This week’s newsletter focuses on the use of data in the classroom to inform teaching and learning.
- What do you do when the data isn’t making any sense? Our instructional leadership team and I encountered this challenge in this post.
- One literacy assessment mentioned in the post is Fountas & Pinnell. This reference reminds me of an important blog post the two educators wrote, titled A Level is a Teacher’s Tool, NOT a Child’s Label.
- For a more authentic approach to evaluating student writing schoolwide, check out the Educational Leadership article Looking at Student Work for a practical assessment process. (ASCD membership required.)
