Presentation Transcript

Sample School will increase the CPI in Grade 4 Math MCAS from 37.7 in 2005 to 48.5 in 2007 and 51.9 in 2008 by increasing the number of student who score proficient from 1.59 % ( 1 students) in 2005 to 4.59% (approximately 3 students) in 2007 and to 9.1% (approximately 6 student ) in 2008 and by decreasing the number of student in Warning/failing from 55.2% (37 students) in 2005 to 34.8% (approximately 23 students) in 2007 and to 25.8 % (approximately 17 students) in 2008.

Student Learning Objective: All students will know and be able to successfully complete multi-step math problem, in particular problems with fractions and decimals, in all five math strands (i.e., number sense, measurement, geometry, patterns/relations/functions, data/statistics/probability) (MA Math Framework Problem Solving).

- Did not enter data for all years
- Did not ensure that the targets were met
- Did not use the new format (January 17, 2005)
- Did not use last known data as the baseline

Worksheet 2 B

Student Performance Goal

GUIDING QUESTION: What specific changes in student performance do you plan to make?

Student group: All Content Area: Math

Student Performance Goal Statement:

XXX School will increase the CPI in Grade 4 Math MCAS from ##.# in 2005 to ##.# in 2007 and ##.# in 2008 by increasing the number of student who score proficient/advanced from ##.# % ( # students) in 2005 to ##.# % ( approximately # students) in 2007 and to ##.# % ( approximately # students) in 2008 and by decreasing the number of student in Warning/failing from ##.# % ( # students) in 2005 to ##.# % (approximately # students) in 2007 and to ##.# % ( approximately # students) in 2008

Common errors on Student Learning Objectives:

- Did not use the format
- Did not reference MA Frameworks
- Did not append additional data for triangulation

Worksheet 3 C

STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES

GUIDING QUESTION:Based on your analysis, what skills and knowledge are students unable to demonstrate?

Student Group: All

Student Performance Goal Content Area: Math

Sample School will increase the CPI in Grade 4 Math MCAS from 37.7 in 2005 to 48.5 in 2007 and 51.9 in 2008 by increasing the number of student who score proficient from 1.59 % ( 1 students) in 2005 to 4.59% (approximately 3 students) in 2007 and to 9.1% (approximately 6 student ) in 2008 and by decreasing the number of student in Warning/failing from 55.2% (37 students) in 2005 to 34.8% (approximately 23 students) in 2007 and to 25.8 % (approximately 17 students) in 2008.

Student Learning Objectives

All students will know and be able to successfully complete multi-step math problem, in particular problems with fractions and decimals, in all five math strands (i.e., number sense, measurement, geometry, patterns/relations/functions, data/statistics/probability) (MA Math Framework Problem Solving, 3.N.3, 3.N.4, 4.N.3, 4.N.4, 4.N.5).

When making important educational decisions you will need to triangulate with at least 2 additional sources of data-

Append copies of this additional data to the SIP

Triangulation Data (at least 2 additional data sources to support this student learning objective is of concern at the school) -

- Multi-step math problems on the Step-Up Quarterly Assessment scored less than 50% correct (Note: % correct is lower for multi-step problems with fractions (35%) and also with decimals (40%))
- Multi-step problems on chapter tests were 8 out of 10 times incorrect.

Common errors on Root Causes:

- Did not focus on the core realm- curriculum, instruction and assessment
- Did not utilize the cause question sheets provided
- Did not prioritize
- Did not support with data

Causal Analysis

SAMPLE- Math Elementary

- Worksheet 5A
- SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN-IMPROVEMENT OBJECTIVES (IO)
- GUIDING QUESTION: Based on the causes of students' lack of knowledge and skills, what experiences do students need in order to reach the learning objective?
- Student Performance Goal:
- Sample School will increase the CPI in Grade 4 Math MCAS from 37.7 in 2005 to 48.5 in 2007 and 51.9 in 2008 by increasing the number of student who score proficient from 1.59 % ( 1 students) in 2005 to 4.59% (approximately 3 students) in 2007 and to 9.1% (approximately 6 student ) in 2008 and by decreasing the number of student in Warning/failing from 55.2% (37 students) in 2005 to 34.8% (approximately 23 students) in 2007 and to 25.8 % (approximately 17 students) in 2008.
- Student Learning Objective: All students will know and be able to successfully complete multi-step math problem, in particular problems with fractions and decimals, in all five math strands (i.e., number sense, measurement, geometry, patterns/relations/functions, data/statistics/probability) (MA Math Framework Problem Solving).
- Root Causes:
- 6 /10 of math classes have not completely implemented the grade level Math Instruction Guide's (MIG) scope and sequence utilizing proper pacing, in particular fractions and decimals were not covered
- 10% of math instruction time has an emphasis on multi-step math problems in the open response format but few problems are graded with a rubric and no evidence is available that student use exemplars of rubric graded work to determine how their work could be improved.

Common errors on Improvement Objectives:

- Are not directly related to student learning objective(s)
- Does not directly address the cause of low student performance
- Does not describe the learning experience you want students to have
- Does not indicate which students (i.e., all, k-2, 3-5, grade 2)
- Does not indicate how often (i.e., daily, weekly)
- Does not clearly indicate what will be different from current practices
