CRITERION C1 INDICATORS AND PROMPTS

Results of Student Observations and Examining Work

Indicator: The school’s observations of student working and the examining of student work provide information on the degree to which all students are involved in learning to assist them in achieving the academic standards and the expected schoolwide learning results. The school, particularly, has evaluated the degree of involvement in the learning of students with diverse backgrounds and abilities and modified approaches based on findings.

Prompt: To what extent did the observations of student working and the examining of student work provide information on the degree to which all students are involved in learning to assist them in achieving the academic standards and the expected schoolwide learning results? Particularly, comment on the degree of involvement in the learning of students with diverse backgrounds and abilities.

Findings

Suggested Areas to Analyze

Suggested areas to analyze in determining the degree to which the criterion is being met:



  • observation of students working and student work that illustrates the extent to which all students are involved in learning to assist them in achieving the academic standards and expected schoolwide learning results (examples of students working includes: oral presentations, individual and group work, discussions, investigations and experiments, performances; examples of student work include: essays, reports, project products, journals, portfolios, open-ended responses, tests)

  • the extent to which students know beforehand the standard/expected performance levels for each area of study

  • the extent to which differentiation of instruction is occurring and its impact on student learning

  • student interviews which illustrate the extent to which students recognize the academic standards and the expected schoolwide learning results and the expected level of performance

  • the degree of involvement in the learning of students with diverse backgrounds and abilities

  • other evidence identified by the school
