Week 5 Discussion 2: Data Management
In chapter nine, Lopez suggests that for data-driven decisions to be made, school leaders must make data easily accessible as well as openly shared. Consider this as you respond to the discussion.
Lopez was just mentioned. You will be referencing his work (and perhaps the work of others). Therefore, remember to include references and the matching in-text citations. Check the Course Materials in the Modules area, the AWC, or google Purdue OWL for guidance.
Initial Post: Address each of the discussion points beginning with a description of any classroom and/or assessment experience you may have. If you do not have direct classroom experience, you may respond to these questions based on your own understanding of what occurs in your own children’s school, or a professional or volunteer position you’ve held outside of a school setting.
Question/Answer Formate (please follow)
Assessment experience you may have. If you do not have assessment experience, please explain the basis for your response (children’s school, professional, or volunteer experience).
