BRIGGS HS 2016-2017 OIP GOALS

SMART GOAL 1 – IMPROVE matriculation

By usage of Formative Instructional Practices (FIP) which include:

  • Ensure that learners understand the learning targets—this includes sharing and using models of strong and weak work.

  • Use the methods of assessment as teaching tools with learners.

  • Collect evidence that is an accurate reflection of learning—this starts with making sure that the assessment methods being used are a “good/strong match” for the learning targets being assessed.

  • Analyze evidence of learning—this could include analysis of data charts, student artifacts, anecdotal records, etc.

  • Provide learners effective feedback—success and/or intervention feedback.

  • Provide focused re-teaching or enrichment as needed— this includes providing opportunities for further practice before assessing again.

  • Teach learners to set specific, challenging goals for themselves, and plan for how the goals will be met.

  • Teach learners to track, reflect on, and share their learning with others
