Everything an intern needs to know about the impact on student learning project

Review the Literature

You will need background information on your question, and a review of existing sources is great for this purpose.

One good source of information is general books on teaching, often available through the library, university faculty, or mentor teacher.

Another excellent source is the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) database, which indexes teaching-related publications of all types. You can search the database at http://eric.edu.gov

The What Works Clearinghouse is another excellent resource for finding evidence-based interventions for working with students. You can search the website at http://ies.ed.gov/ncee/wwc/

Or visit the Salisbury University’s library website. You can access numerous education databases that will connect you to thousands of education resources. www.salisbury.edu/library

All of the information gathered from these sources will help refine your plan of action for your student

Develop a plan for action

Develop A Plan for Action

  • What are the selected instructional strategies that you are going to put in place to support students in reaching the academic goal?

YOUR TURN – In a small group or with a partner, take some time to look at some sample SLO’s from the Maryland Department of Education. What kinds of strategies are included in the SLO’s? What kind of additional strategies can you think of?


Baseline and growth target data

Baseline and Growth Target Data

  • Examples of Types of Measures/Assessments

    • Commercially developed and validated measures aligned with the standards

    • Criterion-referenced tests, inventories, and screeners

    • District common benchmark assessment, end of course exams

    • Authentic measures to document performance

    • School or teacher-developed approved measures

YOUR TURN – In a small group or with a partner, take some time to look at some sample SLO’s data. Pay careful attention to how the SLO’s have different goals or targets? What kind of growth target do you think you would like to use with your Student Impact Study?


Important question

Important Question!

An intern's Student Impact Study COULD be very, very similar to the SLO that their teacher is using.

There just might need to be some tweaking when it comes to how “growth” will be shown.

The main reason is that mentor teachers might be using standardized tests as things as their data points, and SU interns might need to use other assessments. This is because the data has to be collected pretty quickly for the Student Impact Study project. Interns might not be able to wait on the end of term/year assessments.

So that's why it COULD be the same problem/goal. . . .it just might be slightly tweaked!

Can my “Student Impact Study” be the same as my mentor’s “SLO?”


Gallery walk poster final product

Gallery Walk – Poster Final Product

  • The Gallery Walk Poster Template is available in MyClasses.

  • Use this file to create your final product that will be displayed at the Gallery Walk.

  • Every intern MUST create one of these files that can be uploaded into LiveText. This is how your Student Impact Study will be graded.

  • Final poster dimensions = 48 inches wide by 36 inches tall.

48 inches

Printing Option 1 - Your PowerPoint file can either be printed through the Salisbury University IT Department (TETC 352) or you can take your file to an office supply type store (ex., Staples) and print it yourself. This will create one “poster” that can adhered to a display board for the Gallery Walk.

Printing Option 2 – You may take the information from your PowerPoint file and separate it out to print on your own home printer. Then these individual pieces could be adhered to a display board for the Gallery Walk.
