09/22/2021, 09/23/2021 Algebra Progress Monitoring
Target Audience: Special and general education teachers of Pre-Algebra and Algebra (including 7th and 8th grade core content classes); high school special and general education teachers; co-teaching teams
Are you looking for tools to help you gauge where your students are and how they are progressing with respect to essential skills in the Algebra classroom? If so, then this training is for you! Project AAIMS (Algebra Assessment and Instruction: Meeting Standards) is a project funded by the US Department of Education with the purpose of developing algebra assessment tools that can be used for monitoring the progress of students with and without disabilities as they learn algebra. Outcomes of this training include:
- Develop understanding of progress monitoring
- Know how to administer, score, and use data from three (3) different measures
- Understand the relative merits and weaknesses of each of the measures
- Consider issues related to implementing algebra progress monitoring.
These measures are designed to be administered in person, not in a virtual setting.
To ensure fidelity, participants of this training may use the probes with their classes ONLY. They may NOT share the probes with others or train other teachers to use them. Participants will be asked to sign a User Agreement prior to the training.
Note: This is a hybrid training. It consists of 2 online sessions for a total of 6 PD hours. Both sessions are required in order to receive access to the materials. Participants will be asked to complete an assignment each night after the training. They will then return it to the trainer for feedback.
At the completion of the training, participants will be given a link to a Google Folder containing the measures.
The link to the Zoom sessions will be sent by 12:00 pm ET on September 22, 2021.
