From the Kitchen Tables of Jenn and Paige: What We’re Watching, Week of March 1

  • Analyze and publish disaggregated data on which students were and weren’t tested (and for what reason). For example, if remote testing is possible, this data will provide the public with good information on access to broadband and devices.
  • Provide supports and guidance for educators and families to make sense of state assessment results in the context of classroom grades and local assessments; no single data point will provide the complete picture.
  • Develop and publish indicators that break down assessment results by type of instruction in addition to race, status, and other federally required groups.
  • Calculate and publish skip-year growth data to help districts unpack best practices in remote learning. There are widespread predictions about where students will land on proficiency measures but we really have no information about which schools are moving the needle on growth.
  • Ensure data linkages to all types of postsecondary credential-awarding institutions are robust enough to answer questions about outcomes and pathways as students progress in the coming years.
