NEW Data-Driven Instruction: Using Assessment to Guide Student Goals

Date: Monday, April 12, 2021
Time: 4:00pm-6:00pm
Location: Virtual
Instructor: Jessica Romaniello, MS Ed & Jessica Sorna, MS Ed
Code: DDI-P211
Fee: $120

An evidence-based multisensory reading program incorporates explicit teaching of foundational skills with consistent assessment of student progress. Effective, continuous use of data in the classroom is a powerful tool to target student needs and inform instructional decisions. Jessica Romaniello, MS Ed and Jessica Sorna, MS Ed, will explain and model assessment tools, including the PAF Reading Program proficiency tests to monitor student decoding, fluency, spelling, handwriting, and reading comprehension. These instruments guide teacher planning and instruction toward promoting student progress.  Participants will be able to practice administering and analyzing test results in order to develop appropriate goals for their students. Opportunities for teacher collaboration and presenter feedback will enable participants to immediately implement data-driven instruction in their own classrooms.

For teachers of grades 1-3 and special education settings.
