 Need a question about preliminary results!
 What data are essential to ensuring continuous
improvement? (strand 2)
 Where can administrators find state assessment and report
card data? (strand 1)
 What tools can be used to help focus analysis, planning and
evaluation? (strand 2)
Broadly Explore Successes & Challenges
Start with OAKS
results to narrow
the focus for
digging deeper at
the classroom
level.

Hypothesize Improvement
Strategies
Use student and
adult data collected
locally to dig deeper
and gain clearer
insights.

 Subtest or Strand scores are based on
fewer items
 Fewer items = greater measurement
error = lower reliability of scores
 Use with caution
 Understand this limitation
 Triangulate—look for convergent
evidence to develop interventions or
instructional plans for students.

 Measures of error for group scores tell you how
much confidence you can have that you’ve
pinpointed the group’s actual performance
(provides a range or band of scores)
 Influenced by size of group and the size of the
range of the scores of students in the group
 Student level—provides a range of values that
represent the range within which a student would
score again.
 Influenced by number of items a student
answers for a particular score category
 The more items answered, the smaller the
measure of error.
Compare the size of
measurement error for
total mathematics vs.
each of the five
subscores

Use simple or complex
data tools to collect and
organize data and gain
insights from your data.
SMART
Goals
Hypothesize Improvement
Strategies
Use process tools to
winnow data, analyze
for meaning, set
SMART goals,
hypothesize
improvement
strategies and facilitate
decision making.

Antecedents
(organization)
Instructional
Strategies
• Structures and learning conditions that precede and predict results.
These may include planning time, focused resources, intentional
professional development.
• Factors that have a strong correlation with results.
• Teacher-student practices that engage students in thinking. These
practices require training, practice, and ongoing professional development
to implement with mastery.
• These do not necessarily influence student cognition
Causes
(implementation)
• Adult behaviors and routines that create specific effects or results in
student behavior or achievement. These may include classroom
management routines, classroom schedule routines, transition routines, etc.
• These do not necessarily require extensive training to implement with
mastery.
Effect
• Student learning which can be measured by formative, interim, and
summative assessments.
• The measures do not have to be extensive or an additional layer but rather an
intentional use of existing materials and resources
