Topic outline

  • General

    Educators are being asked to track data now more than ever.  Questions arise such as "What am I looking for?", "Where do I find it?", and "What am I going to do with it?".  Utilizing a web-based data warehouse, such as DataDirector, allows educators within our consortium have the ability to access data for current and past school years (trend analysis), give both formative and summative classroom assessments (item analysis) and data-mine both state and national assessments such as MEAP, MI-Access, MEAP Access, MME and ACT.
