2(b)2(i) - to use multiple sources of data to plan and assess instructional improvement
3.5 Discuss test score analysis with the principal. Discussion should include specific areas of strength, specific areas of concern, measures planned to celebrate areas of strength, measures planned to address areas of concern, and possible additional methods of addressing strengths and concerns. *
The reading data faculty handouts are evidence of Standard 3.5.
In November, all teachers submitted reading level data to me based on assessments from Running Records. I compiled all of the data, determined the students, by grade level and class, who were at benchmark, below benchmark, and above benchmark. I discussed the findings with my principals and based on the findings, we came up with some "reminders" to address the weakness we have been seeing that are listed in the documents. I then met with each teacher individually and pointed out growth in their data, shared the data pages attached and discussed, discussed the weaknesses and reminders, and had each teacher set a personal goal and class goal for the next 7-8 weeks that would help them increase student achievement.
