Utilizing materials from the What Works Clearinghouse, and other evidence-based sources, participants will:
- Learn the basics of student achievement data—what it is, where to find it, what to do with it
- Practice working together to analyze student achievement data and make instructional decisions, using a research-based process
- Assess their school’s current process for using data to improve instruction, using a comprehensive planning template
- Explore strategies for improving outcomes for students with disabilities, English language learners, and other students whose achievement falls short
Using student achievement data to support instructional decision-making is a collaborative process. Therefore, participants are encouraged to register in teams, either already-formed data teams or simply multiple participants from the same school. A portion of this workshop will be dedicated to planning and working in school teams, but individuals who attend on their own will benefit as well.
Participants should plan to bring laptops and as many sources of student achievement data as possible. Web-based sources are preferred. Data sets in electronic or hard copy form also can be used.
