MSTEP Data Day - for Elementary and Middle School Teams

For Elementary and Middle School Leadership Teams - Understand your state-level data and how it relates to the state accountability system. Complete all state-level data analysis for your Needs Assessment and Continuous Improvement Plans.

Recommend groups of 3-4 from each elementary and middle school building in the district. Must include principal or other building/district leadership plus additional teacher leaders from the school improvement team.


The day will be broken into four parts:


  1. Understand the state accountability system, growth, and proficiency trends. Disaggregate data by demographics.
  2. Understand mischooldata, ourschooldata, EIDEX. Connect to district and building systems.
  3. Use the Target Analysis Report to identify missing pieces in school curriculum, resources, or time allocation
  4. Run a problem-solving protocol to identify root causes and assist with planning and next steps
