Georgia Assessment of Performance on School Standards

Developed 3 years ago based on:

  • The work of Bob Marzano (meta-analysis of over 25 years of research)
  • The work of selected states (Texas, Kentucky, North Carolina and others)
  • Expertise of over 2000 collective years of experience of the Division of School Improvement staff (now re-named School and Leader Quality)
purpose of gapss
Purpose of GAPSS

To measure the degree of implementation of the Georgia School Standards (now re-named the School Keys)

To assist in targeting and addressing areas for improvement in a school

gapss analysis approaches
GAPSS Analysis Approaches

External Approach

DOA External System Approach

Local School Internal Approach

external approach
External Approach
  • GAPSS are mandatory for schools in NI-6 and are led by GaDOE personnel.
  • GAPSS can be done on a voluntary basis and led by GaDOE , RESA, local system personnel who have been trained in the process.
  • GAPSS can be done in lieu of the SACS CASI process at the school level.
doa external system approach
DOA External System Approach
  • Training of selected system and/or school level administrators in one school system:
    • Content of the GSS (School Keys)
    • GAPSS procedures (including video vignettes)
  • A GAPSS is done with a single school within the system and conducted by the cadre of trained participants led by GaDOE personnel
  • De-briefing after the initial in-system GAPSS
  • Additional, scheduled GAPSS within the system led by the system and/or school personnel without GaDOE assistance
local school internal approach
Local School Internal Approach
  • Training of selected MCSD school level administrators and/or teachers:
    • Content of the GSS (School Keys)
    • GAPSS procedures (including video vignettes)
  • A GAPSS is done with an identified school within the system and conducted by the cadre of trained participants led by MCSD Central Office personnel.
  • De-briefing after the identified school GAPSS
  • The trainees from the selected schools will schedule a GAPSS within their school without assistance from MCSD Central Office.
the mcsd gapss model
The MCSD GAPSS Model

Select System and/or School Staff

Conduct Training (School Keys and GAPSS)

Conduct Prototype GAPSS with GaDOE

Initiate the GAPSS Process

Schedule GAPSS training for

School Administrators/Lead Teachers

to become lead facilitators

Schedule in-system GAPSS to be led by In-System Personnel

Debrief after GAPSS is conducted

Develop a monitoring process for School Action Plans on Identified Target Areas for Improvement

Review System-

Level GAPSS Analysis Process

Annually and make Adjustments

Develop five year schedule for DOA External GAPSS Analysis at Individual Schools

in all three approaches
In All Three Approaches…
  • Study is based on 4 types of data:
    • School Profile (Data)
    • Interview
    • Observation
    • Certified Staff Survey (DOE)

GAPSS Analysis

Interview questions are correlated to the standards and elements of the GSS

activity 1
Activity #1

Read the notes from a leadership team interview.

If the survey and other school data supported

this, what could you offer as a recommendation

for the school?

After you have finished, peruse some authentic

recommendations (see back) that have been

offered to leadership teams in real GAPSS

Analyses. School Keys: L-4

Instructor’s role predominantly observed:

Students were predominantly engaged in:

activity 2
Activity #2

Review the following 2 pieces of information generated in GAPSS Analysis:

  • Observation Summary
  • Survey Data (excerpts)

How would you deal with the discrepancies in the 2

pieces of data?

What patterns do you see that could serve as the basis

for recommendations.

Discuss this in a small group and select someone to

report out from your group.

data integration
Data Integration

GAPSS Team will:

  • Rate the Standards (Keys) rubrics
  • Generate recommendations and commendations
  • Prioritize the recommendations and commendations and select the most significant ones that could be target areas for improvement
activity 3
Activity #3

Review the sample target areas chart that was generated from a GAPSS Analysis.

(HANDOUT)

Discuss the contents of the chart in small groups.

Identify the first thing that a leadership team could do after reviewing it.

benefits of the system level approach
Benefits of the system-level Approach

A good grounding in the GSS (School Keys)

A renewed sense of mission / purpose at the system level

Collegiality and collaboration between school and system level administrators

A systematic approach to improvement based on the GSS (School Keys)

Gained expertise in data collection, analysis, interpretation and utilization for improvement

A sustained process of improvement

capacity building
Capacity Building

In the system approach, there are many more opportunities for capacity-building.

In this approach, school and system personnel learn to fix their own problems.

Capacity Building

In either approach, the result is a group of people learning and growing together with a common mission to implement a data-driven process to improve their schools…

A PROFESSIONAL LEARNING

COMMUNITY IS BORN.
