Reflection: Data Analysis Natural Selection in the Wild-Reteach/Extend - Section 4: Introduction


Once you've given a test, you have to decide what to do next.  Very rarely do all of my students show proficiency on the entire test.  Instead I usually have very uneven results.  There are generally a group of students that do poorly on several questions that will need special interventions.  There are often questions that many of my students do poorly on.  This indicates a need for more universal instruction.  There are also times when it is clear through student answers that the test question is flawed.  

This all means that a planned response is needed after tests.  What I like to do is calculate the percentage proficient on each question.  Because I organize the question into essential learning bands I can then choose an action on each essential learning.  If the students are over 70% proficient there is not a need for further universal instruction.  Instead I can use small groups and personal interventions.  The larger the amount of students that are non-proficient the more likely it is that the entire class will need universal instruction or that a test question needs to be adjusted.
