Interim Summative A rich bank of items to build your own rigorous, standards-aligned assessments Delivery of summative assessments online including computer adaptive testing

9 How will Home Base be rolled out? Home Base will be available to districts without costs for the school year. Home Base will be phased in with many key functions available at the beginning of the school year year will be a kick-off year; we expect it to take districts time to learn and apply the resources in Home Base.

10 During the kick-off year, districts will be able to use the optional functions of Home Base at their own discretion. By March of 2014, districts will be able to choose to cost-share for the optional tools in Home Base in at $4 per student.
