How do we know if our students learning?

If we want to close the gaps in achievement, then teachers need actionable information to plan their teaching and reteaching for students.

With increasing accountability, using data to inform instructional practices is more important than ever. Most educators, however, did not enter the profession because they wanted to be statisticians or number crunchers. The data collection and analysis process can be daunting, particularly when it comes from the top down.

It is critical to involve administrators, teachers, and students in the process of determining what data can be regularly collected inside and outside of the classroom, and how the information gleaned from an analysis of that data can be successfully used to increase positive outcomes for students, teachers, and schools.

Our Data-Driven Decisions training puts instructional practices gleaned from student performance in a format that teachers understand.

Learning to collect data and analyze the results helps teachers adjust instruction to get the most out of their lessons. When you create a data culture, learn how to run data meetings, and understand quality assessments you can improve and adjust instruction in ways that are helpful to student outcomes. In this workshop, we show you how to inspect data, set goals, and track data in a way that is useful and not cumbersome. You’ll be able to identify where students struggle and teach more effectively.
