Student and Teacher Data Conversations  |  8:30 - 10:00 am

If we’re not talking about it, it isn’t really happening.  We all know there’s more to the assessment process than writing objectives on the board and giving back grades.  In this session we’ll address ways of changing the focus in classrooms from scores and grades to real learning, and how to engage students – and ourselves – with data that make a difference.

What Data? When?  |  1:00 - 2:30 pm

Are you inundated with data?  Is it dumped on you at certain points of the school year with an expectation that you make magic?  The truth is that teachers swim in all kinds of relevant, useful data every day.  In this session we’ll examine a framework of four types of data that are critical for seeing and reaching learners, and reframe which data you need when.  During this session the presenter will share samples from her own classroom work to inspire your thinking.

From Questions to Data to Grades  |  2:45 - 4:15 pm

Does it sometimes seem like the words in this title usually follow a different order?  Well, they should not, and this session will show you why.  Get ready for an interactive journey to effective practice.  By the end of this session you will be able to ask the important questions you need answered to be more effective, identify all four types of data in order to make effective instructional decisions, explain the difference between assessment and grading, and revise your current grading practices to make them more effective.
