Instructional Management System. Developed for the Emergency School Aid Act of Duval County.
Duval County School Board, Jacksonville, FL.
Two of the forms used to record pupil progress in learning basic skills under the instructional management system of the Duval County (Florida) public schools are provided and explained in this document. The form for basic skills in mathematics establishes skill levels appropriate to each grade level from kindergarten through sixth grade in five areas: operations, numeration, measurement, problem-solving, and geometry. The form for communications skills establishes appropriate levels for the same grades in five additional areas: vocabulary, word analysis, comprehension, writing, and study skills. Both forms also cover general readiness skills at the kindergarten level. The achievement tests used to measure students' attainment of each skill are noted where appropriate. The document also discusses different levels at which teachers can use the forms effectively and provides suggestions for incorporating the system into the teaching process. The instructional management system is intended to facilitate the highest level of usage suggested for the forms, a level involving six steps: (1)pre-assessment of student skills, (2) grouping of students by instructional needs, (3) assignment of practice work to students, (4) re-assessment of student skills, (5) notation of skill attainment, and (6) advancement to the next skill level.
