5 High Effect Size Indicators “The Department’s identified set of indicators on high effect size instructional and leadership strategies with a causal relationship to student learning growth constitute priority issues for deliberate practice and faculty development.”-Florida Department of Education, 2012Student learning needs and faculty and leadership development needs will vary from school to school and from district to district. However, contemporary research reveals a core of instructional and leadership strategies that have a higher probability than most of positively impacting student learning in significant ways. The indicators below link formative feedback and evaluation to contemporary research on practices that have a positive impact on student learning growth.• Research on the cause and effect relationships between instructional and leadership strategies and student outcomes address the effect size of a strategy: What degree of impact does it have?• In the context of district instructional and leadership evaluation systems, effect size is a statistical estimation of the influence a strategy or practice has on student learning. Effect size calculations result from statistical analyses in research focused on student learning where the correct and appropriate use of a strategy yields better student learning growth than when the strategy is not used or is used incorrectly or inappropriately.• In research terms, those strategies often identified as “high effect size” are those with higher probabilities of improving student learning.Classroom teachers need a repertoire of strategies with a positive effect size so that what they are able to do instructionally, after adapting to classroom conditions, has a reasonable chance of getting positive results. As school leaders and mentor teachers begin to focus on feedback to colleagues to improve proficiency on practices that improve student learning growth, emphasis should be on those strategies that have a high effect size.

8 We Heard Your ConcernsIn teachers requested that the following three documents be merged into one.Instructional Focus CalendarsPacing GuidesCurriculum MapsAdministrators gave input stating it wasdifficult for them to carry three differentdocuments on classroom visits.
9 A LIVING DOCUMENT Still a work in process Teachers and administrators are requested to assist with the process.The curriculum mapping process started in The documents have yearly been refined and retooled. This year we included transitions for CCSS and PARCC.
10 A LIVING DOCUMENT Teacher writing teams assisted with the process. Blue prints went through a vetting processWe are in the process of blending the Common Core Standards into the blue prints. In K-1 are solely based on the Common Core Standards.
11 STILL A WORK IN PROCESSCurriculum Blue Prints have been released for all tested areas.Currently released on the IntranetIn the future they will also be released on the Internet.
12 STILL A WORK IN PROCESSSchools are strongly encouraged to use the Curriculum Blue Prints.We value your expert eye as you use these documents and look forward to your continued input on the Curriculum Blue Prints.
