How does assessment data drive instruction and the literacy framework?
help with instruction in multiple ways. Pre-assessments help to begin the planning process for
instruction so that the educator can see the level at which students are performing at that specific
point in time. Throughout a unit then, the educator will continue to assess formally and
informally to decide how to continue planning. Sometimes the educator can move forward with
their previous plans and other times, students may require remediation to review the content that
was taught to close the gap in the student's level of performance.
What data collection methods are used to track and monitor student progress? What
technology tools are used to focus on continuous and effective data collection and analysis?
Data collection methods depend on the district, school, or program however there are a variety of
methods for tracking and monitoring student progress. Basic data can be collected pre, during,
and post by assessing a student's ability to perform a specific task. For example, say a student has
a goal that requires them to add 2 two-digit numbers with regrouping. The educator would begin
by getting a baseline data point by having the student perform a task that involves adding 2 two-
digit numbers with regrouping. Then based on the student's performance, the educator would be
able to see what they need to teach to the student to get them to reach their goal. The educator
would then continue to give the student the same task to perform and see if there is progress
