Analyzing and Using Fresh Data........

Welcome back!

We have had the chance to get our feet wet for two days, the kiddos were subdued on Thursday, but back in full swing on Friday!

Now that we have fresh student data from MOY, how will you utilize this data to move your students forward in both achievement and growth? As you start or continue to analyze all of the numbers/reading levels in front of you, how will you prepare for the second half of the school year?

Questions to consider:

What are my data celebrations? Concerns?

Did all students have maintenance growth or true growth? If not, reflect on why you think this is?

Do I need to change my instructional approaches? How will I change them?

How can I meet each child's needs? Less whole group, more small group?

Do students know how they did? Do they understand what it means?

How do you plan to get the students involved in their own learning? Will you set goals with them?

How will students keep track of the progress towards their goals? Daily or weekly visual?

How often will you discuss student progress with them?

How will you communicate current student data with parents?

We are halfway through the year, students should have made at least a half a school year's growth from where they started. Of course, we always want more than that.......

Now is the time to make changes, adjustments to your own approach of teaching! How can we assist you in this? Please tell me your needs! Is there someone you would like to go watch for ideas? Would you like someone to come model in your classroom? The door is open.......we are here to help you grow as a teacher/leader!

I am looking forward to data meetings and your reflections on the year thus far.
