December's M-Powerment Strategy: Data Driven Instruction

What does this look like in MGSD? Teachers...
  • Use pre- and post-assessments to assess growth
  • Use common formative assessments within grade levels to monitor progress
  • Offer remediation and re-teaching for specific students based on their specific weaknesses
  • Encourage student reflection and ownership of learning after assessments
  • Group students based on interests, ability, CFA results, and/or learning styles
  • Use self-correcting and prescriptive digital resources (iReady, Ten Marks, Study Island, etc.)
  • Implement data walls / notebooks, student data trackers, digital portfolios and self-evaluation
  • Provide small group instruction with flexible, data-driven groups
  • Use assessment results to drive lesson planning and design
  • Participate in data discussions based on student learning in PLCs, Grade Level, School and District levels
  • Give assignments based on student need and differentiation
  • Collect data to support MTSS
  • Review item analysis with students after assessments and correct misconceptions
