“Don’t be buffaloed by experts and elites. Experts often possess more data than judgment.” – Colin Powell
In chapter nine, Lopez suggests that for data-driven decisions to be made, school leaders must make data easily accessible as well as openly shared. Consider this as you respond to the discussion.
Initial Post: Address each of the discussion points beginning with a description of any classroom and/or assessment experience you may have. If you do not have direct classroom experience, you may respond to these questions based on your own understanding of what occurs in your own children’s school, or a professional or volunteer position you’ve held outside of a school setting.
What are the common reasons why staff members keep their data private from each other? In what ways might you break down these barriers?
For those with classroom and assessment experience, describe how easily accessible, openly shared, and deliberately arranged are your data today?
For those without such experience, discuss the importance of the 3 pillars of data management and how you intend to apply this to your anticipated practice.
What will you do to make your system for data management exceptional?
