Engaging with Data to improve Student Learning

By Hortensia Prieto

Across all organizations and industries, big data is playing an integral role in progress and innovation —Education is no exception. Data provide quantifiable proof and the substance for meaningful, ongoing dialogue within the educational community.

A Data Driven school is systematically engaged in the collection and analysis of data to make instructional decisions based on the data, develops plan to improve teaching and learning and takes time to reflect about the effectiveness of the plan to start the process again. 

For the last 15 years, San Roberto International School it is a data-driven school. At ISR Directors work side by side with other administrators, teachers, principals and parents to ensure all children achieve (achieve what?). Everyone strives toward common goals. 

Using Data to Improve Learning is a key strategy to be used by teachers in their day-to-day teaching so that the process is useful, empowering and enjoyable, but this is not only for teachers and administrators; students need to incorporate the use of data to make their own plans for improvement to identify strengths and opportunities in their own learning process.  Personal Learning Plans (PLP) have been instrumental to guide students in their own learning plans.

The use of data has helped ISR school leaders to craft a sound blueprint with measurable results for our continuous improvement processes, and to define and design past Strategic Management Plans.  This same strategy will define our new strategic plan for 2021-2025, using the different types of data we have been collecting and analyzing for the last 4 years
