2018 Inquiry Summary
End of Year Data
Having missed the middle 2 terms this year, my successes are straight from the data outcomes from their end of year testing. From 18 in mid year to just 10 students now reading below the age of 9 years old. And from 10 students in mid year who made shifts, to 18 who have now made shifts. YAY!!!
- 7 made accelerated shifts of more than 1 year reading age.
- 22 made shifts up in STAR test
Some things I'd like to work-on and make improvements on for 2019 is... To have more check points for students who need 1-1 help with a support staff. Expect more shifts and specific testing for vocab more often. One way to ensure this is done right is to make an effort to record feedback/feedforward for students. Another point would be to visit blogs for the CoL teachers who are covering ESOL principles and see what worked and didn't work for them.
