  • Teaching is public
2010 pd survey emerging themes
2010 PD Survey – Emerging Themes
  • Learning through collaboration
  • Want collegial inquiry and discussion.
  • PD must be research based
  • A focus on assessment is important
  • Return to PLC model for school reform
student learning gaps
Student Learning Gaps
  • Performance of subgroups of students on state achievement tests
  • Children of color and children growing up in poverty do not read, write or perform math operations as well as white or relatively more affluent children.
  • Data from 2009/10 AYP accountability report
    • KHS – NP Math: White, F/R,
    • KMS – NP CA: F/R – NP Math: F/R
    • RME – NP CA: IEP
proposed pd purpose
Proposed PD Purpose
  • Use action research model to study how assessment for learning strategies help students connect to learning
    • AR is evaluating the results of an action with the intent of further analysis, planning, acting and evaluating.
  • PD could be informed by the writing and presentations of Reeves, Stiggins, Eaker or Dufour
  • Research suggests that applying strategies of formative assessment that connect the learner directly to instruction during learning, can produce significant gains in achievement (Stiggins, 2006).

      • Be proficient according to the criteria of the standard – Reeves, 2007

Seven Strategies;

  • Good and poor examples of anonymous student work
  • Scoring guide - clear picture of expectations
  • Descriptive feedback
  • Students track their own progress -self-assess and set goals
  • Teachers focus lessons on one aspect of quality
  • Students focus revisions on one element at a time
  • Students reflect on learning-monitor their own progress.
  • How to frame or think about AFL study
    • PLC: Centers on the collaboration of teachers
      • Eaker and Dufour
    • Norms that support reflection and study of education – achieving a shared goal
    • Time and opportunity for reflective dialogue
    • Opportunities appraise oneself
    • Collaboration - essential outcome of reflective dialogue
    • Community of learners, who share information, strategies, issues and concerns.
a proposed plan
A Proposed Plan
  • Employ AR approach to help teachers improve instruction by implementing the principles of Assessment for Learning.
  • Frame the AR through PLC Model: The project will center on the collaboration teachers
proposed plan cont
Proposed Plan(cont.)
  • Sept. 24th–Diagnose assessment practices currently used - examined what we know about our students/study the principles of assessment
    • Share by team how assessment information is used to inform instruction and how assessment data is used.
    • Product: Record observations, ideas and issues
proposed plan cont1
Proposed Plan (cont.)
  • October 25th: Implement the principles of AFL
    • Stiggins, Reeves, Eaker, or Dufour Speak in a.m. on the topic of assessment schemes.
    • Small Group Activity – AR project begins
      • teachers connect instructional assessments to learners in a profound, direct manner.
      • Plan to engage students through formative, classroom


Ex. develop and use a scoring guide/model to inform instruction and provide students with a target – Best Practice

      • Teachers plan their own implementation of

AFL for learning principles

evaluation concluding activity
Evaluation – Concluding Activity
  • Feb. 18th– Share thoughts and feelings about the project - how the experience has changed methods & perspective
    • Data will be collected throughout the project in the form of journal writing.
      • Recorded observations of classroom assessment activities
  • Themes emerge about how teachers alter their perspective and their practice, to facilitate standards based assessment
    • value of collaboration is the focal point
    • Project creates a PLC
