Putting FACES on the Data: What Great Leaders Do! / Edition 1

Build the bridge from data collection to improved instruction

Students are people—not data. How can you use assessment data to focus on reaching every student? This book shows how to develop a common language for sharing all students’ progress with all teachers and leaders, and how to use ongoing assessment to inform instruction. Based on worldwide research of more than 500 educators, the book presents solutions organized by:

  • Assessment
  • Instruction
  • Leadership
  • Ownership

The many benefits of personalizing data include increased student engagement and a positive impact on school culture. This reader-friendly guide helps you set goals, adjust lessons, identify students’ strengths and weaknesses, and implement interventions.
