Harnessing the Power of Data to Promote Student Success

Educators use data constantly. We use the affective data we gather from observing our students interact with eachother to make effective cooperative groups, to address social issues within our classroom, and to reach individual students. We also use data from student assessments. In this presentation I use data from two formative assessments with my IB Higher Level World History class. Students responded positively to the use of data to set goals for improvement and I used the data to inform my instruction. Data can be a powerful tool to promote student reponsiblity for learning and success. Click on the image to access a copy of the slideshow.
