Data-Driven Student Success

Virtual & Interactive Workshop

Using Assessment to Improve Student Outcomes

Why Data-Driven Student Success?

On average, the practice of having students track their own progress is associated with a 32 percentile point gain in their achievement.

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. The content of this workshop is research-based and ready to be implemented into schools today!

DAY 3 - April 19, 2022 - 6:00-7:30PM CST

Using Data to Improve Student Outcomes

  • Determine how collaboration with stakeholders can strengthen data collection practices in the school/district. 
  • Utilize best practices for data-driven instruction to create a sustainable plan for data collection.
  • Design a model instructional plan based on student data.

Schools that use data to make decisions are following some of the best advice from both the world of business (Bass, 1981) and the world of education (Teddlie & Reynolds, 2000).

If schools are in the business of helping students learn, then the data used to guide decisions should relate directly to student achievement. Our sole purpose as educators is to ensure that every student learns. ... Simply put, data-driven instruction is using information gathered from learning results to determine what comes next in instruction

Effective schools use data well. They don't just collect it, but they use it to make informed decisions about student progress, instructional practice, and reteaching.  This is exactly what Dr. Ennis will teach you to do in this workshop.

Why You Should Attend

Reason 1: Data should be used to improve student outcomes.

Teachers and administrators are constantly asked to collect data from assessments, observations, and other sources, but all too often, it gets filed in binders and never used. Data can be powerful in the instructional design process but only if educators understand how to use it to improve student outcomes. 

Reason 2: Students need an active role in data analysis.

When students are brought into the data collection and analysis process, they begin to take ownership over their own learning and achievement.  

Reason 3: Teachers deserve efficiency and relevance.

Dr. Kristie Ennis will demonstrate how data can be a tool in instructional design rather than a barrier to student success or just another “thing” teachers have to check off a task list.

Dr. Ennis has worked with schools all across the country on dissecting data and using it to inform instructional practice. She also still has a classroom of her own where she utilizes these practices. 

Kristie is very relatable. Her experience in the classroom makes her training so implementable. I love her energy!

Dana Buechlein

Dr. Ennis kept us engaged the whole time. This training really helped my teachers understand how to use feedback to adjust instruction.  Eye-opening!

I love that Kristie is a classroom teacher and easily shares her knowledge of exactly how to uses data to make informed decisions. She really gets teaching, being one herself.
