11 Types of Data Needed to Create a Student Success Plan
Are you trying to complete a student success plan, but don’t know what data is needed? Don’t worry; we have you covered. Below, you will find a list of 11 types of data that can be included in your student success plan.
Standardized Test Results – provide comparative data on a state-wide or national level. Some assessments measure achievement, and others are diagnostic skills.
Informal Assessments – provide essential information that can have a diagnostic significance. These assessments can be teacher-made or commercially produced.
Report Cards – provide teacher rating of learner progress toward learning standards and an indicator of behavior.
Teacher/Parent/Learner Rating Scales – assist in the measurements of areas that are not easy to assess through tests, such as attitude, and interests.
Classroom Work Samples – are examples of learners’ work such as writing assignments, projects, homework, etc., can provide insight.
Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) – is a standardized procedure for teachers to track and record learner progress in a specific area, using brief and straightforward tests.
Screening Data – provides general information on learner skills and abilities. Its purpose is to identify potential “at-risk” learners.
Classroom Observation – provides essential information, not only on how the learner responds to instruction but also on the effectiveness of the appropriateness between teaching and learning.
Disciplinary Referrals – are another necessary means of determining how classroom learning is being affected by disciplinary conduct.
Attendance Data – is an important component of a comprehensive assessment. Data on both excused and unexcused absences and tardies are critical.
Functional Behavioral Assessments – observations and team analysis of learner behavior.
