Below is an excerpt from Dr. Griffin in reference to our Nine weeks exams:
1. The 9 week exams may be seen by parents and students. 2. Teachers should review the 9-week exams with their students, item by item. They are designed to inform instruction. 3. After reviewing the exams, the teachers are to collect them, they should not leave the building. 4). EdInsight will have useful analytics to inform instruction for every student. 5) Teachers should hold students harmless for items on the exams that they did not get to on their instructional plan.
The above graphic illustrates how the 8th grade US History PLC, not only mirrored the desired outcome of question 2, but incorporated an opportunity for students to reflect, analyze tests and set goals for QTR 2. The PLC met to review the nine week exams and identified the top three missed questions by class, along with items that were not covered to ensure consistent grading practices across the PLC. They additionally identified topics that would need to be revisited. Students were asked to review their assessment. Students were provided a sticky note to record their score on the QTR 1 nine week exams as well as identify their goal for QTR 2 nine weeks test performance. The class data displays the target to be proficient as 70% (1.5), or above, on the test, which is synonymous to our Wildly Important Goal #1 and our Social Studies School Improvement Plan Goal.
Way to go US History PLC!!!!!
