This webinar is designed with the following ‘end in mind’: To understand our schools’ process for conducting spring screening To review how to conduct curriculum-based measure screening for reading.
Universal screening will include entire student body and will be conducted three times a year; fall [sept. – oct.]; winter [dec-feb], and spring [may-june]. In the past we have had a wealth of support; from ADR, CATS, Ifs [all external forces] as opposed to using internal resources. For our spring screening, we will rely on our internal resources. To do this we must all do what we can and have an ‘all hands on deck’ approach and attitude. ISS, Read 180 and Corrective Reading will all be suspended for the day to ensure those teachers can help with screening.
To expedite the process:
To allow everyone an opportunity to receive experience screening in this process, we will screen only one grade level per period. For each grade level, during their assigned period, science is screened first, followed by social studies. This should allow those two classes to be screened prior to switching mid-block. The success of screening students is in having them ‘on deck’ – For example; if we have 16 screeners, initially, we should start with 20 ~22 students, so as one finishes the approximately 5 minutes of screening, the next student is ready to roll. Mrs. Van Vliet will be coordinating the flow of students by call into your room. Administration will be providing guidance and monitoring of students in the hallway. Teachers should be watching and monitoring students as they work their way into hall.
3 rd block we will screen 8 th graders. Any missed students will be picked up during 5 th block.
4 th block will be out biggest and trickiest – due to the size of 7 th grade and lunch scheduling. We will try to complete science and social studies before lunch and ask all teachers conducting screening [8 th grade, EC, Ledbetter, Ambrosini] to eat lunch with 7 th grade. After lunch we will resume, and will probably not complete – leaving Stiles/McEntee classes to be completed by 7 th grade teachers during 5 th block.
If there are missed students and possibly at least 50 7 th grade students that will be screened to allow 7 th grade teachers ample opportunity to gain comfort with the Reading CBM.
Administrative Leadership team will work to conduct make up screening on Friday, May 25 th
Three probes are needed for each grade level screening. They will be provided. You will only need to show up in the media center with your Aimsweb login information. Just as with your NCWise or email password information, it is important that you keep this information confidential.
