Using Data to Understand Students’ Needs and to Inform Practice

The purpose of HLP webinar #3 was to address HLP #1—Collaborate with professionals to increase student success and HLP# 4—Using multiple sources of information to develop a comprehensive understanding of a student’s strengths and needs. Through this lens, the session’s leaders demonstrated how various forms of student data can be reviewed and evaluated to identify students’ strengths and areas for improvement. Further, we highlighted how those data can be used to inform instructional decisions through a collaborative/co-teaching model.
