Doing What Works - Goal Translate research-based practices into examples and practical tools that support and improve classroom instruction
Overview of Doing What Works Builds a bridge from research to action Free resource from the U.S. Department of Education Developed by WestEd, AIR, & RMC Starts with IES research reviews

Resources For Each Practice: Key concepts Research Base Expert interviews Featured Schools Media products: Audio and Video interviews, Classroom footage, Slideshows Sample Materials Ideas for action Tools and templates
Using Data to Inform Classroom Level and Instructional Decisions Recommendation 1: –Make data part of an ongoing cycle of instructional improvement Recommendation 2: –Teach students to examine their own data and set learning goals.
Cycle of Instructional Inquiry What data do we currently collect and can use to implement the cycle of inquiry?
Cycle of Instructional Improvement – What do you see in these data? Dr. Elizabeth City What do you see in these data?
Teacher Collaboration Time What do you notice that makes this session productive?
Teacher Collaboration Time
Student Use of Data Can you identify one strategy you have used to support students in using their own data?
Go Back and Reflect
Organizational and Technological Conditions that Support Data Use Recommendation 3: –Establish a clear vision for schoolwide data use Recommendation 4: –Provide supports that foster a data-driven culture within the school Recommendation 5: –Develop and maintain a districtwide data system
Establish a Clear Vision for Schoolwide Data Use Do you have a schoolwide vision for data use? Earning Trust
Provide Supports that Foster a Data-Driven Culture What supports do you need? Visualizing Data in the Progress Pad
District Supports for Data Use
Closing What changes do we need to make to use our data more effectively and more consistently?
