Data-Driven Decision Making, T&L 2900

In this course, educators learn how to make data-driven decisions using the LtoJr® classroom data system to inform their instructional practice, resulting in higher student academic achievement in less time. How many teachers strive to reach a bell curve by the end of a term? While this may be common practice, teachers will learn that the bell curve actually represents a failure to teach and a failure to learn. By capturing and analyzing student data in the form of graphs, charts, and diagrams, educators learn to adapt and focus their instructional strategies to achieve greater student academic achievement, while reducing paperwork. Tracking data also proves to be a positive classroom management tool allowing teachers to teach, students to learn, and the class to work together as a team. Jenkins presents lively graphic examples in a workshop setting, modeling for online participants the processes of charting and analyzing data.
