Action Learning Systems supports the use of data to analyze current conditions and focus on developing standards-based curriculum and delivery. It is essential that teachers and administrators be trained to access, interpret, and report both summative and formative data to all stakeholders.
Academic Learning Teams
Participants learn how to turn their collaborative community into a TEAM by determining: How do I get my teachers to work
as a team? How do I identify both academic and language goals for all of my students? Which sources of data should we be spending our time analyzing? Are my intervention effective? How should we analyze our lessons and plan for even more effective instruction? How do we hold ourselves and each other accountable for our action steps?
Assessment Analysis to Drive Instruction
Participants learn to analyze item and assessment results to determine the next instructional needs of students. They will learn how to develop a plan for a structured reteach loop when needed.
One of the essential pieces of data-driven decision-making is the gathering of implementation data from walking classrooms. Classroom observations can provide valuable data on program implementation and instructional practices like DII. Participants learn the process of walking through classrooms to examine student work and student perceptions of their learning. This process helps focus and align school-wide standards-based instructional strategies.
