  12. Sample Agenda using Today’s Work

  13. The Six Stages of the Cycle of Data Inquiry

  14. A data-rich environment

  15. A cohesive data analysis and decision-making process

  16. Why have a data process? • To ensure high-quality outcomes • Seamless transitions • To use data to answer important questions • Structured and systematic • Leading to informed decision making and action Its purpose? What makes it effective?

  17. Data Teams • What is a Data Team? • What is their role and function? • What structures and process do they use? • A climate of trust and openness • Open and honest communication • A sense of belonging • Diversity valued as an asset • Creativity and risk-taking • Ongoing evaluation with ability to self-correct • Members who are interdependent • A consensus decision-making style • Participatory leadership • Do they require ongoing support?

  18. The data team process is continuous.The data team’s work is NEVER complete.

  19. The Six Stages of the Cycle of Data Inquiry

  20. Stage 1: • ASK GOOD QUESTIONS

  21. Stage 1: • ASK GOOD QUESTIONS 1 A. Identify the Focus Area

  22. Stage 1: • ASK GOOD QUESTIONS 1 B. Generate Possible Questions

  23. Possible Questions

  24. Stage 1: • ASK GOOD QUESTIONS 1 C. Narrow the Question to Focus Inquiry

  25. Stage 2: • Collect and Prepare the Data

  26. Stage 2: • Collect and Prepare the Data 2 A. Data Collection Plan

  27. Summary & Wrap-Up • Thinking About Today’s Work… • Give One Learning/Ah HA to your Right-Hand Partner • Take OneLearning/Ah HA from your Left-handed partner • Large Group Quick Share… So, What Occurred Today? Next Steps….. What does the Data Team NEED to Do/Prepare for the November 21 Work Session ? 1. 2. 3. 4.
