Used well, monitoring tools are not just for outside agencies or leaders, but for students, teachers, principals and parents, too. These tools let us know when the students are on the right path and at the right pace. The right data systems illuminate what to fix. They let us know when we need to intervene with training or support or where we need to craft a new solution to innovate.

  • There are so many students in the red – why?

    Examples of Data Findings Related to the Data Question

  • In 8th grade Reading on the fall 2012 WSAS, over half (54%) of SwD scored in the minimal category, while only 11% of Students Without Disabilities scored at that same level.

  • 58.5% of Students Without Disabilities were below proficient, compared to 85.7% of Students With Disabilities below proficient in reading in fall 2012 on the same test.

  • Take quiet time to think about all of the causes for the data pattern.

  • Translate each “cause” into a “hypothesis of practice”.

  • Hypotheses of practice …

    • Are our best educated guesses about what “we” are doing or not doing that could be contributing to the results

    • Are guided by the data findings

    • Are shaped by both perceptions of practices and professional experiences in the school

    • Are guided by research-based practices

    • Never place blame on student or family characteristics, or any other unalterable factors

  • Is it because we have not changed our instructional techniques as our school population has changed?

  • Because WISEdash allows you to “drill down” to specific students, think ahead about the role that the WSAS plays in planning for students.

    • State assessments are external indicators of internal work.

    • Compare state assessment summative results with local assessment results – use caution when comparing fall (WKCE) data with spring local data.

    • Understand that the current WSAS will be implemented for one more year – in fall 2013. Therefore, these analyses help prepare staff for the upcoming new era with the Smarter Balanced Assessment in 2013-15.

  • Respect confidentiality. Save data in a secure data folder.

Local data should predict external assessment results

  • The yaxis indicates the percent of students achieving at proficient & advanced levels—the higher the “bubble,” the higher the achievement.

  • Thexaxis indicates the median student growth percentile – or the average amount of change in test performance from one year to the next, as compared to students across Wisconsin. The more the “bubble” is to the right, the greater the growth.

  • Because WISEdash allows you to “drill down” to specific students, think head about the role that the WSAS plays in planning for students.

    • State assessments are external indicators of internal work.

    • Compare state assessment summative results with local assessment results – use caution when comparing change in WKCE testing to growth on local measures.

    • Understand that the current WSAS will be implemented for one more year – in fall 2013. Therefore, these analyses help prepare staff for the upcoming new era with the Smarter Balanced Assessment in 2013-15.
