  • Why Use Data?

  • Data are process tools for talking reflectively and productively about the “what” and “how” of teaching and learning.

  • Data help to forge a common bond, a “culture” of acceptable and unacceptable patterns and practices for teaching and learning.

Data have no meaning…meaning is imposed through interpretation. How we understand is the objective.

Wellman and Lipton, 2003


Using multiple data points to drive instruction

Successful schools use data-not for accountability, something that is done to them from outside forces- but rather as responsibility, a means of making rational decisions responding to intrinsic obligation.

Questions for PLC’s

  • What questions does this data bring up?

  • What data would help you answer these questions?

  • Where are you going to get the data? When?

  • When are you getting back together to look at needed data?

Next Steps?

  • Register for PD

  • Align yourself with a PLC (if you don’t already have one). This is usually your department or a sub-group within your department…but be creative.

  • Fill out the PLC form and turn it in to Dotson by 11/10.
