Sam Houston STaR Chart Data Analysis

  1. 1. SAM HOUSTON STaR Chart Data<br />A Representation of Data and Process for Improvement<br />
  2. 2. Purpose and Intent<br />The Texas Campus STaR Chart is an assessment tool designed in response to the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. <br />As apart of the act, all eighth grade students will be proficient and technologically literate. <br />The STaR Chart is used to rate the resourcefulness of campuses and districts and is also a source of information for technology funding.<br />
  3. 3. Purpose and Intent<br />The Texas Campus STaR Chart rates campuses on the following progress indicators:<br />Key Area I: Teaching and Learning<br />Key Area II: Educator Preparation and Development<br />Key Area III: Leadership, Administration and Instructional Support<br />Key Area IV: Infrastructure for Technology<br />
  4. 4. Purpose and Intent<br />Each campus is rated on 4 Levels of Progress:<br />Early Tech: Beginning stages of technology implementation. Resources not adequate for technology integration. Training is minimal and there is not campus technology plan.<br />Developing Tech: Technology use is primarily carried out by the teacher. Resources are adequate but can be improved. Approximately 40% of educators meet standards.<br />Advanced Tech: Teacher as facilitator; Technology integration is visible and there is a full-time technology resource on campus.<br />Target Tech: All rooms are connected and the school is fully equipped. Teacher is a facilitator, mentor and co-learner. Technology in lessons is a common occurrence and there is a campus plan directed at student success.<br />
  5. 5. Purpose and Intent<br />In this presentation, I will present the summary for Sam Houston High School for four years, evaluate the classification areas and assess how we can improve. <br />

  8. 8. What the Data Shows<br />In all areas, beginning in the school year 2008 – 2009, there has been a decline in all areas. <br />In order to understand the significance, it is important to understand the differences within each key area and how the designation impacts our campus report.<br />Lets look at each Key Area.<br />
  9. 9. Key Area I: Teaching and Learning<br />Rated on 6 focus areas:<br />Patterns of Classroom Use<br />Frequency/Design of Instructional Setting Using Digital Content<br />Content Areas Connections<br />Technology Application (TA) TEKS Implementation<br />Student Mastery of Technology Applications (TA) TEKS<br />Online Learning<br />
  10. 10. Key Area I: Teaching and Learning<br />Declines were seen in all areas. <br />This key area has remained low. <br />This area focuses on the use of technology in the classroom by both teacher and student.<br />Teachers are expected to model technology and provide lessons that actively use technology.<br />
  11. 11. Key Area II: Educating Preparation and Development<br />Rated on 6 focus areas:<br />Content of Professional Development<br />Models of Professional Development<br />Capabilities of Educators<br />Access to Professional Development<br />Levels of Understanding and Patterns of Use<br />Professional Develo9pment for Online Learning<br />
  12. 12. Key Area II: Educating Preparation and Development<br />Consistently low over the past 3 years.<br />Addresses the district need to provide adequate training to teachers.<br />Professional development is a requirement; frequency and quality of training is tied to the success in this key area.<br />

  17. 17. Solutions for Improvement <br />Money from the TIPS Grant will be used to order laptops for our campus. <br />A technology specialist has been hired to service our campus technology needs.<br />Campus has been rewired with technology upgrades.<br />Administration has continued to share the vision of the campus.<br />Provide adequate onsite professional development opportunities to assist teachers in integrating technology into the classroom.<br />Ensure that teachers and students are aware of the Technology Application (TA) TEKS and how to master them.<br />
