Most schools and districts have lots of data about their schools and their students but it is “siloed” in separate places and not easily available to help answer the “what-if” questions that drive the discovery of root cause issues of instructional and operational concerns. School staff has limited time to gather and review data. For PreK – 12 school data to be used effectively, it needs to be timely, easy to use, easy to understand (visual) and detailed.

This session will demonstrate how to harness the power of these disparate data sets – student information systems, cloud based assessments, student and teacher attendance, teacher and student schedules, discipline records, report cards, ethnicity, special education and RTI interventions, and many other available electronic data sets. District, building, and classroom leaders need to utilize 21st century teaching and learning tools that aggregate their formative assessment data and empower them with the ability to inform ongoing instructional planning that improves student achievement. Teachers and principals need to quickly assess trends across grade levels, within classrooms, and for individual students to enhance the focus on needed interventions for student success. Summative assessment results are useful for accountability and long term planning but are not as valuable as the data from formative assessments gathered throughout the process of teaching. Proactive school and classroom leaders utilize regularly updated 360° profiles of their schools, classrooms, and their individual students, to target plans for instruction, set goals for growth, and to decide what resources are needed for the next stage of instruction. Come learn how to sort, filter, analyze, and compare your school and district data with easy to use visualizations that maximize the precious time available in your school’s professional learning communities.
