Read the case study below and answer the corresponding questions as if you were the school

Your school district is a conservative community whose residents value academic achievement
and strong moral guidelines for their children. Parents are generally not opposed to change if
they are convinced that it would improve student success, but they certainly would not support
unproven alterations to a school curriculum they felt was working.

As principal, you decided to introduce the concept of performance-based assessments. You
feel confident about gaining approval and discussing your plans with the superintendent before
beginning any discussions with parents or staff. All teachers seem to be on board as the new
assessments become aligned with the curriculum and state tests. However, there is one 5th
grade teacher (very traditional) in your school that is opposed to this change and becomes very
vocal about her opposition. Word has now spread throughout the close knit community. The
Parent Advisory Council, that acts as a watchdog over the District, have begun publicly
questioning performance based assessments. Contemplate what you would do in this role as
principal and respond to the following questions/directives.

Part I- Developing and Articulating your Vision for Teaching and Learning

  1. Discuss how performance-based assessments fit into your overall vision for your
    school (ELCC 1.1).
    A. Your vision should be grounded in relevant knowledge and theories. In your
    discussion be considerate of how this vision promotes the success of all
  2. Discuss how you might communicate or articulate this vision of the inclusion of
    performance-based assessments to the superintendent, teachers/staff and
    parents (ELCC 1.2). A. Consider what strategies you would use to articulate your vision
    (relevant research, student assessment results, student demographic
    data, community needs, etc.).
  3. Now that you have described performance-based assessment and how it fits into
    your larger vision, you must be convincing on how it will contribute to a positive
    school culture. How might this assessment strategy capitalize on the diversity of
    the school community to improve existing school programs and culture? (ELCC
  4. Describe how performance-based assessments will: (ELCC 2.2) / A. Improve instructional practices and curricular materials / B. Fully accommodate learners’ diverse needs / C. Be integrated or introduced with technology systems
  5. Using appropriate research strategies, describe how you would work with faculty
    to achieve the outcomes you have presented. (ELCC 2.3) / A. Be sure to describe how you will assist school personnel in understanding
    and applying best practices for student learning/ B. Be considerate of any human development and motivational theories in this
    learning process.

Part II- Design a Comprehensive Professional Growth Plan

6. Submit a professional growth plan that describes the incorporation of
performance-based assessments into the school’s curriculum. (ELCC 2.4)

a.Your plan should be based on reflective practice and research on student
learning consistent with the school vision and goals that show a commitment
to life-long learning.

b. Discuss what strategies you will employ (i.e. observations, collaborative
reflection, adult learning strategies, etc) to develop the comprehensive
professional growth plan with teachers and other school personnel.
