Title: West Virginia Achieves Professional Development Series


1
West Virginia Achieves Professional Development
Series
Volume IX
Monitoring Systems for Quality Curriculum and
Instruction
2
West Virginia Department of Education Mission
  The West Virginia Department of Education, in
conjunction with the Regional Education Service
Agencies and the Office of Performance Audits,
will create systemic conditions, processes and
structures within the West Virginia public school
system that result in (1) all students achieving
mastery and beyond and (2) closing the
achievement gap among sub-groups of the student
population.
3
Robert Hutchins The Conflict in Education in a
Democratic Society
Perhaps the greatest idea that America has given
the world is education for all. The world is
entitled to know whether this idea means that
everybody can be educated or simply that everyone
must go to school.
4
What We Know
  • An emerging body of research identifies
    characteristics of high performing school
    systems.
  • These school systems have made significant
    progress in bringing all students to mastery and
    in closing the achievement gap.
  • These systems share characteristics described in
    The West Virginia Framework for High Performing
    Schools.

He who stops being better stops being good.
-Oliver Cromwell
7
TWO Major Tasks
  • 1. Implement strategies to catch up students
    who are currently behind.
  • 2. Build the systems that will prevent students
    from falling behind in the future.

8
Curriculum Pillar
  • Development of a curriculum monitoring process
    such as Classroom Walkthroughs to gather
    information for continuous improvement

9
Instruction Pillar
  • Use of an instructional monitoring system such
    as walkthroughs that collects data for school and
    district improvement, teacher support, and school
    improvement.

10
School Effectiveness Pillar
  • a consistent district-wide school improvement
    process that includes a district monitoring
    system that requires continuous progress and
    accountability for results as outlined in the
    school and district plans.

11
Student/Parent Support Pillar
  • A data-based system for monitoring student
    success and targeting interventions.

12
Essential Question
  • How is Monitoring KEY to improving student
    learning for ALL and closing the achievement gap?

13
FOCUS
  • 1. WHAT monitoring is and is not..
  • 2. WHY monitoring is important
  • 3. HOW monitoring can realistically be
    implemented

14
Research on High Performing School Systems
  • Schools CAN make a difference.
  • Teachers CAN make a difference.
  • High yield, research based instructional
    strategies and practices CAN make a difference.

15
Where there is one, there can be more than one!
16
(P QT I ISA) Professionalism Quality
Training Implementation Improved Student
Achievement?
  • (P QT I (CPQ) M ISA)
  • Professionalism Quality Training
    Implementation Consistently, Pervasively, and
    with Quality Monitoring Improved Student
    Achievement?
  • YES!!!

17
Monitoring is the critical KEY
  • to unlocking the door to increased student
    achievement!

18
Just because a school has provided training in a
new intervention does not mean that staff members
are actually using it. In fact, it is not
uncommon for an intervention to be considered
ineffective when, in fact, the intervention was
only partially implemented. -Robert Marzano
19
HOW CAN WE..
  • KNOW that effective instruction is taking place?
  • KNOW what is going well, what is not going well,
    and what is needed to improve?
  • ASSURE that these high yield strategies and
    practices are being implemented?

? ? ? ? ?
20
THE ANSWER IS.
  • a process that gathers information, analyzes the
    information, provides feedback to the teacher(s),
    and results in a plan of action for continuous
    improvement
  • A SYSTEMIC MONITORING PROCESS!

21
STOP
  • 1. In groups of 3 4, determine
  • The similarities of the members of your group
  • The differences of the members of your group
  • 2. Each group be prepared to share.

22
MONITORING VS. EVALUATION
  • Read the selected excerpts on monitoring and, in
    your groups, list the ways monitoring is
  • 1. SIMILAR to evaluation, and
  • 2. DIFFERENT from evaluation

23
Similarities of Monitoring and Evaluation
  • Provide formative and on-going assessment
  • Gather data to see what is and isnt working
  • Encourage reflection on data
  • Measure progress
  • Support and assistance
  • Use a criteria
  • Focus on improvement
  • Encourage self-assessment
  • Emphasize results
  • Give feedback
  • Involve some type of observation
  • Promote action
  • Have a goal to improve student achievement
  • Results in school improvement

24
DIFFERENCES Between Evaluation and Monitoring
  • EVALUATION MONITORING
  • People Practices
  • Formal Informal
  • Longer time Shorter time
  • Internal External/Internal
  • Autopsy Pulse

25
A SIMPLE DEFINITION OF MONITORING IS
  • the gathering of data to see what is working,
    what isnt, and what is needed to improve.

26
STOP
  • Individually create a metaphor (simile) that
    completes this sentence
  • Monitoring is like ______because ________.

27
WHY do we monitor?
  • When we do the best that we can, we never know
    what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the
    life of another.
  • -Helen Keller

28
What gets measured gets done.
  • Schools are no exception.
  • Exemplary practices that must get done must be
    monitored and measured.
  • All high performing school systems have a
    systemic process for monitoring the
    implementation of practices
  • Consistently Pervasively - Quality

29

30
Monitoring
  • Leads to unity of purpose
  • Everyone is working to find solutions
  • The focus is on quality rather than just doing
    it
  • Continuous improvement for teachers as well as
    students is the expectation
  • Finding effective ways to gather data on how
    well implementation of a particular initiative is
    taking place in a school will make the difference
    between
  • being adequate or exemplary
  • being mediocre or excellent!

31
  • Now that we know
  • WHAT monitoring is and is not
  • WHY monitoring is important to
  • student achievement.
  • The next question is
  • HOW do we begin the monitoring process?

32
Monitoring for Success 10 Step Systemic Process
  • Clarify purpose and identify roles/responsibilitie
    s
  • Select a focus
  • Identify acceptable evidence of success
  • Determine process for gathering data
  • Identify instruments for data gathering and
    recording
  • Train monitors
  • Prepare staff
  • Conduct the monitoring
  • Analyze data and share results
  • Determine plan of action

33
HOW can it be done in a realistic way?
34
Classroom Walkthroughs
  • Data in a Day
  • Learning Walks
  • Instructional Walks
  • 5 x 5s
  • Walk Abouts
  • Management by Walking Around

35
STOP
  • Read your assigned article.
  • In table groups, share key ideas from the
    articles.
  • New insights about monitoring will be shared
    through a Fold Over Letter

36
Common Elements
  • Short period of time (5-15 minutes)
  • Internal and/or external teams
  • Communication with staff
  • Acceptable evidence
  • Focused observations
  • Data gathering and recording
  • Debriefing/feedback
  • Action plan
  • Schoolwide picture through many small snapshots

37
Michael Fullen states that the success of
implementation is highly dependent on the
establishment of effective ways of getting
information on how well or poorly change is going
in the school or classroom. Mike Schmoker,
Results the Key to Continuous School Improvement
38
Data Gathering Tools
  • Checklists
  • Rubrics
  • Look Fors and Ask Fors
  • Student Interviews (Ask about EQ)
  • Anecdotal Notes
  • Self Assessment Rubrics
  • Palm Pilots

39
Walkabout.
  • In groups, walk around the room and write all
    possible responses to the questions posted on
    flip charts.
  • What is monitoring?
  • Why is monitoring important?
  • What are the benefits of the Classroom
    Walkthrough?
  • What key idea will you remember?

40
Essential Question
  • At each table, reach consensus on one sentence
    that answers the Essential Question
  • How is monitoring KEY to improving student
    learning for ALL and closing the achievement
    gap?
  • Be prepared to share with the whole group.

To accomplish great things, we must not only
act, but also dream not only plan, but also
believe!

The greater danger for most of us is not that
our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it
is too low and we reach it.
