1 Welcome Workshop Goals: Understand data sources Learn the basic components of an effective assessment Analyze and effectively use data

2 Overview of NOCTI Over 40 years serving the CTE community Non-profit organization Owned and operated by the 50 states Works with both secondary and post-secondary populations The Whitener Group (a NOCTI subsidiary) provides services to industry

3 NOCTI Customer Breakdown

8 NOCTI Job Ready Assessment Blueprint Number of Questions: 222 Areas Covered:Accounting

9 Assessment Blueprints to Prepare How can I prepare my students for the NOCTI assessment? Assessment Blueprints!!! Ideas for using blueprints in the classroom: Use throughout the school year as a syllabus and guide for review Involve the students: have them calculate the number of questions in each content area Send a copy home with students to share with parent

10 Assessment Results NOCTIs Standard Score Reporting Package: Individual Score Reports Group Score Reports Comparative Data Other Reports Available: Task-Link Reports Integrated Academic Reports

14 Using Data to Improve Instruction

15 Collect Data: Become familiar with your data

16 Understanding Your Data School Program Teacher Class Student Standards National State District/System

17 What the Data Reveal Achievement gaps Differences between subgroups Trends Progress

18 Assessment Includes process of collecting, analyzing, and interpreting information Determines the degree to which students are becoming competent and meeting standards Occurs at many levels (e.g., classroom and program assessments to state and national assessments)

19 Good Assessments Valid Test items measure what they are supposed to measure: the important content or concepts that were taught and that the student must know Test is relevant and based on current standards Subject matter experts develop and evaluate test items

20 Good Assessments Reliable Test and its items produce a similar score over time Scores are consistent, not contradictory Scores are not affected by chance

21 Student Assessment On-going with frequent opportunities for feedback Use a variety of different types of assessment (e.g., written and performance, formative and summative) during the year

22 Summative Assessment Pretests (covering all major content areas) are used to identify entry skills and measure gain End-of-program or annual test Broader in scope, for comparison of groups

23 Formative Assessment Continuous correction from quizzes, homework, projects, participation Use practice items for instructional revision before summative assessment

24 Building an Assessment Test specification matrix or Blueprint National Standards Duties and Tasks Written/Performance Weighting Panel of Experts

25 Step 2 Analyze Data: Draw conclusions from data
