Curriculum Tools Edwin Teaching & Learningaligned to the current Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks:Model curriculum mapsModel curriculum units and the ability for districts to:create curriculum mapsmodify and/or create new curriculum units create lesson plans

Assessment Tools Edwin Teaching & LearningAbility to build and deliver interim and formative assessmentsaccess to banks of assessment itemseasy-to-use reports on assessments being deliveredresults from classroom/school /district-wide common assessments Competency Tracking System for Vocational Education

Digital Resources Edwin Teaching & Learning easy access to quality online resources to support instruction. Resources to be tagged to standards and be in various formats: To incorporate into curriculum units and lessons To help differentiate instruction To incorporate into assessments

Edwin key take-aways: Voluntary - use components or wholeStandards Based - anchored in most current Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks / StandardsIntegrated Data moves automatically to all services with goal of educator-one-stop-shopping Dual Service Delivery Department and cloud-based services

6What is Edwin Analytics?What is the SAME: Education Data Warehouse (EDW) reports are still availableWhat is NEW and NOW available: Identify current students in grades 1-12 who may be at risk of missing key educational targets (Early Warning Indicator System (EWIS) reports)Identify how your former students did after they graduated from your school/district (Postsecondary Readiness and Success)

#Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education Early Warning Indicator System8Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education 8What are Early Warning Indicators?Methodological way of looking at students and their likelihood of meeting specific academic goals Traditionally implemented at the high school level to help predict which students are most likely to drop outTool for educators to better design and target student interventions in a timely way

#Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education MA EWIS BackgroundDepartment previously provided Early Warning Indicator Index (EWII) to predict the likelihood grade 9 students would graduateDepartment worked with American Institutes for Research (AIR) to develop the new risk models District feedback, e.g., focus groups and webinarsFirst rollout of EWIS in 2012-13 school year

#Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education Districts shared that the EWII data were helpful, but also requested indicator data at earlier grade levels and throughout high school

Conducted an extensive literature review of the research on indicators for early warning systemsIdentified and tested possible indicators for the risk models based on those recognized in the research and data that are collected and available from the Departments data systemTested the indicators and risk models on previous school years

11Key Concepts, continuedProvides risk level information for all students based on prior year dataThe risk levels are not based on a students relative likelihood for reaching an academic goal when compared with other studentsIndividual indicators in the risk model are not reflective of the level of risk - taken together, the indicators (data points) collectively form a risk level Only includes data from existing statewide collections (SIMS and SCS) and state assessments (MCAS and ACCESS)

#Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education 12EWIS is / is not=

The Massachusetts EWIS isThe Massachusetts EWIS is notA tool to better target interventions and supports at the individual, small group, and whole school levels. A life sentence or a reason to label students.A systematic way to flag students that need to be further examined to determine what additional support are necessary.A diagnostic tool that provides details on the exact reason(s) why a student is at risk for not meeting an expected academic goal. Related to measures that are included in the states school and district accountability system (PPI), but is not itself an accountability measure. An accountability measure.Based on data and risk models that the Department will reexamine each year to continually improve the system.A stagnant system that will remain exactly the same in future years. #Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education Districts shared that the EWII data were helpful, but also requested indicator data at earlier grade levels and throughout high school

13Edwin Analytics: EWIS ReportsThere are three EWIS reports in Edwin:EWIS Student List (EW601)EWIS District View (EW301)EWIS Graphical View (EW302)

All can be filtered numerous way (e.g., selecting specific schools, grade levels, student subgroups)

#Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education EWIS Student List (EW601)What are the current risk levels of my students?What are the prior risk levels of my current students?What data points (indicators) went into the calculation to determine the risk level?

#Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education

#Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education EWIS District View (EW301)Which grade levels or schools have the most students that need targeted support in order to be on track to meet the next academic goal?What is the breakdown of high, moderate, and low risk levels in a particular student subgroup (e.g. among students with disabilities)?Where does the district need to focus additional resources to get students back on track for meeting the next academic goal?

#Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education 18

Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education 18EWIS Graphical View (EW302)How does a selected group of students compare to the district and state?What are the previous risk levels of the currently enrolled students over the past 5 years?E.g., what are the previous risk levels of my current 4th grade male ELL students?What are the risk levels of a specific student group over the past 5 years? E.g., what are the risk levels of 4th grade male ELL students each year over the last 5 years?
