          Bullet Learning About MiLearn with MDE
The Michigan Linked Educational Assessment Reporting Network (MiLearn) is a legislatively funded project that delivers state assessment data electronically to students, parents, and educators in a more direct manner. This project uses the district’s Student Information System (SIS) to provide authenticated users access to state assessment reports. District administrative staff may configure their system security to locally govern which data is provided to their users. Additionally, the reports are updated daily to accommodate student enrollment changes. What are the advantages to MiLearn? • Immediate and direct access to assessment reports when they are released • Secure access to assessment data through SIS for students, parents, and educators anytime • Educator view of students reflects the current roster including student transfers • Enhances conversations between parents and educators regarding student learning and streamlines communications

          Bullet Student Learning Objectives (SLO) Workshop
District teaching teams will work to develop SLOs aligned with Michigan’s school improvement process to support teacher development and measure student growth that can be used by ALL teachers, not just those in tested grades and subjects. An SLO is a measurable, long-term, standard-based academic goal informed by available data that a teacher or teacher team sets at the beginning of the year for all students or for subgroups of students. Why use SLO’s?? SLOs reinforce evidence-based teaching practices. SLOs can be used with all teachers. SLOs are adaptable. SLOs encourage collaboration. SLOs acknowledge the value of educator knowledge and skill. SLOs connect teacher practice to student learning. What Does Early Research Indicate? Teachers reported increased focus on student achievement and data use, and increased use of evidence-based practices as a result of the SLO goal-setting process (Community Training and Assistance Center, 2013; What Works Clearinghouse, 2009). Teachers using SLOs valued the opportunity to analyze data and plan instruction as part of the SLO process and reported feeling “empowered” and taking a more active role in their evaluation after SLOs were implemented (Donaldson, 2012; TNTP, 2012).
