The product of assessments and how schools and institutions use that data is just as important as choosing the right assessments in the first place. This foundational course provides a set of beliefs or guidelines for consideration that drive quality assessment systems as they relate to the Assessment Literacy Standards. You will become familiar with eight considerations for building a data culture, and how to strategically determine what data to collect for what uses, and how to best communicate data results to the appropriate users.
In this course, you will:
- Recognize how guidelines or beliefs that a system of assessment data usage is built on must support all learners,
- Describe the components, processes, and systems that contribute to a strong data culture,
- Understand how to use data appropriately at all levels to improve student learning and strengthen educational systems, and
- Use video demonstrations to clarify concepts surrounding assessment data usage.
