Development of Simple Ways for Using State Assessment Results.
Roeber, Edward D.
The Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) staff developed strategies to train teachers and principals to use state assessment results for improving academic achievement in their schools. Two local uses of the state assessment results are (1) using the results of grades 4, 7, and 10 with the students tested, and (2) using the results to review curricula in the previous grade levels. Samples of materials developed for each type of use are appended, and include instructional support materials for mathematics, pamphlets for preparing school staffs to provide individual student results to provide individual student results to parents, plans for preparing for a utilization of MEAP test results workshop, and a model for utilization of MEAP test results. Presentation of the utilization model is planned for three sessions: Session I examines the test results and identifies present needs; Session II deals with curriculum and instructional planning; and Session III is devoted to decision making and setting goals. Because these methods were developed by observation of what does work in schools and because the techniques were geared to the resource restraints of local schools, they can be applied in a variety of settings.
