Synopsis

How to accelerate analysis into action







Using data for school improvement is a key goal of Race to the Top, therefore now is the time to make data-driven school improvement a priority. However, many educators are drowning in data. Boost your professional learning community's ability to translate data into action with this newest book from Robert T. Hess and Pam Robbins. The Data Toolkit provides ten easy-to-use tools that don't require statistical expertise, can be implemented in a timely manner, and facilitate problem-solving at classroom, school, and district levels. These proven methods help educators:











- Frame the questions





- Drive the conversation





- Engage in productive reflection





- Uncover understandings





- Create a data-driven plan





- Achieve and monitor results











Written in an educator-friendly format each chapter contains instructions on using the tool, a sample scenario, and examples-practical tools that will help your PLC be the best it can be.











Also included are case studies that show how data teams, PLCs, and individual teachers have used the book's methods in their own settings. The culminating school improvement mapping tool guides the team through designing an action plan focused on increasing student learning and achievement outcomes.
