No Ratings
Data-Driven Decision-Making for Educators is all about empowering educators to be able to make informed decisions to improve student learning. The resources, activities, and assignments are designed for you to be able to analyze data, understand the different types of assessments and their proper use, run your own data reports, and communicate your findings with parents, educators, and policy makers. Part of the course focuses on standardized testing including their purpose, best use, and ways to get the most out of the data. This includes activities where you will use your school's data analysis application to run your own reports. This course includes how professional learning communities can work together to analyze data leading to curricular decisions and developing an action plan. You will also learn how data affects decision making at all levels including national, state, district, school, grade level, and individual students. This course is recommended for educators at all grade levels. You do not need access to students to complete the course. As with all of our courses, we take great pride in supporting our students and addressing their individual needs.

I feel so blessed to have had a job that I totally loved to do each and every day. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching elementary aged students for the past 38 years. I liked not only working with the children, but their families as well. I have made many lifelong connections with many of them. As a teacher, it is such a rewarding feeling to see my students “light come on” and see them understand the objective of the lesson. I was also very fond of working with other teachers and administrators and helping them understand and learn about technology. I always liked integrating technology into my lessons and helping others do the same. This really makes lessons come to life. All my FPU courses are very helpful for teachers to learn how to integrate technology into their classroom lessons. Working with my FPU students is great because they really want to learn and use what they have learned to make their classroom lessons so much better and more meaningful for their students.
