Eastfield Global Magnet School has been using EVAAS Projections for 4th and 5th graders to track NC Check In Scores BOY, MOY, and EOY as well as Common Assessment Data from SchoolNet for three school testing cycles. Each tracking spreadsheet has been valid and reliable in knowing the outcome with performance and growth. Classroom teachers that consistently Exceed Growth will also share how they use high expectations and item analysis to beat some incredible odds within those projections. As PLC teams, we use these tracking spreadsheets to create targeted intervention plans for students that we can leverage some high yield gains. We will transparently share the journey that has left us with no surprises be the outcome good, bad, or ugly.
