Reading and math results from the state assessment systems are the primarydata upon which adequate yearly progress can be determined.
No Child Left Behind

Under NCLB, states must establish three achievement levels based on their standards: advanced, proficient, and basic. The assessments are to measure the level of each student's achievement. The law requires that by 2014 each student in the tested grades must score at least proficient in each tested subject, excluding only severe special needs students and LEP students who have been in the United States less than four years. Reading and math results from the state assessment systems are the primary data upon which adequate yearly progress can be determined.
NCLB requires steady progress toward the goal of all students reaching proficiency within 12 years. After the starting point is determined, the bar must be raised after two years and then every three years. Some schools and districts will start the process below the starting point, while others already have most students at the proficient level. Those that start below the starting point will have to catch up in the first two years.
In addition, within each school and district, each specified subgroup of students special needs, limited English proficient, racial/ethnic minority, and low income must make this state-determined AYP. As students in these groups typically have lower scores, they too may be required to make a larger leap in the first two years. If they do not reach the target, then the school or district has not made AYP.

This book examines, through case studies of elementary and secondary school classrooms, how five schools have developed "authentic," performance-based assessments of students’ learning, and how this work has influenced the teaching and learning experiences students encounter in school. This important and timely book reveals the changing dynamics of classroom life as it moves from more traditional pedagogy to one which asks students to master intellectual and practical skills that are eminently "transferable" to "real-life" social settings and workplaces.

Practicing What We Preach and Evaluating What We Teach:
Portfolios and Process Pedagogy (abstract)
The notion that reading and writing are reciprocal functions, that one activity informs the other, that good readers are good writers, and vice-versa, is the cornerstone of our composition pedagogy at the University of Texas at Arlington. Nevertheless, when it comes time to assess student writing, we find that instructors typically weigh their syllabi heavily in favor of writing assessment. As much as 70 to 90 percent of a student's grade in an introductory level composition class will be determined by grades given to "finished" essays, and my sense is that this trend is not localized. Many writing instructors operate in a similar fashion. This essay will explore ways to bring assessment practice in line with current theory using a portfolio grading system. It will address the various reasons why teachers continue to heavily assess product while claiming to teach process, and it will examine strategies for the assessment of process that foreground the use of portfolios. It will argue that a portfolio system, as a teaching tool, best meets the goals of process-directed theory. Furthermore, it will suggest that portfolios, as tools of assessment, offer proof to our students that we believe what we preach, and that we value what we teach. Alan Taylor

    knowledge of oneself combines sensitivity and responsiveness to learners with theknowledge, skills, understandings, and dispositions to teach mathematics.
    STANDARDS FOR THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF TEACHERS OF MATHEMATICS OVERVIEW This section presents six standards for the professional development of teachers of mathematics:
  • Experiencing Good Mathematics Teaching Knowing Mathematics and School Mathematics Knowing Students as Learners of Mathematics Knowing Mathematical Pedagogy ... The Teacher's Role in Professional Development

  • INTRODUCTION Teaching mathematics is a complex endeavor. It demands knowledge of mathematics, students, and teaching as well as opportunities to apply this knowledge in a variety of field-based settings. It requires an understanding of the impact that socioeconomic background, cultural heritage, attitudes and beliefs, and political climate have on the learning environment. Above all, it entails developing a personal knowledge of oneself combines sensitivity and responsiveness to learners with the knowledge, skills, understandings, and dispositions to teach mathematics. The standards for the professional development of teachers of mathematics address the needs of preservice and in-service teachers of mathematics at the K-1 2 levels. These standards apply to introductory rams that prepare teachers of mathematics; programs that provide advanced study for teachers of mathematics; and various continuing education seminars, workshops, and other learning experiences in which hers of mathematics participate throughout their careers.

    Teach for Tomorrow is high quality, low-cost, reality-based Internet training for K-12 educators.
    The online materials can be used independently at the time and location most convenient. However, the ideal implementation model is a hybrid of independent online work and site-based, small group instruction, led by a trained TfT Facilitator. The TfT professional development model is based on the National Staff Development Council’s Standards for Staff Development and was designed to build teacher competence and confidence with Internet technology. It is based on the beliefs that teachers need:
    • ongoing training that goes beyond basic software instruction to connect curriculum to Internet resources
    • ongoing building-level emotional and technical mentorship
    • interaction with peers (grade level/subject area) to share ideas, problem-solve, and build commitment to further use of the technology and content
    • opportunity to work at own skill level, at own pace , and connect the learning to their unique classroom situation
    TfT's friendly user interface was designed by educators to meet the unique needs of educators. TfT exposes teachers to good online resources and describes effective online activities through several modules built around constructivist learning.

Find out about testing in the Assessment Program and Benchmark Requirements: 2002-03 Read the newest BPS Promotion Policy On June 19, 1996, the Boston School Committee approved a major policy document, the Citywide Learning Standards and Curriculum Frameworks. This is a very important document, in that it sets new, high expectations in four major subjects for every one of the 63,000 students in the Boston Public Schools, and for every one of their teachers. It is part of the Boston Public Schools' Education Reform Plan, which also includes:
    • reorganization of the system into smaller clusters led by principals. All principals report directly to the Superintendent.
    • a Comprehensive School Planning process to help schools direct all their resources toward meeting focused goals.
    • a unified funding strategy that pools the funding from business, community and university partners and allocates it to schools to support improvement in teaching and learning.
    This Introduction summarizes the goals of the Learning Standards and plans to carry them out, explains who wrote them and why, defines key words, and begins to answer some important questions. Finally, it gives examples of the standards for Grades 5, 8 and 12.

    A Critical Thinking Approach to Teaching and Learning. All subjects have a logic to them. Each is a system of meanings that enables us to reason effectively. Yet, most students try to learn not by reason, but by rote memorization. They blindly memorize someone else’s answers. Even when they do well on tests, it isn’t because they truly understand. True understanding requires disciplined reasoning. The How to Teach Series offers a penetrating, in-depth look at ways to cultivate intellectually powerful minds. This series of nine one-hour videos, featuring Dr. Richard Paul, focuses on how to break out of the didactic mode, taking viewers on a journey into a new paradigm for instruction that explicitly fosters reasoned learning; learning that accesses the inner logic of all substantive inquiry. Whatever your subject, the How to Teach Series is an essential guide to help you put reason, accountability, and power back into teaching and learning.

    Teacher preparation and professional development are important to increase student performance. Internet and other telecommunications-based professional development can provide research-based professional development on an ongoing basis to teachers in a variety of locations to help improve teaching and learning. For example, studies of educational technology effectiveness report that teacher expertise in using technology can substantially increase the learning gains associated with using the technology. While 80 percent of public school teachers reported in 1999 that they had access to training in use of the Internet, evaluations report that much of the current professional development is too short and not well integrated with ongoing instruction. The Ready-To-Teach program provides grants to a nonprofit telecommunications organization or a partnership of such organizations to carry out national telecommunications-based programming to improve teaching in core curriculum areas. In addition, Digital Educational Programming Grants under this subpart support the development of educational programming that includes student assessment tools to provide feedback on student academic achievement.

    By Mary Ann Cohen and Steven Leonard Assessments often furnish results too late to be of use to teachers. However, the formative assessments used in Boston public schools offer educators information that they can use to improve teaching. Every educator knows the drill: Teachers go to their school mailboxes, and jammed in the cubby with notices about report cards and assemblies and after-school workshops is the printout of last year’s students’ standardized test scores. They look them over with more than a little anxiety, feel uneasy about some students’ performance—Gee, that’s too bad Jerome got such low scores in math—but shrug their shoulders: Those students are now in another class or another school. The data is interesting but there’s not much they can do. In faculty meetings, educators compare the test scores with those from previous years and take pride in the fact that the median scores for the school have inched up. Some wonder whether the increase is because all students scored higher or only some, but they can’t find that out, at least not easily. The meeting ends and everyone goes back to their classrooms and offices—to the real work they have to do.

    This collection of NWREL resources focuses on Assessment . Clear educational targets and exacting standards often elude students in America's classrooms. Learning goals are fuzzy. State and district standards are buried in policy manuals. Assessment methods don't match teaching practices. Progressive schools teach students to solve problems, work in teams, think creatively, and be innovative. But many of those same schools then line students up in rows, hand them standardized test booklets, give them No. 2 pencils, and tell them to fill in the bubbles.
    American schoolchildren take 100 million standardized tests a year. If the average test has 100 multiple-choice questions, students fill in 10 billion bubbles annually. But those bubbles are beginning to burst as educators and policymakers acknowledge that too often, schools fail to test what they teach. Or, conversely, schools tailor curriculum to fit multiple-choice tests that measure memorization and fact-retention instead of critical thinking and other complex skills we want kids to acquire.
