I am excited be presenting a session at EARCOS 2015, details below:

Susan Walter GIS Deputy Head Garden International School

Triangulating Attainment, Attitude and Aptitude: To Identify Student Learning Needs And Provide Targeted Interventions To Improve Primary/Elementary Pupil Outcomes.

Summary

Using data to improve pupil outcomes - EARCOS 2015 - Susan Walter - Garden International School

The 3 As – Attainment – Attitude – Aptitude

The collection of pupil attainment data in schools is nothing new, but attainment data is only part of the picture. At Garden International School, in Kuala Lumpur, we know that data only becomes effective if it stimulates questions, meaningful dialogue and discussion and actions that make a difference to student learning. During this session I will share how we have changed our approach to the kind of pupil data we collect, and the way we use it to better support learning for all our students across the Primary (Elementary) School.

Objectives for the session

  • Reflect on the importance of understanding data and how this can positively impact pupil outcomes
  • Identify what data to collect to have an impact in your schools
  • Gain a better understanding of the importance of triangulating data for maximum impact –  – The 3 As!
  • Think about what this means for us all as school leaders

Key headings:

What doesn’t work in education: the politics of distraction

What works best in eduction: the politics of collaborative expertise

The largest barrier to student learning: WITHIN-SCHOOL variability

Does every student n your school make one year’s progress in one year?

What are we doing at GIS?

A1 Attainment

A2 Aptitude – measuring students potential

A3 Attitude – measuring students attitude to learning

GIS next steps?

So why does this mean for us school leaders?

How will you use your data  to:

Know your impact?

Monitor your value add?

Identify:

Trends across cohorts or groups?
Vulnerable groups of students?

Plan strategic improvement? (Interventions etc.)

Personalise learning for the INDIVIDUAL student?
