The mini-trainings will cover a variety of topics including how to demonstrate program-level child progress using ability scores and mastery of school readiness skills with the Progress Report, and how to focus data aggregation and data analysis on program-defined subsets of school readiness skills and goals using the Milestone Reports.
The Path to School Readiness: Galileo Progress Reports with School Readiness Scale
Wednesday, April 18, and Thursday, April 19 at 10:00 a.m.-10:20 a.m.
Learn how the Galileo Pre-K Online Progress Reports with school readiness scale data provide actionable information to help pave the way in preparing children for kindergarten. See a live demonstration of Galileo Pre-K Online showing educators how they can aggregate and analyze child assessment data at multiple points during the year. The demonstration will offer examples of Child Progress Reports that provide data, including school readiness scale data, for decision-making. These reports show program-level child progress using ability scores and achievement levels, a baseline from which growth can be measured, patterns of progress that help to establish different goals for different groups of children, and progress data to create achievement goals for the next observation period.

The Path to School Readiness: Galileo Milestone Reports with Program-Defined Readiness Skills/Goals
Wednesday, April 18 and Thursday, April 19, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.-2:20 p.m.
Attend this session to learn how Head Start programs are focusing data aggregation and analysis on essential school readiness goals that support children as they transition into kindergarten. Galileo Pre-K Online Milestone Reports provide critical child assessment data on subsets of school readiness skills that are of importance to the individual learning needs of children. The Galileo Milestone Reports can be run at multiple points during the year and help educators plan, assess, and demonstrate achievement of their school readiness goals for children. Gain insights on how to monitor plans toward attaining successful outcomes for specific groups of children and how to apply filters, such as age, when running the Galileo Milestone Reports. ATI offers planning suggestions to help educators select readiness goals to include in program action plans. Find out more by attending this mini-training at exhibit #323.
