How are you using MAP Growth data along with state assessment data in conversations with parents?
Kristina Macbury Cyvi Levin Yvonne Sorenson
The first thing that comes to mind when I see this question is first page of the Student Profile report. For each subject tested the left side of the report will show the student percentile for MAP Growth (where the student ranks among their peers-grade level, subject and time of year tested- from the 2015 Normative Data). Using the linking study for their state it will show how the student is projected to perform on the state assessment. This information can be used to engage the parent and student in a conversation about how they are performing in relationship to their long term educational goals.
More information about the 2015 Normative Data study and the state linking studies is available on www.nwea.org.
This is the perfect time of the year for data conversations and families.... Spring conferences!
During student lead conferences, students use their MAP data as one example demonstrating their growth thus far this school year. Using the student profile report, goal setting worksheet with action plan and data from the our school's personalized learning plan (PLP) students articulate where they started with their Fall MAP scores, the progress in Winter MAP, and their goal for their Spring MAP and their State Assessment based on their Projected Proficiency. Teachers continue the conversation with families by identifying how they can best support students strengths and what content students are likely to be focusing on while aligning to the student action plan.
