Higher Expectations
for all our Students
The Waiver from NCLB has a major
impact on standards, assessment,
accountability, and graduation
requirements
 The goal is for students to navigate
through a challenging curriculum and be
prepared for a college or career upon
high school graduation.

More Additional Resources
As we continue to move forward with
unified messaging, DPI is also creating many
documents that can help in these efforts to
explain all these changes to your
constituents.
 Numerous fact sheets, presentations, and
letters are available, with more documents
to come as created.

DPI going a new Direction

Content and Learning Team is dividing
A NEW Common Core Implementation
Team is being created.
◦ Led by Emilie Amundson, Director
◦ Will contain all Math, ELA, Literacy folks.
◦ Diana Kasbaum, Tamara Maxwell plus new hires in
each content area. Also Reading and all Literacy.
Will start building on “Investigations” work and
help develop curricular resources.
Will work with IHEs, CESAs, and other
stakeholders to develop and disseminate curricular
resources.
CESA 8 School Improvement 2012
New Assessments are coming:
Proficiency will be measured by new assessments:
WKCE  Smarter Balanced (2014-15)
WAA-SwD  Dynamic Learning Maps (2014-15)
ACCESS  ASSETS (2015-16) for ELL students
 New assessments and Common Core instructional
resources will incorporate Universal Design for Learning
principles.
 New Kindergarten assessment, as required in Act 166, is a
screener used to identify struggling readers as soon as
possible.
Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS)
developed by the University of Virginia.
PALS reading screener begins immediately
(2012-13)

CESA 8 School Improvement 2012
PALS Literacy Screener Information




Wisconsin Act 166 requires that an early literacy screener
be administered to all kindergarten students.
DPI was charged with selecting a screener that:
◦ Is valid and reliable
◦ Assesses phonemic awareness and letter sound
knowledge
◦ Will begin in the 2012-2013 school year
PALS data should be used to inform early childhood
instruction. Screeners are an effective component to an
early warning system.
PALS is a screener. It is not part of the School Report
Card and is not to be used for accountability purposes.
CESA 8 School Improvement 2012
As we prepare for the
new report card…….
Understand that cut scores have changed.
 Previous cut scores were as low as 13.5
percent to pass a level of proficiency.
 Now, it will take an average 64% in
reading and a 52% in math to meet the
new levels.
 Advanced for both is in the mid 90%
 This new system sets a bar that kids must
pass.

These changes lead to our new
accountability report card:
Differentiated Accountability and Support
 The new accountability system has been
built around four priority areas, to allow
for differentiated reporting across
multiple measures.
 Instead of only using state test scores to
measure school effectiveness, the new
system uses multiple measures.
CESA 8 School Improvement 2012
Priority Areas
Student Achievement
An indication of how the students’ level of knowledge and skills in a
school compares against state and national standards.
Student Growth
An indication of how rapidly a school’s students are gaining
knowledge and skills from year to year. This area focuses not on
attainment, but the pace of improvement in student performance, no
matter where students begin. All improvement is treated as a
positive.
Closing Gaps
An indication of how much the school is contributing to the closing
of statewide achievement gaps.
On-track to Graduation/Postsecondary Readiness
An indication of how successfully students are achieving educational
milestones that predict postsecondary success.
18

Accountability
Index
A comprehensive accountability index has replaced the AYP pass-fail
system. AYP reports are gone; accountability reporting will now be done
with School Report Cards (2011-12).

The index is a composite of sub-scales that measure performance across
four priority areas :
Student Achievement
Student Growth
Closing Gaps
On-track to Graduation/Postsecondary Readiness

The index score is on a 0–100 scale. Sub-scale scores as well as the index
score will be reported to enhance transparency and differentiation.

Student Engagement indicators, if missed, result in a deduction to index
score
Test Participation Rate
Absenteeism Rate
Dropout Rate

Looking at a trajectory of expected
performance of students
Will give points for growth across
categories
◦ A point for every category you move up
◦ Ex: Minimal to Advanced earns 3 points,
proficient to Advanced earns 1point.

Will deduct points for regression
◦ Only proficient to basic/ minimal
◦ Ex: Proficient falling to minimal loses 2
points
◦ Basic students who fall will lose points in
an overall complex formula
