Using Data to Improve Literacy 3B – September 2016

Thanks for participating in our first session it was great to meet all of you and get our year started off on a great foot with some in-depth assessment conversation.

In this first session we had a chance to explore the different types of assessment that we are using in our educational systems to improve student achievement.  We brainstormed what the different assessment data we collect means and what measures we are collecting that satisfy these different assessment types.  We also briefly explored reliable and valid data and rolled out the Outcomes-Driven Model for analyzing and interpreting our assessment data.

Here is the PPT we worked through:

Homework for next Session: Please come prepared with assessment data to use in activities that we will accomplish.  We will be looking into identifying and validating the data that we are currently collecting.  Modeling will be included.
