To evaluate the effectiveness of the accomodations students will be receiving, teachers need to reflect on the data given to them by the student. The data could consist of assessments given by the teacher or school. In this particular scenario, data will be used from NWEA testing. The assessment pinpoint certain standards and display how a particular student performs on the standard. If said student has been working diligently to master the standard including the accommodations, the teacher should see growth, if not, then there will be no growth.

  • Identify current classroom accommodations for students with disabilities. 
  • Develop ideas for accommodations, including technology that may be effectively implemented now or in the future.
  • Develop a plan to implement accommodations, detailing a specific change that could be monitored for results.
  • Develop a plan for evaluating the effectiveness of accommodations after they have been implemented.

Conducting an after test questionnaire to give to students is also most useful in evaluating accommodations. In this questionnaire, students will be asked about if the accomodations they received were useful, if the accommodation had any difficulties while being utilized, and if said accommodation should be used again. Teachers and students are able to reflect on what “works” and what does not.

The ESE team will use take the same questionnaire given to the student by the teacher and utilize them in making 504/IEP plans. When it is time for their annual IEP/504 meeting, the student services coordinator will refer back to the questionnaire and any other material the teacher has gathered. The data must show that the student is able to grow an no longer need accomodations.

  • Create an evaluation plan that details the efficacy of the approach taken in implementing the accommodations.

Rubric Instructions: Self-Assessment of Competencies

The idea behind rubrics is to assist you in critically analyzing your work and ability to meet competencies that are aligned to criteria on the rubrics. With self-assessment and reflection of the criteria on the rubric prior to submission, you will have a solid idea of your competency and quality of work. Regular use of self-assessment as a way to reflect will improve your writing and target assignments toward your instructor’s expectations. 

You will use the same rubric that the instructor uses for each assignment. You will grade your own assignment using the rubric, as will your instructor. After submission, your instructor will compare the two rubrics. If they match, you will earn extra points. However, in the end, your instructor’s assessment will be the one that counts.

Process for Self-Assessment

1. Think critically about your work before filling out the rubric. The rubrics must match to earn extra points. So, be honest in your appraisal of your work.

2. Use this assignment template and rubric. Upload to the appropriate assignment area.

3. Assess your assignment according to the rubric. Include comments that share how your assignment meets the level you chose along with evidence from your assignment. Boldface words, phrases, or parts in your assignment that you feel support your level choice and comments.

4. Refer to the boldface when you type your comments in the comments column. This becomes evidence of how you have demonstrated in your work the competency related to the chosen level.

5. Your instructor will assess using the same rubric; if the rubrics match, you will earn extra points.
