Here's what I've been working on during tech training...

  • I uploaded classroom documents to Google Docs so I could access them anywhere.
  • I created a Google Form for a reading survey to give to my students at the beginning of the year.
  • I created several Google Spreadsheets and shared them with the 8th grade team and administration. The spreadsheets break down PSSA and NWEA data for the 2009-2010 8th graders.
  • I updated my cheerleading wiki (www.cheerleading.sswiki.com) to keep tabs with my cheerleaders over the summer.
  • I explored Diigo and created an account to keep my bookmarks on the web and make them accessible anywhere.
  • I created an account for only2clicks that will store the webpages I have a username and password for.
  • I worked on creating a profile on the new district website that will welcome parents and students to the HS reading page.
That's about it.

Thanks for your help!!!!

Hi Everyone, I've been working on a document that lists our students' PSSA scores and other relevant data (8th grade only). I've included scores from 2009 and 2010 as well as the proficiency projection scores from our NWEA data for the fall and spring (no winter test data was available for this report) for reading and math and the 2010 scores for writing and science. If you follow the link to the document below you'll be able to see the score breakdowns. Hopefully this will be a starting point for looking at the data and how it all breaks down. If you save your own copy of the document you'll be able to sort the columns, delete the data you're not interested in seeing, and make the report more user friendly for you and your needs. To do so, click File in the upper left corner and scroll down the menu to "download as" and select Excel. If you're a google docs user and you want to have your spreadsheet there for collaboration, login to your google site and upload your saved spreadsheet. If you have any questions or any problems with the link, let me know. Happy Summer :) LB http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Ah8qCl8k9X_NdERLMUtnVXJaMndaUnR6MHNpdVZ6WlE&hl=en
