Teaching Local Educators to Use and Report State Assessment Results.
Roeber, Edward D.
Staff of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) have developed procedures for helping school district and building staffs use and report assessment results. There are procedures for using results at the district level, school building level and classroom level included in the appendix. This model is applicable to other state programs faced with the challenge of teaching local educators to use their results. These ideas are based on realistic estimates of resources available locally. The use and reporting model is predicated on several assumptions: (1) test results should be used to help students learn; (2) members of the public have a right to know about their schools; (3) most local educators are not well trained in testing, or the use of test results in instruction; (4) without training and motivation to use results, many local educators will ignore the results; (5) there are simple ways of using test results and these can be taught to local educators; and (6) the use of the results by the teachers and the principle and the reporting of the results at the district level to the school board and media and at the building level to the parents are very much interrelated.
