Integrating Data Into the Decision-Making Equation. - 1 views

  • As school districts embark on the change process, they face many barriers to the adoption of data-driven decision making. School district leaders have not embraced continuous improvement. Priorities are not clear and goals are not tied to measurable objectives. Data is not collected uniformly between organizations and over time. Outdated technology cannot be used effectively. Educators lack training to define data requirements and apply data. Stakeholders do not trust the data collected or how it will be used.
  • Reports need to be timely, tied to objectives, and available to people with the responsibility and ability to act on them. Data reports that show data in different ways such as tables, charts, graphs, and trends enable more people to access and understand the information. Some of the decisions that might be made with data reports include: Tracking student achievement for diagnosis and placement Changing beliefs and attitudes that all students can learn Guiding teacher professional development Linking interventions to results Using data to create school improvement plans and assess progress Allocating district resources
  • The IT infrastructure underpinning most data-driven decision making systems requires a significant investment in hardware, software, implementation, and maintenance.
  •  
    The successful integration of data into a district's decision-making process requires both a culture of change and a data management system to support change. Nice chart of progress quadrants included in the discussion.

Have You Ever Wondered About the Use of Multiple Measures in Math? - 0 views

  •  
    One of the current buzzwords in use in the state of California and across the nation is multiple measures. But what does this phrase really mean for students, teachers, schools, and districts? Quite simply by multiple measures we mean the use of a variety of assessment formats that allow educators to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their students so that the curriculum can be adjusted to meet the needs of those students.

Finding Balance: Assessment in the Middle School Classroom [Stiggins] - 0 views

  •  
    Most teachers routinely develop and communicate to students and parents the various plans and policies that govern the middle school classroom. Usually, this includes a classroom management plan, a grading policy, an instructional plan linked to state and district curriculum standards, a homework policy, and perhaps an intervention plan detailing what will happen for students if they fall behind.\n\nRarely do teachers include a classroom assessment plan. Most teachers typically don't develop this plan because it has been our history to see assessment as a series of isolated testing events: tests given at the end of an instructional unit or time period, like the end of a semester. However, as it turns out, students achieve at higher levels when teachers think more deeply about how their classroom assessments fit into their larger instructional environment.

Measuring Student Progress: How Do You Develop Reliable Assessments? - 0 views

  •  
    Assessment Guru Grant Wiggins on Measuring Student Progress. All the talk about changing the way we measure student progress raises important questions. What do we mean by assessment - as opposed to grading? How do you design reliable assessments? Should you "teach to" standardized tests? How can you evaluate an individual performance on a cooperative project? And how do we explain it all to parents? To get answers, Instructor senior editor Meg Bozzone interviewed assessment expert Grant Wiggins, president of the nonprofit Center on Learning Assessment and School Structure (CLASS).

Boosting Test Scores: Principal Strategies That Work - 0 views

  •  
    Did your students' test scores rise last year? If you're like many of our Principal Files team members, you've witnessed an increase in scores over the past several years. Seldom is it by chance that those scores have risen; it's the result of a concerted effort by an entire staff -- an effort that is very likely to include extensive data analysis, focused teacher training, frequent monitoring of student progress, practice testing throughout the year, student and staff incentives, and other strategies.

Professional Learning Communities - 0 views

  •  
    On-the-fly conversations regarding students occur on a regular basis among teachers. They have many positive components: conversations are student centered, teachers are supportive of each other and they meet on their own time. However, they are limited and are subject to the interruptions of daily school events, and teacher collaboration is left to chance. These teachers need administrative support to improve the likelihood that their efforts will raise student achievement to a significant degree.

  • The researchers suggest that school leaders foster a sense of shared responsibility, engage veteran teachers in the induction of new teachers and in their own professional growth, and earmark resources to support collaborative planning, mentoring, and classroom observations.
  • To determine the relationship between teacher collaboration and student achievement, the researchers used reading and math achievement scores for 2,536 fourth-graders, controlling for school context and student characteristics such as prior achievement. They found a positive relationship between teacher collaboration and differences among schools in mathematics and reading achievement.
  •  
    Teacher collaboration and professional learning communities are frequently mentioned in articles and reports on school improvement. Schools and teachers benefit in a variety of ways when teachers work together. A small but growing body of evidence suggests a positive relationship between teacher collaboration and student achievement.
