Data doesn't have to be scary!

As teachers, we're used to collecting evidence of our students' learning, but it should be used for so much more.  Using assessments strategically saves you time and helps students learn more.  Plan ahead, assess a variety of ways, and be truly open to what the data tells you.  Feel free to review some of my content... or give me a shout.​
