In this highly interactive, advanced course for teachers, participants learn how to use student growth data to inform instructional decisions. Through hands-on group activities, teams work collaboratively through simulation data to discuss instructional practices, strategies for student support, departmental collaboration, and personal professional growth. To maximize learning outcomes, EVAAS Educator Support Specialists highly recommend that teams of teachers attend together to engage in this course as a shared experience.
Participants learn the following skills:
• To read and interpret the EVAAS reports most useful for teachers
• To identify patterns in student growth and use these trends to inform instructional decisions
• To use teacher and student data together to maximize teacher strengths and capitalize on instructional planning
• To consider student growth data along with other sources of data, such as grade books and lesson plans, to reflect on and improve classroom instruction
• To analyze multiple reports simultaneously to inform practice within and across teaching teams
Intended Audience: Teachers and those who directly support teachers
