For example, before students can explain some of the key causes of the American Revolution, students need to identify and describe these causes.
Before students can construct a graph showing the relationship between two variables, students need a working understanding of key terms like dependent variable and independent variable. In other words, each question in a sequence is important, and eliminating steps from a sequence can inhibit student understanding.
This session focuses on research-based strategies for sequencing questions effectively. Sessions can be tailored to specific grade-levels and subject areas, or sessions can span multiple grade-levels and subject areas to facilitate vertical and cross-curricular alignment of these strategies.
This collaboration starts with teacher professionals and GCA co-creating standards-based text-dependent writing lessons that integrate reading, discussion, and writing. What follows is co-teaching of this lesson with students.
These sessions are highly customized. Teacher professionals build capacity in developing and facilitating text-dependent writing lessons. Students develop greater skill and confidence in text-dependent writing. GCA learns from both the teacher professionals and the students!
From this workshop, teachers can expect: Scoring text-dependent writing with consistency and accuracy, according to standards-based rubrics, can be a challenge.
Because accurate scoring is required to develop a valid understanding of student achievement, it is important to address these challenges.
GCA has deep expertise scoring text-dependent writing in multiple content areas, and offers practical, evidence-based professional learning on scoring text-dependent writing with accuracy and consistency.
This professional learning is particularly recommended for districts who observe local scoring of student responses to text-dependent writing questions found on district-level benchmark assessments.
District personnel who participate in this professional learning norm their scoring to promote consistency and accuracy, the effect of which is more valid results.
As we begin implementation of the new Georgia Milestones, this is a perfect time to also evaluate the status of district, school, and classroom assessments. This Assessment Audit offers tools and resources to help you determine whether your assessment system is in balance — that is, does it include policies and practices that will meet the assessment needs of all learners?
The audit is organized around three guiding questions: Where are we going? Where are we now? How do we improve student learning and achievement? Does the assessment align to the learning targets of the standard?
Does the assessment align to instruction? Does the assessment have an adequate balance of rigor? Is the assessment accessible to all students? Does the assessment align with the intended purpose?
The professional learning is organized around five essential questions: To what extent does the school have a balanced assessment plan? To what degree have stakeholders been trained for using formative and summative assessments to support decision making?
How are teachers using assessments of and for learning in their classrooms? How do collaborative teacher teams analyze data and student work? An assessment is only as good as the process by which it is created. GCA has vast experience in the process for designing, developing, administering, and scoring assessments.
The assessment development process is a comprehensive process which involves multiple steps to ensure the validity and reliability of the assessments. GCA works closely with our clients at every phase of the assessment process, from designing through scoring and reporting. While GCA offers an all-inclusive development package, we recognize our clients have varying needs.
GCA also provides specific services that best suit your assessment needs, including:timberdesignmag.com is the place to go to get the answers you need and to ask the questions you want.
