Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS)

 

MFL MarMac CSD uses this assessment in Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third Grades to identify students’ areas of strength and weakness in phonemic awareness, alphabetic principle, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.  This was the second year of using this assessment.  The following skills are assessed and reported:

 

Initial Sound Fluency:  The ability to give correct beginning sounds in words.

Letter Naming Fluency:  The ability to identify letters.

Phonemic Segmentation Fluency:  The ability to give the individual sounds that make up words.

Nonsense Word Fluency:  The ability to read and pronounce words or the sounds that are in the words.

Oral Reading Fluency:  A timed oral reading on three passages to measure the student’s rate of words per minute.

Math Probes Grades 1- 5

 

**All students in grade 1 through 5 are given the math assessment in the fall and the spring.  First through fourth grade students are allowed two minutes for the test.  Students in fifth grade test for four minutes.  The tests are scored on the basis of how many digits a students identifies correctly in a problem.  For example, if the answer is 121 and the student puts 101, the student would receive credit for having 2 digits correct.

6th Grade Algebra Aptitude Assessment

 

All sixth grade students are administered the Algebra Aptitude Test.  This assessment measures students’ ability to interpret mathematical information that is presented in graphs or text, to translate problems from English to algebraic symbols, to find formulas for numerical relationships, and to understand the important symbols of algebra.  The assessment data helps the math teachers and counselor to place students in future math courses.

11th   Grade Locally Created Science Assessment

 

The 11thgrade science assessment test was designed to achieve two purposes.  First, the students must be tested on their level of functioning; ability to understand scientific words and definitions, being able to communicate scientifically and be able to reason scientifically.  Second, the test was aligned to the Science Standards and Benchmarks as written by the MFL MarMac Community School District.

This assessment was written in three parts.  The first part is matching and will assess the student's ability to make connections between scientific vocabulary and definitions.  This is a very basic functioning level necessary for any kind of scientific literacy.  The second test required students to group vocabulary words and use them in a sentence.  In doing this, they demonstrate the ability to think and communicate ideas using scientific vocabulary.  The third test is a group of two scenarios in which the student must read and then process at still a higher level.  Students are expected to identify the question, hypothesize, design a test of the hypothesis, present the data in an organized way, analyze the data and draw a conclusion.  This requires higher order thinking.

The overall number of referrals decreased from the previous academic year.  Character Counts education in the classroom as well as preventative actions established by the McGregor Center staff contributed to the decrease in the number of referrals.

Progress with Early Intervention Goals

 

The district’s early intervention goal is to meet class size reduction standards set by the state.  In order to do this we hired additional teaching and associate staff, who focus on helping students in grades K-3 with the reading curriculum.

 

 

Schools in Need of Assistance

 

The MFL MarMac Community School District has zero buildings identified in need of improvement.

 

Zero percent of MFL MarMac Community School District buildings are in need of improvement

 

 

Standard Error of Measure (SEM) for the ITBS and ITED

 

As per the state’s agreement with the USDE, Iowa school districts are now required to submit information to their public regarding the Standard Error of Measure (SEM) for the ITBS and ITED.  The SEM is an estimate of possible error associated with an individual student’s test score.  The SEM can be described as a band of error.  A test score is an estimate of a student’s true test performance; however, when the SEM is applied, it indicates that a reasonable chance exists that the student’s true score may be slightly higher or slightly lower than what is reported.  For the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) and the Iowa Test of Educational Development (ITED), the SEM’s are presented in ranges, indicating where the student’s true score would likely fall (see table below).
