Using Assessment Data in the Reading Workshop
About the Course
You have collected all this data. Now what? With the help of Jennifer Serravallo, we will explore ways to use data to guide reading instruction and develop plans to help get students to where they need to be. “Trust The Literacy Educator’s Playbook to discover that assessment isn’t about numbers and letters. It’s about relying on a procedure that helps you know—really know—your students, so you can teach them with confidence and make a difference.” If you want to learn about ways to drop the colors associated with your students’ abilities, reading levels that define students, numbers and letters that identify their lack of skills, then this is the perfect class for you! We will explore topics about ways to collect data, analyze data, synthesize data from all the assessments, develop plans to help students, and follow-up methods to progress monitor.
