What really stands out is that the number of students that exceeded standard on past assessments numbered only 15-25% (or 2-5 kids), yet in all three classrooms this ratio increased on this test from 36-53% above grade level! This leads me to believe that students in my flipped classroom who are the middle-of-the-roaders can improve their own understanding as well as those who have in the past just struggled to pass. See my last post where I observed more kids choosing to challenge themselves through selecting the more challenging independent worksheets than when I taught traditionally; this must be the result!
The graphs below show how my three sixth grade classes performed on the Unit 8 assessment. Grades are given on a scale of 1 to 4. 1 denotes significantly below standard; 2 denotes developing toward standard; 3 denotes meeting standard; 4 denotes exceeding standard.
|80% met or exceeded standard; 53% exceeded standard.|
|77% met or exceeded standard; 36% exceeded standard.|
|78% met or exceeded standard; 39% exceeded standard.|
So onward and upward! With routine reflection and tweaking, results on future unit assessments should be as good or better than what we have here!
