Education is truly “an Art and a Science”. Through experience, experimentation, mentorship and research, teachers strive to add to their instructional tool belts. One area that is often underutilized is the educational data sets that are available to educators. At the classroom level this information can be used to better target instruction, track student progression and uncover where additional supports may be needed. At the leadership level these same data sets can help to identify areas of needed support for staff, target professional development and plan holistically to better support all learners in our schools.
In this session we will explore the processes, tools and philosophies that Wolf Creek Public Schools utilizes with their educational data sets and the impact that this has had on learning in Wolf Creek.
