1/11/17 Applying SBL Philosophy


Three students in your class took a test that assessed 2 of your class's content standards.  Their scores are shown in the chart above.  Assume that a score of 20 for a specific standard is a score that demonstrates a high level of mastery of that specific standard.

Discuss how an SBL philosophy would impact the way you handled these results.

Leave a summary of your thoughts or your group's thoughts as a reply in the box below.

  • In this case, we need to break the test down by section/question and develop an individualized remediation plan for each student.

  • If 20 is the score for mastery ...

    I would take a different approach to SBL to SBA: Standards Based Accountability.

    Why did Student A not do well in Standard 1? We could assess in their binder/notebook... did they complete the classwork and homework assignments to practice the skills associated with Standard 1? Did they improve on the skills they missed when they were provided feedback from Standard 1?

    Same for Student B, but with respect to Standard 2.

    Student C. Again, look at their homework completion, their reflection and application of class activities providing feedback on their mastery. Did they study the skills that they were not achieving mastery? Do they need to improve their learning strategies by completing a learning style inventory?

  • Yep, peer tutoring.

  • Student 2 could help Student 1 & 3 w/ Standard 1.  Student 1 could help Student 2 & 3 w/ Standard 2.

  • Hannah S, Kara H, Elliott P, Jimmy W., Beth D, and Jenn S:

    Student 1 could peer tutor Student 2 on Standard #2.  

    Student 2 could peer tutor Student 1 on Standard #1

    Student 3 could benefit from working with both peer tutors above.

  • The way that you would handle each student depends directly on what the data shows.  The student all need to work on different standards.  

  • Submitted by Robyn, Sarah, Amy, and Justin

         You really have to approach each situation individually.  Student 1 needs to retest on Standard 1, Student 2 needs to retest on Standard 2, and Student 3 needs both areas.  You could even use Student 1 to tutor Student 2 on Standard 2, and use Student 2 to tutor Student 1 on Standard 1.  

  • Individualized instruction is going to be best here.  I would share the results with the students and then have them review different material.  Student #1 would be working on Standard #1 while Student #2 would be working on Standard #2.  Student#3 would need review on each of the standards or possibly just parts of those standards.  It would actually be good to break the Standards down(if they are big) a bit more if possible to see where the weaknesses are.
