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



  • 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

    “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 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




    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 need 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 need interventions?

    • 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 need interventions?

    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?
