5 MEDMS DATA IS YOUR DATA When you enter the Measured Progress Web Site, you are viewing reports generated with the data that was posted by your district into the MEDMS system. If your MEA reports are incorrect, the data was incorrectly entered into MEDMS from your district. Student Data is your responsibility. Please make sure to ensure all data entered into MEDMS is true and accurate. This will ensure true and accurate MEA reports for your district.
6 MEDMS Data is YOUR Data School administrative units must enroll students in the MEDMS Student Information System no later than October 15, The MEDMS home page is available at: The following information will be available on the MEDMS Student Information website: Student Data Entry Completion Data Fields to Complete Student Data General Definitions Related to Student Enrollment Data Dropout Reporting Instructions Fiscal Responsibility Foreign Exchange Student Information Home School Education State Agency Clients Information Superintendents Agreement Information SOURCE: INFORMATIONAL LETTER 4, 2007

15 School Summary Cont. School Summary Report shows only Whole Group Data. It does not show sub group data. Make sure to look at NSLP Data, Special Education Data and any additional sub group data as they are all part of determining AYP.
16 Class Analysis Report PDF Select a pdf report for Reading and Math.
17 This PDF is the Class Analysis Report or CAR All students are listed alphabetically and with their MEDMS ID number. Also listed on this report are: Released Item Cluster # Grade Level Expectation (Enhanced GLEs) Item Type (MC, SA, CR) Correct Response Total Possible Points Remember this file contains student names and is a Confidential FERPA list. Take off names when using with any audience other than school employees that have direct connection to students.
18 Additional CAR Information At the bottom of each page you can compare scores on each item (Item Analysis). It is also possible to compare: –Class to Class –Class to School –School to School –School to District –School to State –District to State Also listed are cluster level points earned, total points earned, scaled score and achievement level of each student.
19 Class Analysis Report CSV Look at the csv file (comma separated variables)
20 CSV File This file can be manipulated and saved as a workbook and excel spreadsheet. Additional information can be added, such as local testing data (e.g. DRA, NWEA). Unimportant information can also be removed (e.g. middle initial). Color coding sub groups makes a great visual when presenting data to staff and administration. Remember this file contains student names and is a confidential FERPA list. Take off names when using with any audience other than school employees that have direct connection to students.
21 Color Coding CSV File DOEs School Improvement Team uses the following color coding: Blue-NSLP Green-SPECIAL EDUCATION Orange-FAY (Full Academic Year) Yellow-Ethnic Pink-LEP (Limited English Proficient)
22 Manipulating CSV File There are a total of 45 columns of information on the CSV file. Several columns that can be eliminated if desired.

24 Select March 2006 AYP Report Select : March 2006 AYP Report
25 Selecting AYP Reports Next, select District Then, select School There are three reports to choose from: -State AYP Report -District AYP Report -School AYP Report
26 AYP Report This report contains: Grade 4 Status Report Grade 8 Status Report Participation Data for Gr. 3-8 Reading Participation Data for Gr. 3-8 Math Performance Data for Gr. 3-8 WHOLE GROUP Reading State Performance Data for Gr. 3-8 WHOLE GROUP Math
27 District AYP Report Pages 2-3 Includes separate District AYP Status reports for Grades 4 and/or 8. The report lists your schools group(s) –Whole District –Ethnic groups –Economically Disadvantaged –Students with Disabilities –Limited English Proficient Also, whether the district met participation requirements of 95%.
28 District AYP Participation Data Pages 4-5 list District Reading and Math Participation Data for Grades 3-8. If the sub group is larger than 40 students the report lists the School Total. To the far right is the % Average Daily Attendance, which must be above 88%.
29 To get Student PAAP Reports go to Select Maine Alternative Assessment (PAAP)
STATE PAAP Performance Grade 4-Reading- 223 students took PAAP and 35% were proficient Grade 4-Math- 172 students took PAAP and 31% were proficient Grade 8-Reading- 217 students took PAAP and 36% were proficient Grade 8-Math- 224 students took PAAP and 40% were proficient Questions/Additional Information?

31 Make sure to watch your sub-group data! Previously, many sub groups were too small to be reviewed for AYP. REMEMBER: AYP will be determined for any NCLB sub group with 20 or more students.
32 How will AYP be Determined Next School Year? Next year AYP for Reading and Math will be determined by combining all grades (3-8) in a school and will use one year data.
33 Proposed Targets for Reading and Math The proposed new target for Reading Grades 3-8 is 50% The proposed new target for Math Grades 3-8 is 40%
34 Additional Information The following slides may be helpful to answer additional questions regarding MEA/AYP.
35 Observations from MEA It is important to remember that 2006 MEA scores at grades 4 and 8 represent different scores based on different content standards and different achievement standards. The test was not easier or harder than past years, but was different. The No Child Left Behind Act requires that at least 95% of all students in grades 3-8 take part in the MEA. In Maine, fully 99% of students took part at each grade and in each subject, which is a reflection on the commitment of Maine schools to this process. The MEA is designed to provide access to all students through standard administration of the test, participation by students with approved accommodations, or through alternate assessment.
MEA Observations Cont. Across all grades, a greater percentage of females than males met proficiency in reading, which is consistent with past performance and national trends. There were no significant differences in the numbers of students meeting proficiency in mathematics or science based on gender.
MEA Observations Cont. There continues to be a decrease in mathematics performance at the middle school level, which is consistent with national measures and indicates the need for future research. Students at all grades who report that the questions in the MEA, which measure Learning Results-based expectations, match what they have had the opportunity to learn in school, perform at a higher level.
38 Selected Observations Cont. There is a strong correlation at all grades that a moderate amount of homework (up to 2 hours on school nights) is associated with stronger performance on the MEA. Those students who report reading more than 20 minutes at home each day perform considerably better on the MEA.
MEA Released Items and GLEs Please go to the following link and down load Released Items for Grades 3-8 to your hard drive. MEA Test items are connected and matched to the 2007 Enhanced Grade Level Expectations. It is important that all teachers are instructing and assessing using the Enhanced GLEs at their specific grade level. Please go to the link below to down load Enhanced GLE's for reading and math.
