Purposes of assessment building your assessment plan

Purposes of Assessment: Building Your Assessment Plan

Cadre 8 Initial Training

10/9/12


Where we ve been

Where We’ve Been

  • Helped to identify your standards of practice for your core instruction.


Where we re going

Where We’re Going

  • We are now going to help you to understand the purposes of assessment.


Targets

Targets

  • Team members will have a clear understanding of the four purposes of assessment

    • Screening (formative)

    • Progress Monitoring (formative)

    • Diagnostic (formative)

    • Outcome (summative)

  • District Assessment Plan by the end of day 2


  • Develop an assessment plan

    Develop an Assessment Plan


    What assessments are you currently using in your district

    What assessments are you currently using in your district?

    • Take 5 minutes and in your district teams brainstorm a list of all the different assessments your district is currently using

    • Save the list-we will be revisiting it periodically throughout the presentation

    Screening targets

    Screening Targets

    • Build conceptual understanding about universal screeners

      • To develop standards of practice for universal screening

    • Determine professional development needs for universal screening


    Universal screening standards of practice

    Universal Screening: Standards of Practice


    Purposes of assessment building your assessment plan

    Universal Screening

    “The Bang for the Buck”


    Universal screening tools

    Universal Screening Tools

    Sensitive to growth

    Brief & Easy

    Indicator of overall health

    Equivalent forms!!!

    Frequent

    A universal screener should over-identify students who might need something more!


    What are better skills to screen

    What are “better” skills to screen?

    Basic Skills

    Comprehensive Skills

    Not finite

    Vocabulary

    Comprehension

    • Finite

      • Phonemic awareness

      • Decoding/phonics

      • Fluency


    What are some commonly used screening tools

    What are some commonly used screening tools?


    What are not good screening tools

    What are NOT good screening tools?

    * when not administered and scored in a standardized and reliable way, or checked for consistency of multiple probes


    Why give universal screeners

    Why give Universal Screeners?

    1. To determine the health of the core

    • Make instructional changes to improve

      core instruction

      2. To identify students who need additional instructional support

  • Are staff using the screening data for BOTH these reasons?


  • 1 are staff using screening data to determine the health of the core

    1) Are staff using screening data to determine the health of the core?

    School-wide (100%) grade level meetings

    • Fall, winter, spring (following screening)

      Outcome: Increase overall achievement

    • what to teach

    • how to teach


    Strong core instruction

    Strong core instruction


    Weak core instruction

    Weak Core Instruction


    Setting criteria schoolwide meetings

    Setting Criteria: Schoolwide Meetings

    Do you have criteria around how to know if your core instruction is effective?


    2 are staff using screening data to identify students who need interventions

    2) Are staff using screening data to identify students who need interventions?

    • How are these decisions made?

      • Are they unbiased?

        Do you have criteria to determine which students need interventions?


    Setting criteria identifying students for interventions

    Setting Criteria: Identifying Students for Interventions

    What data do you use?

    How many students can be supported?

    What materials do you have?

    How many staff have been trained on the interventions?

    Questions to think about screeners

    Questions to Think About: Screeners

    • Who will administer the screeners?

    • Who will train the screeners?

    • Who will prepare materials?

    • Who will organize materials at the school?

    • Where will the data go?

    • Who will organize the data and present it to teaching teams?

    • How will fidelity of administration be checked?


    Troubleshooting screeners

    Troubleshooting: Screeners

    Is the system sustainable over time?

    • Do staff trust and use the data?

      • “it’s all about the numbers”

      • “it will be used to evaluate my instruction”

  • How will you communicate the decisions that you have made about Universal Screeners in your district?

  • How will you monitor the decisions you have made?

    Diagnostic

    Diagnostic

    Answer the question…

    Why?


    Diagnostic assessments may include

    Diagnostic assessments may include:

    • Quick Phonics Screener

  • Survey Level Assessments

  • Error Analysis or Running Records

  • Any formal or informal assessment that answers the question:

    • Why is the student having a problem?


  • Diagnostic assessment questions

    Diagnostic Assessment Questions

    “Why is the student not performing at the expected level?”

    “What is the student’s instructional need?”


    We do not use diagnostic data

    We do not use diagnostic data…

    …for all students

    …to monitor progress towards a long-term goal

    …to compare students to each other
