Effective skills in data analysis and interpretation are essential to improved student achievement. This service is aimed at supporting school districts in collecting and analyzing various types of data to identify strengths and weaknesses at either the program level or student level. The Instructional Planning for Assessment Service provides instructional support by training teachers and administrators in the development, proper administration and accurate analysis of student performance assessment data.
This service provides assistance to component districts in creating, improving/sustaining a culture of data-driven decision making through protocols, common language and goal setting. These services can be tailored to support administrative teams, data teams, departments and Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) in collecting and analyzing data through a systematic, evidence-based approach.
All educators with a desire to enhance their skills and/or resources for data-driven decision-making can benefit from the continuum of services that are available. The continuum ranges from the provision of comprehensive analyses of district data to general support and training as districts analyze their own data.
