Conquering the Challenges of Using Data to Inform and Improve
From Hunter-Gatherer to Data Leader
Do you spend your days hunting for and gathering data?
When you find the data, what do you do with it?
Is the data you found what you need?
What data is important to analyze?
What is the next step?
Did you know… if you could analyze your chronically absent students over cumulative years you would find a student that misses 20 days of school for 9 years has lost a full year of instruction and high achieving students who are not showing growth could be affected by sudden poor attendance.
Did you know… if you could monitor teacher assessments used throughout the year and analyze summary/benchmark assessments you could change instruction to include similar question styles as the State Assessments to improve performance and monitor results to show student growth and decline early enough for you to implement changes.
Did you know… if you could analyze the curriculum implemented throughout the year you would find coverage gaps and frequency of time spent on skills taught that you can adjust to align with testing data.
