SBAC

Data analyst-Rinat Freid works for OUSD and a Peralta parent

A data analyst gets files after the test is taken.  The goal is to give feedback as fast as possible to be helpful.

SBAC is a computer adaptive test.  It hones in on what a kid needs…it can scale up or down

Computer Adaptive tests yield more info at the top and bottom of the range of students

Depth of knowledge

Level 1  recall and reproduction

Level 2 skills and concepts

Level 3 short term strategic thinking

Level 4 extended thinking

 

Sbac has some demanding track pad/ drag and drop skills

Kids have to be proficient on computers

Chrome books are small and can malfunction

 

Resources…ousd homepage. Go to families.  There is a sample test.  Video to interpret your kids scores.   

 

How does sbac compare to sri?  No comparison.  

 

Within OUSD there were really stark differences in scoring depending on race, economics, etc

This test is geared to those who have more.  More experience more money.

 

Peralta did better than most schools similar to our demographics.

 

Teachers---this test is giving a lot more data.  Useable data.

 

The children at Peralta are critical thinkers.  Classrooms are rich.   Testimony to the peralta

curriculum.  

This(test) could all change depending on politics.  

How are we able to help all kids succeed.  How can this impact all kids.


 

Principals Report
