4. Reflection synopsis of the PARCC reports.

Questions to Reflect

Compile responses and copy and paste the response to one submitted Google form for your team. (Choose either A. STAR 360 or B. Early Literacy questions- depending on your grade level). If asked, compare with PARCC/ Common Core Standards.

A. Key questions for STAR Assessment- STAR Reading and Math Teams

https://help.renaissance.com/SM/whichreport


1. Using the Screening Report- Indicate the number of students at, above, or below.


2. Using the Diagnostic Report- Identify the number of students in the 10th, 20th 25th, 40th, 50th, 75th, and 90th percentile. (75th percentile or above = 4 or 5 on PARCC)


3. Using the Diagnostic Report- Review Domain Scores- Go to the resource tab and select " Enter into Core Progression for Reading". Review your grade level core progressions.


Based on the core progressions:


4. What supports are needed for the students that are in the at/above category?


5. What supports are needed for students on watch, or intervention category?


6. What supports are needed for students in the urgent intervention category?


7. Reflection synopsis of the data.

FYI- Adding STAR Spanish

October 2016



STAR Reading Spanish is a customized reading test for students in grades 1–8 to take on a computer.

Teachers can use the Domain Score view and Review Student Results view to determine the reading level of Spanish-speaking students and to measure growth.


What Is a STAR Reading Spanish Class?

Certain STAR Reading Spanish features only apply to students who are enrolled in a STAR Reading Spanish class. So, what makes a class a STAR Reading Spanish class?

When you create or edit classes, you are allowed to choose which Renaissance Place programs will be used in that class. To indicate to the program that a class is a STAR Reading Spanish class, you must choose STAR Reading Spanish (or STAR 360 Spanish if you are using the STAR 360 Suite) for that class. More Information

B. Key questions for STAR Early Literacy Teams

1. Using the Screening Report- Indicate the number of students at/above, on watch, intervention, and urgent intervention?


2. Using the Diagnostic Class Report- Identify the number of students in each skill set that scored between 0-25, 26-50, 51-75, and 76-100


3. Using the Diagnostic Report- Review Domain Scores- Go to the resource tab and select " Enter into Core Progression for Reading". Review your grade level core progressions.


Based on the core progressions:


4. What classroom supports are needed for the students that are in the at/above category?


5. What classroom supports are needed for students on watch or intervention category?


6. What classroom supports are needed for students in the urgent intervention category?


7. Reflection synopsis of the data.

ALL TEAMS Reflect On:

1. Login and view your grade level Screening Report for Reading. Reflect as a team on the key questions found on the bottom of the report. Give a synopsis of your findings.


2. View you grade level Screening Report for Mathematics. Reflect as a team on the key questions found on the bottom of the report. Give a synopsis of your findings.

Visit your STAR Record Book and complete the following tasks:


  • Create instructional groups students based on data
  • Review your building progress monitoring plan
  • Set a progress monitoring goal in STAR 360 for each student
  • Create a system for students to track their goal


Student Goal Setting Ideas


Progress Monitoring:

All students must have a Progress Monitor goal in STAR 360 by October 31st.

PART TWO: Standard Assessment Inventory Survey (SAI) for Professional Development

Your school administration will have the steps and login "token" for each teacher to take the survey. http://www.sai-learningforward.org/


Note: New teachers to a building do NOT take the survey.
