Increasingly, districts achieving significant gains in student performance cite longitudinal data systems — systems that gather and track student data over time — as their key to success. For these districts, easy access to accurate, real-time, frequently gathered data enables them to inform collaborative planning, differentiate instruction and drive improvement.
At this webinar, you’ll hear first-hand from district leaders and education technology innovators from Albemarle County Public Schools and Wichita Public Schools, how they are using data systems to:
|Provide their professional learning communities with formative and summative assessment data to inform differentiated instructional planning|
|Align standards-based curriculum, instruction and assessment programs to bolster continuous improvement initiatives|
|Analyze key data and performance indicators to make real-time shifts in pacing, intervention and enrichment|
|Provide classroom teachers with protocols to guide their use of data as an essential element in instructional practice|
You’ll also get critical and actionable insights from attorney and ARRA expert, David DeSchryver, on how Title I and Title IID dollars can be tapped right now to acquire the technology, tools and training to implement a longitudinal data system in your district
