K-12 Data

K-12 Data is your answer to data collection, storage, warehousing, and analysis. Data-driven decisions improve student achievement. Student-centered teachers and administrators sometimes have a difficult time analyzing impersonal data; however, formative and summative assessment data absolutely makes all the difference in the world when assessing whether a student, class, or teacher is ready to move to the next topic or unit.

Operating as usual

[02/26/20]   If you would like to improve your data analysis skills, follow us here. We will be posting free courses you can take to improve your skills.

[07/20/19]   Planning an online course for support staff in using Google Sheets for administrative tasks. If you have staff who struggle with spreadsheets, leave a comment with the specific tasks that plague them.

[07/09/19]   If you are interested in an online course explaining how to crunch data, please respond. Let us know what you'd like to learn, and how much you would be willing to pay for such knowledge.

[03/26/19]   Data comes in all sorts of forms. While the big-stakes tests are most important to the administration, it's the formative assessments that are the most valuable for teachers to use for instruction. Some great tools for formative assessment include but are not limited to Socrative, Nearpod, @Google Forms, @OtusK12, Classkick, etc.

[02/09/19]   Don’t make everything about data, and don’t ignore the data you have. There are patterns to be found. Look to see if different data points align and are reliable. Sometimes one source is more reliable than another.

[01/24/19]   If you or someone you know needs training on how to analyze data on students, message us to collaborate. We train in both MIcrosoft Excel and Google Sheets from beginner to advanced.

There are more tools on the market today than ever before for data analysis. Check out Otus an LMS that has a data dashboard, so you see multiple data points at once.

Another great tool is Tableau Software which has relational database capabilities in drag-and-drop environments that are much simpler.

[09/09/17]   How do schools and teachers use #data from the year before to drive instructional decisions?

Step 1: Break down the data. It MUST be digital to be able to sort and filter. You can use Excel or Google Sheets.

Step 2: Analyze common subject results across one grade level to look for patterns of strengths and weaknesses.

Step 3: For strengths, praise the teacher in person and ask them what they are doing that they think has made the difference. Ask them to share out in a beginning faculty meeting or a genius bar rotation for PD. Also, ask for volunteers to mentor or coach teachers who might be weak in these areas.

Step 4: For weaknesses, do not accuse or intimidate teachers. Ask them if they can identify any weaknesses in the materials, curriculum, timing, order or lessons, etc., that might require some modifications for the next year. An example that I have seen is that the content that is covered AFTER the state tests are administered is always low on state tests for obvious reasons. To address this issue, some districts have moved those items to be first or at least before the test is administered. Just be careful to pay close attention to content that builds on other content as well as whether the timing is developmentally appropriate.

Step 5: Ask teachers to look at their own data and identify their personal strengths and weaknesses. Use this to build a pool of people who can give help in certain areas and pair up teachers who can help or coach in those areas. It is much less intimidating getting help from another teacher/peer/colleague than it is getting it from an administrator.
