WEIGHING THE PIGS DOESN’T MAKE THEM ANY
FATTER!!!
THREE WAYS TO GET
BETTER FIGURES
1. Distort the figures.
2. Distort the system. Get
demonstrated results at
the expense of other
results.
3. Improve the system.
Brian Joiner, Joiner Associates
“ Wherever there’s fear, you’ll get wrong figures. It’s what
people think that counts.”
David Langford
WHAT CAN WE DO TO RAISE OUR SCORES?
1. Quality teachers and rigorous, relevant curriculum have
the greatest impact. There is no substitute for quality
instruction in the classroom.
2. Use data for school improvement and to assist individual
students.
-
Revisiting curriculum and instruction
-
Integrate targeted ACT prep activities and remediation
3. Appropriate interventions at all 3 tiers
4. Stakeholder involvement ( Students, Parents, admin.
Board) ** building a culture focused on College and
Career readiness

Student Data Analysis
A 4-step process
1.Identify the incorrect answers
2.Determine cause of incorrect
response
3. Identify and prioritize
improvements
4.Complete T-Chart
SAMPLE: Test Results Item Analysis sheet
EXPLORE MATH 04A -STUDENT SCORE REPORT and test booklets Item Analysis for Students
STEP ONE: As you review the MATH section questions and answers with your teacher, circle whether your answer was correct or
incorrect. This will allow you to focus on the strong items as well as those that may need to be readdressed. NOTE- Look closely at the
number of the test item; they are not in order. They are grouped by the skill being measured.

STEP TWO: Look carefully at the question and try to decide what caused you to select the wrong answer and make notes in the area
provided.
•
Is it a content problem (something that you have not yet learned or mastered)?
•
Is it the question type (perhaps you are unfamiliar with the way the question is worded or how the information is presented)?
•
Is it a testing issue (did the you get tired of testing or run out of time or just make a simple mistake)?
STEP THREE: You now have a more clear indication of the areas that you may need to work on after completing steps one and two. On
the back of your student score report there are suggestions of things that you can work on if you have weaknesses in particular
areas. Put check marks next to the suggestions which would help you be prepared for the ACT next school year.
STEP FOUR: Complete the strength and weakness T-chart and the reflection paragraph based on the information you have gathered
from steps one, two and three. This will help you process your areas of strength and weakness and develop an action plan for
improvement.

ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS:
1. How much growth in academic achievement typically occurs
during high school?
2.
Can growth be accelerated so that more students are ready for
college and career when they graduate from high school?
3. Do growth rates differ depending on the degree to
which students are on target to becoming college and
career ready?
AVERAGE GROWTH BETWEEN EIGHTH
AND TWELFTH GRADES

CHART SUMMARY
Groups of students who were on
target in 8th grade were the only
students who stayed on target in
10th grade and went on to become
ready for college level work by
high school graduation.
HELPING STUDENTS SETS ATTAINABLE GOALS
REASONABLE – INDIVIDUAL STUDENT
GROWTH GOALS
ACT RECOMMENDATION
Goal for students off target– On successive tests, reduce by
½ the difference between the students score on a given
subject and the corresponding College Readiness
Benchmark.
Example – Explore Reading student score = 11 ( 4 pts below
benchmark of 15)
PLAN Benchmark for English = 17
4/2 = 2
17 – 2 = 15 therefore the growth goal for this student is to get
a 15 on the PLAN reading test.
ACT RECOMMENDATION FOR
GROWTH GOALS
Goal for students nearly on target in 8th grade – Meet
benchmarks on the PLAN and exceed benchmarks on ACT .
Goal for students on target at 8thgrade – Exceed benchmark
scores on PLAN and ACT by 2 – 3 pts. or more
OR have students focus on the post secondary goals

ITEM RESPONSE - WHAT IT SHOWS US:
 Percentage who selected the
correct and incorrect response for
each question.
 Average percentage who
responded correctly in each
content area.
 Reference group results to show
comparison.
ITEM ANALYSIS BY TEACHERS/DEPARTMENTSTODAYS WORK
Goal: Analyze student data to inform strengths
and weaknesses in curriculum and instruction.
4 Steps:
1. Complete the analysis worksheet for the
reading test.
2. Create Strengths and Weaknesses charts.
(B.O.B.’s & W.O.W.’s)
3. Complete Content Expectations Chart
4. Complete School Improvement Planning
Template
ITEM ANALYSIS BY TEACHERS
STEP 1 – COMPLETE THE ITEM ANALYSIS WORKSHEET.
DEPARTMENT - Look at the test booklets and the actual items. Then look at this years Item
Response data, and considering the last three years data ( if available) determine the appropriate
percentage to isolate items which are Strengths and Weaknesses . At what % will you consider
the items to be a curriculum and/or instructional Strength and Weakness?
INDIVIDUALLY - Complete the worksheet notes as you look over the test booklet.
Then discuss as a department:
Why do you think your students did well on the strengths items?
Why do you think your students did not do well on the weakness items?
ITEM RESPONSE SUMMARY REPORT
CCRW Manual p. 94
Math: PLAN Test Results Item Analysis for Staff
STEP ONE: As you review the Math section questions and answers, if the students have an _____% or higher on an item,
circle “strength” and if the students have a _____ % or less on an item, circle “weakness.” This will allow us to focus on
very strong items and those that we need to readdress. INDIVIDUALLY make any necessary notes that you notice about
each type of question (content issue, question type or testing issue).

Social Studies
Use the diagrams below to answer questions 5-8. On the left is a climograph for southern Africa, the right is a
map showing the direction ocean currents move on the east and west coast of the country. Southern Africa is in the
southern hemisphere, so the warmer regions should be in the north and cooler regions should be farther south.

I get the support I need from my teachers.
I usually feel nervous/stressed/anxious about test taking.
The classes at my school are interesting and challenging.
I learn a lot from working in groups.
The classes I am taking are properly preparing me for life beyond high
school.
6. I know where to get help when I am struggling in school.
7. I have a career and/or college plan after high school.
POSSIBLE INTERVENTIONS
District Initiative – Pyramid of intervention
training for staff.
District Interventions for Students – Summer
programs, universal screening
Building Interventions – Academic Center
support, Blended Service model, Math Lab,
Reading Lab, Before/ After school academic
support and Title 1 support.
CONCLUSION
Use all ACT data reports as one source to measure student
growth.
Involve students, parents and staff in the data analysis
Much of the ACT is middle school content
Student who are on target tend to stay that way.
Students who are off target need interventions before and
throughout high school
Setting reasonable, yet challenging , growth goals for all
students is one way of helping them stay on track
