2018-2019 District Assessment Goals

Iowa Assessments

Reading: By Spring of 2019. The percentage of Iowa Valley students proficient in Reading (based on NSS) on the Iowa Assessments will increase by 3% from 79% to 82% proficient total average of 2-11 grade.

(We will be looking for all grade levels to increase from year to year)


Math: By Spring of 2019, the percentage of Iowa Valley third grade students proficient in Mathematics (based on NSS) on the Iowa Assessment will increase 2.7% from 83.3% to 85% proficient total.

(We will be looking for all other grade levels to maintain or increase, but keep in mind a new curriculum will be implemented at K-5 grades)


Science: By Spring 2019, the percentage of Iowa Valley students proficient in Science (based on NSS) on the Iowa Assessment will increase 2%  from 83.9% to 85.9% total average of grades 3rd-10th cohort (2017-2018: 2nd-9th graders)


Early Intervention

CBM-R:

By Spring of 2019, 3rd - 6th graders will increase 3.5% proficient from 81.5% (2nd-5th graders, 2017-2018) to 85% (3rd-6th graders, 2018-2019) on the FastBridge CBM-R Screener.


By Spring of 2019, K-1st grade will maintain 80% proficiency on the FastBridge EarlyReading (CBM) Screener.

(Explanation: 2017-2018 kindergartners reached 80% - so will maintain that 80% in first grade, while 2018-2019 kindergartners will also reach 80% by spring of 2019)


myIGDIs: By Spring of 2019, the overall percent proficient in preschool will increase 6% from 64% (Spring 2018) to 70% (Spring 2019) on the myIGDIs Early Reading Screener.

NWEA Assessment (MAP)

Reading: The average growth in reading per grade level from Fall 2018 to Spring 2019 will increase 8.1% from 51.9% to 60% on the MAP assessment.

(looking at the individual student growth  data vs. the overall proficient data.)


Math: The average growth in math per grade level from Fall 2018 to Spring 2019 will increase 6.7% from 58.3% to 65% on the MAP assessment.

(looking at the individual student growth data vs. the overall proficient data.)


Science: The average growth in science per grade level from Fall 2018 to Spring 2019 will increase 7.3% from 52.7% to 60% on the MAP assessment.

(looking at the individual student growth data vs. the overall proficient data.)


iReady Math Screener

By Spring of 2019, the percentage of students (K-6) that are on or above grade level will increase 2% from 79% (Spring 2017-2018) to 81% (Spring 2018-2019) in the iReady Math Screener.

By Spring of 2019, the progress towards targeted growth for the year [which is 100%] will be at 110% per grade level (2018-2019) on the iReady Math Screener.

By Spring of 2019, the average scale score gain (K-6) will increase from 28 average points in 2017-2018 to 30 average points in 2018-2019 on the iReady Math Screener.
