Data Series

Participants previously identified students’ strengths and what?! Continuing to cover too much content and administering more tests will not lead to different outcomes. Learn how to maximize the use of PSAT and SAT data and resources to impact achievement one unit, one lesson and one student at a time specifically in ELA or math.  During this workshop, teachers explore the College Board Portal to determine which reports provide the most actionable data; revisit their PSAT/SAT strengths and weaknesses to identify and document trends to determine what students are learning within local curriculum and what further need to be addressed. Participants also engage in collaborative inquiry to identify where specific academic skills are taught within their curriculum, identify areas of focus utilizing the College Board’s Skills Insight Report and apply a PLC protocol to target instruction.

Participants will...

  • Examine either the 8-12 ELA or math curriculum and College Board Academic Skills in order to identify overlaps and gaps
  • Analyze the Skills Insight Report to identify academic skills and suggestions for improvement to target within a specific unit of study. 
  • Discuss strategies for identifying students to target intervention using the College Board’s Instructional Planning Report.
