Wheelers Hill Secondary College (8474)

 Goal 1                                                To improve the learning growth of every student across all domains and year levels, and to create a stimulating learning environment where students are actively engaged in their learning, are aspirational,
                                                       and are motivated to acheive their personal best

 12 month target 1.1                                   Data Plan is effectively implemented

                                                       Better tracking of student progress and growth using Data (eg the use of Trial of a 'Data Wall' at Y7 to measure learning progress; use of Analytics and other Data Groups from Compass; compare Teacher
                                                       Judgements with Other Data Sets eg NAPLAN results)

                                                       Student Feedback (using PIVOT) shows Teacher Practice and Provision of Feedback by Teachers to Students has improved - review how student feedback should be collected

                                                       Data Plan has helped to improve NAPLAN and VCE Data - lower 'low growth' and higher 'high growth' re NAPLAN; improvements to our 2017 VCE Study Score from 2017; 10% of Y12 students with ATAR
                                                       of 90 and / or above; 6% of study scores above 40

                                                       Data Plan also helps to improve other Data Sets from 2017 levels (eg Student Att to Sch; Teacher Judgements, etc) as Plan provides for a more strategic approach

                                                       Use of DITs to make improvements in one or two key areas through 2018 - Data used to gauge improvement

 FISO Initiative                                       Building practice excellence

 Key Improvement Strategy 1                            Documented Data Plan, inc use of DITs, to gain and measure improvement linked to Priority Areas. DITs establish one or two key areas for improvmt and reference data at start and end of yr to measure
                                                       gains.

                                                       DIT benchmarks established early in 2018 to help measure improvement
                                                       Links made between DITs and P&D
                                                       Review membership of DIT groups (inc inviting ES staff to participate)
                                                       Presentation and discussion of VCE Data to Y12 Teachers at the start of 2018
                                                       Trial strategies in the use of Data to measure student growth

 Evidence of impact                                    Further improvements in how Data is used throughout the College by staff
                                                       Improvements made in the work of DITs as measured by comparative data from the start to the end of the year
                                                       Clear 'line of sight' with respect to P&D Plans and the work of DITs
                                                       Improved student results (eg VCE; NAPLAN eg Y9)
                                                       Staff report effective and efficient use of Data based on Data Plan used
                                                       Further improvements in Teacher Practice as evidenced by Student Feedback (eg Pivot)
                                                       Trials used to measure student growth (eg Data Wall; comparing Teacher Judgements and NAPLAN results

 FISO Initiative                                       Building practice excellence

 Key Improvement Strategy 2                            Trial strategies to better measure student growth (research the use of a 'Data Wall' at Y7 and/or measures to effectively monitor and measure student progress; better use of Compass; etc) Use Data Sets
                                                       (NAPLAN) against teacher judgements to show and highlight comparisons.

 Actions                                               Data Improvement Leader works with the Midd Sch (ie 2018 Y7 cohort) to investigate methods and strategies to best monitor and track student growth; greater use of Compass as a tool to track student
                                                       progress eg Analytics and other data sets that are able to be extracted from Compass to measure student growth
                                                       Use of Compass to track student improvement; any progress to be used to assist students and staff

 Evidence of impact                                    Improvements in the way we track student improvement. A visual representation (eg Data Wall) can be helpful for staff to track improvement.
                                                       Improved Data Sets
                                                       DITs report improvements in the one or two areas they have nominated in 2018
                                                       Students think that Teacher Feedback and Teacher Practice has improved (better PIVOT results)

Key Improvement Strategy 3                            Continued use of PIVOT, Student Attitude To School Survey Data - analysis of student feedback to drive improvement in teacher practice; PIVOT : Teacher Feedback to students continues to be a focus.
                                                       SATs : Further gains to made in Stimulating Learning and Differentiation Learning for example.

 Actions                                               Continued use of PIVOT (PIVOT : Teacher Feedback to Students continues to be a focus), Student Attitude To School Surveys (or SATs) show further gains made in Stimulating Learning and Differentiation

                                                       Review application of PIVOT with students - how should it be applied and when

                                                       Work with staff to make gains through Staff Forums, CPP, PD and PL re above

                                                       Reinforce the importance of our T&L Model to engage learners and provide useful feedback to students (inc audit of Curric Docs and CATS to inc 21C skill development); use T&L Model more in CPP

                                                       Inc reference to above in P&D Plans, etc

 Evidence of impact                                    Compare 2017 PIVOT and SATs results with those captured in 2018 to measure improvement

                                                       Teachers and students report stronger use of T&L Model

                                                       CPP is more strongly connected to T&L Model

                                                       Curric Docs and CATs inc and use activities to allow for the development of 21C skills; CATs for example using at least one type of ICT software and this is seen in student work samples

                                                       Stronger student data in key areas eg Teacher Feedback, Teacher Practice
