How to Make Your Data Work for You

How to Make Your Data Work for You training is created to give educators the tools to use data to inform instructional practice and shape school culture. The training will explore expectation and opportunity gaps and their relationship to the achievement gap. Participants will be introduced to a data protocol that will generate tangible evidence to meet and support challenges that exist at the school or district level. 

Participants will use the data analysis protocol to identify a research question, analyze their data, and present their next steps to the group. Participants are provided with a variety of AVID data reports but are encouraged to bring any data they would like to use as  part of their two-day experience. Participants will also receive Got Data? Now What?: Creating and Leading Cultures of Inquiry  by Laura Lipton and Bruce Wellman.


Who Should Attend
