How do we use student data not only in the moment, but intentionally, with a long-term strategic plan? Summative test data provides us with a single snapshot of how students are faring at one point in time, but by using thoughtful projection strategies, we can transform individual snapshots into a complete portrait spanning across grades. Taking the standard benchmark years when reading scores are assessed, we can anticipate the needs of students and create long-term strategic literacy plans accordingly.
In this edWebinar, learn:
- How to use data to meet the needs of the whole child assuring all learners receive an equal opportunity to learn
- How to implement a process that routinely informs instruction and monitors student growth
- How to provide a continuum of learning focusing on building strong literacy skills and capacities to meet the rigorous requirements for college, career, and life
Watch Dr. Karen Burke for a look at how we can use data to plan curricula, instruction, and professional development to meet the needs of tomorrow’s students. This edWebinar will be particular benefit to elementary teachers and school and district leaders.
