Collecting & Using Data
Why is data crucial to student success?
Knowing exactly what each student has mastered and not mastered can only be achieved through a constant and repeated cycle of action > data in > action > data in > action > data in... Teachers with this information can truly address the precise needs of each student and raise achievement dramatically.
Using Weekly Assessments
Waiting for quarterly interims leaves less time to intervene. Quiz after each standard is taught.
Tracking Not Watching
When students work monitor for understanding instead of completion and record the data!
Compile Student Data
Have one place where student data and student work to make analysis easy.
Student Data Trackers
Students should be aware of their goals and progress toward that goal each day.
Daily Check for Understanding (CFU)
Ensure that your lesson was successful by creating a daily CFU.
Analyzing & Responding to Data
Post Assessment Analysis
Looking at the data and the student work will lead to informed action.
Small group instruction is essential to meeting the diverse needs of your classroom.
In the Moment Pivot
Don't wait to differentiate your instruction until your formal assessment, act in the moment!
Many students need extra help. We as educators must find time and make it meaningful.
