“Teachers are thus free to provide students with whatever tools and knowledge their professional judgment and experience identify as most helpful for meeting the goals set out in the Standards.”

~ Introduction to the CCSS

AIS Pk-5

Finding and fixing the gaps

  • Evaluate screening tools and progress monitoring tools
  • Identify ways AIS teacher roles are used throughout the region
  • Examine best practices for questioning and cooperative learning
  • Determining conceptual and fluency weaknesses in our students (through computer and worksheet analyses)
  • Identify strategies that can help strengthen common weak areas
  • Create instructional materials that will review/re-teach the previous learning of common weak areas
  • How is AIS handled in your building?
  • How often do you meet with your students
  • How many students do you have?
  • How would math AIS be made more effective?
screening tools
Screening Tools
  • State Exams
  • Textbook Exams
  • Software
  • Worksheets
progress monitoring

“ Monitor the progress of tier 2, tier 3, and

borderline tier 1 students at least once a

month using grade-appropriate general outcome


Progress Monitoring
  • Dibel-like (short) assessments
  • Static content/questions
  • Formative

“Allow students to chart their progress and to set goals for improvement.”

common practices across countries
Common Practices Across Countries
  • Assessments are part of a tightly integrated system of standards, curriculum, instruction, assessment, and teacher development at the state or national level.
  • Assessments include evidence of actual student performance on challenging tasks that evaluate a wide range of applied skills.
  • Teachers are integrally involved in the development and scoring of assessments (as are college faculty).
  • Assessments are used to inform course grades and provide information to colleges and employers, rather than to determine punishments or sanctions.
  • Assessments are designed to continuously improve teaching and learning.

Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Teaching and Teacher Education, Stanford University

why data driven instruction
Why Data Driven Instruction?
  • Processes involved can help teachers align content to standards.
  • Information can help teachers identify best instructional strategies.
  • Information can help teachers determine areas for instructional emphasis.
  • Proven to improve student performance!

Brian Pool-

step 1 commit to using data
Step 1: Commit to Using Data
  • Without a district wide commitment, little district-wide improvement will result!
  • Create a Data Driven Decision-Making Culture
  • Get some district training!
step 2 training
Step 2: Training
  • District level training
  • Team

Keys to Effective Diagnostic Assessments

  • Spend Your Time Aligning
  • Assess for Mastery and Retention
  • Frequent and Fast Data that is Useful
  • Rethink the way you teach

Spend Your Time Aligning

  • If your content is not aligned you are wasting your time!
  • Know the relative weight of the standards being taught and tested.

Build or Buy? Two reasons to Build*


“Aligned to your standards”… and what else?

“Aligned to your standards”… but not your test.

Buying is Outsourcing

Outsource technical competencies that are not central to your mission.

Keep in-house what’s central to your work so you can develop your own knowledge about it.

Do you really want to outsource deep knowledge about the skills and content your students need to master…and can you afford it?


Make the Data Useful

Ready for a challenge

Needs a day of tutoring

Needs a tutor every day


Make the Data Useful



how do you collect real time data
Questions and Answers

Frequent quizzes


Student Feedback systems.

answer clickers

Outside systems

Study Island and many others…

Internal Systems

Moodle…OATs, OGTs

How do you collect real time data?
math task work
Math Task Work

Pair or group

Work on one Task at a time (take turns)

Review purpose of Unit/Tasks

Examine Student work

Review student results

Identify areas that are high leverage

Be directed by the data
