Educators Use Student Performance Data to Plan, Implement, and Evaluate
Lujan, James
Journal of Staff Development, v31 n2 p38-39, 43 Apr 2010
Having data about student academic performance motivates school leaders to perform better as educators, and tells them where they need to concentrate their efforts to improve. As principal of Ernie Pyle Middle School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, this author finds that the constant use of relevant data helps him stay focused on his instructional leadership responsibilities. He shares the information with his "data team," which includes teachers, parents, and students. Once the data are studied and analyzed, an action plan is created to implement the next steps necessary to improve the academic progress of very student in every grade level in any specific area. These actions plans are connected to every teacher's professional development plan. He believes there is an urgency to educate instructional leaders about quantitative and qualitative analysis of school data. However, instructional leaders must instill that sense of data accountability within all stakeholders involved in improving student learning.
