EDUU609 Appropriate Use of data

  1. 1. Exploring Data Interpreter’s Agenda JaNae Burger Data Assessment Presentation Brandman University EDUU609 Not everything that counts can be counted… and not everything that can be counted counts ~Albert Einstein~ (Brandman, 2014)
  2. 2. Useful piece of data discovered… County list of school’s 3-Year average academic performance index score. (CDOE, 2013)
  3. 3. Useful Information Continued… VALUE WHAT: Student population, data, score test scores, # of EL students and students receiving services WHY: Selecting the best schools for my children. Learning more about possible places of employment, insight on focus/performance of individual schools (CDOE, 2013)
  4. 4. Possible Misinterpreted Data Example • Independent Statewide Evaluation of ASES and 21st CCLC After School Programs • Program Satisfaction based on Academics • Difficult to gage student aspirations • First-come, first serve program everyday. • Determined Success by looking at Standardized tests scores (CDEA, 2012)
  5. 5. Possible Misinterpretations Continued • Parent Involvement- based on parent survey • The report indicated negative effects on students Math ELA but all surveys and observations were very positive (CDEA, 2012)
  6. 6. EDUU 609 Content Connections • Standardized tests & Math don’t really indicate student’s math abilities (McNeil, 2005, pg 215) • Programs were “Coverage” type programs- typically less effective (Wiggins & McTighe, 2005, page 340) • Programs were designed around problems not exercise (Wiggins & McTighe, 2005, page 155) • Students were enrolled by teacher or parent- no desire to learn (Wiggins & McTighe, 2005, page 144)
