This online course, Data-Driven Decision-Making for Teachers, can help you use different data analysis strategies, evaluate state and local benchmarks, develop action plans and communicate information about a student's progress with parents. Using the technology of today's student data programs, teachers have access to a wealth of information. Effective data-driven decision making is a must in today's standards-based curriculum because teachers need to focus on the curriculum areas where their students are struggling. This course will show you how to find both the weaknesses and the strengths of your students and explore the concepts behind the use of data to develop instructional strategies and move towards taking a leadership role on your campus. This course is recommended for all teachers that teach in grades K-12 and want to improve instruction in their classroom. Course resources include sample exam reports. Although helpful, having your own report generating tool is not a requirement.
