Using Data for Instructional Decisions
  • Brenda Benson
  • Fifth District Elementary

PT3 Grant Goal
  • Prepare preservice teachers to use technology to
    interpret and analyze student and school data to
    develop data-driven instructional decisions.

3
Data and Dieting
  • What is the connection ?

4
How is Data Collection Like Dieting?
Data Collection Dieting
Want to measure student learning Want to measure physical fitness
One source of data to monitor student improvement MSA One source of data to monitor weight loss daily scale check
Relationship between 1 test and reading ability is indirect. Relationship between a persons weight and physical fitness is indirect.
5
Using the Data
Data Collection Dieting
Additional data CTBS scores Unit tests Classroom performance Skill checks Inventories Additional Data Resting heart rate Cholesterol level Strength Endurance
6
Using the Data
Data Collection Dieting
The data will not help to improve student achievement if there is not a plan for interpreting and using the data. The data will not improve a persons physical fitness if there is not a plan for how to improve.

Data Collection
  • The only way for teachers and schools to
    identify which students can demonstrate
    proficiency on the Maryland Content Standards is
    to continuously assess and monitor students as
    part of their classroom instruction.
  • (http//www.mdk12.org/data/progress/index.html)
  • Student performance on assignments and
    assessments enable teachers to make informed
    instructional decisions regarding teaching and
    re-teaching specific indicators.

What does this mean for the classroom teacher?
9
Teachers need to collect and analyze a variety of
data in a variety of ways.
  • Types of Data Collected
  • Strategies for Analyzing Data
  • Tools to collect and analyze data

10
Types of Data Collected
11
Types of Data Collected
  • Formative Data
  • Daily assessments
  • Summative Data
  • End of unit or theme
  • Houghton Mifflin Theme Tests
  • BCPS Math Summative Tests
  • MSA and CTBS

12
Sample Formative Assessment

Strategies for Analyzing Data
15
Strategy 1 for Analyzing DataIndividual Teacher
Data Collection
16
Individual Teacher Data Collection
  • Teachers review individual student assignments
    and assessments to identify strengths and
    weaknesses.
  • Teachers adjust daily instruction based on this
    information.

17
Strategy 2 for Analyzing DataGrade Level Data
Discussions
18
Grade level groups analyze data
  • Teachers enter data into Excel and then
    manipulate it to see which students are still
    having trouble overall.
  • Teachers analyze strengths and weaknesses as a
    grade level each month.
  • Teachers identify interventions, staff
    development and materials needed at quarterly
    data discussions.

Strategy 3 for Analyzing DataVertical Team Data
Discussion
21
Vertical Teams Analyze Data
  • Teams of teachers working
  • with similar types of learners
  • across grade levels
  • share teaching strategies.

22
Tools to collect and analyze data
23
Tools Used for Collecting and Analyzing Data
  • Individual Teacher Grade Books
  • Paper or Electronic
  • Houghton Mifflin Theme Test (required assessment
    by local school system)
  • Grade Level Data Summary

24
Practice using Data Tools
  • Analyzing Data
  • Working in small groups

25
Using Data to make Instructional Decisions
  • Use the Houghton Mifflin Theme Test data
    provided.
  • Use data to make decisions about instruction.
  • What skills need re-teaching?
  • What strategies will you provide?
  • What resources/professional development do you
    need to help with your instruction?
