  3. Regional Meeting Objectives • Provide information for a successful start to the new fiscal year • Define the PICP process and the overarching goal • Finalize sub-goal selection for local programs • Review data relevant toward strategy selection • Create action plans for goal completion • Develop measures of program success

  4. Expected Outcome • The goal is for every local program to leave the regional meeting with a solid draft of their FY 2015 PICP. • Draft plans should be shared with individual program staff members before submission to able-grants@regents.state.oh.us .

  5. NRS Cohort Definitions, Assessment, Distance Education, Professional Development and Learning Disabilities (LD) FY 2015 Policy Clarifications

  6. NRS Cohort Definition The clarification impacts the cohorts “obtained employment” and “retained employment”.

  7. Assessment Approved Assessments: • WorkKeys and CASAS Employability (ECS) may not be used for National Reporting System (NRS) reporting • CASAS Life and Work is still an NRS approved test

  8. Assessment Continuing students in ABLELink: • Test scores may be rolled forward and reported in ABLELink for the new fiscal year. Enter a copy of the most recent assessment as a new progress record with the original scores and a date of 07/01/2014. • The first assessment of each fiscal year becomes the initial assessment, although ABLELink will continue to refer to assessments rolled forward as progress.

  9. Assessment Student initial placement: • If the student scores at the highest scale score for level 6 completion in all subject areas at placement, he/she is not eligible for ABLE services. This includes students with or without a high school credential.

  10. Assessment Scale scores: • Test scores are most reliable when they fall near the middle of the distribution of scores. • Retest as soon as possible if the scores are outside the standard error of measure – either too high or too low

  11. Confidentiality/ABLELink Personally-identifiable information (PII) • Records may be transmitted electronically using secure (encrypted) transmission methods. Data containing PII cannot be stored in cloud storage such as Google Docs, Dropbox, iCloud, or OneDrive.

  12. Confidentiality/ABLELink • Data stewards responsible for PII or other institutional data should designate where sensitive information should be stored.  Generally, this is in approved folders on the agency’s secured server. • Communicate this policy to all of your ABLE staff and partners. Fiscal agents are responsible for ensuring confidentiality of records.

  13. Distance Education

  14. Distance Education • Programs wishing to recommend distance learning curriculum for approval may submit a New Curriculum Approval Application New Curriculum Approval Application is on the web at www.ohiohighered.org/able/reference

  15. Professional Development • New Staff Orientation (NSO), New Administrator Orientation (NAO) and New Teacher Orientation (NTO) – online - are currently under revision. • Assessment Fundamentals is a required course for new administrators and new teachers and any new or existing staff prior to administering assessments. • Trainings for specific assessments (TABE 9&10, TABE CLAS-E, BEST PLUS, CASAS Life and Work) are required for all staff (new or existing) prior administering assessments.

  16. Professional Development • Distance Education (DE) Basics is required of all new administrators and Distance Education (DE) 101 is required of all DE teachers. • Intro to Learning to Achieve is required for new administrators and new teachers. • Teachers’ Academies will be held fall of 2014 and spring of 2015 with dates and locations to be determined.

  17. Learning Disabilities (LD) • There is no longer an LD Portal or an LD Directory. The LD Plan has been redesigned as a fillable PDF form and the LD Guide has been updated as a separate document, both of which are available at www.ohiohighered.org/able/reference . • Requests for services regarding LD support should be emailed to OhioPDN@literacy.kent.edu. Be sure to include “LD” in the subject line. • The “free” psychological assessments are no longer available due to marginal utilization.

  20. SMART Goal Setting Specific Is the goal unambiguous, significant, precise, and sustainable? Measurable How will you demonstrate and evaluate the extent to which the goal has been met? Achievable Can the goal be accomplished? Is it appropriate, agreed upon, attainable and actionable? Relevant Are the goals feasible, rational, practical, and important to my overall organization? What are the timelines, milestones, deadlines, and delivery dates? Timely

  21. A snapshot of the local program data Preliminary FY 2014 data

  22. Evaluation OF FY 2014 GOALS

  23. SMART Goal Evaluation • Assist teachers in using technology on a weekly basis to support instruction.

  24. SMART Goal Evaluation • Increase the number of classes structured as managed enrollment to at least 3 classes

  26. SMART Goal Evaluation • To increase student persistence to meet or exceed all EFLs at the acceptable level.

  27. SMART Goal Evaluation • Students in all program classes will practice the skills required for success in post-secondary education.

  28. SMART Goal Evaluation • Increase student persistence by 14% over FY2013 reported data for an overall average of 57 hours per student by the close of the current fiscal grant year (June 30,2014).

  29. Think-Pair-Share • Do your goals meet the criteria of a SMART Goal? • Is there opportunity for refinement to include the elements of a SMART goal?

  30. Smart Goals and the PICP

  31. Our Process Definitions • Overarching goal – Broad vision for the process, the mission • Goals/Sub-Goals – General statements of what the program seeks to accomplish; outcomes based • Strategies – Plan for accomplishing goals • Action Steps – Actual steps that must occur for successful completion of the goals

  32. ABLE Overarching Goal • Increase student transitions to post-secondary education by 10% over FY 2014 • Successful completion of the overarching goal is measured by achieving an additional 6 students in this measure (69 students) reported in the desk review of FY 2015

  33. Let’s reflect • How do you believe your goals contribute to the overarching goal? • What led you to believe that selecting this goal will help you achieve your overarching goal?
