Educational Outcomes and Indicators for Grade 4.
Ysseldyke, James E.; And Others
This document presents a model of educational outcomes for learners in grade 4 and the indicators of these outcomes for all students. This includes students identified as having disabilities or developmental delays. The document begins with a presentation of the conceptual model, with Educational Resources (Inputs and Contexts) influencing Learning Opportunity and Process. These, in turn, influence the Outcome Domains, which have a return influence on both the Educational Resources and the Learning Opportunity and Process. The Outcome Domains include Presence and Participation, Family Involvement/Accommodation and Adaptation, Physical Health, Responsibility and Independence, Contribution and Citizenship, Academic and Functional Literacy, Personal and Social Adjustment, and Satisfaction. The conceptual model is extended by identifying outcomes within each outcome domain, with "outcomes" being defined as the results of learning experiences or interactions between children and the educational process. Indicators, which are numbers or other symbolic representations that can be used to determine whether desired outcomes are achieved, are then presented. Finally, examples of possible sources of data for the seven indicators within the Physical Health domain are provided. (JDD)
