Data inquiry meetings


This week, our Year 1 to 7 teachers met with myself and our Head of Curriculum, Mrs Charmaine Xinis to discuss students’ 2013 numeracy and literacy data. Teachers also shared data that they have collected over the first 4 weeks of school, that provided a more up to date picture regarding how are students are tracking academically. These meetings are held every term to:

  • Track and monitor student performance, achievement and under achievement

  • Identify focus whole class, group learning needs

  • Identify individual student learning needs

  • Identify professional learning needs

As part of these meetings, we consider the following Data Sets:

  • Internal Data and Summaries: 2013 Probe/PM Benchmarking Data; PAT Maths; I Can Do Maths; Single Word Spelling Test

  • Systemic Data Sets and Analyses: 2013 NAPLAN; EAL/D Bandscales; A-E Data;

  • Class Data: current data from 2014 school year that may provide further information about individual student achievement e.g. Comprehension activity results; Writing tasks; English or Maths pre-tests; anecdotal information

We will meet with every Year 1-7 teacher in a fortnight to develop Class Improvement Plans, that will  inform resource allocation, Whole School program planning and implementation. As part of these meetings, we will be developing targets for students, looking at ways that students can be supported and extended within and outside of the classroom.

Our Prep teachers will be using the Early Start materials to start testing our Prep teachers to assess the entry point for our Prep students, and to identify areas for future teaching and monitoring.
