since spring tests were waved, will there be any information on the students Lexile and Quantile?
Monica Myers BCS Instructional Coach
50:32
Will it come after the BOY NWEA tests?
Tina Sherman
51:57
I was going to get my Lexile from the NWEA BOY test. We're giving our NWEA week of Aug. 10
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
52:10
Hi Monica, yes projected Lexile and Quantile measures based on each student's historical performance will be shared next month.
Kelly Connelly
52:13
Our office is working on our annual assessment web page refresh. The Lexile and Quantile pages are being refreshed as well, to reflect many of the resources you will learn about today. We expect the website refresh to go live in mid-August.
Monica Myers BCS Instructional Coach
52:49
Our tentative plan is to administer BOY NWEA Aug. 17.
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
52:54

Kelly Connelly

In the interim, our office will use the CTC listserv to share the recordings of and PowerPoint presentations used for these training sessions.
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
54:22
If you have trouble registering for the Hub, please chat me here or email me and we will find a time to walk through it together one-on-one!
Jenny Sego
54:26
We are also planning to give NWEA BOY in the first 2 weeks of school.
Amy Reno
58:48
How do we make sure we’re on the CTC listserv? And what does CTC stand for?
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:04:11
Lexile & Quantile Hub: https://hub.lexile.com/ Again, If you have trouble registering for the Hub, please chat me here or email me and we will find a time to walk through it together one-on-one!
Kelly Connelly
01:05:52
There is one CTC (Corporation Test Coordinator) designated with IDOE for each corporation or nonpublic school. The CTC listserv is a communication our office sends most every week to CTCs throughout the state.
Justin Hoering
01:06:04
How can I get a copy of the PPT for the Lexile presentation from the 15th?
Kelly Connelly
01:08:23
Our office will send the recordings and PowerPoint presentations for the first three sessions (e.g., Lexile, Quantile, Hub) via the CTC listserv in the next couple of weeks, once all of these materials are ready. We will also post to the IDOE website once our website refresh is complete (mid-August).
Justin Hoering
01:09:10
Thank you!
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:09:24
For help getting started with each of the tools within the Lexile & Quantile Hub, please see our “Getting Started” chart. This chart includes links to the Quick Start Guide and video tutorial for each tool: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-cxhOlgFIDkGeLjO0RZi58Bnx8sck2kvtKmbeSZd6q8/edit?usp=sharing
Jenny Sego
01:10:00
The next sessions are all offered during school hours while we are in session. Will any of these be offered during after school hours for teachers in the classroom?
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:11:07
Jenny, these three repeated sessions will be the same--attend as you are able. A recording will also be share following the events.
Kelly Connelly
01:13:09
I will email copies of the PowerPoint presentations from last week's Lexile and Quantile trainings to everyone on this call - once this training has concluded. Thanks!
Krista Clanin
01:20:05
Is it possible to see if the books are available for free digitally ?
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:21:32
Krista, within the title details pages in Find a Book, there is a link to the Open Library.... this would be possible source of digital text
Krista Clanin
01:22:22
Thank you:)
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:23:38
Local libraries might also provide digital text services, such as Overdrive and Hoopla, that offer many of these titles as well
Dean & Karen Wasylyshen
01:26:13
When students read individually, must they read from teacher's device? (Thinking COVID guidelines)
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:28:10
Dean & Karen, these digital texts would be checked out by students (or their parents) and viewed on/downloaded to their own devices
Karen Wasylyshen
01:35:06
NICE - Love this analyzer!
TClindaniel
01:35:32
What was the name of the website she used for the fairy tales?
Kathryn Wetzel
01:36:00
What was that story website again? Brownilocks?
Karen Wasylyshen
01:38:38
Is there a simple measure/assessment that we can give student on this site to give us an estimated Lexile score?
TClindaniel
01:39:57
If we give NWEA in the fall, will our students' information be automatically updated into this system?
Kathryn Wetzel
01:40:37
I found the website: https://www.brownielocks.com/fracturedfairytales.html
Monica Myers BCS Instructional Coach
01:40:39
Same question I had earlier.....
TerriFreeman
01:42:05
Are these reports able to be printed for students and their parents?
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:42:59
Terri, that functionality is coming soon!
TClindaniel
01:44:02
Thanks, Kathryn.
Kathryn Wetzel
01:45:15
You're welcome!
Kathryn Wetzel
01:48:28
What do you recommend we do to gain insight into students' abilities before the first day of school? I teach freshmen who come from many different feeder schools; therefore, it is vital I know as much as possible in the beginning to ensure they are in the appropriate course and that I am ready to differentiate appropriately? It sounds like we have to wait until the middle of August or later. Thank you!
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:54:41
Here is a direct link to the Summer Math Challenge that can be shared with families: hub.lexile.com/summer-math-challenge
Tina Sherman
01:54:47
What grades does the Summer Math Challenge cover?
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:55:24
Students who have just completed grades 1-8
Tina Sherman
01:55:33
Thank you
Jenny Sego
01:56:50
I may have missed this. If parents sign up their children, can teachers see their progress?
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
01:58:33
Hi Jenny, no. However, parents can print a certificate at the end of the summer to document what the student completed and then can share that certificate with a teacher
Jenny Sego
02:00:58
Thank you.
Karen Wasylyshen
02:01:21
Can we direct the resources to child's Parent HUB?
Matt Copeland (mcopeland@lexile.com)
02:01:46
Yes, Karen! Jane is about to show you how!
