Use the materials that have been presented by Phillip Holmes Smith as a tool to navigate the process of looking at the data provided in Naplan. How to get into reports and then how to use this Some schools are buying sreams
Using writing as a focus today because topic is supporting writers
Orange is the stateRed is school
It is 70 pages long and hopefully everyone brought theirs.Can use it online or on the computer but each school should have at least one hard copy of the doco
Every genre or text type has a defined criteria for markingNarrative did and here is the one for Persuasive.We expect that students will be expected to write in the persuasive genre for at least 5 years to allow for the picture to be formed of student growth Ideas are linked to the topicCharacters and settings instead of persuasive devises.It would be still good to use the narrative rubric for working with narratives (Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!!)
Our task is to look at our school, our classes and decide where we can support our students in moving up the rubric.Then look at our kids and see how we can support them.
We can look at what a 1 or a 2 isWe can look at the examples that ACRARA givesWe then can look at what our students are doing and think about what support they need.
The rubric shows what is expected next and gives examples that students could read to get an idea of what writing in paragraphs looks like.
This gives us the details of student results by criteria.We can look at students in a school in a class or even by themselves.
This is the example given by Phillip Holmes Smith and it is based on the narrative assessmentIt is not different to what you can get from the reports this year.For those of you that are buying ‘Sreams’ it is done for you.
Year 7 NAPLAN Persuasive Writing –The writing was assessed in 8 areas. I have created a table to show you what the students (as an average) actually achieved and what they need to learn next.This document could be used to forward plan writing strategies and learning intentions for term one next year.Support taken directly from the marking guide.Could use the information from sources like Northern Territory writing supportThe wiki has lots of information about persuasive writing
We have this material around usDon’t let’s just leave it there
We often talk about what we have to do to improve the kids but what do we do to get our teachers to look at their teachingThe school owns this dataFrom prep upThere will be things we can all do as a school to build strength in teaching
Item analysisWe can see cohorts hereCan use classes within schools Looking for patterns
Question 30This cohort School Answer is A – 25% had it correct c/f 59% of the state getting it correct. See the spread of answers across the state results75% of cohort had the same incorrect answerCould lead to believe that misconception – not taught / not understood by most
When you look at student results - the raw score you can get a vels level although as with any conversion it only gives a feeling and not completely accurate.

How can we assist teachers to think about using data like this?• Shoulder to shoulder talk
Transition Primary to SecondaryWho owns the data?19 months of the 24 month cycle is with previous teachersLooking for common misconceptions so that we can support students in achieving the best that they can
• An approach to sustaining student outcomes in the long term• Supportive and collegiate discussions between secondary schools and feeder primary schools
• Data has to be generated by Secondary School• Breaking year 7 data into primary school cohorts can show the strengths and areas to work on at the primary level
Where to from here?• Little steps• Drilling down on results• Strengths and weakness• Whole school ownership
Term 4 work• Guided Reading – workshop modelling and inclass support• Literacy block Grade 1/2 - planning modelling inclass support• Daily 5 and Cafe Menu Prep - planning and inclass trial• Spelling – revisit after whole school workshop
Term 4 work• Supporting Writers Workshop with Literacy Coordinators• Follow up afterschool workshops (To be decided)• Reading workshop – Grade 5/6 planning and inclass support• Friends and Books – follow up with schools/ Ultranet• Naplan analysis and support
