How And Where Do I Find Jeffco's Proficiency Scales?
A teacher might be asking themselves, “how and where do I find Jeffco’s Proficiency Scales?”. In this edition of The Pulse from Curriculum & Instruction we explore just that question. Currently (2/2020) we have proficiency scales released for selected units in 3rd through 8th grade ELA and Math content areas. To find the proficiency scales on the Team Jeffco Intranet simply go to the Jeffco Deeper Learning Model website. From there, scroll to the JDLM logo and click on the blue “assess” arrow. To find the proficiency scales in Bridge to curriculum simply search for proficiency scales in the resource or assessment libraries. As Jeffco’s Curriculum and Instruction department is in a continual process of releasing proficiency scales and preparing for the 2020 Colorado Academic Standards more will be released. Please bookmark The Pulse from Curriculum & Instruction Blog Site and check back for more to come.
In addition to finding the location of the published scales, we also wanted to share our FAQ document. This document addresses the Frequently Asked Questions around High Expectations (please use your jeffcoschools.us login to access). These are the most frequently asked questions from Jeffco stakeholders. They are organized by topic and may be updated over time as more information becomes available. Information around the scope and timeline of the revisions to curriculum, including proficiency scales, is included.
