Putting Faces on the Data: What Great Leaders Do!
Sharratt, Lyn; Fullan, Michael
Students are people--not data. Assessment data can bury you or give you focused information on how to reach every student. "Putting Faces on the Data" shows how to develop a common language for sharing all students' progress with all teachers and leaders and how to use ongoing assessment to inform instruction. Based on worldwide research from more than 500 educators, this book presents solutions organized by: (1) Assessment; (2) Instruction; (3) Leadership; and (4) Ownership. The many benefits of personalizing data include increased student engagement and a positive impact on school culture. This reader-friendly guide helps you set goals, adjust lessons, identify students' strengths and weaknesses, and implement interventions. Included is a self-assessment framework for implementing improvement at the district and state levels. By focusing on connecting all the dots between students and data, you can accomplish the ultimate goal of helping them learn. [Foreword by Sir Michael Barber. This book is co-published with OPC.]
