  1. Using technology to assess and support Small Learning CommunitiesFacilitated by: Giselle Martin-Kniep, Jennifer Borgioli and Aaron Turner

  2. If you could gain one thing from this conference, what would it be?

  3. Session outcomes Review and discuss anchors and exemplars associated with an SLC rubric Discuss ways in which schools and individuals interact with an SLC rubric Examine ways in which an SLC rubric and wiki can support annual review and accountability processes Explore implications for schools

  4. Guiding questions How do schools currently measure their effectiveness? How can technology support schools’ self assessment and improvement? Why bother?

  5. Agenda

  6. Our evolution • Widespread access to populated rubric with artifacts • School reliance on argumentation and persuasion to establish worth • Rubric development with multiple stakeholders • Rubric field-test and piloting • Professional learning for a leadership cadre

  7. Key Assumptions Practitioners and teachers need metrics to assess where they are in the school improvement journey… and where they need to go There is extraordinary expertise in the schools that needs to be shared across SLC’s and schools Helps to keep everything in a central location

  8. Different Words, Same Goal

  9. NYC DOE SLC Wiki

  10. First: Assessing your school

  11. Element Rubric

  12. Assessing your school • Walk to either posters with Elements 1 or 2. • Consider the language of the rubric. Which level best “fits” your school? • Place your school or SLC’s name or initials on a Post-It. Place your Post-It on the appropriate rubric level (if more than one SLC, rate only one) • Be ready to answer the questions: • What assumptions inform your thinking? • What evidence do you have to support the placement of your Post-It?

  13. What is an artifact of practice that shows something you value?

  14. Shifting from…

  15. To… Photographs Video files Student work Sound files

  16. Example of self-assessment

  17. artifact + process statement

  18. The power of artifacts: Beyond the written word

  19. PowerPoints Google docs Voki Videos Photographs Scanned documents If it can be captured electronically (photographed, scanned, recorded) …. It can be an artifact

  27. Second Task Review Rubric elements 3 and 4 Use a pencil or highlighter to determine the state of your school or SLC on one of the elements. How does the rubric enable your school or SLC to identify next steps in its continued development?

  28. Each SLC completes a Scholarship Report for each student. This report is used as the core for analysis of student performance and learning. We are working on incorporating more and diverse measures to more accurately capture student learning.

  29. The SLC teachers must follow a point system in their classes as a guide for students for them to monitor their academic progress, discuss social and behavioral progress like their goals and how they can achieve them or improve their grade. The SLC teachers must articulate their point system as a basis to measure students’ performance in terms of their tests, classwork, homework and projects. This can also serve as a guide of students to monitor their own academic progress during the marking period.

  30. The SLC’s have adopted a multiple measure approach to assessment, teaching, and learning. The diagram documents the flow of the instructional and assessment progress. Student data are collected through multiple measures and stored in both in an in-house data warehouse and student portfolios.

  31. There is always more to a rubric.. What else do you value about rigorous curriculum and instruction that is not on the rubric?

  32. The importance of synergy between outside support and inside capacity

  33. Most valuable activities as external partner… • Feedback • Technical support • Defining an artifact • Annotating an artifact • Supporting self-assessment • Neutrality

  34. Caveats Ease of use Quality control Safety

  35. The power of artifacts to anchor judgment

  36. Questions for you How would a wiki like the one we showed you support your school and/or SLCs? What might you store in it? Share?

  37. The work ahead
