  1. EAGLE Teacher Workshops Louisiana Department of Education and Pacific Metrics Corporation August 2011

  2. EAGLE Workshop Agenda • Summative , Interim, and Formative Assessments • Analyzing Assessment Data (LEAPweb, LEAPdata, and EAGLE) • The Role of EAGLE in Assessments • EAGLE, GLEs, and the New Standards • EAGLE System Functionalities • EAGLE Content and Item Types • Overview of Tools in EAGLE • Premade Tests (Pre/Post diagnostic and Premade unit tests) • Scheduling and Naming of Tests • Teacher Reports • Student Reports • 10-minute Break - BREAKOUT to separate Computer Labs • Teacher Home Page and Functionalities – EAGLE Training Site • Student Home Page and Functionalities – EAGLE Training Site • EAGLE Support • Workshop Evaluation 3

  3. 3 Types of Assessment Formative • Ongoing assessments in the classroom to inform instruction and learning Interim • Planned assessments at intervals to make local decisions at district and school levels Summative • Year end large-scale assessments for all decision making and future reference 4

  4. Formative Assessment formative assessment n. Aprocess used by teachers and students during instructionthat provides feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning for the purpose of improving students’ achievement of intended instructional outcomes. EAGLE supports Formative Assessment • Teachers use assessment to inform their instruction. They change and adjust their instruction based on the needs for each student. • Students use assessment to inform their learning. They must make adjustments to what they are learning and they must develop strategies for learning. 5

  5. Grade-Level Expectations and New StandardsWhat are Content Standards? • Content Standards are statements that define what a student should know and be able to do • at the end of specific time period or grade level • in a specific subject area • Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) • Term used in Louisiana for content standards for a specific grade • Synonymous to “Standards” in Common Core State Standards • CCS ELA vs. GLEs ELA • GLEs–ELA taught in isolation; Literature and literary skills (identifying terms and devices like theme) • CCS–ELA taught in collaboration; Informational texts for College Career and Readiness (Cross-content literacy integration) • CCS Math – Balanced combination of procedural skill and understanding; Requires students to “explain” and “justify” rather than “define” and “identify” 6

  6. Implementation of New Standards 7

  7. Science and Social Studies Standards • Science Content Standards • Next Generation Science Standards currently under development by national groups • Expected release in Spring 2012 • Will be reviewed for appropriateness to replace current Louisiana science standards; if acceptable, will be adopted in Summer or Fall 2012 to be implemented in 2014-15 • Social Studies Content Standards • Revised by committees of state educators in 2010-11 • To be considered by BESE for approval in June 2011 • To be implemented in 2014-15 8

  8. Formative Assessment Strategiesthat help Students Learn • Learning Targets—breaking down GLEs into simple language for students • Examples of strong and weak work. • Progress Monitoring—frequent feedback about how the student is doing on GLEs • Self-assessment—teaching the student to monitor their own learning of the GLEs • Focused Learning—customizing instruction to allow students to focus on difficult GLEs • SELF-REFLECTION—having students write about their learning of the GLEs • Instructional PLAN—based on available data–have a plan for each class that covers each and every student 9

  9. iLEAP Performance ReportSpring 2011 (State) Grade 3 Math 10

  10. An EAGLE Grade 3 Math Class Created as a database in The LEAPdata Query System • Print your EAGLE Class showing students • Sign in to the LEAPdata Query System • Click on Create a Database • Select the students shown for the grade • Give the database a name and Save • View or Modify to add students that were not shown (need state id) and Save • Generate Reports for analysis (Performance and Individual Student Reports) • Come up with Instructional Strategies • Use EAGLE to Monitor Progress 11

  13. Key Features of EAGLE • Student-friendlyGLEs—help students learn what they are expected to know at their grade level and help teachers communicate those expectations to students. • Reports for Students—foster student self-assessment and show students how well they are progressing on each GLE they’ve been tested | Encourages students to focus their learning on particular GLEs. • Reports for Teachers—inform teachers how the class as a whole is progressing AND how individual students are performing on each GLE. • Customized Test Construction—allows teachers to build tests based on targeted instruction | customized tests can be assigned to an individual student or a group of students 14

  14. How to create a Student-friendly LEARNING TARGET Example: Grade 5 Math GLE 27 • GLE 27—Identify and plot points on a coordinate grid in the first quadrant. • GLE Student-friendly version: Plot and name points on a coordinate grid. (Student friendly GLEs are available in EAGLE.) • Word(s) to be defined: ‘coordinate grid’ • Definition(s) of word(s) the student may not understand: A coordinate grid has two perpendicular lines, or axes, labeled like number lines. The horizontal line is called the x-axis. The vertical line is called the y-axis. The point where the lines cross is called the origin. (Show the students a picture with the x- and y-axes and origin labeled.) • Student-friendly learning target: Have students use “I am learning to …” statements: “I am learning to plot and name points on an x, y grid.” 15

  15. Show Students HowScoring Rubrics Work 16

  16. Content and Item Types In EAGLE 17

  22. EAGLE Premade Tests ELA: 82 tests across grades 3–12 Math: 98 tests across grades 3–12 Science:72 tests across grades 4, 8, & HS Social Studies: 76 tests across grades 4, 8, & HS • Designed to be taken in one class period • Two pre/post test for each subject and grade level • One premade test for each Comprehensive Curriculum Unit • ELA tests are designed using scaffolding (the ordering of items from simple to complex) Note: Grade 1 & 2 Math and ELA premade tests to be released later this fall 23
