What the research says Value added assessment SATIS, SAES What would it take to optimise achievement for every student, at every year level and in every subject area? The research is unequivocal Engagement! It is important for schools to focus on academic, pastoral and

extracurricular offerings to encourage student engagement and optimise achievement. Pascarella & Terenzini. (2005). How college affects students: A third decade of research What is Student Engagement?

Student engagement is a "student's willingness, need, desire and compulsion to participate, and be successful in, the learning process promoting higher level thinking for enduring understanding. (Bomia, L., Beluzo, L., Demeester, D., Elander, K., Johnson, M., & Sheldon, B. (1997). "The impact of teaching strategies on intrinsic motivation." Champaign, IL: ERIC Clearinghouse on Elementary and Early Childhood Education. p. 294.) Levels of Student Engagement Evidence based decision making Measure student

achievement and engagement Analyse to optimise Measuring value added achievement Baseline data At the subject level The concept of Value Added Beyond Expectation +ve ValueAdded In line with Expectation 0 Value-Added Below

Expectation -ve Value-Added School wide What accounts for these differences in value added? Can we identify best practice and make it common practice? What the research says Survey data interpreted in conjunction with Value Added

Assessment data is a powerful tool for reflection to improve teaching and learning at the student, subject and school wide level. Student Attitude and Engagement survey results are correlated highly to student achievement gains. SATIS SAES Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (2012).
