Prescriptive intervention and common assessment shared

  1. 1. Intervention andCommon FormativeAssessmentTroy MooneyLife SchoolAugust 8, 2012
  2. 2. The Big 4 Questions What do we want our students to know?  TEKS  Assessed curriculum  Scope and Sequence How will we know if they know it?  Observation  Assessments and Common Formative Assessments  STAAR/EOC
  3. 3. The Big 4 Questions Whatwill we do for those who don’t know what we want them to know?  Move on  Reteach Whatwill we do for those who master what we want them to know?  Make them wait on the rest  Make them do the intervention anyway  Enrichment
  4. 4. Immediate Incremental Intervention What is it?  Intervention  Incremental  Immediate Where in schools do we already see Immediate Incremental Intervention?
  5. 5. Immediate Incremental Intervention
  6. 6. Immediate Incremental Intervention Provide immediate feedback all throughout practice(formative assessment) Use intervention to work on skills that the student has not mastered Use assessment results to plan and adjust instruction and intervention
  7. 7. Prescriptive InterventionIntervention that is specificallyappropriate for the individualneeding assistance
  8. 8. What is not Prescriptive Intervention? Grouping students together with others who made approximately the same score on a recent test or benchmark Placing every student of the same grade level into the same intervention regardless of need Failing to regularly adjust interventions and regroup students based on assessment results
  9. 9. The Evolution of Intervention Plans
  10. 10. During the School Day Intervention Problems with afterschool only solutions Problems with in-class only solutions Duringthe School Day Intervention is the foundation, the other solutions build from there but cannot be the foundation
  11. 11. Evolution of Intervention: Choice 1 Put all of the struggling students in the same class, but give them the best teacher
  12. 12. Evolution of Intervention: Choice 2 Assignall students extra classes for subjects in which the campus has deficiencies An upgrade to choice 2 would be to only assign those students with deficiencies an extra class
  13. 13. Evolution of Intervention: Choice 3 Pullstudents from Electives and Specials to work on deficiencies An upgrade to choice 3 would be to pull students in groups with those who have similar deficiencies
  14. 14. Evolution of Intervention: Choice 4 Create an intervention period during the day for immediate, incremental, intervention that is prescriptive for each individual student’s needs Allowthose students who do not need intervention to attend enrichment classes, other electives, clubs, or other innovative options
  15. 15. An example of Choice 4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8DQ ugVxHv0&feature=player_embedded
  16. 16. Some other tips for Choice 4 Place students in intervention groups before school starts Do not preclude students from specials and electives All available staff assist during intervention period Teachers or grade level teams conduct weekly reviews of intervention groups, activities, and assessment results
  17. 17. Discussion Howdo you and your campus currently handle intervention efforts?
  18. 18. Common Formative Assessments
  19. 19. What is Formative Assessment?A physical exam rather than an autopsy
  20. 20. What is Formative Assessment? Test, Teach, and Now what vs. Test, Teach and Move on An assessment that will be used for instruction rather than only for a grade (which usually signifies the end of instruction to the student)
  21. 21. What is Formative Assessment? Includesdescriptive feedback rather than only a grade Guides reteach and intervention Providesstudent with understanding of their mastery level
  22. 22. Common Formative Assessments Developed by the staff Based on the scope and sequence, administered on a schedule (window) Reviewed and checked by the staff and curriculum department Administered at regular intervals
  23. 23. Common Formative Assessments Used to measure student mastery not staff performance Results are shared to all Interventions and groups are planned based on results Spiraled content from previous assessments
  24. 24. CFAs and Curriculum Alignment CFAsare a good check for curriculum alignment  Poorly delivered instruction that is aligned is superior to well delivered instruction that is not aligned to assessment or curriculum
  25. 25. Other Benefits of CFAs CFAs tell us how all of our students (especially struggling) are doing CFAs tell us about the success of our instruction CFAs are formative and not summative, they are for adjusting instruction and selecting and planning for intervention, not for teacher evaluation
  26. 26. Some Thoughts on Assessment Weneed assessment because students don’t learn all that we teach. If they did we would not need grade books.
  27. 27. Some Thoughts on Assessment Weneed assessment because we can’t predict what students will learn no matter how we design the lesson
  28. 28. Some Thoughts on Assessment Too many tests!  Do all assessments have to be tests?  CFAs may replace some of your existing tests
