Using data in schools

When practicing truth-seeking, we look for multiple sources of data that can give us a rich picture of a challenge or situation. At a classroom level, the busy-ness of the profession can tempt us to forgo using the variety of assessment methods that would otherwise help paint a fuller—and truer—portrait of a student or classroom’s academic progress. Use this activity to have participants read an Education Week article and explore ideas from a number of education experts on how to create a richer portrait of student learning using multiple data sources.
