Annotated Sample Exam | Practical Data Tool by David White
Global Community Charter School needed a tool that could assist teachers in delivering targeted instruction. The tool needed to be informed by the results of past NYS CCLS exams.
I created the following data presentation to address the school’s needs:
Key Features & Benefits:
Each Common Core learning standard is displayed in-context. This allows teachers to address them more easily.
The packets’ visual design allows the students’ strengths and areas needing improvement to become immediately apparent.
In order to prepare the materials needed for this project, I completed the following steps:
☑ Talked to teachers and school leaders in order to gain a clear understanding of their needs and concerns
☑ Gathered the released questions from the NYS CCLS exam
☑ Gathered the results and item analysis of past exams
Having gathered and edited all needed materials, I then used desktop publishing software to create data packets for school leaders and for each teacher. The packets were used to inform conversations about best practices across different classrooms and across grade levels. Teachers used the packets to plan and deliver targeted instruction.
