Shannon Chapman, Principal, Diane Herzfeldt, Research & Assessment, Menominee Tribal School, WI
Fusion 2012, the NWEA summer conference in Portland, Oregon

This session will provide schools that are in their first few years of MAP administration with an overview of the structural components to consider as they use data, set up schedules, communicate with/involve parents, and incorporate a variety of instructional resources. Menominee Tribal School will share their evolution to data-based decision making, using MAP data, to inform planning and instruction. We have shown tremendous growth since we started MAP assessments. Come and hear our story!

Learning outcome:
- Using data to set up structures for success in reading
- Motivating others to create transformation in school culture

- New data user

MTS is a BIE-funded school serving 190 students in grades K-8. Nearly 90% of our students qualify for free-reduced lunch. MTS ranks #3 of all BIE Reads Schools in reading achievement. My role is Principal/Administrator - I oversee curriculum, instruction, day-to-day operations, as well as budget and reporting accountability.

  5. 5. Why the need for NWEA MapTesting?  Low WKCE Scores  Need for more detailed data to develop school goals  Increase in proficiency levels (NCLB)  Common Core Standards
  6. 6. Data, data, data!Assessments• DIBELS• STAR Reading• STAR Math• Odyssey• NWEA• WKCE (3-8)• Terra Nova (K-2)
  7. 7. What do wedo with it all?• Data retreats 3x year to analyze the reports• Grade level goal setting• Action planning• Individual goal setting• Student data binders• Data wall• Time & Content grids• Set up student intervention programs as well as enrichment programming• Family Nights to teach parents how to read the NWEA reports and promoting family involvement in education
  8. 8. Menominee Tribal School is ranked #3 in theHow did BIE Reads! program, whichwe get is based on student readinghere? achievement in grades K-5.
  9. 9. Year 1 2008-2009Summer Data Retreats based on WKCE  Facilitated by Kris Wells, KPS Principal  Analyzed WKCE data  Developed goals and objectives  Needed more in-depth dataNWEA enters the picture….  Needed to secure teacher buy-in  Needed professional development for administration, teachers, IT, etc.  Need to learn the various administrative features  Class Roster Files  Downloading tests, etc.  How to manage it all?  Scheduling  Student orientation to test  Tests are proctored by teachers, adminFall 2008: MAP test administered K-8 followed by Spring 2009 test
  10. 10.

  12. 12. Year 3 2010-2011 This 2010 August data retreat was the first time we had an outside consultant come to help us analyze our MAP data During this 3-day retreat Becky helped our staff go more in depth in analyzing past WKCE data and make observations and hypotheses for math and reading Our staff also analyzed our MAP data and discussed trends and possible strategies for improvement Staff wrote reading and math goals for the 2010-2011 School Year
  13. 13. Year 3 Continued Under Becky’s guidance our staff continued to analyze the data by strands and write goals for the area with the most improvement need. In addition to writing data-based goals for reading and math, Becky facilitated the creation of a grade-level unit action plan to assist in our goal achievement Students Grades 2-8 were tested in fall, winter, & spring of 2010-2011
