Standard IV Analysis of Student Learning

Assessment #1 The American Symbols pretest was administered on March 17,2014. There were no students that were absent on that day. The American Symbols pretest was on American symbols. It was a fill in the blank and circle test. The purpose of the pretest was to allow me to recognize what concepts the students didnt understand yet. I used the scores to figure out who needs extra help. I focused on the questions that were missed the most when I planned my lessons.

Class Analysis The chart listed below show the students correct responses on the pretest. This pretest had a total of ten questions that were each worth one point. The students did not do well on this assessment because the information had not been taught before.

This chart shows that the girls did better on the pre-test than the boys did. Three Student Analyses There were three students that I chose to compare scores with each other. The first student is a male. He is a high level learner. He is not considered a GATE student. He scored ninety percent on his pre-test. The next student I compared scores with is a female student. She scored sixty percent on her pretest. The last student I compared scores with is a male. He is a struggling learner. He scored fifty percent on his pretest.

1 3 From this data, I found that the high learner (student 1) did not improve his score. He doesnt know what the Utah state flag looks like. I found that student three made big improvements from her pre-test to post-test score. She got the bonus question right. I found that student number seventeen did not improve his score. He still needs help labeling and listening to directions. Three Student Analyses I think that the high learner could have benefited from having me read the question slower. I was shocked when I saw student number threes results. I could not believe that she did so well on the test. Student number seventeen could have benefited from having a longer time to take the test. I forgot to give him more time. He could have benefited from taking the test the day before. Class Synthesis As I look back on the day this assessment took place, there would be some changes I would make to help my students succeed. I dont think that I will ever give a kindergarten a test on a Friday. It was a busy day and there were some students who did not listen to directions. I really liked having the bonus question on the test.
