Data Teams occur on district, school, grade and/or content levels. At the grade or content level, teachers collaboratively analyze data from multiple data sources that include District Benchmark, State Assessments, DIBELS, and other common formative assessments, identify strengths of learning and obstacles to student learning and determine research-based instructional strategies that will best address their students and learning objectives. Teachers reconvene to analyze the effectiveness of the instructional strategies selected and implemented at the previous data team meeting by examining student performance data that was measured using common assessments. School and District Data Teams are also used to develop and monitor improvement.
  • Discuss the use of data teams in your LEA/Charter.
  • Relate the data findings of the data teams in your LEA/Charter to the strategic planning for professional learning.
  • Identify the strengths and opportunities evident in the multiple data sets available to refine the focus in your LEA/Charter.

    In this interactive webinar, Douglas B. Reeves and Tony Flach from The Leadership and Learning Center will discuss their latest research and observations about how teachers and administrators can make the most effective use of student data.

    "Looking at data is meaningless," Reeves contends, "unless there is an analysis of the causes behind the data."

    The webinar will include specific ways to monitor teaching and leadership practices and how to link those to improved student results.
