    Great practice but with state tests being so secret and less and less time to evaluate data not always practical If every school had access to the information they needed and the time to create and evaluate assessments the state of education would be so much better.

    I loved the analogies given in the book to explain the why behind different suggestions I also love that with this approach, teachers, students, and parents can know the skills assessed on the test Seems like that is how it should always be

    There were many practical approaches on how to use data Unfortunately, most of the NYS test data is not available for teachers to use There were many ideas presented for PD which I did not find useful Part one of the book was the most useful for me and I marked many pages of ideas to implement.
