Tip #17 SMART Response- Student Log-In vs. Anonymous: When using SMART Response software, you are hopefully attempting to collect data that will drive your instruction. In order to collect this precious data you will need to have all students log-in using their specific student ID's. This will not work in anonymous mode. New Jersey Student Learning Standards. New Jersey Student Learning Standards In 1996, the New Jersey State Board of Education adopted the state's first set of academic standards called the Core Curriculum Content Standards.

New Jersey Student Learning Standards

The standards described what students should know and be able to do upon completion of a thirteen-year public school education. Over the last twenty years, New Jersey's academic standards have laid the foundation for local district curricula that is used by teachers in their daily lesson plans. Revised every five years, the standards provide local school districts with clear and specific benchmarks for student achievement in nine content areas. Developed and reviewed by panels of teachers, administrators, parents, students, and representatives from higher education, business, and the community, the standards are influenced by national standards, research-based practice, and student needs.

Evaluating Technology Use in the Classroom. Evaluating the use of technology in a classroom environment is not something most administrators are trained to do.

Evaluating Technology Use in the Classroom

It is easy to walk into a classroom and see that every student is using a computer, but how do you really assess if and what type of learning is taking place? In the past, I have had administrators tell me “I walked into the teacher’s room and all the students were on laptops.” As though just the site of students working on laptops meant they were engaged in the learning process.

The SLOs are intended to provide clear targets to assist in the daily planning of lessons. Assessments will be designed to measure how well students have met the targets, and, more important, what students still need to master. These assessment data will allow teachers to effectively determine what interventions students need as they encounter increasingly complex text. AchieveNJResourcesGuide.

Evaluators can use these to share with teachers following informal and formal observations for the teacher to self rate and the evaluator to rate. The two parties then discuss in a reflective conversation the results of informal reflective rating.

Elements of teacher effectiveness.MOV. Effectiveness. Evaluating Teacher Effectiveness. “The Widget Effect,” a widely read 2009 report from The New Teacher Project, surveyed the teacher evaluation systems in 14 large American school districts and concluded that status quo systems provide little information on how performance differs from teacher to teacher. The memorable statistic from that report: 98 percent of teachers were evaluated as “satisfactory.” Based on such findings, many have characterized classroom observation as a hopelessly flawed approach to assessing teacher effectiveness. When Principals Rate Teachers. Elementary- and secondary-school teachers in the United States traditionally have been compensated according to salary schedules based solely on experience and education.

Concerned that this system makes it difficult to retain talented teachers and provides few incentives for them to work to raise student achievement while in the classroom, many policymakers have proposed merit-pay programs that link teachers’ salaries directly to their apparent impact on student achievement. Until recently, only a handful of isolated districts had attempted such programs. Educational Leadership:The Effective Educator:Evaluations That Help Teachers Learn. Crafting an Accurate System for Evaluating Teachers. Charlotte Danielson, creator of the teacher evaluation scripts used by more than half of New Jersey's school districts. Charlotte Danielson may not be a recognizable name to the general public, but the Princeton-based consultant is the architect of a framework for observing and evaluating teachers that has been the gold standard in schools across the country.

By one count, a third of New Jersey school districts use the Danielson method in their own evaluation systems, focusing on its criteria for effective teaching. Danielson divides those criteria into 22 components across four domains: preparation, classroom environment, instruction, and professional responsibility. As the Christie administration now moves to create a statewide teacher evaluation system, the Danielson framework is one of the programs being offered to 10 pilot districts. Of course, Gov.

Teaching the Core. New Jersey Collaborative Online Resource Exchange. Common Core State Standards For Math. NCSM - Welcome. The University of Arizona - Institute for Mathematics & Education. The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics.

These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards. From that point on the work focused on refining and revising the grade level standards. The early drafts of the progressions documents no longer correspond to the current state of the standards. It is important to produce up-to-date versions of the progressions documents. They can explain why standards are sequenced the way they are, point out cognitive difficulties and pedagogical solutions, and give more detail on particularly knotty areas of the mathematics.
