  1. 1. Don’t forget the kids. Dave Woods
  2. 2. Four things you need to know 1. Know the numbers, API, AYP 2. Know the number of questions for Proficient 3. Teach parents to read the STAR Report 4. Don’t forget the kids
  3. 3. API-the short explanation The API is a single number, ranging from a low of 200 to a high of 1000, that reflects a school’s or LEA’s performance level, based on the results of statewide testing. Its purpose is to measure the academic performance and growth of schools.
  4. 4. API by subgroup
  5. 5. 2008 API
  6. 6. Achievement Gap
  7. 7. What are the Subgroups included in API Reporting?
  8. 8. What are the Subgroups included in API Reporting?
  9. 9. 4 Components of AYP A. Achievement of the statewide Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) in both English language arts (ELA) and math 1. “Percent proficient” B. Achievement of a 95% participation rate on all applicable assessments 2. “Participation Rate” (95%) C. Achievement on the “additional” indicators 3. “Minimum API for all schools” (590) 4. “Graduation rate for high schools”

  28. 28. Alphabet Activity T FNZ APYDI BGRMJHQ KECWULSOV Directions – use groups of 4. Project this pyramid for 10 seconds and remove the image. Having them work individually, duplicate the letters in the pyramid they remember. Project the pyramid again so they can see how many they got right. Tally 6 or so individuals as they will probably only get between 5-7 correct. Tell them they will now work in groups of 4 and give them a couple of minutes to strategize. Project the next pyramid for 10 seconds and remove the image. Have the groups again duplicate the letters they remember in pyramid form, then project the image so they can see how many they got right. Tally each group. (most will have gotten all 25). The point of the exercise is individually they not at nearly as efficient as they are collectively.

  31. 31. Test thinking strategies Test Thinking Strategy 
 Instructions for Classroom Use Step 1: Provide individual copies of the reading selection (or problems) and the questions with answer choices blanked out. Step 2: Read the passage or problem and write your answer to each question in the blank space where the multiple-choice answers would have been. Step 3: Share your answers with a partner, discussing why you think your answers make sense and pointing out where you found the answers in the passage (either written or inferred) or how you solved the problem. Step 4: Now look at the questions with the multiple-choice answer options. Work with your partner or a team to compare the answers you wrote with the answer choices provided . Look for an answer that is closest to the one you wrote. Your written answers may not be exact matches with the choices provided – select the answer you and your partner (or team) feel is the closest match. Step 5: The whole group or class discusses the answers. For each question, tally how many students chose each suggested answer. Invite students to explain the reasoning behind their choices and the evidence they found to support their answer . Then reveal the “correct” answer to find out how closely their collective reasoning mirrored the way the test-makers understood the question. Spend some time having students talk about why each “right” answer is right, and why some of the wrong answers seemed “right” at first. Step 6: Share actual scores from the past benchmark tests or other tests with students. Questions to ask: How did you score this time? If your score was different this time, what caused the difference? How can you use this strategy when you take the next test or CST?

 Student Cue Card Step 1: Read the passage or problem and write your answer to each question in the blank space where the multiple-choice answers would have been. Step 2: Share your answers with a partner, discussing why you think your answers make sense and pointing out where you found the answers in the passage or how you solved the problem. Step 3: Now look at the questions with the multiple-choice answer choices. Work with your partner or a team to compare the answers you wrote with the answer choices provided .
