In under a decade, C.E. Rose Elementary School in the Tucson Unified School District in Tucson, Arizona, has gone from approximately 20 to 30 percent of its students passing the state assessment, to more than 70 percent passing in both reading and math. The school’s educators believe that these impressive gains occurred thanks to active engagement and motivation of students, planning and collaboration, and utilizing Galileo K-12 Online data to induce interventions. “With [Galileo] ... you look at the data and it gives you the motivation you need to keep working toward your ultimate goal ... And I think that’s been one of the most powerful things,” said Rose’s principal, Stephen Trejo. Through ongoing evaluation of its success, the school’s staff has plans to continue down this path of achievement.
*In 2010 the state of Arizona introduced a new scale for statewide test scores for mathematics as well as a new standard for proficiency that was not aligned to the previous standard. Therefore, student performance on the statewide assessment in mathematics in 2010 and 2011 is not compared to student performance in years prior to 2010.
