At an Instructional Leader Professional Development meeting in February, Alpha Plus professionals met with Oklahoma educators from Barnsdall Elementary School. We thank the leaders who joined us for this workshop. Pictured are (from left to right) Alpha Plus CEO Jan Barrick, Principal Leasa Marshall, April Cole, and Ryan McCloud.
Alpha Plus Professional Development is data-driven and job-embedded. We help train Oklahoma educators on using Alpha Plus common formative and summative benchmark assessments to help identify students' learning gaps in alignment with the Oklahoma Academic Standards (OAS).
Professional Development Materials include:
According to Oklahoma Watch, at least 80% of sixth-grade students scored proficient in English at Balko, which ranks the Bison’s #1 statewide. Balko has used Alpha Plus OAS-aligned curriculum and interim assessments for reading and math since 2018.
Morrison’s first year with Alpha Plus was last year. For spring 2022, the Morrison Wildcats ranked 3rd in the state for 6th Grade ELA proficiency at 59%, which is more than double the state average of 26%.
Oklahoma Watch has a searchable database of last spring’s Oklahoma School Testing Program by grade level and subject area. When sorted by percentage of students proficient on the state test in English at Grade 8, Prue is ranked 3rd with 57 percent of students proficient! By the way, Prue’s proficiency in 8th grade ELA is more than double the state average of 25 percent.
Prue has been an Alpha Plus Partner School for both reading and math curriculum and assessments since 2013. Keep up the great work, Prue Rockets!
In Oklahoma history, many times it is surprising where a person’s dreams can take them. One little boy’s dreams led to a lifetime of public service.
From Chilocco to Yankee Stadium
As a little boy, Emmett Seeley always had big dreams. He played baseball every day after his chores were finished and his mother gave him permission. Late in life he became a popular coach of Little League teams in Murray County and, in between, he served his country. Emmett Seeley was a little boy who made his dream come true, then returned home to Oklahoma to fuel the dreams of other little boys.
We Use Data to Help Schools on the Way to an A!
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.
