Culminating Activity The culminating activity will be a lesson that you design. We will collect pieces along the way.
North Carolina Educator Evaluation System• Standard II: Teachers establish a respectful environment for a diverse population of students.• Standard III: Teachers know the content they teach.• Standard IV: Teachers facilitate learning for their students.• Standard V: Teachers reflect on their practice.
Types of Data:1. Achievement data are used to determine the level of student achievement in a particular content area (e.g., performance- based assessments, written exams, quizzes).2. Demographic Data are descriptive information about the school community such as enrollment, gender, ethnicity, economic status, student attendance, grade levels, school suspensions and behavioral problems.3. Program Data define the programs, instructional strategies and classroom practices of the teachers. Program data collected may be useful in making informed decisions about future program and curriculum choices.4. Perception Data tell us what students, parents, staff and others think about the learning environment. They include questionnaires, interviews, surveys and observations. Collecting and evaluating perception data allows educations to pay attention to the opinions and ideas of the community.
