  6. Where are we going? • Use of alignment data to develop a plan that matches the original purpose of alignment work • Examples from ICAT

  7. Data Display Percent alignment between what is taught and the Essential Concepts/Skill Sets is displayed Different levels of analysis reveal different degrees of alignment ICC Network Meeting

  8. Data Display The Essential Concepts/Skill Sets taught and not taught are indicated in a table with “Yes” and “No” Yellow highlights the “No” designations ICC Network Meeting

  9.

  13. Current uses for ICAT • Fulfill compliance requirements • Support school improvement efforts • Assist with professional growth of staff • Compliance with Outcome 4: Summative Self Reporting • Gaps and Overlaps in several directions • Curriculum revision cycle • Teacher self-reflection

  14. Inappropriate uses for ICAT • Evaluation of teachers within the formal evaluation system • Evaluation of impact of professional development • Experimental examination of impact of alignment on student performance • Public reporting of alignment results • Making decisions about individual student opportunity to learn as part of the special education process

  15. Foundational Alignment • Terms: • Quiz • Definition • Group Discussion

  16. Curriculum terms get at the types of intended, enacted, assessed • Alignment terms address the characteristics of alignment • Directionality • Dimensions • Level of Analysis

  17. The Process is similar to Continuous Improvement • Need to Align • Planned Alignment • Instruction/Assessment • Measured Alignment (Evaluation)

  18. The Process • is not evaluative or judgmental • requires a collective effort

  19. First Pass concentrates on • enacted to intended • horizontal alignment • topical/conceptual knowledge • fine-grained with coarse-grained results

  20. Quality Alignment Work Indicators (QAWI) • use checklist • discuss evidence

  21. ICAT • Updating district participants • Updating district courses January 1, 2011
