  4. Primary Purpose of STARS? SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT • Every educator knows learning targets (standards). • Every educator appropriately and accurately measures the targets (assessment). • Every educator uses data for improved instruction and student learning. (accountability)

  5. Two Nebraska Case Studies • Customized Data Sessions • Inexperienced Using Data • Desire to learn data analyses and involve all staff

  6. District Two • 60 staff members • 3 administrators • 850 students • Homogeneous Population • 30% SES • 98% Caucasian • 15% Mobility • 13% SPED • District One • 230 staff members • 17 administrators • 3,500 students • Diverse by Nebr. standards • 40% SES • 55% Hispanic • 25% mobility • 17% SPED

  7. METHODOLOGY Step 1: NDE staff customized each district’s data • District One • had been collecting large amounts of data • “granular” – no big picture • huge notebook • District Two • didn’t have any data

  8. Step 2: NDE staff on-site and taught: • Strategic planning for grouping staff • Formats/purposes of data displays • Embedded assessment literacy – assessment types/purposes

  9. DATA ANALYSIS • What does the data tell us? (factual) • What might this mean? (hypothesis) • What should we do about it? (action)

  10. Conclusions: Commonalities Across Districtsregardless of size, demographics • Neither administrators nor teachers knew these steps • Assessment literacy was lacking • “Hungry” for data analysis skill • Willingness to learn and act • Both districts have extended this K-12

  11. RECOMMENDATIONS • Statewide professional development in data analysis • Statewide professional development in assessment literacy • Improved teacher and administrator preparation • Statewide model of analysis formats tied to instruction • Data support teams
