Data driven instruction is a hot topic in education right now. Sometimes it seems like it is more important to give a bunch of assessments and have a bunch of graphs than it is to teach students! But the real point behind this push is to help the teacher more efficiently measure and promote student learning. If we keep that in mind as we look at data everything make more sense.
In the video below, I highlight some of my favorite reports in SMART Response. These enable teachers to give simple assessments and quickly gather information to help the student learning process. This way teachers are actually using the assessments formatively to shape their instruction to meet the needs of their students.
