NWEA MAP BOE presentation

  1. 1. Presented by Brian Seligman, Director of Information Systems, Data and Technology Anne Abrams, Tisha Colangelo, Ann Marie Dobransky, Christine Gallagher, Stephanie Goldman, Jayne Marraccini, and Donna Murphy With Special thanks to Michael Greenfield, Chandana Neureuther, Christine Dickinson, Janice Varmon, Colleen Bertolino, and Johnna Williams. Using MAP Data to Inform Instruction Presentation to the Harrison Central School District February 6, 2014
  2. 2. NWEA’s MAP Assessments  MAP (Measure of Academic Progress)  What is the MAP assessment?  What is an Adaptive Test?  Why another Test?  Focus on data to improve reading and math skills  Harrison MAP data…So what? Now what?  Proficiency Projections  How are our teachers using MAP data to inform instructional planning?
  3. 3. What is the MAP assessment? A Tool for Teachers  Created by teachers for teachers, MAP assessments provide detailed, actionable data about where each child is on their unique learning path.  It’s information teachers can use in the classroom to help every child, every day.  Data Literacy – Connect knowledge of student data to instructional planning.  Aligned to the common core. (Test assesses the same standards)  Reading and Math skills and content are assessed multiple times each year. How is this test different? Adapting the Test to the Student  MAP dynamically adapts to a student’s responses – as they take the test.  Answer a question correctly and the test presents a more challenging item.  Miss a question, and MAP offers a simpler item.  MAP identifies a student’s “Zone of Proximal Development”
  4. 4. What data do we get from MAP tests?  Scores between 100 and 300  Compare students across grade levels and compare students against a national average  Stable over time (NWEA’s MAP tests began in 1997)  Allows us to assess change (growth) over time  How do we know students are learning?
  5. 5. Why more testing?  MAP is a predictive tool.  Predict proficiency  Identify “at risk” students  Adjust programs to fit the needs of students  Identify needs of all students and inform teaching practices  MAP can measure progress over time  Individual student progress  Cohort/Program progress
  6. 6. A closer look at Harrison Data  History of MAP testing in Harrison.  2007-2008 MAP testing was introduced to LMK. Initially testing was conducted once per year. Increased to twice per year in 2010-11.  2012-13 MAP testing was introduced K-5.  Analysis of MAP data and State Test data revealed a correlation.  Let’s take a look…

  8. 8. How can we use MAP data?  Teachers use MAP data to determine student readiness.  MAP data can be broken down by subject and strand to provide teachers with the information they need to better differentiate.  Reading is broken down into Literature, Informational Text and Foundations/Vocabulary.  Math is broken down into Algebra, Geometry, Numbers and Operations and Measurement. ***Same way the Common Core State Standards are arranged.  Teachers use MAP data to inform instructional planning.  RTI (Response to Intervention)  Flexible Grouping  Differentiation  Focused Instruction
  9. 9. Response to Intervention  Before MAP data, teachers used NYS test results and reading assessments to identify students in need.  State data-cutoffs unreliable  Feedback generic to the levels 1,2,3,4  Local assessments can be subjective  With MAP data, teachers have a third, current and informative data tool to confirm the placement of students in the RTI framework.  Tier 1- students who are performing at grade level  Tier 2- students who are struggling with grade level material  Tier 3- students who are significantly below grade level C. Gallagher
  10. 10. Response to Intervention  Identifying Tier 2 students using MAP  Teachers can provide support that targets the deficits these students are facing  Through the use of DesCartes, teachers can tailor the small group instruction to meet the students’ needs. C. Gallagher

  18. 18. Focused Instruction  Focused Instruction for Main Idea and Inferencing  Timely data allows us to be attentive to specific skills.  Example – Launch of Nonfiction Unit – Reading Informational text J. Marraccini
  19. 19. How do we use text features to determine the main idea of a nonfiction article? Text has been omitted. Children are focused on the text features. After the information from the text features have been charted, the text is revealed. J. Marraccini
  20. 20. Differentiated for High Readiness  Know where to start Fountas &Pinnell testing  F & P reading levels are used to support guided reading.  Make partnerships  Gain a better understanding of who is struggling/excelling in math  Create challenges for high readiness students A. Abrams
  21. 21. Student Involvement  Student selected goals  Reflection  Tracking growth S. Goldman

  24. 24. What our teachers are saying…  Kimberly Salvatore “Using the class by RIT reports, DesCartes, and teacher report data, we have created need-based groups for literacy/math centers (intervention time). We are also in the process of coordinating lessons with our school Library Media Specialist. Once coordinated, students will have the opportunity to practice skills on iPads.”  Chandana Neureuther “I have been using the MAP data to print out the DesCartes for my struggling students strand by stand and highlighting skill areas where they have voids. This work has been done during IE time in my classroom. I group students according to these DesCartes' needs as well as use them to inform partnerships.”  Christine Dickinson “I have been able to turnkey some of my learning with my colleagues at Purchase. Some of the most useful features include the progress charts that show the kids’ scores over the past two years as well as the line graph. The class RIT band charts have been helpful with grouping kids and of course the DesCartes lists of skills give you some kind of starting point once you decide which area would be most beneficial to target.”  Janice Varmon “I used the MAP results to help with making groups for Literacy Centers so that each child will work on specific skills they need to work on.”  Colleen Bertolino and Johnna Williams “Using the DesCartes generator we are able to determine exactly what these students are ready to learn next. This has helped us differentiate instruction for those students during Literacy Time. In addition, we use this during Writer's and Reader's Workshop within our conferencing and guided reading to guide instruction.”
