|Rationale for Student Growth Objective |

|(Please include content standards covered and explanation of assessment method.) |

|Standard: 5.1 Science Practices: Science is both a body of knowledge and an evidence-based, model-building enterprise that continually |

|extends, refines, and revises knowledge. The four Science Practices strands encompass the knowledge and reasoning skills that students must|

|acquire to be proficient in science. |

|Strand A. Understand Scientific Explanations |

|Strand B. Generate Scientific Evidence Through Active Investigations |

|Strand C. Reflect on Scientific Knowledge |

|Strand D. Participate Productively in Science |

| |

|5.2 Physical Science: Physical science principles, including fundamental ideas about matter, energy, and motion, are powerful conceptual |

|tools for making sense of phenomena in physical, living, and Earth systems science. |

|Strand A. Properties of Matter |

|Strand B. Changes in Matter |

|Strand E. Forces and Motion |

| |

|5.3 Life Science: All students will understand that life science principles are powerful conceptual tools for making sense of the |

|complexity, diversity, and interconnectedness of life on Earth. Order in natural systems arises in accordance with rules that govern the |

|physical world, and the order of natural systems can be modeled and predicted through the use of mathematics. |

|Strand A. Organization and Development |

|Strand B. Matter and Energy Transformations |

|Strand D. Heredity and Reproduction |

|Strand E. Evolution and Diversity |

| |

|5.4 Earth Systems Science: All students will understand that Earth operates as a set of complex, dynamic, and interconnected systems, and |

|is a part of the all-encompassing system of the universe. |

|Strand A. Objects in the Universe |

|Strand C. Properties of Earth Materials |

|Strand F. Climate and Weather |

|Strand G. Biogeochemical Cycles |

| |

|Assessment Method |

|The baseline data is based on results from a district-created Science practices and content pre-assessment, covering the district’s yearly |

|first grade science curriculum, which is aligned to the New Jersey Core curriculum Content. The pre-assessment consists of __ questions in|

|both performance and written format. The performance items will require students to use equipment, write observations, and record findings|

|during an investigation. The written items will focus mostly on content, vocabulary and basic understandings and will consist of multiple |

|choice, short response and open -ended question. The multiple choice question will to show students’ background knowledge of concepts |

|covered in first grade. |

|Student Growth Objective |

| |

|85% of the students who attend 80% of the time will increase their knowledge and skills relating to science concepts as measured by the |

|pre- assessment and the post-assessment for first grade, by one proficiency point. All students will be expected to achieve a target score|

|of at least 65%. |

|Baseline Data |

|(Please include what you know about your students’ performance/skills/achievement levels at the beginning of the year, as well as any |

|additional student data or background information used in setting your objective.) |
