1 End User Training Session Tennessee Early Warning Data System Marshall County Schools May 2013
2 End User Training Agenda Early Warning Data System Goals and Pilot Overview Key Training Objectives Guided Exercises Independent Time Wrap-up Discussion
3 Early Warning Data System Project Background Current Problem: Lots of educational data scattered across multiple systems at the school, district, and state level Educators do not have easy access to a comprehensive picture of student holistic data Proposed Solution: Early Warning Data System consolidates and presents student performance data through an intuitive dashboard

5 Nationwide Best Practices Audit Academic Research Focus Groups with 3,000 Educators Initial dashboards based on national education research and review of best practices across the country Received and incorporated feedback on dashboard from 3,000 educators Enhancements to dashboards will be based on Tennessee stakeholder feedback Dashboards are Grounded in Best Practices and Vetted by Educators
7 Goals for Dashboard Pilot Identify and resolve data anomalies at the student, campus, and district level Gather feedback on educator needs for on-going dashboard development Incorporate dashboard use into current data-driven best practices Refine training approach for future roll-outs Generate enthusiasm for the dashboards Key Considerations for Dashboard Pilot Users The dashboards are a work-in-process – your feedback is vital to continuous improvement Relevance of the dashboard metrics depends on the timeliness and accuracy of available data Some data is not currently available – we are planning to load state assessment data over the summer
