  1. 1. Parent Orientation<br />Understanding the movement of Standards Based Education as it replaces the Traditional Education in today’s classroom<br />
  2. 2. Traditional Education<br />What are the characteristics of a Traditional Education classroom?<br />Teachers instruct classes (typically by lecture) and deliver information to the students for them to learn.<br />Students receive the information and are tested on the information for retention.<br />Teachers assign grades based on test/assignment performance.<br />The grades on the assignments and in school overall provide a ranking of students amongst their peers. <br />
  3. 3. Why is Traditional Education being replaced in most of today’s Classrooms?<br />In Traditional Education, frequently grades just ranked students and did not represent concept mastery or achievement.<br />Students are more successful when knowledge is the objective and the focus rather than grades.<br />Under Traditional Educational norms, a student ranked very low did not possess the necessary skills to function in an increasingly developed society.<br />In the Traditional Setting, students weren’t encouraged to strive for academic excellence, they were baited by grades.<br />
  4. 4. What is Standards Based Education?<br />In order to address the shortcomings of Traditional Education:<br />Standards are developed by the State. Students are aware of an achievement target/goal in advance.<br />Grades are no longer the sole means of communicating achievement to the students.<br />Students are deemed successful by their competence, not just their rank.<br />Reports, student involved conferences, and portfolios are used to track achievement progress more specifically and effectively than grades alone.<br />
  5. 5. How is standards based education more effective?<br />Student growth is tracked and acknowledged through the shifted mission in producing competent students.<br />Targets are communicated in advance to convey to students the necessary goals for success.<br />By broadcasting achievement standards, students have more ownership in their own success and therefore have more of an interest in progressing academically.<br />Grades represent student ability rather than a ranking thus providing more information about student achievement.<br />
  6. 6. Side by Side Comparison of Traditional and Standards Based Education<br />Grades used to rank <br />Communication is from the teacher to the student<br />Students may move forward with a lack of understanding which is needed for the next level of learning<br />Grades represent student competence & understanding<br />Student & Teacher communication is bilateral<br />Students advance based on achievement and concept mastery<br />Traditional<br />Standards Based<br />
  7. 7. Traditional Grading<br />Traditional Grading was based on student performance on tasks.<br />Students who did not complete tasks were scored similarly to the students who did not understand the concepts.<br />Assessment was not typically personalized, but rather it was an objective assignment of grades.<br />Frequently Students are unaware of learning objectives and lose interest in their own education when they do not receive high grades on assignments.<br />
  8. 8. Standards Based Grading<br />Standards Based Grading focuses on determining student understanding and mastery rather than just test performance.<br />Progress over time is seen more clearly as students meet the clearly defined goals set before them.<br />Students become more involved in their assessment as they are aware of the achievement levels in advance.<br />Standards communication is established through clearly defined expectations, achievements, and rubrics.<br />
  9. 9. The Benefits of Standards Based Education Justify the Replacement of Traditional Education<br />Standards Based Education & Grading encourage student interest, involvement, and ownership of their education.<br />Standards Based Grading represents achievement, understanding, and concept mastery which is more valuable than just a figure which inaccurately ranks students amongst their peers.<br />Standards Based Education allows for the classroom to adapt to the needs of the student which effectively retains more students.<br />
  10. 10. Ways Standards Based Achievement are Communicated to Students & Parents<br />Grades represent student progress: frequently grades are not numerical or on a scale from A-F but rather a students individual performance on specific tasks is analyzed to determine concept mastery.<br />Achievement is outlined in advance so students can prepare to meet the needs of the classroom and parents may be involved in encouraging students towards achievement goals.<br />Objectives are personalized based on the needs of the individual students and may be communicated directly via assessment or by conference.<br />
  11. 11. Standards Based Education allows for students to develop a thirst for learning and achievement which lasts beyond the classroom.<br />“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.” ~Clay P. Bedford<br />
