Multi-Dimensional Education: A Common Sense Approach to Data-Driven Thinking
Corrigan, Michael W.; Grove, Doug; Vincent, Philip F.
Schools aren't one dimensional. Your decision making shouldn't be either. If you want to look beyond student test scores to identify the specific areas that need improvement in your school, you will find practical tools for assessing multiple areas with confidence here. The authors detail a step-by-step framework for identifying, collecting, analyzing, and using data as a basis for driving school improvement in the right direction. Based on more than 40 years of research, this seven-dimensional model will help enhance your school's curriculum, community, climate, and character by applying data to these key processes: (1) Assessing student achievement; (2) Modifying instruction based on data findings; (3) Improving school performance; and (4) Retaining effective teachers. The result is a holistic and accurate instrument for making the changes needed to improve student learning. Included are assessment tools, process charts, graphic organizers, rubrics, tables, numerous examples, and background research. An index is included.
