Data Walls6:21:00 AM
This year was a first of many for me...first year in building, first year as Math teacher, first year as tested subject, and first time having to truly look at data. Here are a few ways I displayed in my classroom.
By class we tracked how many out of 5 they got right. The students also had a data sheet in their notebook as well. Even though the lines are not completely linear the trend is still up. The line above the goal line was my pre-algebra.
Acuity testing A, B and C
Students take a predictor tests to see where they would fall if they took the map test right at the time of the Acuity test given. The acuity is given three times. I tracked growth by class on a bar graph of their MPI scores.
Instead of teaching students about scatter plot we used one to determine if turning in homework effects your grade, when 70% of the class grade is tests or quizzes. The trend went up as more homework was turned in the grades went up.
