Achievement and SIP

Measures of Student Achievement and Success

Staff at Avalon use ongoing assessment to inform teaching and learning. Some of our assessments include:

• PM Benchmarks, GB+, CASI, CAT4 and EQAO results

• Daily teacher observation, student daily assignments, unit pre‐tests and quizzes

• Teacher feedback is key and a focus for our School Learning Plan

• Student self and peer evaluation (rubrics)

• Formal educational assessments conducted by our Learning Support Teacher

• Learning Bar data

• Other relevant data

School Learning Plan (SLP) and Initiatives

After reviewing EQAO, Learning Bar, report card and qualitative data, we identified the following areas of need for our 2016-2017 School Learning Plan:

• Number Sense

• Resiliency as it relates to mindset as our students tend to give up on problems when they are challenging for them

We will be drawing upon high yield strategies to plan and build a mathematical mindset community at Avalon. 

This year, our SLP is designed around a Theory of Action to move student achievement in these specific areas forward. Our Theory of Action states:

If the school team has opportunities to collaborate, plan and build a mathematical mindset community, then students will develop a growth mindset, thus improving their problem solving skills, and their ability to effectively communicate their thinking in all subject areas.

Our SLP and progress within the plan is shared with our School Council monthly. Updates are also shared in our school newsletters.
