Weeden Teachers are Data Driven

Using formative data to drive classroom instruction.

Weeden teachers masterfully use their formative data to determine the instructional needs of students. Formative data helps populate small groups, accelerate advanced students, and provide remediation for students that need it. A few of the ways that teachers collect formative data is through observation, exit slips, classroom work, homework, and tests. During Data Meetings last week, teachers identified a few of the ways they use formative data to shape their instruction. The section below describes what this looks like on each grade level.
