Sitting on the Edge

So, I know my corps members and my staff are working furiously tonight to input their data for the MAJOR mid-institute data roll-up tomorrow. Here I sit, anxious as a kid on Christmas eve, wondering what picture it will paint for us tomorrow. I already know students are behind where their growth goals say they should be, but I will be able to compare different collabs, see what the trends say about students but also what they say about rigor. Since teachers are writing their own exit slips, there can be a high amount of variance between what one teacher gives to students and another. Sometimes that difference plays out directly in a collab.

Overall, this marks an important benchmark in our work this summer. The next data point this big is the end of Institute roll up.

Sweet dreams!
