Description

Teachers have a treasure chest of student knowledge. But how can they find new ways of using these data to strengthen their classroom?

In Strengthen Your Classroom with Student Data: A Practical Guide of New Ways for Educators to Improve Results, authors Joseph Giancola, Joanne Caniglia, Justin Gates, and Linda Paulus isolate four elements that K-12 educators must employ for data analysis to be successful. They are:

  • Response to Intervention
  • Differentiated instruction
  • Value-added growth of students
  • Continuous progress monitoring

Strengthen Your Classroom with Student Data includes reflection questions and professional development activities. As teachers and administrators work together to affect school change by using student data, they must coordinate all four elements to achieve maximum success. In Strengthen Your Classroom, you will learn how to:

  • adjust your plans to match your students’ needs, interests, and abilities
  • check students’ test results to trace the roots of their core learning progressions
  • demonstrate student progress to your stakeholders
