The Data Teams workshop is designed for administrators and teacher leaders who want to become a site-level Data Team to support assessment literacy at their school site. The Data Teams training is based on the Data-Driven Decision-Making protocol from Doug Reeves and the Center for Performance Assessment. Participants will learn and practice a simple yet powerful data protocol and process to implement data teams at the school and classroom levels. Classroom teachers, serving as data team leaders, will understand their role to create agendas, monitor time, listen, and help move the team through the assessment data protocol as it relates to their grade level or department. Site administrators will understand the importance of meeting with the data team leaders to collect and analyze student achievement data and to discuss strategies to share this information school wide. Participants will learn the importance of safety in data dialogue, and some strategies to create that safe environment.
During this interactive seminar, participants will:
- Learn what constitutes a data team.
- Learn the steps in the collaborative data team process, and practice a hands-on data protocol to analyze classroom data. Participants will determine areas of students’ stength and weakness, and identify best instructional practices and performance indicators.
- Formulate how to find time for data team meetings during contract hours.
- Understand how to select data team leaders.
- Realize the responsibilities of data team leaders.
- Study the structure of a data team meeting.
- Understand the variables that provide a safe environment for data dialogue.
- Practice facilitation skills.
