Ruth M. Buck School
Transcript of Ruth M. Buck School
As new staff transfer to Ruth M. Buck School, they will receive in-service and direct support to carry out the individual assessments and use the information from individual students to adjust teaching strategies to support students’ growth areas and areas of strength. Buck has implemented a Value-Added Assessment Framework that includes Reading Comprehension Assessment, Math Problem-Solving Assessment and Writing Assessment. Staff work to score collectively and to plan collaboratively, engaging in the Teacher Moderation Process.
Our aim is to focus on best practice as we support students’ learning. “[Our] focus must be on improving classroom instruction and adopting processes that will create a more precise, validated, data-driven expert activity that can respond to the learning needs of individual students” (Michael Fullan, 2008, p. 81, The Six Secrets of Change). The Student Achievement Pyramid illustrates the integral relationship between specific curricula, varied assessments and high impact instruction.
Ruth M. Buck School recognizes that solid programming is based on a defined curriculum that is regularly assessed with assessments driving instructional practice.
Buck’s Staff has worked in a focused manner over the last three years to develop an Assessment Framework that is based upon key literacy and Numeracy areas. We have moved to a Value-Added environment with most assessments being appropriate for all Kindergarten to Gr. 8 students.
