Title: Welcome To The November MTL Meeting


1
Welcome To The November MTL Meeting
  • Please move as close to the center of the
    auditorium when selecting your seats.

2
Milwaukee Mathematics Partnership
  • Program Evaluation
  • Year 7 Results
  • Carl Hanssen
  • Hanssen Consulting, LLC
  • November 2010 MTL Meeting

3
Where are we?
  • MMP efforts have been ongoing since 2003
  • This is the 6th year we have been conducting the
    evaluation
  • NSF and MPS Evaluation Efforts have become
    integrated

4
MMP Support
  • Original Phase II funding from NSF
  • Started in 2003-04
  • Currently in 8th year
  • Focus on research and evaluation
  • MPS State of Wisconsin
  • Provides funding for released MTL positions
  • Support for MTS Positions
  • Funding for Evaluation

5
Evaluation Goals
  • Help the MMP better serve its constituents and
    improve its effectiveness
  • Serve the broader mathematics education community
    through documentation and dissemination of MMP
    success factors

6
Key Evaluation Question
What are the critical factors or conditions
promoted by the MMP that are related to student
achievement?
7
Agenda
  1. Released and non-Released MTLs
  2. MMP Involvement
  3. Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching
  4. Social Network Analysis
  5. Breakout Discussion
  6. Upcoming Evaluation Activities

8
1. Released v. non-Released MTLs
  • Key question
  • How does achievement differ in schools with
    released and non-released MTLs?
  • Examine attainment and value added

9
Pre-released MTLs
10
First year released MTLs
11
Second year released MTLs
12
Findings
  • There was an initial bias toward providing
    underperforming schools with a released MTL
  • Over time, the position appears to have been
    effective for helping close the gap between low
    and high performing schools
  • In the most recent year, there is no statistical
    differences in quadrant membership between
    schools with and without released MTLs

13
Small Group Discussion
  • What other factors might help explain these
    findings?
  • How has having a released MTL (or not having a
    released MTL) made a difference in your school?

14
2. MMP Involvement
  • Key Question
  • Is there a relationship between involvement in
    MMP activities and student achievement?
  • Critical Challenge
  • Quantifying involvement

15
Involvement Factors
  • MTL Meeting Attendance
  • Course Enrollment
  • Action Planning
  • Textbook Adoption
  • HS Algebra and Geometry Labs
  • Not all factors were present in
  • each year (05-06 through 08-09)

16
Cumulative Involvement Schools Serving Grade 10
These data are then converted to z-scores And
schools grouped as No-Low-Medium-High
17
Schools with Grade 10 Students
18
Cumulative Involvement Schools Serving Grades 6-8
These data are then converted to z-scores And
schools grouped as No-Low-Medium-High
19
Schools With Grade 6-8 Students
20
Cumulative Involvement Schools Serving Grades 3-5
These data are then converted to z-scores And
schools grouped as No-Low-Medium-High
21
Schools With Grade 3-5 Students
22
Findings
  • Initial results suggest that involvement is a
    predictor of student achievementmost notably
    between the no-involvement and other groups.

23
Small Group Discussion
  • In what ways does involvement in MMP activities
    translate to improved teaching and learning at
    the classroom level?
  • What other factors might help explain these
    results?

24
3. Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching (MKT)
  • Key Question What is the relationship between
    teacher MKT and student achievement?
  • Predict Fall WKCE scores for teachers prior year
    students

25
Teacher MKT Over Time
26
Distribution of 2008-09 Scores
27
WKCE Scores Fall 2009
28
HLM Results
After controlling for grade level, teacher
MKT accounts for 4.6 of variability in WKCE
scores
29
Small Group Discussion
  • What strategies can MTLs use to improve teacher
    MKT?
  • How can the MTSs support these efforts?

30
4. Social Network Analysis
  • Key Question
  • How have school-based networks changed over time?
  • Social Network Analysis conducted in 112 schools
    in Spring 2009

31
SNA Key
  • Maps identify
  • MTL or
  • MTS or
  • Teachers
  • Principal
  • Literacy Coach
  • Others in school
  • Others outside school
  • Statistics
  • Network density
  • In-School density
  • MTL In-Degree
  • MTL Betweeness
  • MTS In-Degree
  • Principal In-Degree

of school-based networks.

Findings
  • Strong networks manifest multiple
    characteristicshigh density, MTL In-Degree
    Betweeness, MTS In-Degree, and Principal
    In-Degree
  • The Release MTL Position may be eroding some
    characteristics of strong networks

38
Small Group Discussion
  • In Social Network terms, how would you describe
    your school?
  • How can MTLs and MTSs support the creation of
    strong distributed leadership in schools?

39
Breakout Discussion
40
Final Thoughts
  • There is no simple answer to the question of what
    drives student achievement
  • Howeverschools that demonstrate strong results
    tend to exhibit many of the positive conditions
    discussed today
