  1. Biology Content and Pacing (Q4) Kirk Nieveen Curriculum Support Specialist Jason Jackson Science Department Chair, Miami Springs SHS

  2. Agenda • Welcome and Updates • Data Analysis - Thinkgate: Just the basics Please • How to use your data for instruction • Developing intervention and remediation plans • Discovery Education • A quick tour • Getting the most out of District resources • Common Core State Standards • Comprehension Instructional Sequence (CIS) • Claim-Evidence-Reasoning • Argument Driven Inquiry • Reflection

  3. Session Outcomes • Participants will be able to: • Locate, manipulate, and utilize Thinkgate data to improve instruction • Locate and utilize District Science Resources Department of Mathematics and Science

  4. Norms Make sure to be kind to the presenters and give them your full attention, and please be on time Don’t be afraid to ask and share, we are all life-long learners Care for your profession and be kind to others Please remember we are guests at Miami SHS Silence your cell phones and turn off your gaming devices Department of Mathematics and Science

  5. Welcome and Announcements Biology Winter Interim and Thinkgate Login:

  6. Year at a Glance

  7. HOW DO YOU LOG IN? Username: Employee # Password: MiamiDade2013 You will reset your password once logged in. WEBSITE: Department of Mathematics and Science

  8. HOME SCREEN: CLASSES (TEACHERS) TEACHERNAME Period Boxes • provides a separate box for each period • tabs in bottom will display the class roster, assigned teachers, and identification (course codes) • Must select class link to display details about assessments Department of Mathematics and Science

  9. HOME SCREEN: PROFILE (TEACHERS) TEACHER NAME • provides teacher identification information • reset password link • circle graph of students by periods • search for students by last name Department of Mathematics and Science

  10. HOME SCREEN: PLANNING (TEACHERS) TEACHER NAME • provides link of standards specific to subject or select from drop down menu other subjects • drop down menu for NGSSS (Next Generation Sunshine State Standards) or CCNGSS (Common Core Next Generation Sunshine State Standards) • Provides the standards contents for benchmark selected Department of Mathematics and Science

  11. HOME SCREEN: ASSESSMENT (TEACHERS) TEACHER NAME • provides an overview of assessments  district & classroom • click on space ship icon next to assessment name to analyze data • Items, Images, Addendums, Rubrics  To be determined what it is used for Department of Mathematics and Science

  12. HOME SCREEN: REPORTING (TEACHERS) TEACHER NAME • provides a list and % proficient of assessments  state, district & classroom (tabs) • Must click on EXPAND ICON to create reports and analyze data by benchmarks Department of Mathematics and Science

  13. EXPAND ICON: RESULTS ANALYSIS REPORTS TEACHER NAME • Select the criteria that you want to include in your data analysis • Suggestions • Grade • Subject • curriculum • Must click search to finalize your criteria choices • If add demographic criteria can analyze data by gender and ethnic groups Department of Mathematics and Science

  14. RESULTS ANALYSIS TEACHER NAME • Provides district proficiency percentages colored coded for easier interpretation • Provides an overview of the student performance for the district, school, teacher and specific periods or class. • Shows specific data of last data update. • You have three options for student assessment results (see next slide) 2 1 TEACHER NAME 3 Department of Mathematics and Science

  15. STUDENT ASSESSMENT RESULTSBY CLASS • OPTION 1: • Click on arrow next to period • Provides overall student performance, color coded based on district proficiency % (see below) • OPTION 2: • Click on note pad icon • Provides a pop up screen with different report options (next slide) TEACHER NAME TEACHER NAME TEACHER NAME Student names Department of Mathematics and Science

  16. STUDENT ASSESSMENT RESULTS BY CLASS OPTION 3: Click on score next to class. It will open a pop up screen with Report Selection shown below. (Details on next slide) 1 2 Department of Mathematics and Science

  17. REPORT SELECTION: OPTION 3(Available Reports) • Report Card by Students • Score Analysis Report • Standard Analysis • Subgroups by Standards • Test Summary • Administered Test Not Taken students • At Risks • Distractor Analysis • Item Analysis • Mastery • Proficiency Report • Progress Report Department of Mathematics and Science

  18. REPORT SELECTION: AT RISK (STANDARDS BY STUDENT)This report list individual students and the standards they did not master. Can be used for remediation. Can be printed or exported into word Department of Mathematics and Science

  19. REPORT SELECTION: AT RISKStandards by Test, Student • Provides students overall performance on assessment and the number and description of benchmarks that are of concern for each student in the selected period based on selected assessment Department of Mathematics and Science

  20. REPORT SELECTION: AT RISK (various reports are available)Students by Standard report provides list of standards that are of concern and lists students who had low performance on each standard. For Fall IA, teachers should only focus on standards addressed in Quarter 1. It is a great tool for intervention and differentiated instruction Students Students Students Department of Mathematics and Science

  21. REPORT SELECTION: Distractor Analysis: Has option to hide some selection criteria (see row 1). You can organize incorrect answers by grouping them (row 2) (Incorrect answers in red) Department of Mathematics and Science

  22. ITEM ANALYSIS REPORT: Compares class performance to school and district performance Department of Mathematics and Science

  23. REPORT SELECTION: MASTERY Students by Standard Report provides the names and scores of the students that have mastered the tested benchmarks. Department of Mathematics and Science

  24. REPORT SELECTION: PROFICIENCY REPORTProvides class data based on proficiency levels determined by district (color coded: Insufficient, Limited and Satisfactory) Can be printed or exported into excel

  42. Claim, Evidence, Reasoning Source:

  43. The “Why” behind Claim, Evidence, Reasoning (Conclusion Writing) In 2009, NAEP administered TWO types of innovative science assessments that invited students to put their science knowledge into practice: • Hands-on tasks (HOTs) • Interactive computer tasks (ICTs)  How Did US Students Perform? Students Able to Perform Simulated Investigations, Challenged to Explain Conclusions
