  20. 20. EvaluateDecide on the type of data to use.  State Data – Identify at-risk students  Quarterly Assessments  Unit tests  Testing of Computation Skills
  21. 21. Professional Learning Communities Flexible Grouping• Three times a week, students are administered leveled-timed tests over mathematics facts• Student progress on these timed tests is self-recorded on a bar graph (3rd and 4th grades) and a line graph (5th grade)• Specific learning objectives are identified based on OAA Tests, Quarterly assessments and unit tests• Students are grouped according to mastery of specific Academic Content Standards• Two days a week, time is spent reviewing standards already taught. As students become even more proficient, levels of critical thinking and problem-solving are increased .
  22. 22. Post AssessmentAt the end of the agreed time frame students aregiven post assessments . Post assessments vary fromgroup to group due to levels of skills.However, groups at the same skill level are givencommon assessments.
