What We Brought Back:
MCPS is on the Right Track
People act in congruence with what they believe,
perceive, or think about different topics.
What educators are doing to get the results that
they are getting.
Base decisions on multiple data sources.
“Having the knowledge and skills to function effectively within a particular context.”
“The ability to interpret and use multiple data sources effectively to improve teaching and learning.”
‐ Nancy Love
Using Data to Improve Learning for All:
A Collaborative Inquiry Approach
“Teachers will need support both to become assessment literate and to adopt workable ways to gather, analyze, reflect on, and discuss data. Uncomfortable questions about the nature of standardized testing, school goals, and leadership may arise. Administrators should help their learning community respectfully talk through tough questions. They will build teacher capacity and leadership in the process.”
The MCPS Student Achievement Team is
working to maintain our district-wide focus on
student achievement, build upon what we are
already doing well, and provide direction for
our future work to keep Students First.
