  • Are you a smart consumer of data? | Teaching Matters
    together So the challenge becomes how to take diverse products from many different aisles and put them in the same shopping cart As with any complex problem sometimes simpler is better And there are some simple strategies for schools to use when incorporating student level data in their instructional decision making Just follow the same strategies you use when buying groceries Make a List Budget Grow Organic Shop Local First make a list of all the assessments and data sources that your school has and what the purpose of each of them is This means all sources from the high stakes tests all the way down to the classroom assessments goal setting databases and those parent and teacher surveys that are sent out Most schools will find a lot of overlap and perhaps unnecessary data sources Prioritize them make some difficult decisions about where you want to spend your effort everything on this list costs time effort and adds to a complex situation It s okay to start simple Next you want to grow organic Gathering data sources creating common assessments norming on how to score and then using that data to inform instruction is not something a school can do all at once With all good change practice it is best to grow from the bottom up and support from the top down Allow those subject areas or grade levels that are ready to self select give them the time to meet throughout the year to work out the kinks and set up the monitoring and support to ensure they are supported Most importantly don t give up when things aren t working smoothly Organic produce tends to have more blemishes but it is ultimately better for your long term health Finally shop for your technology solution locally Because

  • A Conversation with Linda Darling-Hammond | Teaching Matters
    those kinds of expectations for students mean that students are continuously being asked to think to analyze to synthesize to communicate to evaluate to do those things that they will have to do in college in the world outside of school to persevere at big task to frame and solve problems Guastaferro I agree that good assessment is the lynch pin to developing students higher order skills but what about accountability Working in New York City schools we see both the negative and positive effects of the accountability system But prior to accountability there was not a systemic way to look at performance and there were areas of true neglect no one really looking under the hood How do you strike that right balance Darling Hammond Used well assessments can be apart of a very powerful instructional improvement system and an accountability system where the goal is to be transparent about what kind of outcomes we are getting The tests have to be worth teaching to the outcomes have to be the right ones the process has to engage teachers in ways that makes them smarter about their teaching and more capable of being responsive to students In addition there s a form of accountability that we have not been investing adequately in this country which is professional accountability That is what happens in Finland Singapore Canada and many other countries With attention to professional accountability everyone who wants to enter teaching is both highly selected and highly supported Teacher education is high quality and free to candidates and they have put a lot of attention into designing high quality preparation because they think that it is a good investment We ve been trying to put all of our eggs only in a testing with rewards and sanctions basket And we ve gotten as far as you could get with that model on accountability We need to make the investments in professional knowledge and skills Then we need to allow the assessment system to be a good measure of learning in which teachers could actually be engaged as part of the process of evaluating the assessments scoring them and thereby becoming better teachers Guastaferro Do you think our accountability focus comes from the fact that this country has so much inequity in the education we offer our students We ve seen so much failure in our schools and are there examples where they have the kind of a real diversity in income levels like the extremes that we re see in the United States Darling Hammond There are a lot of countries where almost all of the kids are poor In Singapore 80 of the kids live in public housing and yet it is one of the highest achieving nations in the world But no kid is homeless Guastaferro Yes a culture of poverty vs economic poverty Darling Hammond No child is without health care No child is without food We have one of the highest effective rates of poverty
