Using Data to Inform Instruction
Using student growth data to inform instruction can be a valuable and efficient tool for driving students’ academic gains. When you make data actionable, you make assessment matters. To fully benefit from assessment, students and teachers need to use the data to invoke meaningful change.
The focus of this GPLC Instructional Topics is intended to provide opportunities for teachers to proficiently master the implementation of using data to inform instruction in their own classrooms. In this instructional topic, we will focus on how to adjust instruction to meet students’ needs.
Connections with Danielson’s Framework will be integrated throughout the course to address diverse student needs by using assessment data effectively to guide instruction considering a variety of assessments, such as pre-assessments, formative assessments, and summative assessments.
