Alpha Plus Professional Development is data-driven and job embedded

Alpha Plus School Improvement uses benchmark assessments to monitor students from back-to-school week in the fall until state tests each spring. Our facilitators utilize the data in professional development (PD) on-site and online. Our Simulated Core Curriculum Tests mirror the state tests and are used to project A-F Report Card grades as well as students' OCCT Gap to next performance level.

  • Summative Test Log comparing previous year’s state-assessment data to Alpha Plus summative data (performance levels aligned to state cut scores)
