Using Assessments, Part 1: Collecting Data and Selecting Strategies
HLP Webinar Series – HLP #6, Use student assessment data
The first letter in DBI is also the first thing you need—Data. Collecting data using reliable, valid assessments allows you to understand where students are and where they need to go. Once you have established a student’s strengths and needs, you can use this data to set goals, plan instruction, and implement individualized strategies.
After this webinar, you’ll be able to answer these questions:
- What sort of data is important to collect, and how do you collect it?
- What does the data tell you about potential supports or barriers to students’ achievement?
- What goals should you set for students based on their present levels of performance?
- How do you determine a goal that’s reasonable, but ambitious?
