  In-Process Measures – Summative & Formative Assessments
                          Pre Planning: Identification of Need
                          1.   Develop/Review Student Learning Expectations
                          2.   Examine alignment of learning expectations with assessments
                          3.   Review assessment data                                    Identify areas of
                          4.   Identify areas of need based on assessment       What do we want students to know?
                                                                                     strength and weakness?
                          1. Describe the current process for addressing the identified area of need (flow chart)
                          2. Review data to determine baseline performance in the specific area identified
                                 (Run Chart/Pareto Diagram)
                          3. Identify potential root causes contributing to the identified area of need
                                  (Cause & Effect Diagram, 5 Why’s, Relations Diagram)             HOW do we know
                                                                                                What do they know?
                          4. Study research-based best practice/improvement theory addressing areas of need
                                                                                               if they have learned it?

                               1. Examine student assessment results (compare to baseline)
                               2. Assess the impact of research-based best practice/improvement theory on student

PLC Crucial Questions
What do we want each student
to learn, know, or be able to do?
What evidence do we have of the
How will we respond when some
students don’t learn?
How will we respond to those who
have already learned?
Student Crucial Questions

   What do I need to know?
   Where am I now?
   How do I get there?
   What happens if I fail?
