  11. 11. THE EDUCATIONAL DATA MOVEMENT
  12. 12. The Educational Data Movement Understanding how the organizational model of education is similar to/different from other fields is key to understanding the educational data movement. 1980 – 1990 - 2000 - 2010 Finance Manufacturing Retail Health Care Education

  26. 26. Education is Unique • Culture and Human Capital (This is Changing) Historical problem • Legislative Context(The US Constitution) Each state can decide what it wants to do and there are over 17,000 school districts • Learning is Extremely Variable and Context-specific Much less understood than medicine • In The K-12 Space Education is Universal Everyone goes to school and schools must accept everyone
  27. 27. Education Data Has Issues • Human/social creation. Much of educational data is human generated with possibility for error/manipulation. • Measurement imprecision. Educational data can be imprecise, especially assessments of learning. • Comparability challenges. Comparisons across different areas of education is often impacted by context variation. • Fragmentation. The world of educational data is fragmented. There are incomplete/partially adopted technical standards.
  28. 28. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE SHIFTS IN THE FIELD
  29. 29. Dramatic Growth in Artifacts Assessment Technology Computing Technology Central “Mainframe“ ComputingTabulating Technology Cloud Technology Services Traditional fixed response, short task assessments Analog Paper-based (Textbooks, worksheets, and manual classroom tools) Classroom Technology Distributed Integrated Assessment Systems Digital Classroom Technology 1850s 1900 1910 1920 1930 1940 1950 1960 1970 1980 1990 2000 20101850s 1900 1910 1920 1930 1940 1950 1960 1970 1980 1990 2000 2010
  30. 30. Quantitative Shifts in Data • Test scores • Interim assessments • In class, formative assessments • Growth models • Student collaboration • Conversation records from classroom talk and online tools • Student work, including rich and multimodal demonstrations of knowledge and competency (essays, presentations, etc.) • Records of after-school experiences • Records of informal learning • Activity traces from digital media (in school, out of school, etc.) • Demographics • Student-teacher relationships (TSDL) • School improvement plans/goals • Classifications (ex: proficiency groups) • Video records of teaching • Annotated/evaluated records of teaching • Teacher evaluations • Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and personalized learning maps • Geospatial information (mapping and trends) • Attendance and rosters (more important than you think!) • FERPA/privacy blocks

  36. 36. Blended/Personalized Learning • Blend the best of face-to- face/online. • Incorporate interaction and dynamic material coupled with metadata and paradata to enable feedback. • Leverage embedded diagnostic assessments & interactive data visualization tools. • “Learning algorithms” match content/activities/ teaching approaches with learner’s needs. • Connect the in/out of school learning for complete picture of student’s development.
