Day Three for our PLC facilitators involved learning and work centered around setting our SMART Goal for our PLC/PLTs and the corresponding formative assessment plan. Our plan evolved to:
- Sharing the big ideas of our brainstormed goals. We used a post-up to share 2 word summaries of our goal, then an affinity map to find common ground.
- Beginning to write our goal SMART.
- Using our SMART Goals rubric to discuss and improve our SMART goal draft.
- Revising our essential learning and learn target rubrics as part of our formative assessment plan.
Our current SMART goal draft:
During the 2011-12 school year, every four weeks, we, the adult learners (all PLC participants), will demonstrate growth toward the target levels of proficiency (Level 3) in our PLC essential learnings:
- We focus on learning,
- We work in a culture of collaboration,
- We make decisions based on analysis of results;
using Measuring tools:
- Guskey-style rubrics used routinely for self and peer assessment with colleagues
- creating and using an archive system for artifacts (e.g., tables of specifications, common assessments, ELs, data sets of rubric, observation notes from instruction rounds, meeting agendas
- Need calendar for when PLC assessments – collected and processed
- Create digital archive system (tags to help searching/grouping?)
- Use a monthly PLC-F meeting to analyze the results that come in the forms of rubric scores and artifact archives…to plan a next course of action [ANALYZING “STUDENT” RESULTS to make decisions!]
- Need to develop an intervention and enrichment pyramid.
- Continue to revise and develop our rubrics.
Oh, and while using PollEverywhere, we also found the end of the Internet! Wow! Did not know we could do that!
