  • Dew Data
    • Dear Coaches, 
    • Here is the compiled data that you requested
    • from Handy in regards to the power of DEW
    • time. Handy started on the first day of school in
    • 2006. We had three weeks to DEW before the
    • MEAP window.
    • Our DEW MISSION was to build writing stamina
    • and confidence as a writer. The time was
    • created to teach students to write better; longer.
    •   Our MEAP writing results blew us away….
    VanSumeren/Young/McCulloch BCPS 2010
  • Writing MEAP Scores 06-07
    • 6TH: 59% proficient, 21% became proficient that were not, 23% moved up a level from previous year.
    • 7TH: 49% proficient, 6% became proficient that were not, 7% moved up a level from previous year.
    • 8TH: 43% proficient, 20% became proficient that were not, 26% moved up a level from previous year.
    • EMPTY ESSAYS: (No response)- 152 in Winter of 2005, 34 in Fall of 2006. (118 fewer) Confidence in writing has dramatically grown just based on the number of fewer empty essays.
    • Hopefully this supports how powerful DEW time can be.
    • Becca :)
