PLC Data Teams
Essential Questions How does a PLC work as a data team to organize data from common assessments? How does a PLC Data Team analyze data? How will the team use assessment data to improve student outcomes?
Effective and Efficient Teams Establish and maintain fidelity to shared norms. Self-monitor adherence to norms Establish a clearly stated purpose Stay focused on task Follow a defined structure
We Know Teams Are Effective When… 1. Their response is based on INTERVENTION rather than remediation. 2. Their response is SYSTEMATIC. 3. Their response is TIMELY. Richard & Rebecca Dufour, Whatever It Takes; How Professional Learning Communities Respond When Kids Dont Learn
Step 1 Was the assessment high quality? –Was the type of assessment a good match for the learning target? –Were the questions good quality? –Were enough questions included to provide an adequate sampling? –Were the questions unbiased? Step 2 Gather classroom data, assemble it on a master grid and duplicate for team review of results. Be sure to attach a copy to this reflection form. Step 3 Briefly describe the unit assessment and learning targets: Common Assessment Reflections
Step 4 Create a graphic representation of the data Step 5 Identify areas for team discussion: As a team, which targets from the assessment require more attention? As a team, which students did not master which targets? As a team, which classrooms require additional support? As an individual teacher, which area was my lowest and how can I improve in that area. Step 6 Create and explain a team plan of action to address the needs of students whove not mastered the required targets
Activity As a team, review the following results: Seventh Grade Common AssessmentIntegers Team Results Classroom Ds Results by Student Classroom Ds Results by Student and Target Answer the Common Assessment Reflection Questions as a team.
Data Team Activity Discussion As a team, which targets from the assessment require more attention? As a team, which students did not master which targets? As a team, which classrooms require additional support? As an individual teacher, which area was my lowest, and how can I improve in that area? What will be our teams plan of action to address the results?
Post Data Graphs Make simple graphs to share results: Display in halls Display in classrooms Include in newsletters Data Walls Tell your story
Sample Data Walls Topic for professional conversations Located in prominent places
Displaying Data Simple bar graphs Can be student generated
Month-to-Month Focus Updated frequently Data from various sources
Month-to-Month Comparisons These data walls are meaningful to the students as they track their achievement
Desired Outcomes of Data Teams Focus on more than test scores and include factors that are within the control of teachers Provide focus and eliminate the clutter Be able to answer Which students are not meeting standards in _______? Establish a plan to do something about it.
