Uses and abuses of data in professional development

 click to join the discussion

Many argue that professional development should be data driven, but what kind of data is most useful? Data can be derived from student scores on state assessments, from tests of teacher competence accountability, or from examination of studentsí work. This panel discusses effective uses of data as well as potentially harmful uses of data in professional development. Perspectives are provided by Nancy Love, who has recently authored "Using Data/ Getting Results," as well as by two lead evaluators of the LSCs, Mark Jeness and Mike Howard. Please join us in this discussion.
