And Other Important Stuff
Tacoma School District
Use the Excel Template provided and import the student roster to Teaching Strategies GOLD
Make sure you include SSIDs
Teachers need the student rosters loaded before they can record WaKIDS data
At a certain point the teachers should be responsible for adding and editing students (don’t delete a student)
We send them directions and ask them to get help from fellow teachers
Student transfers from class to class or school to school (within district) are done at the district level
Audit your teacher and student class lists
Last year’s WaKIDS records should be “archived” (Teaching Strategies takes care of this in the summer prior to the next school year).
Check the progress of your teachers…Using Assessment Status Report (under “Checkpoint” tab on Teaching Strategies site)
Notify principals and teachers on a weekly basis (or more) regarding progress
Once the teachers have completed collecting data through Teaching Strategies GOLD you can look at your results with the Snapshot Report
