Leadership Project Part 4: Introduction The action site team of St.
John Eudes is working collaboratively to develop K-8 reading assessments aligned with Common Core Standards. Teachers and the administration at St.
John Eudes school will participate in professional development, work in grade level groups to create authentic grade level reading assessment.
Each grade level, K-8, is responsible for creating an informational text reading assessments as well as a literary text reading assessment both aligned with CCSS. Assessments will be completed by June so teacher may begin classroom implementation in the school year. In addition, teachers and administration have learned about assessment, types of assessments pre-assessment, formative assessment, summative assessment, traditional assessment and authentic assessment and will work in both faculty and grade level meetings to create grade level reading assessment.
Teachers will have the previously unpacked standards to refer to in order to help them identify what skills and concepts assessments should address. By working as a team to create assessments teachers will be able to maintain consistency across grade levels and ensure that the hierarchical structure of Common Core is being maintained.
Collaborative work will result in an authentic grade level assessment in literature as well as informational text for each grade K-8 and authentic assessments in foundational skills, grades K The teacher-created authentic assessments maintain a collective view of assessment amongst teachers.
Eventually grade level teams were arranged and met together on Mondays during grade level time as well on Friday during faculty meeting time.
Before these sessions began I reviewed assessments with the faculty see professional development page. In addition, I provided the faculty with a sample grade level reading assessment aligned with Common Core State Standards.
During collaborative sessions I worked with each grade level group to check for understanding, monitor progress and ask and answer any questions. Because I was dedicated to the project as well at the middle school team it was often difficult to find time to meet the needs of the faculty as well as my team members.
To do this I began to delegate responsibilities to my middle school team members to ensure their active participation but also allow myself time to be in the primary and intermediate grade level meetings.
In addition, the assistant principal, Mrs. Gunter, spent time in both primary and intermediate grade level meetings to aid and support when I was unavailable.
This helped streamline the process and ensure consistency among assessments. This provided all faculty members with the opportunity to observe and reflect on one another's assessments as well as their own. In addition it provided teachers professional feedback concerning their work. Assessments, answer keys and rubrics are to be completed by the end of the school year, June 11,for implementation in the fall of the school year.
All assessments, answer keys and rubrics will be uploaded on googledocs for future reference and modifications. The topic is related to educational outcomes providing teachers with the information, understanding and knowledge-base to effectively implement ELA CCS in their classrooms.
Teachers will gain knowledge and participate in professional development opportunities concerning Common Core State Standards. Throughout professional development opportunities and sessions teachers were engaged, actively participated, asked questions and wanted more information not only on Common Core, but also regarding instructional strategies that could be implemented in the classroom.
This active engagement was welcome and I encouraged teachers to speak freely and participate without judgment or ridicule. The faculty and staff, over the course of the project, welcomed the change in topic and presenter.Math Common Core Sampler Test The grade 6 sampler covers the most common questions that we see on the Common Core tests and test samples.
