```“Teachers are thus free to
provide students with whatever
tools and knowledge their
professional judgment and
experience identify as most
helpful for meeting the goals set
out in the Standards.”

Survey the region for current AIS teacher roles and
best ways we can support each other
Examine best practices for questioning and
cooperative learning
Determining conceptual and fluency weaknesses
in our students (through computer and worksheet
analyses)
Identify strategies that can help strengthen
common weak areas
Create instructional materials that will review/reteach the previous learning of common weak
areas
Survey
 How
is AIS handled in your building?
 How
often do you meet with your students
 How
many students do you have?
 How
would math AIS be made more
effective?

Learning Objectives
 Define Data Driven Instruction
As we work and learn together today…
 Breaks
 Bathrooms
 Lunch
 Cell phones
 Procedures
 Think…
 Coming back together
EFFECTIVE TEACHING=
STUDENT LEARNING
 What is something you
recently learned?
 What helped you learn this
new skill/content?
Common Practices Across Countries
 Assessments are part of a tightly integrated system of
standards, curriculum, instruction, assessment, and teacher
development at the state or national level.
 Assessments include evidence of actual student performance
on challenging tasks that evaluate a wide range of applied
skills.
 Teachers are integrally involved in the development and
scoring of assessments (as are college faculty).
 Assessments are used to inform course grades and provide
information to colleges and employers, rather than to
determine punishments or sanctions.
 Assessments are designed to continuously improve teaching
and learning.
Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Teaching and Teacher Education, Stanford University
Why Data Driven Instruction?
 Processes involved can help teachers align content to
standards.
 Information can help teachers identify best
instructional strategies.
 Information can help teachers determine areas for
instructional emphasis.
 Proven to improve student performance!

Step 1: Commit to Using Data



Without a district wide
commitment, little district-wide
improvement will result!
Create a Data Driven DecisionMaking Culture
Get some district training!

Keys to Effective Diagnostic
Assessments
•
•
•
Assess for Mastery and Retention
Frequent and Fast Data that is Useful
•
Rethink the way you teach
•
If your content is not aligned you are
•
Know the relative weight of the standards
being taught and tested.
Build or Buy? Two reasons to Build*
Alignment
“Aligned to your standards”… and what else?
Outsource technical competencies that are not central to your
mission.
Keep in-house what’s central to your work so you can develop
Do you really want to outsource deep knowledge about the
skills and content your students need to master…and can you
afford it?
Make the Data Useful
Make the Data Useful
Needs a day of tutoring
Needs a tutor every day
Make the Data Useful
Re-Teach!
Replicate!
Teaching Cycle
How do you collect real time data?
 Frequent quizzes
 Homework
 Student Feedback systems.

 Outside systems
 Study Island and many others…
 Internal Systems

Moodle…OATs, OGTs
