Purpose/Overview

The purpose of this session is to promote the use of the data-driven decision making process during strategic planning to improve student outcomes within the LEA.

Session Description

This session will focus on building district, school, and teacher-level leadership capacity to improve instruction by defining data literacy in education and outlining a process that will assist in decision making. The participants will use a cyclical process for data-driven decision-making to determine a focus area for instructional improvement that exists within their current situation. Using data from EVAAS and other sources of data, the participants will create an action plan to address gaps in student achievement. The participants will leave the session with resources that can be shared within their LEA or charter school as they implement the data-driven decision-making process.

Session Objectives
  • Apply understanding of the data-driven decision-making process
  • Evaluate how data can inform instructional practices
  • Create an action plan based on data analysis

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will be able to define data literacy and explain the four different types of data.
  • Participants will be able to identify a focus area for instructional improvement and its root causes
  • Participants will create an action plan with SMART goals to address a focus area for district, school, or classroom improvement.

Pre-work
  • Participants will complete the Data Literacy Online Module available in NC Education in order to give everyone the same foundational skills. https://center.ncsu.edu/nc/enrol/index.php?id=1481
  • Participants will bring LEA/school/classroom data pertaining to their needs.
