Managing a Data Driven Classroom

Focus Questions:

  • What is types of data and how do we look at it?
  • What is a Data Driven Classroom and how does it effect instruction?
  • How do we manage a Data Driven Classroom?

Think-Pair-Share Activity

*Take a few minutes to list the data you use to

drive instruction.

*Discuss with a partner

*Share at your table by writing a list on chart


*Have a reporter share with the group

formative assessment data
Formative Assessment Data
  • Formative Assessment occurs in the short term, as learners are in the process of making meaning of new content and of integrating it into what they already know. Feedback to the learner is immediate (or nearly so), to enable the learner to change his/her behavior and understandings right away.

Formative Assessment Data
  • Formative Assessment also enables the teacher to "turn on a dime" and rethink instructional strategies, activities, and content based on student understanding and performance. His/her role here is comparable to that of a coach.
formative assessment data2
Formative Assessment Data
  • Formative Assessment can be as informal as observing the learner's work or as formal as a written test. Formative Assessment is the most powerful type of assessment for improving student understanding and performance.
interim assessment data
Interim Assessment Data
  • Interim Assessment takes place occasionally throughout a larger time period. Feedback to the learner is still quick, but may not be immediate. Interim Assessments tend to be more formal, using tools such as projects, written assignments, and tests.
interim assessment data1
Interim Assessment Data
  • Interim Assessment-The learner should be given the opportunity to re-demonstrate his/her understanding once the feedback has been digested and acted upon.
interim assessment data2
Interim Assessment Data
  • Interim Assessmentcan help teachers identify gaps in student understanding and instruction, and ideally teachers address these before moving on or by weaving remedies into upcoming instruction and activities.
summative assessment data
Summative Assessment Data
  • Summative Assessment takes place at the end of a large chunk of learning, with the results being primarily for the teacher's or school's use. Results may take time to be returned to the student/parent, feedback to the student is usually very limited, and the student usually has no opportunity to be reassessed.

Summative Assessment Data
  • Summative AssessmentSummative Assessment tends to have the least impact on improving an individual student's understanding or performance. Students/parents can use the results of Summative Assessments to see where the student's performance lies compared to either a standard or to a group of students.

Summative Assessment Data
  • Summative Assessment-Teachers/schools can use these assessments to identify strengths and weaknesses of curriculum and instruction, with improvements affecting the next year's/term's students.
types of data we collect activity
Types of Data we collect - Activity
  • In groups, discuss and label each assessment/data


I- Interim

S- Summative

  • Have a reporter share with whole group

With all of the data we collect, there is one piece of data that drives ALL of our instruction and MUST be taken into consideration no matter what data we are using…

components of a data driven classroom
Components of a Data Driven Classroom

The five major elements of data-driven instruction:

  • good baseline data,
  • measurable instructional goals,
  • frequent formative assessment,
  • professional learning communities, and
  • focused instructional interventions.
1 good baseline data
1. good baseline data
  • Previous Grades – Cumulative Folder
  • Interim Assessment Data - Universal Screeners
  • PASS Data
2 measurable instructional goals
2. measurable instructional goals
  • District Goals for :

Universal Screeners/Benchmarks/PASS

  • Teacher/Student created goals based on student data(focus on individual growth)
3 frequent formative assessment
3. frequent formative assessment
  • Frequent and VARIED types of formative assessments
4 professional learning communities
4. professional learning communities

1. What do we expect our students to learn?


2.  How will we know they are learning?


3.  How will we respond when they don’t learn?


4.  How will we respond if they already know it?


5 focused instructional interventions
5. focused instructional interventions
  • Small Group Instruction
  • Tiered Group Instruction (Tier II, Tier III)
  • Centers (leveled)
  • Re-teach – different ways
  • Modify – backtrack, build back ground knowledge
  • Computer Intervention
  • School –Wide Interventions
teacher data notebook activity
Teacher Data Notebook Activity
  • Think about your data notebook. Create a Table of Contents detailing the data that is contained in your notebook.
  • Share with a partner.
  • Compile a list at your table
  • Have a recorder share with the group
