  • Principal Blurb Language for Newsletter (ELEMENTARY/INTERMEDIATE):
  • This summer, you will receive your child’s results on the annual statewide test. Given that this year’s test is new, you should consider these results a baseline for marking future growth. As we have discussed in recent newsletters, we are in a transition period—we have identified new skills that students should master, we have been teaching those skills in new and novel ways, and now we are assessing progress with a new test. The scores on this test will not be comparable to last year’s annual test scores, as the old test assessed a different set of skills. Additionally, we have raised expectations for what students should be able to do, so this year’s results may show that fewer students have mastered the desired skills. This is OK because we are headed in the right direction. As students spend more time with the new curriculum, their skills will improve.
    When you receive these test results, please support your child in areas that seem to be more challenging, and take time to celebrate all of the different ways in which your child has grown this year. If you have any questions about interpreting the Smarter Balanced Assessment System score report, please feel free to contact me.
  • Principal Blurb Language for Newsletters (HIGH):

    Sometime this summer you will receive your child’s results on the annual statewide test. As we have discussed in recent newsletters, we are in a transition period—we have defined new skills that we believe students should master, we have been teaching those skills in new and novel ways, and now we are assessing progress with a new test. The scores on this test will not be comparable to last year’s annual test scores, as the old test covered a different set of skills. Additionally, we have raised expectations for what students should be able to do, so this year’s results may show that fewer students have mastered the desired skills than we would like.

    You will receive a score report that describes your student’s achievement based on four levels: Level 1, 2, 3, or 4. Students who score at Level 3 or 4 have demonstrated understanding and abilities to be ready to be successful in entry-level, credit-bearing college courses if they continue their progress in 12th grade.

    If your student scores at Level 1 or 2, it does not mean that they should not attend college. We will work with your student to help them make as much progress as possible to be ready. Colleges may require them to take a placement test when they enter and it is possible that they will need to take non-credit courses to catch up on particular knowledge and skills. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or to your student’s counselor to discuss how we can work together to help your student progress.
  • Agenda for August 3 Review of Preliminary Grades 5/8/11 results with Principals:

  • The purpose of this session is to (1) establish common agreements about data norms, (2) develop shared understanding of SBAC Summative results, (3) model the data dialogue for them to replicate with their staff, (4) develop shared understanding of key talking points with teachers and parents. The agenda for this portion is:

    1. INTRO: Review and commit to data principles and safety regulations (10 minutes) –Tanya is creating a set for each principal to take back to their sites and use with staff.

    2. PREDICT: Review predictions on SBAC performance from the media about scores
    dropping and generate some of our own RUSD predictions (5 minutes)

    3. REVIEW AND OBSERVE: Review SBAC Summative results in teams - make
    observations without making any judgments at this point. Groups share out key observations with group (20 minutes)

    4. INFERENCES: Identify inferences, questions about the data (20 minutes)

    5. IMPLICATIONS: Identify implications and next steps, especially as it pertains to key
    talking points and plans for reviewing SBAC data with staff. Review the following key talking points with Principals and rehearse an elevator speech:

    1. These are baseline results and not to be compared to previous STAR tests results

    2. The test is much more rigorous, aligned to much more difficult standards - expect a drop

    3. The SBAC summative results should only be considered a piece of the puzzle that informs instructions - triangulate with interim results, classroom projects, teacher observations, universal screening results, etc.
