It’s easy to be overwhelmed by data and to miss the important things it could tell you about your school or educational system throughout the school year. Too many administrators wait for year-end results to identify problems and lose sight of the essential numbers that can help drive improvements in education.
In this webinar, Jay McTighe, the best-selling author of The Understanding by Design series, tells you how to work more confidently and expertly with data and how to translate it into more effective teaching.
- What should count as “data?
- How should Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) analyze data and plan for improvements?
- How can we use data from diagnostic and formative assessments to guide teaching?
- How might we use “data” as a lever for educational change?
- How can we communicate results fairly, honestly and consistently?
Analyzing data is not just about identifying problems. This presentation focuses on identifying strengths as well. Jay shows you how to combine multiple sources of data in a “photo album” of assessment rather than relying on the “snapshot” created by a single test. He discusses how to use this photo album to guide school/district improvement efforts and adjust teaching approaches to fit individual learning styles.
