Once all students have been benchmarked, we put up our data wall. This year, language arts teachers filled out a card for each student with their student ID numbers, benchmark score for the fall, and put stickers on cards to indicate any circumstances of that student beyond the norm. A parent volunteer put up all of the cards, so this year's data wall is already up and running. It's a great visual for all staff to see where our school's data is. Below are a few pictures of our data wall:
A data wall is a great way for everyone to visualize where our school is at as far as student reading levels.
