Data-Based Curricular Leadership
Many school leaders share a common frustration: How to transform mountains of data on student achievement into an action plan that will improve instruction and increase student learning. Educational leaders are called on to promote the success of every student by advocating, nurturing, and sustaining an instructional program conducive to student learning and staff professional growth. In this learning candidates engage in collaborative inquiry emphasizing the use of data based inquiry cycles. Practicums require candidates to work with diverse faculty groups to examine data, make appropriate inferences, and link that data to plans for meaningful action. Performance assessments of competency include reflections on and evaluation of their facilitation of the data inquiry process and collaboratively developing an action plan resulting from data based inquiry. This learning strand provides experiences designed to move candidates towards competency in Collecting and analyzing data, Developing assessment systems to monitor student progress, Evaluating the impact of instructional programs, and Growing and developing professionally.
