Teachers Share Data

WHEN TEACHERS SHARE DATA — MEANINGFUL INFORMATION — ON STUDENTS’ LEARNING IT:

  • Adds to their understanding of students
  • Shows the impact of their teaching, to share publicly
  • Helps justify their teaching strategies, explaining not only what takes place in the classroom, but how it makes a difference for kids.

STEPS TO GET THIS GOING:

  • Consider information that would help with your teaching, and that would inform others about its power. Check out existing research on your question.
  • Plan a research strategy that is doable, and that will give you the sort of useful information that you need.
  • Document evidence and observations you gather, and save evidence such as student papers.
  • Share results with other teachers and administrators as well as with parents and the wider community.
  • Use the information to help support specific advocacy or more general reporting on your work.
