1 1 Web Based CSIP Application and the Concept of Benchmarking Scott Trimble Workshop on Instruction and Assessment – 2007 Dena Dossett Tamara Lewis Jefferson County Public Schools Shaping the Future

2 2 Agenda Planning Overview SMART Goals Benchmarking Web-Based Application Lessons Learned, Next Steps

3 3 Planning Philosophy Planning can be: A Globe An Atlas A Roadmap A To-Do List for the School

4 Plan as Globe

5 5 Research Summary Why arent plans effective as a change agent for school improvement? Not driven by school leadership Not embraced by school faculty Not fully implemented Lack of regular monitoring process

6 6 Research Summary When does it work? When are plans effective? -Faculty had greater input in the writing -Plan discussed in weekly team meetings -Linked to teacher growth plans -Academic goal setting based on data at the school and classroom levels Source: Canwell, 2004; Langer & Colton, 2005; Mintrop & MacLellan, 2002; Reddekopp, 2007, Togneri & Anderson, 2003

7 7 Purpose for CSIP Changes Change the content and format of the CSIP in order to make the plan: Simple Useful Make it a working document from which schools can measure progress towards goals through benchmarks

8 8 Developing SMART Goals and Identifying Benchmarks

9 9 S.M.A.R.T. Goals Find a Partner Write down what you think SMART stands for: S = M = A = R = T=

10 10 SMART Goals S pecific and S trategic Think through the entire goal – who, what, where, when, which, why M easurable Concrete criteria for measuring progress A ttainable Focus on priorities R esults-oriented Set realistic goals based on trends T imebound Set specific timelines for attaining goal Reference: Conzemius, A., ONeill, J. (2001) Building Shared Responsibility for Student Learning, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, Alexandria: VA

11 11 SMART Goals Goals should specify improvement targets by defining the performance level (end-result) you would like to accomplish. You should have in mind the specific tools or measures that you will use to monitor progress on each goal SMART Goal : By when, who will do what as measured by what SMART Goal Example : By June 2007, student attendance will increase to 94.7 as reported in JCPS pupil monthly attendance report

12 12 Goal Suggestions Schools should include both main goals and subgroup goals Main goals are centered around CATS goals and encompass strategies that apply to all students Subgroup goals for subpopulations include strategies that target the specific subpopulation Schools can use the goal calculator in the planning tools to enter previous KCCT academic data and goals for the next school year will be automatically generated

13 13 SMART Goals By May 2007, our schools Math Index will increase by for a total Math Index of as measured on the Kentucky Core Content Test. By 2007, the percentage of students scoring proficient or distinguished will increase to the total percentage of scoring proficient or distinguished in Math as measured on the Kentucky Core Content Test.

14 14 SMART Goals By March 2007, decrease the number of African American males scoring novice to 25% and raise the African American males scoring above proficient to 30% as measured by math learning checks * Adapted from KDE Instructional Support Network News.

15 15 Sample School CATS Scores Reading 2006 Index75.0 Proficient/Distinguished51% Novice 21% FRL Novice 36% FRL Proficient32%

16 16 Activity 1: Develop SMART goal 1.Review the Data from Sample School 2.Identify the target group (Who) 3.Identify the performance level you would like to accomplish. (Calculation: Distance from 100 or 0; divide by 4; add to 2006 score) (What) 4.Identify timelines for measuring progress and attaining the target (When) 5.Write goal as a SMART goal

17 17 Things to Keep in Mind: Dos and Donts for SMART Goals Establishing Goals Do begin by reviewing current data trends before establishing goals Do let your goal drive your activities. Do ensure that all goals can be quantified and have a date and a measure associated with them Do think through the number stated in the goal. Is it a realistic number? Does it follow the trend data? Is your goal a SMART goal?

18 18 Benchmarking involves: Frequent assessment of student performance Assessments for Learning Monitoring progress toward meeting goals Coinciding with the implementation and impact check Using results to improve instruction Benchmarking

19 19 Summative Assessments Used to measure goals Assessments of Learning How much a student has learned at the end of course, semester, or unit Examples: CATS ACT SAT Final Exams Unit ExamsProjects Assessment Overview

20 20 Benchmarking Formative Assessments Used to measure progress toward goal Assessments for Learning Helps teachers adjust instruction Examples: QuizHomeworkObservations ChecklistsStudent Work Mini-CATS like testsMultiple Choice Checks Learning Checks

21 21 Goal – Benchmark Mapping Goal FocusPossible Benchmarks Content Index (i.e. Reading, Math) Classroom Assessment System (CAS) School developed scrimmage tests % Novice or % Proficient/Dist. Classroom Assessment System (CAS) Predictive Assessment Series (PAS) % Proficient/Dist. for Subgroups Classroom Assessment System (CAS) Predictive Assessment Series (PAS) AttendanceMonthly pupil attendance report Parent InvolvementParent-teacher conferences PTA membership Parent visits (school sign-in sheets) SuspensionsMonthly suspension report

22 22 Benchmarking Activity Form a small group of 3 or 4 or 5 Round Robin and share with the group the Benchmarking assessments you use in your school/district. What data does the benchmark provide? (i.e. Novice levels, Index scores, percentiles, etc.)

23 23 CSIP Web Application

24 24 Web-Based Application Change the content and format of the CSIP in order to make the plan: Simple Useful Make it a working document from which schools can measure progress towards goals through benchmarks- make it a To-Do List

25 25 Provides built-in planning tools Measures progress towards goals Connects plan development & implementation Offers greater flexibility in adjusting plan Provides means for custom-based reports Advantages to New CSIP Model

26 26 New Plan Format Priority Need Goal Benchmarks for Year Measure and Date Projected Data and Actual Data Strategy Area Activity, Responsible Person, Dates Funding I & I (Built in for ongoing use)

27 27 New Plan Format Whats Not In Printed Plan Causes/Contributing Factor (moved to worksheet tool) Measurable Objectives/Goals streamlined to a SMART Goal

28 28 New Plan Format

29 29 Log In Screen Log In Screen allows users to enter into their schools CSIP application
