EVAAS & Standard 6 Summary of NCDPI Staff Development 12/4/12
Everything I tell you today only pertains to Standard 6!!!! Standards 1-5 are still in effect and are still VERY IMPORTANT!!!
The EVAAS Philosophy All students deserve opportunities to make appropriate academic progress every year. There is no one size fits all way of educating students who enter a class at different levels of academic achievement.
The EVAAS Philosophy Adjustments to instruction should be based on the students academic needs, not on socio-economic factors. "What teachers know and can do is the most important influence on what students learn." (National Commission on Teaching and America's Future, 1996)
ACHIEVEMENT VS. GROWTH
Student Achievement End of School Year Proficient
Student Growth End of School Year Proficient Start of School Year Not Proficient Change over time
Changes in Reporting for Above Not Detectably Different Below Exceeds Expected Growth Meets Expected Growth Does Not Meet Expected Growth
EVAAS Projections What are they based on? Expectations based on what we know About this student and other students who have already taken this test Prior test scores (EOC/EOG), across subjects Their scores on the test were projecting to
Whats the Value of the Projections? Projections are NOT about predicting the future. They ARE about assessing students academic needs TODAY.
Assessing Students Needs What are this students chances for success? What goals should we have for this student this year? What goals should we have for this student in future years? What can I do to help this student get there?
Using Projections to Take Action Identify students Assess the level of risk Plan schedules Identify high-achievers Assess the opportunities Inform
Understanding Teacher Reports
What you see is last years results. These reports are powerful for school and district improvement.
Teacher Value-Added Report
Why should you care about your EVAAS Teacher Value Added Report? Beginning with your 2013 report, it becomes part of your evaluation. – Standard 6 – Teachers contribute to the academic success of their students. (Measurable Progress) – Standard 4 – Teachers facilitate learning for their students Teachers plan instruction appropriate for their students – Use data for short and long range planning – Standard 5 – Teachers reflect on their practice. Teacher analyze student learning.
Why should you care about your EVAAS Teacher Value Added Report? You care about your students.
Achievement vs. Progress Student Progress – How far have I come? Highly dependent on what happens as a result of schooling rather than on demographic factors.
Achievement vs. Progress Focus on progress Educators can influence this Minimum expectation = one year of academic gain
Understanding Value Added Projection report looks at past testing information and projects how a student will perform. – Students own past performance – Performance of students who have taken the test previously Students must have three prior test scores for something to be included in the teachers predictive report. Whole cohort of students analyzed.
EVAAS can tell you WHAT happened. Its up to YOU to determine WHY it happened and what you want to do about it. Improve the Education Program EVAAS Local Knowledge & Expertise
Info about Teacher Reports State Growth Standard/State Average = 0.0 Standard Error = a measure of uncertainty – Usually, the more data you have, the smaller the standard error. Index = Teacher Estimate divided by Standard Error
Effectiveness Level Determination Exceeds Expected Growth: – Teachers whose students are making substantially more progress than the state average – Index is 2 or greater
Effectiveness Level Determination Meets Expected Growth: – Teachers whose students are making the same amount of progress as the state average – Index is equal to or greater than -2 but less than 2
Effectiveness Level Determination Does Not Meet Expected Growth: – Teachers whose students are making substantially less progress than the state average – Index is less than -2
What are they looking for One years worth of growth in one year Remove blame game Where can we get them from where they start
What does this mean to teachers STD 6 on Evals No more important than STD 1 – 5 This is the first year No test for you – 100% use school data – School data EOCs Teachers with test use 70%/30% split – 70% your test data – 30% school data Verify rosters at end of year
What does this mean to teachers Reports that are out are for info only – Last years data – You can see data to make instructional decisions Looking for a 3-year trend EVAAS tells the WHAT not the WHY – Teachers and Admins need to determine the why
What does this mean to teachers Your data is put on a curve and compared to the state (Teacher Estimate) It is Norm Referenced This means that even if the test changes then it will still be fair year to year because you will be compared to the state avg. Your score will be based on the state avg.
What does this mean to teachers Your score is called Teacher Index State Growth Standard/State Average = 0.0 Standard Error = a measure of uncertainty – Usually, the more data you have, the smaller the standard error. Index = Teacher Estimate divided by Standard Error
What does this mean to teachers Three categories – DNM, Meets, Exceeds Meets – range based on SEM – Range of +2 to -2 Does not meet – Below -2 Exceeds – Above +2
Some good news! (If I understood correctly) Since this is based on standard bell curve – Thats what the state avg. is based on…. – You will be placed on this curve Approximately 68% of all data fall between -1 and 1 Approximately 95% of all data fall between -2 and 2 We will get the range of -2 and 2 to MEET
Little More info School data is based on EOCs only Beginning in 2015 is when we get ratings – Highly effective – Effective – Needs improvement State has not developed any IF – Then statements – Except currently with STD 1-5 – Developing requires a more directed plan
Im still unclear Is teacher SEM based on all classes or each individual class? Will test change year to year? What is going to happen to those who need improvement?
Message state wants us to get The purpose and power in EVAAS is in the Reflection that leads to improved instruction for KIDS! Website…… – – Region6pd.ncdpi.wikispaces.net – Jessica Garner – Check out Region 7 as well
Dont forget This is still JUST ONE STANDARD OUT OF 6 Std 1-5 still in effect
Next? Check out the website, explore Will be setting up a discussion board
