Assignment Part 1
1. Part 1: In this first part of the assignment, from the role of the principal at a school, explore, analyze, and describe the school setting and the types of data available for your analysis, and write a narrative of the specific data analysis in which you will engage. Using an appropriate technology tool (e.g. Excel, SPSS), analyze data on your schools’ curriculum, including students’ learning scores for standardized and diagnostic tests, and any other appropriate data available. You can focus on data for a class. Look for patterns and areas of concern linked to specific standards. Identify any indicators for which the data indicate students’ learning gaps. Based on the data you analyze, write SMART goals to address the concern. Include in part 1: an analysis and description of the school setting (demographics, size, level) and the types of data available for your analysis, the link/s to the tools used to analyze data, a table with the data. Also, display the data in a graphical representation. In addition, write a narrative that names and explains the standards that are areas of concern. Create goal/s to address the areas of concern.
For extra credit (1 point): A: copy the rubric below at the end of your paper. Highlight on the rubric everything you see in your paper. If you notice that you are missing something, make the changes on your paper. Go back to the rubric and add the points. B: Answer these questions: how was this self-assessment process? Have you used it with your students, teachers, or employees? Would you? Why?
