1 Department of Mathematics and Science Millard E. Lightburn, Ph.D. District Science Supervisor Mary Tweedy and Keisha Kidd Curriculum Support Specialists 1 DATA ANALYSIS GRADE 4 SCIENCE SUMMER SYMPOSIUM

2 Data can… provide feedback on the past and provide a basis to begin planning for the future 2 What Kind of Information can Data Provide us? Department of Mathematics and Science

3 3 IMPORTANCE OF DATA Facilitate a clear understanding of the gaps between where the school or class is and where it wants to be. Show if school or class goals and objectives are being accomplished. Predict and prevent failures. Predict and ensure successes. Establish foundation for Continuous School Improvement/SIP. Data drives instruction, and professional development. Department of Mathematics and Science
