Converting "data" to usable "information".

Mitch Fowler (@fowlerm) and Andrew Shauver (@hs_math_phys) lead the #MichED discussion on data.

Challenge: Read the article Data Rich But Information Poor to set your thinking for the chat.

Remember, questions are a guideline and are NOT set for a specific time during the chat. Flow of the conversation will dictate timing and/or question changes.

Q1 - What does data mean to you?

Q2 - How do you use data in a meaningful way?

Q3 - What role should course wide student failure rates play in data decisions?

Q4 - How do you involve students in the assessment process, especially data discussions?

Q5 - How do you balance formative, summative, and standardized assessment data?
Q6: What are some examples you have of data walls? (type of data, bonus for pics).

Wednesday, March 11th, 8-9pm

This is an online event.

If you are new to #Miched or Twitter chats , here are some "norms" to help you out.

1. Introduce yourself (name, district, role/responsibility (including grade level)

2. Watch for questions to be tweeted out by moderator (this evening @fowlerm)

3. Questions will be tweeted as “Q1: …………….”

4. Respond with “A1: ………”

5. Don’t forget to include the #miched hashtag!

6. Don’t worry about keeping up. Better to engage with one or two people. Chat will be “storified” (a method for archiving Tweets), tweeted out using #miched and posted to miched.net on Thursday.

7. At the end of the chat, please complete the participation form. We are working toward building a powerful community of engaged educators!
