Stop, Look, Listen: Data in a Day. Listening to Student Voices Self-Study Toolkit. [Videotape].
Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.; Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
This 18-minute VHS videotape introduces Data in a Day (DD), a tool that brings parents, teachers, and students together as researchers to collect and analyze data about their school. It shows scenes of DD being used in diverse school settings (elementary, secondary, dual-language, rural, urban, and suburban) as a way for a broad segment of the school community to learn together about how well the school is achieving its goals. Beginning with a set of questions to explore, students, teachers, and parents observe in classrooms and other settings to collect data, which they analyze and present to the larger school community. DD provides the school with an opportunity to publicly affirm its accomplishments as well as identify areas that need improvement. This videotape is designed to be used with other materials in the self-study toolkit. DD is one of four processes featured in the toolkit. (SM)
