  1. Strategies to Embed and Track Formative Assessment
    In this session participants reflect on the different types of assessments used in our schools and consider the role that each plays in maximising student progress and achievement. Often teachers over‐rely on summative assessment, but formative assessment and feedback has a far greater impact on student achievement. Learn More

  2. Using and Analysing Data

    In this session participants will learn about the types of data that are used in Australian schools and learn how to interpret and analyse data, including NAPLAN data. This workshop covers the benefits of triangulating data to ensure the reliability of the trends, and to maximise the impact that data analysis has on the needs of the young people in classrooms and departments.

  3. Developing Data-Informed Learners
    Data has the power to inform and change pedagogy, and consequently the outcomes for the young people in our care. To maximise the impact that data can have with young people, one of the most powerful ways it can be used is in conversations with students. Educators know about the power of feedback, but they often need support in developing strategies to discuss data in feedback with students. This session will provide some possible approaches for engaging students in data conversations and discuss the ways that teachers and school leaders can build data-informed learners. Learn More

  4. Developing an Action Plan for Data-Informed Change
    Data must make it’s way off educators’ laptops and data walls and into tangible action and change for students in classrooms. This session will step through an 11-stage process of converting data to measurable change and will allow participants to set goals for their own action plan for their context. Each of the stages for change will be unpacked during this session, allowing for leaders to consider the way in which they can create an action plan for, and lead data-informed changed in their schools. The challenges of each stage will be discussed, as well as possible strategies for approaching each step and overcoming hurdles. Learn More

  5. Characteristics of Effective Data-Informed Leadership
    There is much discussion about the attributes that contribute to effective school leaders, but the existing research and literature often doesn’t consider leadership through the lens of the data-informed landscape. Middle and senior leaders in this context have the added complication of teacher perceptions on data, the data literacy of teachers, middle and senior leaders, and the different ways that are available to measure and track change. This session is useful for middle or senior leaders, or those aspiring to these roles in the future. It will consider the ways in which leaders mediate the changing data- informed landscape and lead staff through data-informed change. Learn More

  6. Using and Analysing Data in Australian Schools
    Australian teachers and leaders are expected to use data to monitor student progress and achievement to maximise the impact that they have in classrooms and schools. However, university degrees are only just now beginning to catch up to this need, and as a result, many teachers in Australia have never undergone training on how to use and analyse data. This session is for educators who want to build their skills in using and analysing data. It will cover the different types of data that are available in schools, the concept of triangulation, and propose some ways that educators can ask about, and begin to act on data. Learn More
