Data is not a Four Letter Word

Led by: Mia Laudato and Robin Williams 

We’re all educators, and we want to know how our students are doing and what we can do to help them.

How can we easily and effectively pull together the information in order to guide us in selecting the appropriate interventions for each student and then inform us how well those interventions are working?

In a preview of their FETC sesson, Mia and Robin will be leading us in discussing the following questions:

  • What information do we want to know about our students?
  • What are some of the ways we can collect and analyze that information?
  • What are some examples?
  • How do we get started?
