Proficient: Student scoring between 240-258 scaled score

Advanced: Student scoring above 260 scaled score

Composite Performance Index (CPI): assigns 100, 75, 50, 25, or 0 points to each student based how close they came to scoring proficient or advanced. The CPI is calculated by dividing the total number of points by the number of students in the group.

Grades 6 8 ela action plan
Grades 6-8 ELA: Action Plan

  • Fully implement writing curriculum units aligned to the MA Curriculum Frameworks for grades 6-8.

  • Implement tiered system of supports using literacy data. Implement best practices to support student needs as identified by assessments.

  • Focus on the identification of main and supporting ideas while reading informational texts using school wide protocols for annotation of text, two-column notes, and summary writing.

  • Employ open response questions across the content areas to provide further practice for this writing skill.


Grade 6 8 ela action plan
Grade 6-8 ELA: Action Plan

  • Implement two-column note-taking strategy school wide to increase non-fiction reading across all content areas.

  • Use dialectical journals in ELA with narrative and informational texts to increase student/text engagement.

  • Use literature circles for classroom reading to increase student discussion about text.

  • Increase amount of nonfiction text read across all content areas.

Grade 6-8 Math

  • Grade 7 saw an increase in the % correct for short answer and Grade 6 saw an increase in the % correct for open response questions from 2012 to 2013.

  • Decreases in Grade 6,7, and 8 correspond to decreases at the state. No values were below the state.


Grade 6 8 math6
Grade 6-8 Math

  • The number of Proficient and Advanced students in all grades increased or remained the same for all grades.

  • In 7th grade, students scored above the state on every domain and strand most of which were at least 3 points above the state.


Grade 6 8 math strengths
Grade 6-8 Math: Strengths

  • Improvement in several domains and clusters.


Grade 6 8 math areas of need
Grade 6-8 Math: Areas of Need

  • Several domains/clusters remain areas of need.


Grade 6 8 math areas of need1
Grade 6-8 Math: Areas of Need

  • In 6th grade, fewer than 50% of students answered the one question on multiplication and division of fractions correctly.

  • In 6th grade, the percentage of students scoring correctly on the short answer questions decreased.

  • In 7th and 8th grade, the percentage of students scoring correctly on the open response questions decreased.


Grades 6 8 math action plan
Grades 6-8 Math: Action Plan

  • Implement math EnVision program in grade 6 aligned to new Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. Provide professional development and support implementation of the program.

  • All grades will incorporate additional practice with open response and short answer questions and provide students with feedback.


Grade 6 8 action plan
Grade 6-8: Action Plan

  • Intervention classes have been created to provide students with targeted intervention on specific foundation skills, such as multiplying and dividing fractions and geometry

  • During these classes, use the Assessment and Reporting Online System (ARO) program to identify specific foundational skills that need development. Use the data to prioritize areas of need, monitor student’ progress, and measure student growth.

  • Implement Math Navigator Common Core. This program is broken into 26 modules of foundational and algebraic skills students need to develop proficiency with in order to be successful in math.


Grades 6 8 math action plan1
Grades 6-8 Math: Action Plan

  • Provide professional development and support implementation of the Intervention program.

  • Fully align our curriculum to the new MA 2011 frameworks.

  • Analyze the MCAS data as a department to identify areas of strength and weakness to inform curriculum and instruction.

  • Use new textbook resources in grade 6 to support the implementation of the MA 2011 curriculum.


Science
Science

Proficient: Student scoring between 240-258 scaled score

Advanced: Student scoring above 260 scaled score

Composite Performance Index (CPI): assigns 100, 75, 50, 25, or 0 points to each student based how close they came to scoring proficient or advanced. The CPI is calculated by dividing the total number of points by the number of students in the group.




Grade 8 science strengths
Grade 8 Science: Strengths

  • A modest increase in CPI for all students which represents a trend over the past five years from 70.6 to 78.7.

  • The strands of earth/space science and technology/engineering are strengths when compared to physical and life sciences.


Grade 8 science areas of need

  • The CPI for students with high needs including those with special needs and those from low income families decreased.

  • While a modest improvement was seen in the percent of points earned on open response, this remains an area of need.


Grade 8 science action plan
Grade 8 Science: Action Plan

  • Science and Technology Department members will analyze the MCAS data to identify areas of strength and weakness to inform curriculum and instruction.

  • Provide direct instruction to students in identifying key ideas and supporting details from text and responding to written prompts that are content-specific.

  • Utilize a computer-based review program throughout the school year during 8th grade to reinforce topics covered in 6th and 7th grades.

  • Modify the exploratory block to provide students with increased opportunities for reading, writing, and research.


Grade 6 8 science action plan
Grade 6-8 Science: Action Plan

  • Teachers will pilot new textbook resources in advance of purchasing new resources once the new science standards are released.

  • Provide professional development for teachers in the scientific and engineering practices while planning for the full implementation of the new science standards beginning during the school year of 2014.

  • Provide professional development and support for teachers to increase instructional strategies for teaching students from a variety of backgrounds (DCAP).
