Process and Outcomes
Fall 2007 - Summer 2008
Cohort I Wisconsin campus STAR teams (Student Teacher Assessment teams)
were identified. Participating campuses include: Alverno College,
Marian College, UW-Madison, UW-Milwaukee, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Parkside, and
Cohort I STAR teams will define tasks and processes under guidance of
a consultant. Tasks will include reviewing existing student teaching assessments,
identifying core math and science content to be assessed, and synthesizing
common knowledge and skill core documents from campus documents.
Following this process, recommendations for the core knowledge and skills
assessment design will be made.
Cohort II STAR, and potentially, some STAR III teams will be identified.
Fall 2008 - Summer 2009
STAR teams will draft assessments.
STAR teams will provide input into common core document and assessments.
Cohort III STAR teams will be identified.
Fall 2009 - Summer 2010
STAR I, II, and III teams will implement PROTOTYPE assessments and FIELD
PILOT Training Protocol will be developed
STAR teams will analyze the data collected and share results.
STAR I, II, and III teams will collaborate to make recommendations for
the final revisions to the assessment tool(s), training protocol, and
data use processes.
Fall 2010-Spring 2011
Assessment tool(s), training protocols, and data use processes full year
PILOT by STAR campuses.
