Collect Meaningful Data on Student Progress

  • Ongoing
  • Online Professional Development Activity

The purpose of collecting data is to provide objective evidence of a program’s effectiveness and to guide instructional decisions. Educators can ensure that they provide meaningful instruction by collecting useful data on students’ progress and then use the data to make instructional decisions. In other words, with meaningful data, educators can adjust their instruction in response to students’ performance.
