Getting some things ready for our district’s data retreat and was looking at the number of “red flag” scores (below our cut) from the reading assessments we use (NWEA MAP, AimsWeb, Fountas and Pinnell benchmarking, Developmental Spelling Analysis). When comparing Fall to Spring scores, I love it when the right numbers go up and the other numbers go down. Plus, I love spreadsheets, formulas, and charts. 🙂
Our last day of school was Tuesday, and our data retreat is just two days later. It would have been nice to have a couple days off before jumping into more work, but I do feel that it is the right move to immediately look at student learning data to document the progress we made. Felt like we had a very good year, but it has been satisfying to prove it.
