Data-Driven Decision Making: Implementing Strategies for Student Achievement
Presented by: Lee Jenkins
This course takes a fresh approach to capturing and analyzing student data, moving away from the conventional Bell Curve which reflects the failures of teachers and students as much as the successes. Instead, this course looks at data-driven decisions which use classroom data well beyond letter grades in the form of graphs, charts and diagrams which inform instructional practice, not just reflect the current status, to improve student achievement.
In this course educators will learn how to choose the right tools to make data-driven decisions and be given examples in workshop settings of the process for charting and reading data that provides insight and helps guide instruction and resource deployment.
