Sample Response

How do the sources of data represented in this graphic relate to the data sources you currently use in your classroom?

All of the data sources listed are used in my classroom to some degree. District benchmarks are completed quarterly. Theme/unit tests from the adopted instructional materials and student work is used for weekly and daily data monitoring of student learning.

Which of the multiple levels of assessment data are available to you to guide classroom instruction?

The data available to guide my classroom instruction is mostly the information I get from the instructional materials assessments and from students' daily and weekly work. Benchmark data is available as well, but the data is not as timely for guiding instruction as the daily and weekly information I get about student learning. Annual statewide testing data is available only after students have moved on to the next grade so it is not used as much for guiding classroom instruction.
