Compass Learning Odyssey- School Board Presentation

  1. 1. Compass Learning Odyssey<br />Overview and Application in the Middle School<br />
  2. 2. What is Compass Learning Odyssey?<br />Tool that directly connects data and technology<br />Web-based and interactive<br />Versatile- remediation, enrichment, and grade level instruction<br />Differentiates learning based on student’s individual needs<br />Allows teachers to easily make informed instructional decisions for each student as an individual<br />Works collaboratively with MAP testing<br />
  3. 3. After a student takes MAP…<br />Imports student’s current data for math, reading, and language<br />Uses the individual subgroup RIT range to assign folders of activities for each subgroup<br />For example…When a student takes the MAP test, they could receive these RIT ranges for the following math subgroups:<br /> Algebra 218-231<br /> Geometry 226-239<br /> Numbers 222-228<br />Based on these scores, Compass Learning Odyssey then assigns a folder of individualized activities at their “ready to learn” level for each subgroup<br />
  4. 4. Possible Uses Relative to Student Needs<br />Remediation<br />Bring students up to grade level<br />Enrichment classes with students individually working on a targeted area of growth<br />Worksheets directly tied to activities that can be used in small-group instruction<br />Enrichment<br />To push students beyond grade level<br />Folders assigned for students to individually work on outside of school<br />Direct Instruction<br />To support grade level<br />Interactive tools for use in the classroom<br />Whole group activities with interactive white boards (Promethean/Mimio)<br />
  5. 5. The Student Perspective<br />Interactive and Individualized<br />
  6. 6. Student logs in<br />
  7. 7. Enters their subject portal (math, reading, language)<br />
  8. 8. Opens folder connected to their targeted area of growth<br />
  9. 9. Student selects their activity<br />
  10. 10. Student completes activity<br />
  11. 11. Upon completion, “backpacks” to check for skill proficiency prior to moving on, creating a sense of ownership in their personal progress<br />
  12. 12. After completing all activities in that growth area folder, they can move on to the next targeted folder<br />
  13. 13. The Teacher Perspective<br />Monitoring and Management<br />
  14. 14. Assess the folders assigned by MAP and interpret which folders need to be added in order to build skill<br />
  15. 15. Teachers can quickly and easily assign additional folders at their discretion<br />
  16. 16. Ability to digitally communicate within the system via Compass “email”<br />
  17. 17. Ability to monitor by running reports to verify activity completion at proficiency level prior to student moving on<br />
  18. 18. Utilization Report<br />Overview of activities completed, time spent, average score, per class<br />November 1st, 2010 to January 23, 2011<br />January 24, 2011 to February 7th, 2011<br />
  19. 19. Student Progress<br />Detailed outline of individual student’s progress by activity, date, time, score, and duration<br />
  20. 20. Goal-Based Test Results<br />Takes student’s individual scores for MAP subgroups and sorts for easy ability grouping<br />
  21. 21. Increasing Student Achievement<br />Student-centered program<br />Directly aligned to district’s assessment already in place<br />Additional hours of interactive learning directly at the student’s individual “ready to learn” level<br />Ability to quickly and easily differentiate in order to meet students’ needs in a realistic and manageable way<br />
