Data Inquiry Scenario 1
You are a school principal at an elementary school and are
  concerned about student performance in reading,
  especially in the early grades. Because you are aware of
  the poor performance of your 2nd graders on the CST
  reading test, you would like to begin a screening and
  ongoing monitoring assessment system for the key
  elements of reading beginning in Kindergarten and
  continuing through 2nd grade.You want to design a
  presentation that will incorporate data in ways that will
  help convince the teachers of the importance of this
  initiative.
Data Inquiry Scenario 1
You would like to make a presentation about your school’s
  2nd grade performance using last year’s CST reading data.
  You heard of a reliable source for CST data that visualizes
  the data in a clear and understandable manner and would
  like to build some slides that will clearly demonstrate 2nd
  grade CST performance to the teachers at your school.

The data visualization on the previous page would probably
 not be good to copy and paste into a presentation to
 teachers to demonstrate the low 37% proficient or
 advanced 2nd grade students data because the table is
 difficult to see; requires the addition of % proficient or
 advanced and so on.

However, the data can be copied right from the website and
 pasted into Excel for data visualization.

This is still a lot of work!

How Could the Data Presentations be
Improved?
Improvement 1:
The presentation needs to include some narrative otherwise
  it is an autopsy. The first narrative improvement would be
  to include a “What” for the presentation. Another name for
  the “What” would be a Finding.
Improvement 2:
The second narrative improvement would be a “So what?”
  component. Why is the finding important?
Improvement 3:
The third narrative improvement would be a “What Next?”
  component. What action should we take next based on the
  finding and the identification of the importance of the
  Finding?
Improved Data Presentation
                                                        Finding: Only 37% of
                                                           our 2nd grade
                                                           students scored
                                                           proficient on the ELA
                                                           CST in 2009
                                                         So What: Our school
                                                            district has a goal of
                                                            100% of all 2nd
                                                            graders reading at
                                                            grade level by the end
                                                            of second grade.


What Next: If we could implement a comprehensive reading screening and ongoing
  monitoring system in Grades K-2, we might be able to identify student reading
  problems in early grades, diagnose, and intervene to support student reading
  skills at an earlier grade improving student reading achievement by 2nd grade.
Data Inquiry Scenario 2
You would like to share research with your teacher teams
  about the correlation between letter recognition
  (alphabetic principle) and comprehension.You bring a
  table that demonstrates a strong correlation between
  student understanding of alphabetic principle and student
  comprehension as a way to emphasize the importance of
  teaching the 5 key elements of reading in the early grades.
Data Inquiry Scenario 2




So what is correlation?
What is Correlation?
Correlation is a measure used to describe the relationship
 between two or more variables. If there is a correlation
 between variables, that does not mean there is also a
 cause and effect.

The Pearson correlation coefficient is used to determine
 whether two variables are correlated. The coefficient
 varies between -1.00 and +1.00. The Pearson correlation
 coefficient measures both the direction and strength of
 the correlation. The next slide shows various types of
 correlation through a scatter plot visualization of data.

You can read more about correlation in the Schools and Data Book , chapter 4, pages
  33-35.

Data Inquiry Scenario 2
How might you use correlations in your work as a school
 principal?



What are some specific questions that you might ask that
 use correlation?



How would you communicate correlation results to
 different stakeholder groups?
Data Inquiry Scenario 2
Is there a correlation between 2nd grade performance on
   the Oral Reading Fluency Assessment in the Spring and
   their performance on the ELA CST in the Spring?

Let’s do a scatter plot first.

Open the file called: Dibels_Example.
The chart needs to be better organized and prepared for
 integration into a PowerPoint presentation to 2nd grade
 teachers.

                                                             to screen, monitor and
                                                             intervene to support
                                                             students who do not meet
                                                             fluency targets is getting
                                                             results for students.

What Next: We will need to continue to support the improvement in fluency
  performance for our 2nd grade students to ensure that all of our 2nd grade students
  achieve Fluency Targets. We will explore the use of an intervention model developed
  and tested by the University of Oregon.
Data Inquiry Scenario 3
You may want to use Excel to determine the Pearson
  product Moment Correlation between Spring Fluency
  Scores and 2nd grade Student Performance on the CST.

The next slide shows this correlation.
Data Inquiry Scenario 3




The calculation of the Pearson Product Number is 0.64. This
  represents a very high correlation. We will learn more about
  correlation in our next session.
10 Key Elements to High Quality Data
Presentations
1.    Make sure that the data presentation is linked to a narrative that
      includes What, So What, and What Next.
2.    Make sure that the title is clear and conveys the information that
      is presented in the chart.
3.    Identify the source and creator of the data.
4.    Inclusion of reference lines or points as well as opportunities to
      compare variables.
5.    Make sure that the x and y axes are properly labeled.
6.    Make sure that the y axis includes the full range of the data being
      presented.
7.    Make sure that all elements of the data presentation contribute to
      helping the reader interpret the data.
8.    No chart junk.
9.    Avoid the autopsy.
10.   Make sure that presentation of data is complete and does not
      cherry pick data to unfairly support arguments or ideas.
10 Pitfalls to High Quality Data
Presentations
1.    Modifying the range of the y axis to inaccurately amplify
      differences in the data.
2.    Inclusion of a lot of chart junk like 3D images that impede
      the ability of the reader to interpret the data.
3.    No identification of the source or creator of the data.
4.    No linkage of the data presentation to the narrative.
5.    Data presented without opportunities to link to key
      reference line or to compare variables.
6.    Data presented as an autopsy.
7.    Selective omission of pertinent data in order to advance an
      argument.
8.    Unlabeled or poorly labeled axes.
9.    No legend when one is required.
10.   Inadequate, inaccurate, or incomplete title.
Data Inquiry Resources
Schools and Data. 2007 by Theodore B. Creighton. Corwin Press. Thousand
  Oaks, California.
  This book provides the basis for all of the Data Inquiry Modules. It introduces
  administrators to educational data; basic statistical techniques; and how to use Excel
  and SPSS to employ the statistical techniques. It also had online tutorials that
  demonstrate how to use Excel and SPSS to carry out the analyses.

Visual Explanations: Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative. 1997 by
   Edward Tufte. Graphics Press. Chesire, Connecticut.
  This book describes design strategies – the proper arrangement in space and time
  of images, words, and numbers – for presenting information about motion, process,
  mechanism, and cause and effect. It provides many beautiful historical and current
  examples of data visualization and resulting actions.

The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint: Pitching Out Corrupts Within. 2006 by Edward
  Tufte. Graphics Press. Chesire, Connecticut.
  This book describes how data visualization using PowerPoint forces one into a
  cognitive style that is aligned more with a corporate pitch than a thoughtful
  opportunity to reflect on important ideas. This is a “must read” for anyone who
  uses PowerPoint.
