Practitioner Data Use in Schools: Workshop Toolkit

By Candice Bocala, Susan Henry, Susan Mundry, Claire Morgan


The Practitioner Data Use in Schools: Workshop Toolkit is intended for use by district leaders, school officials, teacher leaders, and coaches who want to conduct workshops on data inquiry and data use at the school level with school-based educators.

Written by researchers at Learning Innovations at WestEd, this kit contains a facilitator guide that provides materials to engage educators in using data for inquiry and instructional planning, including: 

  • A step-by-step agenda for a full-day professional development session (or a series of shorter sessions)
  • Guiding ideas to scaffold participant learning
  • Ideas for activities
  • Suggestions for ways to facilitate the workshop and customize it for specific school and district contexts

The kit also includes workshop handouts that feature tools, protocols, and resources for each step of the data inquiry cycle.

An accompanying slide deck can be downloaded at the Tools & Resources section of the REL Northeast & Islands website.
