What would it take to get learning growth for every student, every year in your school?
“Data Literacy” is the ability to collect, analyze, communicate, and use multiple measures of data to continuously improve all aspects of the learning organization, especially teaching and learning.
“Data use” is the ability to transform data into information and then into action to improve all aspects of the learning organization.
Purpose: Participants will develop data leadership capacity and be able to help their schools with the SIP process. This would include utilizing MAP data, reading data, and other data to improve student learning. Participants will learn about the new Nebraska Department of Education accountability system AQUEST, and the statewide data dashboard which is under development.
