23
  • CRCT Application
  • State Assessment Data
  • Guidelines and Evaluation

24
Student Achievement Data - State Assessment Data
Guidelines
  • To be considered for Master Teacher
    Certification, an applicant must demonstrate
    evidence of student achievement, which must
    include student progress. 
  • Student achievement CRCT data are required for
    applicants in
  • Grades 2-8 Self-Contained and Departmentalized
    Core Curricular subject areas
  • Specialty groups in some situations EIP, Gifted,
    Co-teaching

25
Student Achievement Data - Teacher Provides
Roster, State Provides Data
  • To be of optimal assistance to our teacher
    applicants, the DOE staff will provide
    appropriate student achievement data from state
    assessment files. 
  • In order to link student assessment data to the
    teacher who delivered the instruction, it is
    necessary for the applicant to provide a complete
    roster of all students assigned during the
    2007-08 and 2008-09 school years. 
  • Rosters must include the 10-digit GTID number for
    each student listed on the required roster
    template in the application. 
  • Once complete, the Local System Operator will
    upload the roster along with other documents to
    the secure PSC portal. Rosters must be submitted
    electronically using the original Excel
    spreadsheet provided scanned rosters or other
    formats will not be accepted.
  • Note  Individuals completing this template will
    be working with sensitive and
  • confidential student data.  All necessary
    security precautions must be followed.

26
Student Achievement Data State Assessment Data
Evaluation Alignment of Subjects to GPS
  • Between 2005-06 and 2008-09, all Georgia
    Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests were
    aligned to the Georgia Performance Standards
    (GPS) curriculum. Due to this alignment,
    comparison for student progress cannot be made in
    subjects whose tests were aligned in 2008-09.
    This subject is Social Studies for Grades 2-6.
  • For more information regarding evaluation
    components, please see the chart on the next
    slide.

27
Implications of Alignment for Determination of
Achievement and Gain
28
Student Achievement Data CRCT State Assessment
Data Evaluation Need for Two Consecutive Years
of Same Curriculum based on either QCC or GPS
  • Assessment data will be reviewed for evidence of
    student achievement and gains.
  • If two consecutive years of comparable CRCT data
    are available, student achievement gains will be
    evaluated by comparing one years CRCT data to
    previous years CRCT data for each student cohort
    relative to the state data.
  • E.g. applicants 2008-2009 5th grade class showed
    comparative progress over their 4th grade
    performance in 2007-2008 and
  • applicants 2007-2008 5th grade class also showed
    comparative progress over their 4th grade
    performance in 2006-2007.
  • If two consecutive years of comparable CRCT data
    are not available for one of the student cohorts,
    then the evaluation for that cohort will be based
    solely on the most recent years achievement
    component.
  • If an applicant teaches multiple subjects or
    grade levels, data will be gathered and evaluated
    from all subjects or the preparation selected.

29
Student Achievement Data State Assessment Data
Evaluation Second Look
  • Because the Criterion Referenced Competency Tests
    (CRCT) do not provide vertically aligned scores
    from grade level to grade level, the evaluation
    criteria have been developed to allow for the
    evaluation of CRCT scale scores from one grade to
    the next. The student cohorts mean scale score
    in year 2 will be compared to the mean scale
    score in year 1 in standard scores (z-scores).
  • Second Looks are provided in both achievement and
    progress criteria.
  • If an applicant does not qualify during the
    initial review of ACHIEVEMENT data, then an
    additional opportunity is provided to meet a
    rigorous PROGRESS requirement. This SECOND LOOK
    will allow teachers who are assigned the most
    challenging students an opportunity to
    demonstrate that they helped students make gains.
  • Similarly, if an applicant does not qualify
    during the initial review of PROGRESS data, then
    an additional opportunity is provided to meet a
    rigorous ACHIEVEMENT requirement. This second
    look will allow teachers who are assigned the
    highest performing students an opportunity to
    demonstrate that they have helped students make
    appreciable gains in the year they taught the
    cohort.

CRCT State and System Mean Scale Scores
Meets and Exceeds Data
  • The State needs both system and state data to
    determine the comparative achievement and
    progress made by applicants student cohort
  • State level CRCT mean scale scores
  • Percent meet and exceed for school, system
    state
  • DOE will provide the state, system and school
    level data
  • Applicant is responsible for completing the
    student roster.

34
Wrap up CRCT Student Achievement and Progress
  • Key Points
  • Student assessment data must show evidence of
  • student achievement and progress.
  • Roster Submission Reminders and Tips
  • Verify that the student GTID numbers submitted
    are accurate.
  • Verify that all GTID numbers are filled in.
  • Verify that the grade level submitted is the
    correct grade level for that student in that
    school year.
  • Verify that students are sorted by subject and by
    grade level (see sample).
  • Verify that the school name entered is the
    correct school for the applicant for that school
    year.

44
Formative Benchmark Assessments
  • The essence of good instruction lies not in
    presentation of content but in assessing
    student learning and coaching students toward
    better performance.
  • Grant
    Wiggins

45
Formative Benchmark Assessments
  • Definition Regularly scheduled assessments
    throughout the year to measure students progress
    toward mastery of standards and provide teachers
    with information about how to adjust instruction
    to improve the learning
  • Based on identified learning standards
  • On-going checkpoints to measure the progress
    students should make toward mastery of the
    standards by the end of the term/year/course.
    Where should students be at different intervals
    in acquiring knowledge and skills in standards?
  • Representative of the content and rigor students
    are expected to master
  • QUESTION What are you doing between the
    benchmarks to adjust/change plans and deliver
    instruction based on evidence of student progress?

46
Examples of Formative Benchmark Assessments
  • Performance Tasks embedded within units
  • Unit Culminating Performance Assessments
  • System benchmark assessments
  • School-scheduled benchmarks by grade level and
    subject/course
  • Teacher-created assessments
  • Commercial assessments, if aligned to identified
    standards

47
Formative Benchmark Assessments
  • How do you use the information from your
    on-going, formative assessments to modify or
    adapt teaching strategies, materials and
    approaches to improve student learning?
  • Its not about giving the assessments its
    about doing something about the results.

  • Doug Reeves

48
Formative Benchmark Assessments and Student
Performance Templates Examples of Questions
  • How did you use the assessment results to adjust
    and deliver instruction for whole groups, small
    groups, sub-groups, and individuals?
