Normes data analysis

  1. 1. Analysis questions to ask, using normes reports….<br />
  2. 2. Growth Summaries…<br />What % of students met expected gains for the year (each group)<br />Any group hugely different from Combined Pop. (% meeting growth?)— Groups? Subjects?<br />How do each grade-level summaries compare in % meeting growth?<br />Do patterns exist—grade level groups? --subgroups perform PERSISTENTLY different?<br />
  3. 3. Growth Rosters &Individual Student Reports<br />Which students didn’t meet expected growth?<br />Is there a pattern among those students?<br />Which students didn’t meet proficiency (lost ground this year)?<br />Is there a pattern?<br />Additional information…..see next slide:<br />
  4. 4. Additional Information for Gr. Roster/Ind. Student Reports<br />What do you know about students’ performance in that subject that could: inform further instructional action or intervention?<br />What add’l. information do you need to guide your decisions about instruction/intervention?<br />What resources do you have to gather that additional information?<br />
  5. 5. Digging into Details,at appropriate levels:<br />Do subgroups demonstrate differences in achievement?<br />Do these differences constitute achievement gaps between groups?<br />Answer the following about those differences:<br />Are those differences large?<br />Are those differences meaningful?<br />Is the school closing any gaps in achievement?<br />
  6. 6. Digging into details, value of identifying MEANINGFUL gaps:<br />Improvement efforts must be based on documented needs rather than perceived needs.<br />For efforts to be effective, MUST identify:<br />Where the achievement gaps exist (schools, classrooms, students)<br />How large the gaps are when they exist<br />Whether the gaps have been persistent OVER TIME<br />
