Collaborative Inquiry as a Vehicle for Using Data

Page 2: Data slidedeck

Earl and Katz (2006) stress that data use should not be seen as separate from planning and routine decisions in schools. Rather, data should inform an ongoing process of analysis, insight, new learning and changes in practice. “Leaders who use data well believe that schools can make a difference. Their model of education change is focused on changing schools to help ensure better services and better learning for all students.”

ActivityIn groups, take your data and imagine you are about to create your School Improvement Plan for Student Achievement (SIPSA).

After a quick look through;• What areas may you focus on? • What focus may some of your PLC’s take? • What teachers would you invite to join in your PLC’s? • What class data would you gather or ask teachers to bring to

the PLC’s? • Is there any misleading or data that doesn’t sit quite right?

Perhaps an area that requires more digging?
