Transcript of Elementary Music SLO

WHY must we do this?
What's next?
Rhythm Module Instruction
What do the results have to do with the 20% of our evaluation?
What is SLO?
Use same assessment to post-test all your students.
Post Test
Use the next 3-4 weeks to teach and review the rhythm module of Quaver.

Special area teachers are working on a "Locally Determined Model" (LDM) for the "value added" 20% of their evaluation. This is because we do not have standardized test scores based on our subject area to determine student acheivement.
SLO's are measureable instructional goals for a a group of students.
Our SLO mastery goal for all music students in SDOC is 70% and is based on the rhythm module of the Quaver Music curriculum in each student's respective grade.
What is our SLO?
WE determine what our students are assessed on, how we assess them, and when we assess them.
Advantages of LDM
Do not teach to the test.

Do not post test of the same day of a module lesson. We want MASTERY, not MEMORIZATION.
Keep integrity in your classroom!
Elementary Music SLO

Every student you teach must be pre-tested between the dates of September 8th and October 5th. This should be done before you start the first lesson of that grade's lesson module.

*Have kindergarten assistants come help read their assessment to them.
Growth Goal after Pretest
Set a "growth goal" for each child after grading their pretest. This year, we will set growth goals to however much they must grow to get AT LEAST approximately 70%
K-2= 4 questions correct
3-5= 7 questions correct
Ex. 4th grader gets a 5 on pre-test= their growth goal is a 2.
You may customize growth goal for students who reiceve 7 or higher on pre-test
Data Collection
*Must be in PowerSchool by April!
Ultimately, we want 60% of our students, K-5 to reach their growth goal and have a "Y" in that far right column!
>60% = "Excellent"
45%-59%= "Proficient"
35%-44%= Improvement Needed
< 35%=Unsatisfactory
Looking to next year...
We can (and need to) begin thinking about next year's module we wish to assess our students on and begin those LP charts.

(I would suggest "melody")
The "BIG IDEA" in our learning progression charts does not have to be Quaver-based. Start thinking of WHY this skill is needed in the real-world.
Don't stop doing what you're doing!
80% of your evaluation is still based on classroom observation.
Prelim Conferences
Prelim conferences with your principal will be done by

September 30th.
