 II. ASSESS what was taught to determine mastery

A. Administer OAS-aligned summative benchmarks three times per year

    1. Fall Baseline: Evaluate performance data by standard and adjust pacing if major gaps in prior knowledge are noted.
      [We recommend “Classroom List” report that groups questions by objective in Alpha Plus Online.]
      TIP: As soon as possible, start class Summative Test Log in order to compare last state test scores with baseline, midyear and spring benchmarks for coordinating remediation throughout the year. PDF Template Example Excel Template Example.
    2. Winter / Midyear: Evaluate and adjust pacing for second semester; reteach any objectives for which fewer than 70% of students were proficient. [We recommend Standards at Risk Report w/small-group remediation list Alpha Plus Online.]
    3. Spring / End-of-Instruction: Evaluate data and plan final intervention for each student on weak or “bubble” objectives before state testing in April.

B. Administer common formative quizzes as objectives are taught during first three nine weeks [If your school is a new Alpha Plus member, download a copy of Alpha Plus Online      Quick Start Guide here]

    1. Select appropriate dates and mark formative tests on your Pacing Calendar
    2. Take steps to ensure students take formative quizzes seriously and that they evaluate each distractor for the best / most-plausible answer.
    3. Teach or reteach to mastery the content need for an OAS Objective; when you believe students have learned the content, assign the formative quiz.

C. Hold weekly Data Team Meetings (aka, PLCs) and/or complete DTM worksheets to monitor formative progress Download FREE PDF or Word template

    1. Use Remediation Report Form to coordinate intervention for each student  Download FREE Remediation Report Form PDF.
    2. What does my Objective Accountability Graph say? Example jpg.
    3. Hold weekly Data Team Meetings and/or complete DTM worksheets to monitor progress
    4. Evaluate each student’s previous state test scores and current benchmarks to determine if each is on track to meet Oklahoma’s Academic Achievement targets.  AcadAchvmtTARGETS_2019 PDF.

D. End of nine weeks or before Parent-Teacher conferences, provide parents their child’s Standard Based Report Card indicating student performance by OAS objective to date > Standard Based Report Card

We Use Data to Help Schools Make the Grade!

Teachers and administrators can quickly and easily identify students who need more help learning the Oklahoma Academic Standards.

Alpha Plus pinpoints the SPECIFIC OAS objectives or "gaps" students have from previous years, then helps school teams address each objective throughout the year.

That is why Alpha Plus schools have OUTPERFORMED the state average every year of the A-F Report Cards.
