1. What does the lead4ward package include?
This module includes:
Heat Maps with Student Learning Reports - Data Heat Maps are data visualizations that create color-coded “maps” of student performance at the student expectation (SE) level of the TEKS. The Data Heat Maps are designed to help campus leaders identify critical areas for teacher support and professional development. The functionality now includes the ability to compare local assessments as well as STAAR data.
- Math: 2-8, Algebra I
- Reading: 2-8, English I, II, III
- Writing: 4 and 7
- Science: 2-8, Biology, Physics, Chemistry
- Social Studies: 8, US History
- Coming for Fall 2015: Geometry and Algebra II
TEKS Scaffold- The lead4ward TEKS Scaffold Documents are great tools for vertically aligning student expectations (SEs) across grade levels. The new Scaffold Document Aware reports will allow districts to populate these with district or campus STAAR data.
Quintiles Reports: Quintiles use student data from any assessment and divide the data into 5 equal parts. This tool analyzes student performance gaps and the distribution of scores. Aware will now generate a quintile report, based on lead4ward's design, for local and state assessments. This report can be displayed at various levels including district and school.
Enhanced Curriculum Views: A powerful new tool for lead4ward, these new curriculum views replace the Heat Map by Unit. Designed to bring your scope and sequence, lesson planning data, state data, and local assessment data all together for you, this new view can empower you with information to evaluate your order of instruction, assessment alignments, and professional development planning.
