Even in a normal school year, the prospect of pausing midyear to analyze data and identify necessary adjustments can feel overwhelming and difficult to fit into schedules. However, in a year where so much has changed and in which students’ needs are so great, it’s more important than ever. A midyear check helps your team celebrate and maximize areas of success as well as pinpoint necessary changes to systems and processes—all while there’s still time in the year to take action and impact student outcomes and experiences. But what should that data analysis look like? How can it be approached in a strategic and time-efficient manner? What lenses should educators take to better understand growth and equity?

Join us for an edWebinar to discover a straightforward methodology for analyzing and understanding growth, examining data through an equity lens, and identifying midyear changes to improve instruction and support throughout the rest of the year—no matter where learning takes place.

In this session, you will:

  • Examine key data to explore at midyear and strategies to interpret the story your data are telling
  • Unpack straightforward, easy-to-follow explanations for measuring and understanding growth data
  • Learn strategies for taking an equity lens to your data analysis
  • Discover sample questions, meeting structures, and other resources for implementing this work in your own school or district

This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, data analysts and leaders, student services leaders, assessment leaders, school psychologists, instructional coaches, and MTSS and RtI coordinators. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
