10:30: Growth Data in Special Education
1:15: Growth Data in Special Education
Using student growth on teacher evaluations through the SLO raises important questions when it comes to the special education population. This includes how to develop and use growth assessments that fit the parameters of the Performance Evaluation Reform Act as well. This workshop will share specific implementation considerations and strategies: from IEP goals and how to measure diverse populations to types of assessments you can use. This workshop is valuable for administrators and educators. We will look at making the SLO learning goal most effective for teachers when applied to specific populations from co-taught classrooms to teachers of low incidence population and itinerant teachers, along with consideration for teachers with changing caseloads.
2:30: Writing Tiered Growth Targets
A one size fits all approach to growth won’t work. Every group of students brings another range of strengths and needs. In this session we will look at ways to group students and write differentiated, tiered targets. We will leverage all types of historical data–from current students to previous cohorts–to write SMART goals. Let’s make our goals rigorous…but realistic too!
