Gathering data and using it to inform instruction is a requirement for many schools, yet educators are not necessarily formally trained in how to do it. This book helps bridge the gap between classroom practice and the principles of educational psychology. Teachers will find cutting-edge advances in research and theory on human learning and teaching in an easily understood and transferable format. The text's integrated model shows teachers, school leaders, and district administrators how to establish a data culture and transform quantitative and qualitative data into actionable knowledge based on: Assessment Statistics Instructional and differentiated psychology Classroom management Data-driven decision making and data literacy skills are at the intersection of all of these areas, and the authors link them to show how to establish a vision and improve student learning. Included are vignettes that demonstrate the concepts in practice and tips for using technology to assist in the process.
