Data for Teachers

What data will we collect?

Each day, teachers will answer key questions about their writing instruction to generate more than 75 data points. By asking a series of questions on our survey, which is designed to be adaptive, we will be able to gather an enormous amount of data each day without taking more than 5 minutes of a teacher's time.

Examples of the questions we ask, and associated answer choices, are below:

Which writing skill(s) did students work on during this lesson?
Who is the primary intended audience for the final product resulting from the writing students did during this lesson?
Indicate how many minutes students spent on each skill during this lesson.
Identify the primary reason(s) you included this writing skill in your lesson.
Did students write about content they are studying (e.g., a novel, a time period in history, a science concept)?
Which of the following instructional strategies did you use to teach this writing skill?
What was the primary purpose of the writing students did during this lesson?
Will or did students receive any feedback on the writing during this lesson?
Did students do this writing on paper or on a computer?
What method(s) did you use to assess student writing during this lesson?

How will we reflect teachers' data back to them?

Teachers will have a personalized data dashboard that aggregates and summarizes their daily writing instructional practices from across the year. This private dashboard will allow teachers to reflect on their own instructional practices.

In the example dashboard above, the teacher can see which skills they have spent the most time on, as well as how the amount of time devoted to writing instruction has varied over time.
