  • OBJECTIVE/OUTCOMES

    PARTICIPANTS WILL:

    • HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF USING DATA TO IMPROVE LEARNING

    • HAVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF USING DATA TO IMPROVE TEACHING

    • BE GIVEN PRACTICAL TIME SAVING STRATEGIES TO USE IMMEDIATELY IN THE CLASSROOM

    • EDUCATORS WILL SEE INCREASED STUDENT GROWTH AND ENGAGEMENT

  • THREE FORMS OF HELPFUL DATA

    •CUMULATIVE FILES •USEFUL ASSESSMENTS (FORMAL AND INFORMAL) •STANDARDIZED TESTS •CLASSROOM

  • CUMULATIVE FILES

    •YOU MUST MAKE TIME TO READ THEM •THEY HAVE IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND THE

    MAKE-UP OF YOUR STUDENTS

    •START BEFORE STUDENTS ARRIVE

  • STANDARDIZED TESTS

    •MOST OFTEN USED ALONE BUT IT DOES NOT TELL THE WHOLE STORY •CONFERENCE WITH STUDENTS •HELP STUDENT MAKE REALISTIC GOALS •HELPS WITH GROUPING

  • CLASSROOM OBSERVATION

    •LOW STAKES ASSESSMENT ( EXIT TICKETS, WARM-UPS, THUMBS UP- THUMBS-DOWN)

    •ALLOWS YOU TO COLLECT DATA IMMEDIATELY ( WHOSE NOT GETTING IT) •BE THE GUIDE ON THE SIDE •CREATE A CONSTRUCTIVIST, STUDENT DIRECTED CLASSROOM ( NO FRONT

    TO THE CLASS)

  • Assessments can be a vital

    component in our efforts to

    improve education. But as long as

    we use them only as a means to

    rank schools and students, we will

    miss their most powerful benefits. Thomas Guskey, 2003

  • When teachers' classroom assessments

    become an integral part of the

    instructional process and a central

    ingredient in their efforts to help

    students learn, the benefits of

    assessment for both students and

    teachers will be boundless. Thomas Guskey, 2003

    • DON’T JUST RETEACH THE SAME LESSON LOUDER

    • UTILIZE OTHER RESOURCES AND TRAINING BOTH ELECTRONIC AND HUMAN

    • MANIPULATIVES STILL WORK IN UPPER GRADES

    • UTILIZE SMALL GROUPS AND MATH TALKS

  • THINGS YOU CAN DO •PLAN, PLAN AND PLAN •INVOLVE PARENTS EARLY •TUTORING •KNOW YOUR RESOURCES ( TECHNOLOGY, COACHES, MANIPULATIVES, ETC) •KAGAN STRATEGIES TO HELP STUDENTS WORK TOGETHER AND USE

    THE PROTOCOL FOR DATA SHEET

  • WAYS TO ENGAGE HIGH ACHIEVERS JOSEPH

    RENZULLI

    • SET UP A COMMITTEE

    • ENCOURAGE VARIED GROUPING

    • ENABLE ACCELERATION

    • ADAPT ADVANCED CURRICULUM SEE PROJECT M3 MENTORING

    MATHEMATICAL MINDS

    1. Adopt other National Programs

    Odyssey of the Mind

    Future Problem Solvers

    National History Day

    Gamestar Mechanic

    2. Offer Professional Development

    3. Encourage Open Ended Assignment

    4. Aim for School Wide enrichment (all students should

    be exposed to authentic learning)
