Data use promotes better and more equitable outcomes, especially when educators start from the premise that all students can succeed and that the purpose of analyzing data is to find ways to help them do so. However, data-driven decision making can also perpetuate inequities and bias, especially when educators use data in ways that confirm assumptions about students or their families, disregard students’ cultural identities, or reinforce harmful tracking practices. Using Multiple Measures and your assessments, participants will learn how to interpret students' data and understand the type of coaching, professional development, and other resources that must be provided to challenge their assumptions about specific student populations with a goal to improve instruction for all, not to blame students or talk about their apparent deficits.
