“Dropping Balls”
Uncovering Student Ideas in Science
Mr. Miller has three different
balls. Each is about the same
size with a different mass.
Ball 1 is a wooden ball. Its mass is 28 g.
Ball 2 is a golf ball. Its mass is 46 g.
Ball 3 is a metal ball. Its mass is 110 g.
He holds his arms out and drops the
three balls at the same time from the
same height. In what order will the balls
hit the floor?

Prediction E:
Ball 1, then ball 2, then ball 3.
Ball 3, then ball 2, then ball 1.
Ball 2, then ball 3, then ball 1.
All three balls will hit the floor at about
the same time.
Ball 3 will hit first, followed by ball 1 and
ball 2 hitting the floor at the same time.
Choose a prediction and explain your thinking.

“7 Keys to Effective FEEDBACK”
1. Deal the Keys like playing cards to each
person at the table. Make sure each Key
2. Silently read the Key you have been dealt.
3. Once all have read their Key, one at a time
teach the meaning of your Key to the rest
of the table.
4. As you listen to the others at your table use
the bookmark to record your
understanding of each Key.
Remember our
Science Class?

Choose a prediction and explain your thinking.
What “rule” or reasoning did you use to make
Focus Question: In what order will the balls hit the floor?
Sample Exemplar
All three balls will hit the floor at the same time. The
reason is that they are all the same shape and size.
Gravity causes objects to fall at the same rate, but air
resistance can cause some things to fall slower. The
shape and size of an object determines how much air
pushes up on it and slows down its fall (air
resistance). When objects are the same size and
shape, they have the same amount of air pushing up
on them, so they will fall at the same rate. Since the
balls are all the same size and shape, they will fall at
the same rate and hit the ground at the same time.
Some people might think that mass will matter and
that the metal ball will hit the ground first because it
is heavier. We observed in class that only shape and
size matter.

Harvey Silver – The Core Six
Professional Learning 03.09.15 at the MISD
The Common Core State Standards represent the new
promise in education – the promise prepare all of our
students for college and careers and the challenges of the 21st
Century. In this interactive one-day workshop, participants
will identify key challenges in fulfilling the promise of the CC.
Dr. Harvey Silver will then introduce participants to the Core
Six: six easy-to-use researched-based strategies that teachers
at any grade level can use to develop their students’ core
thinking, literacy, and communication skills.

Student Growth Percentiles
Student
Growth Percentiles (SGPs)
represent one powerful way to quantify
the growth of individual students over time
Conceptually, SGPs describe the variation
of student’s growth (how much is greater
or less than) compared to the growth of
other students who had equivalent past
test scores
45
Student Growth Percentiles
In order to calculate SGPs
 Students
are grouped with other students
throughout the state who had equivalent scores
on the previous test
 Students are then ordered in their group based
on their score on the current year test
 Each student then receives a percentile rank
based on their order in the group
46
Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs)
Basic
questions
 What
is a Student Growth Percentile?
 How would proposed SGPs be calculated?
 Why are SGPs helpful for parents and educators?
Let’s
try to understand SGPs by looking at
two students who appear to be very
similar, but in reality, are very different
 Took
Jane
the most recent
test
of 434,
 which
happened to be the
state average, and
 Placed her in the
“Proficient” performance
level.
 But
what is her progress?
 How much growth has
she demonstrated?
 Also
John
took the most recent grade 4
mathematics test
 Also received a scaled score of 434,
 which happened to be the state
average, and
 he was also in the “Proficient”
performance level.
 But what is his progress?
 How much growth has he
demonstrated?
One way to better understand
Jane’s growth would be to look at
students who scored the same as
Jane on last year’s mathematics
test.
One way to better understand
Jane’s growth would be to look at

In reality, there are many
students in Michigan
who scored the same as
Jane on last year’s 3rd
but let’s imagine that
there were only 10.
301
Each of these students scored a 301
on last year’s 3rd grade mathematics test and
have now taken this year’s 4th grade
mathematics test as well.

A Student Growth Percentile (SGP) of 90 indicates that
Jane scored better on the 4th grade mathematics test
than 90% of the students who started at the same
point based on the previous test.
448
Let’s go through that same
process for John by identifying
the students in the state who
scored the same as John on last
year’s mathematics test.
Once again, in reality, there are many
students in Michigan who scored the
same as John on last year’s
mathematics test, but let’s
imagine that there were only 10.
364
Each of these students scored a
364 on last year’s 3rd grade
mathematics test and have now

A Student Growth Percentile (SGP) of 20 indicates that John scored better on the 4th
grade mathematics test than only 20% of the students who started at the same
point as he did on the previous test.
Even though Jane and John received the same score on the 3rd grade
mathematics test, looking at their SGPs reveals that their growth is very
different, and their academic progress in the last year varies significantly.
Jane’s SGP of 90 shows her learning over
time is greater than the majority of
students who started at the same point as
she did.
John’s SGP of 20 tells a different story.
John’s learning over time is less than
other students who started at the same
point as he did.
Student Growth Percentiles
 Student
Growth Percentiles (SGPs) describe a student’s
learning over time compared to other students with
equivalent prior test scores
 An SGP of 50 shows average learning over time, with
higher SGPs showing higher than average learning and
lower SGPs showing lower than average learning
 SGPs are a very useful and powerful way to understand
student learning over time
