  1. School Improvement Planning withExplore and Plan Data

  2. Wendy Zdeb MASSP Associate Director wendyz@michiganprincipals.org

  3. Finding Your Focus for School Improvement: Linking EXPLORE and PLAN to Effective School Improvement During today’s session we will: • Review basic fundaments of the Explore, Plan and ACT and MME assessments. • Look at the connection between District and School Improvement Goals. • Identify how Explore and Plan results can help to focus SIP and Student Growth Goals. • Discuss ways to include all school stakeholders in the SIP process.

  4. Our Learning Norms… • Take responsibility for your own learning – stay with us • Support the learning of your colleagues – make sure they stay with us • If you need to take a call or have a side conversation, please step into the hall • If you have a question, ask.

  5. To what degree do you believe… All kids can learn? All kids are learning at their highest possible level? All educators can learn? All educators are learning at their highest possible level? Data can target instructional needs? Educators target instructional needs using data? We will need the help of colleagues to meet the needs of all kids?

  6. Beginning with the end in mind…. Michigan Merit Exam

  7. MME Components • ACT – College Readiness • English (18), Reading (21), Science (24), Math (22) • Work Keys – Career • Applied Math, Reading for Info, Locating Information • Michigan Items – Alignment • Social Studies, Science, Math, Writing

  8. Experiencing the ACT

  18. Connecting our current realitywith College Readiness

  19. Alignment with Common Core … not a moving target!

  20. District/Building Goals • Important for everyone to be on the same page. • Belief in a Pre K-12 system • Knowledge of Common Core and College Readiness • Shared vocabulary and expectations • Building on each other’s goals, sharing information and developing commonalities

  21. District Goals • All graduates of the Rochester Community Schools will be College Ready, Career Ready and Life Ready in English Language Arts. • All graduates of the Rochester Community Schools will be College Ready, Career Ready and Life Ready in Mathematics. • All graduates of the Rochester Community Schools will be College Ready, Career Ready and Life Ready in Science.

  22. RHS - SIP Goals Our School Improvement Goals: All students will meet the college readiness benchmark in Reading. All students will meet the college readiness benchmark in Math. All students will meet the college readiness benchmark in Science.

  23. Interventions • District Initiative: Pyramid of Intervention training for Staff. • District Interventions for students: Mandatory Summer programs, Universal Screening. • Building Interventions for students: Academic Center, Blended Service Model, Math Lab, Reading Lab, Study Island, R&R, Homework Lunch, Academic Draft.

  24. District Values • Scholars of Highest Distinction • GPA 3.9 - 4.0 • 4 AP Courses • ACT Score of 32 or higher • Scholars of Distinction • GPA 3.8 • 3 AP Courses • ACT Score of 28 or higher • Scholars of Achievement • GPA 3.5 • 2 AP Courses • ACT Score of 26 or higher

  25. What’s so important about the EXPLORE & PLAN?

  26. Current Testing Pattern • 7th Explore (1-25) • 8th Explore (1-25) • 9th Plan (1-32) • 10th Plan (1-32) • 11th ACT/MME (1-36) • Allows for one year’s measurement of growth and time for inventions. - We conduct these on Feb.10th (late start)

  27. Middle School: The Missing Link • The 1-25 score measured by the Explore are all standards covered in Elementary and Middle School. • Our District is shifting curriculum alignment to the ACT College Readiness Standards (rather than the MEAP). • Elementary and MS have been in-serviced on the Standards and the State is moving to the National Core Standards which are ACT based.

  28. What does this look like? • The ACT Math standards were broken down by GLCEs and HSCEs (Bill Aten). On the next slide, the yellow highlighted standards are actually GLCEs which are found in the Math portion of the ACT.

  29. Predictive Assessments Data Points

  30. What is the relationship between the ACT & MME? First: Spring 2009 11th grade results

  31. What percent of students with each ACT scale score met standards on the MME? Math 41% of the items on MME Math come from the ACT.

  32. What percent of students with each ACT scale score met standards on the MME? Reading 85% of the items on MME Reading come from the ACT.

  33. But students take the ACT & MME at the same time… What is the relationship between the PLAN & the MME? 2007-08 10th grade PLAN with 2008-09 11th grade MME

  34. What percent of students with each PLAN scale score met standards on the MME? Math

  35. What percent of students with each PLAN scale score met standards on the MME? Reading

  36. What is the relationship between the EXPLORE & the MME? 2005-06 8th grade EXPLORE with 2008-09 11th grade MME

  37. What percent of students with each EXPLORE scale score met standards on the MME? Math

  38. What percent of students with each EXPLORE scale score met standards on the MME? Reading

  39. MEAP and MME Elementary and Middle Schools have celebrated incredibly high success rates on the MEAP… • What happens when those “successful” students take the Explore, Plan and ACT?

  40. MEAP vs. MME • Let’s track on student scores from the MEAP to the MME. • Are the students labeled as “proficient” on the MEAP meeting the ACT College Readiness Standards? • It’s all about the cut score!

  41. Fall 2006-07 8th Grade MEAPwithSpring 2009-10 11th Grade MME Based on more than 11,350 Oakland County students who took both tests.

  42. What percent of students in each MEAP scale score range met standards on the MME?

  43. What percent of students in each MEAP scale score range met standards on the MME?

  44. What might be the disconnect?

  45. NEW Cut Scores for MEAP and MME Mathematics

  46. Mathematics Passing Rates (with Previous and New Scores)

  47. Impact of New Cut Scores for MEAP and MME Mathematics (From Spring 2011 MME and Fall 2010 MEAP Data)
