    Normes data analysis Normes data analysis Presentation Transcript

    • Analysis questions to ask, using normes reports….
    • Growth Summaries…
      What % of students met expected gains for the year (each group)
      Any group hugely different from Combined Pop. (% meeting growth?)— Groups? Subjects?
      How do each grade-level summaries compare in % meeting growth?
      Do patterns exist—grade level groups? --subgroups perform PERSISTENTLY different?
    • Growth Rosters &Individual Student Reports
      Which students didn’t meet expected growth?
      Is there a pattern among those students?
      Which students didn’t meet proficiency (lost ground this year)?
      Is there a pattern?
      Additional information…..see next slide:
    • Additional Information for Gr. Roster/Ind. Student Reports
      What do you know about students’ performance in that subject that could: inform further instructional action or intervention?
      What add’l. information do you need to guide your decisions about instruction/intervention?
      What resources do you have to gather that additional information?
    • Digging into Details,at appropriate levels:
      Do subgroups demonstrate differences in achievement?
      Do these differences constitute achievement gaps between groups?
      Answer the following about those differences:
      Are those differences large?
      Are those differences meaningful?
      Is the school closing any gaps in achievement?
    • Digging into details, value of identifying MEANINGFUL gaps:
      Improvement efforts must be based on documented needs rather than perceived needs.
      For efforts to be effective, MUST identify:
      Where the achievement gaps exist (schools, classrooms, students)
      How large the gaps are when they exist
      Whether the gaps have been persistent OVER TIME
