While we are waiting on a collective decision on how we’re going to be utilizing Edugence for intervention tracking and SST support purposes, let’s not forget how very useful the data that is already there can be.
You have student test scores from previous years. You have curriculum assessment data from this year, in all areas. You have the ability to look at your class as a whole, see which questions were the most missed, what your commended rate was, and how your grade/class did compared to others. If we’ve run your scantrons, you’ll find a district comparison in your box, showing how well we did compared to the district average and individual campuses.Take advantage of all the information at your finger tips.
What do you do with the data that you see/collect? Do what you do best. TEACH. Pat those students who did well on the back. Work in small group interventions within your classroom. While we do have an intervention teacher that assists, YOU are the expert. YOU are the most valuable resource on our campus. YOU are going to be what helps that student improve.
Additional help: once you’re through with IPM in SuccessMaker in the lab with Math, we can set up isolated strands for practice. It can be what they’ve shown difficulty with in the past, or what they are struggling with today. TECHNO TEAMANN TIP: Check the questions they missed on their math CA, check your key, pull that TEK and ask Mr. Martinez to set up a practice strand, just 3-5 minutes long. Watch them get better….
You could also see which question was most missed on your CA and use this document on searching Safari strands by TEK to have a whole group video to show to your students. Safari is like United Streaming…just better, 🙂
I’ll start pulling your students early next week for some podcasting pointers if you’ve sent me names. Get ready, they’re going to come back FIRED up about creating something for you, and I want to see what they can come up with!
It’s going to be good to get back, my LL’s! Hopefully I’ll be able to put this instructional leadership business to good use!!
