### What do all these numbers mean?

Columbia Elementary

Data Night - Winter

Winter Data Night

• THANK YOU for coming – being here shows your dedication to your child’s educational success

• Our goal tonight is to have you leave understanding where your child is academically for his/her grade level expectations

• Data can be messy and hard to understand sometimes

• We will try our best to make sure you know how your child scored on the mid year assessments

• As a school, we take this data on each kid and make instructional decisions to move them forward in learning

• If you would like to meet and discuss your child further, please sign up before leaving tonight and the teacher will get in contact with you

• Is a benchmark assessment given to all students (K-2) in the fall, winter and spring.

• It measures early literacy skills and reading fluency

• LNF=Letter Naming Fluency

• LSF=Letter Sound Fluency

• PSF=Phoneme Segmentation Fluency

• NWF=Nonsense Word Fluency

• RCBM=Reading-Curriculum Based Measurement

• Given to Kindergarten students to measure how many letters they can name in 1 minute

• Letters are randomly mixed up on the test, so it is not just reading a-z over and over

• Given to Kindergarten in the winter and 1st grade students to measure how many letter sounds they can name in 1 minute

• Letters are randomly mixed up on the test

• The kindergarten target for winter is 27

• The 1st grade target for winter is 48 sounds in 1 minute

• Given to Kindergarten in the winter and 1st grade students to measure how many sounds they can segment in 1 minute

• Students hear a word and have to say out loud all the different sounds in that word

• For students who are already readers, sometimes this score does not accurately reflect their ability

• The kindergarten target for winter is 31

• The 1st grade target for winter is 52 letter sounds in 1 minute

• Given to Kindergarten in the spring and 1st grade students to measure how many nonsense words they can read in 1 minute

• The 1st grade target for winter is 55 nonsense word sounds in 1 minute

• They use nonsense words to avoid the students knowing the words by sight and to assess how they decode each word

• If you have a 1st grade students who is reading and comprehending at a high level they may not do so well on this test. We do further testing to determine areas to focus on with these students.

• Nonsense words only measure short vowel sounds

• Given to 1st grade (starting in the spring) and 2nd grade students.

• We also give it to 3rd-5th grade students who are reading below grade level.

• Students are asked to read 3 different passages for 1 minute each

• This test is measuring how many words a student can read in 1 minute

• We call this their reading fluency

• The winter target score for 2nd grade is 89 words per minute

• The winter target score for 3rd grade is 112 words per minute

• The winter target score for 4th grade is 126 words per minute

• The winter target score for 5th grade is 140 words per minute

• The DRA2 is used by teachers to systematically observe, record and evaluate changes in student reading performance over time

• The DRA2 is given to all students in the winter.

• The DRA2 measures accuracy, comprehension and fluency

• The winter target for Kinder. is 2

• The winter target for 1st grade is 10

• The winter target for 2nd grade is 20

• The winter target for 3rd grade is 34

• The winter target for 4th grade is 40

• The winter target for 5th grade is 50

DRA Level 34 Sample

• The Scholastic Reading Inventory is given to all students in grades 3, 4, and 5three times per year.

• It is an electronic reading comprehension test that deals with a lot of inferencing type questions.

• Inferencing are those questions that aren’t directly answered in the text, but require some self knowledge

• 3rd grade scores should be between 500-800

• 4th grade scores should be between 600-900

• 5th grade scores should be between 700-1000

• We are going to walk you through the process of getting online to see your child’s math progress up to this point in the year.

• Each student is given the Words Their Way Spelling Inventory 3 times each year

• This test measures each students’ developmental spelling stage so that we can individualize phonics, spelling,and vocabulary instruction

• Emergent Stage- pre K to middle 1st grade

• Letter Name-Alphabetic Stage- K to early 3rd grade

• Within Word Pattern Stage- 1stto middle 4th grade

• Syllables and Affixes Stage- 3rdto 8th grade

• Derivational Relations Stage- 5thto 12th grade

• Each of these stages are then broken down into Early, Middle, Late

• We believe at Columbia it is extremely important for you to understand where your child is academically.

• Grades sometimes can make understanding your child’s academic ability foggy, especially if you have a student who is behind but works hard to correct things and fix mistakes.

• Our assessments help us differentiate for your child. Based on what your child is showing us they can do is how we take the next steps in the classroom with instruction.

• Whether your child is struggling in one area, many areas, or meeting grade level expectations – there are ways you can help at home.

• Tonight you’ll receive a one page tip list of activities you can do with your child if they are struggling with reading skills.

• Your child should be reading EVERY NIGHT. If you are needing resources or help of what this looks like in your home, please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Mwangior the classroom teacher.

• In addition, we hope you engage in our online math curriculum. You can access lessons your child completes in class to review at home.
