Title: NECAP Results and Accountability


1
NECAP Results and Accountability
  • A Presentation to Superintendents
  • March 22, 2006

2
Standard Setting
  • NECAP is criterion-referenced not norm-referenced
  • All three states agreed to use the same standards
  • About 84 teachers from RI were part of the
    standard setting process
  • All teachers in grades 3-8 had the opportunity to
    be part of the standard setting process

3
Keep in mind…
  • NECAP and NSRE are not equated
  • Its not useful or accurate to say were doing
    better or worse than on the NSRE
  • This is the beginning of a new trend line

4
Also keep in mind…
  • The results are comparable, that is, were seeing
    similar patterns of results
  • We have not lowered our expectations for students

5
NECAP Achievement Levels Descriptions
  • Proficient with Distinction Students performing
    at this level demonstrate the prerequisite
    knowledge and skills needed to participate and
    excel in instructional activities aligned with
    the GLEs at the current grade level. Errors made
    by these students are few and minor and do not
    reflect gaps in prerequisite knowledge and skills

6
NECAP Achievement Level Descriptions
  • Proficient Students performing at this level
    demonstrate minor gaps in the prerequisite
    knowledge and skills needed to participate and
    perform successfully in instructional activities
    aligned with the GLE at the current grade level.
    It is likely that any gaps in prerequisite
    knowledge and skills demonstrated by these
    students can be addressed during the course of
    typical classroom instruction.

7
NECAP Achievement Level Descriptions
  • Partially Proficient Students performing at this
    level demonstrate gaps in prerequisite knowledge
    and skills needed to participate and perform
    successfully in instructional activities aligned
    with the GLE at the current grade level.
    Additional instructional support may be necessary
    for these students to meet grade level
    expectations.

8
NECAP Achievement Level Descriptions
  • Substantially Below Proficient Students
    performing at this level demonstrate extensive
    and significant gaps in prerequisite knowledge
    and skills needed to participate and perform
    successfully in instructional activities aligned
    with the GLE at the current grade level.
    Additional instructional support is necessary for
    these students to meet grade level expectations.

Communicating results
  • Provides us with a snapshot of our schools
    (districts) achievement against the GLEs
  • Begins a new trend line for all of us
  • Able to look at grade-by-grade achievement
  • Assists with ongoing instructional and curriculum
    efforts

15
Communicating results
  • Expect to have fewer wide fluctuations in results
    due to changes in test forms

16
RIs Accountability System
  • Proposed Revisions in Support of the
  • NECAP Tests

17
Working assumptions
  • Keep as much as possible from the old system
  • Adjust when necessary
  • Adjust when new flexibilities emerge that benefit
    schools and districts

18
Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs)
  • We are able to keep the same AMOs

19
AMOs continued
  • This is the year that the AMOs jumped to the
    next level
  • For example, the Elementary Reading AMO went from
    76.1 to 80.1
  • This change had an impact on high schools even
    without a change in assessments

20
Index Scale
21
Attribution
  • NECAP tests measure the learning that occurred in
    the prior school year. Therefore, scores will be
    attributed back to the school where the teaching
    took place.
  • Participation rates, however, will be based on
    where the testing occurred.
  • Index scores will be based on the 95 of students
    who took the test. Zeros will not be added to
    schools scores.

22
Cell Size and Error Bands
  • Cell size is 45 for all subgroups and at the
    school/district levels
  • Error Bands

23
Safe Harbor for this year
  • Impossible to calculate because the NSREs and
    NECAP are not equated the scores are not
    comparable
  • Appeal Process Two-step process centered around
    the reduction in the gap between the schools
    index score and the states index score on the
    NSREs and the NECAP
  • Step 1 Reductions in index scores will be
    compared separately for the two tests (for the
    school level and/or subgroup level)
  • 2004 NSRE school to 2004 NSRE state compared to
    2005 NECAP school to 2005 NECAP state
  • Step 2 Reductions in the percentage of students
    below Proficient (Partially Proficient and
    Significantly Below Proficient)
  • One or the other

24
Safe Harbor, continued
  • Schools must have more than 45 students in both
    the NSRE and the NECAP groups before a comparison
    can be made.
  • This could result in a change in the schools
    classification

25
Considerations for principals
  • Ensure that student reports get home to families
  • Host a School Report Night for families and the
    community
  • Think about how to build teacher capacity to use
    assessment results
  • Make everyone aware of support materials
  • Work with School Improvement Teams to use results
  • Take advantage of the test interpretation
    workshops

26
Grades Assessed
  • About 72,000 Rhode Island students in grades
    three through eight took the exam
  • Mathematics Grades 3,4,5,6,7,8
  • Reading Grades 3,4,5,6,7,8
  • Writing Grades 5,8
  • 216,000 students in all three states

27
Test Interpretation Workshops
  • March 27th Marriott 100 430
  • March 28th Marriott 830 1200
  • April 5th Radisson 830 1200
  • April 6th Radisson 100 430
  • April 7th Best Western 830 1200
  • WHO?
  • Curriculum Directors, Principals
  • Lead Teachers, Coaches (substitutes will NOT be
    reimbursed)
  • Register online at iregister.measuredprogress.org

28
Full Academic Year
  • Def. Students enrolled October 1 of the previous
    school year
  • For testing
  • Regardless of length of time enrolled in school,
    all students must take the NECAP test.
  • Students will be included in all assessment
    results.
  • For accountability
  • Students will be removed from accountability
    calculations.

29
Communicating Results
  • NECAP is directly aligned to RIs Grade Level
    Expectations
  • This assessment is designed to be sensitive to
    instructional changes
  • This is the first time that we have information
    that looks at grade-to-grade achievement (3 8)

30
Communicating Results (continued)
  • Districts are in the process of aligning the
    curriculum and instructional practices to reflect
    the GLEs
  • Score reports are designed to provide much more
    information to support school improvement and
    foster conversations between families and
    teachers
  • Analyses How are we able to support students
    learning with respect to the GLEs not Are we
    doing better or worse than we did on the NSRE?

31
Using Results- Some Basics
  • Scale Scores Every grade level is reported as 3
    numbers
  • The first number is always the grade level that
    was assessed
  • The final two numbers reflect the scale- 00 80
  • 40 is always proficient
