GAINS Education Group
We are headquartered in
Schaumburg, Illinois, and founded in
2005 by a team of former high
school assessment analysts.
We support schools and districts in
their efforts to use standards-based
assessment data to improve student
learning.
The Current Context in Education:
Concern
Overall, it is believed that students educated in the
United States are not competitive in a global
economy.
Parents
Government
Universities
Business
Community
The Solution to our Current
Education Concern:
Accountability
Entrance
Testing
Systems
Accreditation
Monitoring
Initiatives
Standardized
Testing
A Better Solution is
Standards-based Education
It is grounded in the belief that all students can
learn.
Curriculum
Limits coverage and
encourages the use of
multiple resources
Assessment
Standards
Provides clear
expectations and an
articulated focus within
and across grade levels
Instruction
Encourages learning to
occur in different
amounts and different
ways
Includes monitoring
and feedback through
formative assessment
and the evaluation of
achievement through
summative assessment
Standards-based Education
A system in which curriculum, instruction and assessment
are aligned with predefined standards.
The Goal: Teachers will be able to:
Understand
benchmarks with
curriculum and
instruction
the OCS benchmarks
Align
Analyze
formative
data and make
adjustments in
classroom learning
Make
Administer
classroom
formative assessments
Administer
classroom
summative assessments
that provide data to make
decisions
adjustments in the classroom and in the
school that “cause” student learning
Typical Flaws in Standards
Flaw
Solution
1. Too much content (in the
collection as a whole)
1. Focus on the essential skills and
knowledge
2. Low level rigor in skills and
knowledge
2. Begin with the end in mind and
backward design for increasing
levels of rigor year after year
3. Multidimensionality
3. Write benchmarks so that each
reflects a single dimension or trait
to be assessed
4. Long lists of single-item
standards
4. Aggregate standards by topics
or strands
