Patricio A. Rojas, PH.D. Director of Research, Data & Assessment, Los Lunas, NM
Fusion 2012, the NWEA summer conference in Portland, Oregon
This session will provide participants the opportunity to experience an alternative method of rating teachers, under new regulations of New Mexico. This is an updated version of the work presented last year in FUSION 2011. The alternative method is needed because we do not have growth points in the year 2010-2011 in New Mexico.
- Learn easy graphs to analyze growth and how to rate teacher performance without using grown points.
Los Lunas is located 35 miles south from Albuquerque, the district has 9,000 students; 17 schools (3 high schools, 2 middle schools, and 12 elementary schools). The district is one of the few nationally accredited districts in the nation. We have been using MAP as short cycle assessment for the last six years. MAP scores are an important piece of data used to rate both schools and teachers.
