  1. NORWELL PUBLIC SCHOOLS July, 2013 DDM DEVELOPMENT& ANALYSIS:OUR APPROACH

  2. OUR TIMELINE • Summer, 2012 • Review Model System • Planned for Pilot Roll-Out • Determined department(s)/level(s) • Determined method (local norm development) • Fall, 2012 • Initial Introduction to DDMs • Began with K-12 Specialists • Art, Music, Physical Education, Special Education, Guidance, Nurses, Psychologists, etc. • Trained Secondary Content Coordinators NORWELL PUBLIC SCHOOLS 21st Century Schools for 21st Century Students

  3. OUR TIMELINE (continued) • Winter, 2013 • Pilot Administration begins • Required a lot of support and encouragement • Initial Data Analysis • Administrator Training on Analysis Method/Norming • Spring, 2013 • Initial Norm development • Individual discussions with each teacher (centrally led to build building capacity) NORWELL PUBLIC SCHOOLS 21st Century Schools for 21st Century Students

  4. DEVELOPING LOCAL NORMS • First…what’s a norm? • a statistical concept in psychometrics representing the aggregate responses of a standardized and representative group are established for a test, against which a subject/s is/are compared • Second…what do they do? • Norms allows a comparison between a single score to the entire population of others who have taken the same test.

  5. DEVELOPING LOCAL NORMS • Student A • English: 15 • Math: 22 • Art: 116 • Social Studies: 6 • Science: 70 • Music: 35 • We learned early on that we needed a process that would create one universal measurement unit to discuss student progress.

  6. HOW? • Step One • Calculated the difference between Post and Pre • Step Two • Find the mean (average) the difference scores • Step Three • Find the standard deviation of the difference scores NORWELL PUBLIC SCHOOLS 21st Century Schools for 21st Century Students

  7. HOW? • Now, we’re ready to “transform” the difference scores into a universal measurement system. • Step Four • Calculate the z-score of each individual difference score • (observation – Mean) • Z = ------------------------------------ • Standard Deviation • Step Five • Calculate percentile rank for each z-score NORWELL PUBLIC SCHOOLS 21st Century Schools for 21st Century Students

  8. WHAT THE PROCESS TAUGHT US • Need for a normally distributed population • Are all students being reached? • Robust Tool • Almost all teachers, after initial discussions, wanted/needed to revise their tools • Outlier examination/removal (discussions) • Made for simpler reliability and validity testing (once population is built) NORWELL PUBLIC SCHOOLS 21st Century Schools for 21st Century Students

  9. LEADING AND SUPPORTING DISCUSSIONS WITH TEACHERS • Potential for Powerful Conversations • “ah-ha” moments • Re-thinking classroom instruction • Re-thinking student ability/disability • Change of Perception • Shift from “achievement” to “progress/gain” • On-going conversation is essential • No longer “afraid” of DDMs – understood and, in many instances, supported • Building Leadership essential NORWELL PUBLIC SCHOOLS 21st Century Schools for 21st Century Students

  10. THE ROAD AHEAD • What is “high”, “moderate”, “low” impact? • Percentile rank ranges? • Essential that a population data-set is built • Allows us to create level-specific norms (standard/advanced; college prep/honors/AP) • Partnering with other local districts on norming and population development • Looking for others to share/partner in the development of reliable, valid tools!
