Data Informed Instruction: How to Assess for YOU
Diane Houle, District Account Executive, Renaissance Learning

Level: Beginner
Grades: All

Repeated: W1-12, Th4-12
Why do we have a gag reflex when it comes to discussing testing? I believe the reason is that standardized, normalized testing has traditionally been done for someone else. Whether it is accountability to the state, the district or someone else, it seems we are being asked to validate our work through testing. By using tools within educational software we have a tremendous amount of actionable data to help inform our own instruction to maximize our students' growth through a Cycle of Data Informed Instruction. I will share with you how my school did just that and why this testing is for YOU and your STUDENTS. Because an assessment is only valuable if you act upon the data.
