ACCOUNTABILITY, ASSESSMENT, INSTRUCTION, AND SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT
A. National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Grade 12 Results
The National Assessment of Educational Progress, commonly known as “the Nation’s Report Card,” is mandated by federal law and is conducted at both the state and the national level. This assessment has been focusing on what America’s students know and are capable of doing in various subject areas since 1969. In a follow-up to the NAEP 2009 Grade 12 Pilot, state-level data was again collected for Grade 12 schools participating in the NAEP 2013 reading and mathematics assessments. New Hampshire’s 12th graders, as a whole, continue to perform near the top in reading and mathematics compared to students across the nation, according to the 2013 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) results released May 7, 2014. For more information go to www.education.nh.gov/instruction/assessment/naep.

A. Educator Lookup
We have updated the educator lookup functionality that will be relocated to the NH Certification web page (www.education.nh.gov/certification) in mid-May. The improved application which allows users, including the public to search for an educator using a combination of name and/or district and/or endorsement, now also includes educators who are not assigned to a school. All educators holding an active certification license will be shown along with limited details on their certificates and endorsements. For those educators who are employed in a public school system, employment information and teaching assignments is also provided. We anticipate the new application will improve access for districts and the public.

The American Association of School Administrators (AASA) is collaborating with TenMarks, an Amazon company, to reverse the summer learning loss in math. AASA announced that TenMarks is making available the TenMarks Summer Math Program, at no cost, to students across the country. Research shows students lose two to three months of grade level math equivalency over the summer, which impacts their readiness for the next school year. While academic assistance is available during the summer, the participation in these programs is limited. The TenMarks Summer Math Program is personalized to guide students through a curriculum that meets their individual needs. Starting with a diagnostic assessment at their grade and skill level, the program automatically creates an individualized summer curriculum, designed to review concepts that a student must refresh from the year past, and introduces them to concepts for the year ahead. The program adapts with targeted interventions when it rec ognizes a need. TenMarks will also offer end of summer reports for families and districts to help inform curriculum and instruction for the new school year. AASA encourages school districts across the country to learn more about the free, online summer math program at summermath.tenmarks.com, where they can immediately access materials to inform families about the free program.
