  3. 3. St. Helen Elementary School Goal: Improving Mathematics Content Area : Math Goal Source : CNA Development Status : In Development Student Goal Statement : To increase the percentage of students meeting expectations for the MEAP 2009 testing period. In addition, increase students meeting benchmark according to the criteria set forth on the NWEA test. Gap Statement : A percentage of students at the elementary level are not meeting grade level expectations in math. For instance, 87% of the students in third grade met expectations in the MEAP according to the Fall 2008 test. However, in the Fall of 2008 at St. Helen Elementary 82% of the students in second grade were not meeting benchmark according to the NWEA Assessment. In addition, 59% in 3rd, and 60% in 4th are not meeting benchmark in math based on the current 08/09 NWEA assessments. Cause for Gap : The AYP Math targets are: 3=67%, 4=65% and 5= 65%. Our building has certainly moved students out of the lower categories. Data analysis has revealed several students who's cut scores were very close to the next level. Interventions have been implemented to close the gap for these students to move them into the next level. The gap was identified by MEAP and NWEA results, students were identified and then strategies and services were implemented. The cause for the gap was the fact that without assessment data we were unaware of the exact needs that went beyond the Universal Intructional needs of our students. Multiple measures/sources of data you used to identify this gap in student achievement : This Gap was identified through MEAP, NWEA assessments results and Everyday Math Assessments which are all utitlized to Progress monitor and will drive group and individualized intruction. What are the criteria for success and what data or multiple measures of assessment will be used to monitor progress and success of this goal? All students in the St. Helen Elementary Title I program will increase their MEAP percentage to reach 75%, in all math areas, by the end of the 2009/10 school year.
