UPDATES: (continued) STUDENT PROGRESS: Common Assessments were administered the week of December 6-10. Common Assessments assist in gauging student knowledge of the current grading period and/or cumulative grade level instruction, as well as monitoring student progress. On January 4, 2022, teachers will be disaggregating their data with their team members to analyze student needs, student progress, considerations for spirals in pacing guides, small group instruction, tutoring, etc. In analyzing your data, it is imperative that teachers look at student progress from the first common assessment to the second common assessment, to include how they performed on the 2021 STAAR assessment. When students return the week of January 5, teachers shall meet with students to determine goal setting on student trackers for the 3rd -week grading period. This practice not only supports student learning, it also will benefit KISD on improved scores on STAAR. When a student does not progress, it negatively impacts accountability measures. STUDENT PROGRESS IS KEY, NO STUDENTS SHOULD GO BACKWARDS!!!! PURPOSEFULLY PLAN FOR STUDENT GROWTH!!! FAILURE RATES: As we begin the 3rd grading period, the C&I department will begin working with principals to analyze failure rates to date. The purpose for doing this is two-fold: (1) to determine the students who are needing credit recovery, tutoring, etc and (2) provides the C&I department with potential numbers for summer school. We will be continually monitoring this data throughout the second semester. SPOTLIGHT FEATURE COMING IN FEBRUARY: The C&I department will begin highlighting model classroom practices beginning in the February newsletter. If you would like to nominate yourself or a colleague, please contact Dr. Analisa Farah (for ES) and Dr. Susan Holt (for Secondary). We will also be looking for best practices during our class walks. SAVE THE DATE/CURRICULUM WRITING: SATURDAY, FEB 19, 2022 FROM 8:00-12:00 For the third grading period, it was requested that we offer this opportunity during the week so that those who were unable to attend on a Saturday could participate, however, our participation was extremely low. Therefore, for the fourth grading period, curriculum writing will return to Saturday.

Kingsville Independent School District Data Driven Instruction (DDI) Protocol Common Assessments/STAAR Benchmark Assessment ● Each grade level/department will work together to review Common Assessment/STAAR Benchmark data (for non-testing grade levels - current student data – universal screeners; reference PK-2 information on the back of this handout) ● Review Data: Over all Grade Level and by TEKS, Overall Teacher and by TEKS, Item Analysis (Student Individual Responses), Test, Student Data (organized lowest to highest score), (strengths? needs?) ● Complete Common Assessment/STAAR Benchmark Item Analysis Template: the purpose of this template is to plan for TEKS needing to be addressed through prerequisite learning and/or spiraling Common Assessment Item Analysis Example- KISD.docx Common Assessment Item Analysis Template KISD.docx ● Complete Common Assessment Student Analysis Template: the purpose of this template is to group students based on need and plan for their group instruction K-2nd Common Assessment Student Analysis Planning Reflection Resource - KISD.docx Grades 3-12 Common Assessment Student Analysis Planning Reflection Resource.docx ● Review TRS YAG and/or Pacing Guide for the 3rd nine weeks (All Content - use TEKS Resource System; exception - Gr. 2-5 Math use Sharon Wells Scope and Sequence): highlight “POWER TEKS/HF TEKS'' for the 3rd nine weeks - review High Frequency TEKS from https://lead4ward.com/resources/ (Data Tools Tab, High Frequency by Student Expectation); On YAG circle TEKS that need to be retaught from previous nine weeks, Underline TEKS that need to be spiraled from previous nine weeks (http://teksresourcesystem.net). Add this information to Pacing Guide as prerequisite knowledge and/or spiraling to be addressed during the 3rd nine week grading period.KISD-Nine Week Planner Activity TEMPLATE (1).docx ● Collectively determine 3rd nine weeks’ scope and sequence with needed changes using the KISD pacing guide. ● Create 3rd nine week’s lesson plans using 3rd nine weeks Pacing Guides or YAG with adjustments and TEKS Resource System. Create lesson plans, including objectives, vocabulary, materials/resources, instructional delivery. Review Lead4Ward: Investigating the STAAR Released Questions to include STAAR questions as a bell ringer, exit ticket, etc.
Kingsville Independent School District Data Driven Instruction (DDI) Protocol Common Assessments/STAAR Benchmark Assessment ● If a TEKS has a low percentage at the grade level/department, unpack the TEKS needed (this may indicate an instructional delivery issue rather than a student knowledge concern); using the TEKS Clarification Document will support in unpacking the TEKS as well as the following video examples: Unpacking TEKS Examples.docx. Unpacking the TEKS will provide for a deeper understanding of the full TEKS needed (what needs to be taught, at the appropriate rigor, including all content/context/vocabulary)...then plan for reteach \"One Key Practices in Action\" ● For PK - Grade 2: Analyze the following: PK: Analyze CIRCLE data, student work, assessments, etc to group students and plan for small group instruction, activities Kinder: Analyze TxKEA data, student work, assessments, etc to group students and plan for small group instruction, activities 1st grade: Analyze TPRI data, student work, assessments to group students and plan for small group instruction, activities and any Wonders skills checks, and unit assessments. Also, include STAR assessment as appropriate to plan for small group instruction. 2nd grade: Analyze TPRI data, student work, assessments, etc to group students and plan for small group instruction, activities and Wonders skills checks, and unit assessments, as well as Sharon Wells assessment. Also, include STAR assessment as appropriate to plan for small group instruction. PK-Grade 2 will use the K-2nd Common Assessment Student Analysis Planning Reflection Resource - KISD.docx to plan for small group instruction. FOR ALL STAAR TESTED GRADE LEVELS AND AS APPROPRIATE, ENSURE STUDENTS UPDATE THEIR STUDENT TRACKER AND GOALS Student Data Tracker 2021.2022.pdf
