Data collection can be time-consuming, confusing, and difficult to manage—but teachers need to master it so they can make informed decisions in the classroom. In this edWebinar, Cindy Golden, Ed.D., University of West Florida faculty member and autism consultant at Florida State University’s Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD), will discuss her new Data Collection Toolkit. You’ll build your understanding of what data collection involves, discover the steps to creating an organized classroom data collection system, and learn the basics of data analysis.
You’ll get answers to key questions like:
- Why should I collect data in my classroom?
- What are the basic steps to data collection in any environment?
- What are some ways to collect academic data and monitor progress?
- What are the types of behavioral data, and how do I determine which data to collect?
- What are some easy ways to organize data collection for IEP goals and objectives?
- What are some ideas for organizing the data collection process in my classroom?
- How do I analyze the data I have collected?
- How do I use analyzed data in IEP or parent meetings?
You’ll also learn about the self-graphing data sheets available in The Data Collection Toolkit. These forms make it easy to collect data, put it into graphs, and analyze progress all at the same time. K-12 special education directors, special educators, school administrators, paraprofessionals, and education consultants will benefit from attending this session.
