The Department of Public Instruction invites North Carolina Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Arts Education, Healthful Living and World Language educators to participate in the Analysis of Student Work (ASW) pilot during the spring 2014 semester. ASW is the proposed Standard 6 student growth measure for educators in the areas noted above. Feedback from the Spring 2014 pilot will inform statewide implementation in 2014-2015.
In the ASW Process, teachers collect multiple samples of student work from two points in time and then submit these samples using an online platform for blind review by content experts. Reviewers assess the samples for student growth in relation to objectives from the North Carolina Essential Standards or other appropriate standards.
Interested teachers in the designated areas for this pilot should:
- Obtain the approval of their principals to participate; and
- Complete the participation form: https://bit.ly/ASWapp2014
The deadline to submit participation forms is 5:00 p.m. on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2013.
Teachers may apply individually to participate in the pilot. Superintendents and principals may request that all eligible educators (AP, IB, Arts Ed, Healthful Living, and World Languages) in their districts or schools participate in the Spring 2014 pilot by contacting Jennifer DeNeal at 919-807-3288 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the deadline, superintendents will receive a list of all educators who have applied within their district and have the opportunity to provide feedback on the selection of teachers. Questions may be directed to Jennifer DeNeal using the above contact information. We look forward to partnering with you in this exciting endeavor!
