The San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) has recently purchased a data management system called DataDirector. DataDirector stores information for each student in allowing individual teacher to run analysis reports, store assessment information, share exams, and other data processing features. The school district wants teachers to use this program to collect data and increase collaboration within departments at the site and district level. SDUHSD would like to see an increase in collaboration to assist with the increase in student achievement.
Formative assessments, and the data collected, should be used to assist teachers in making decisions about instruction and help increase student performance in the core subject areas of Mathematics, Science, Social Science and English. The Western Accreditation School Committee (WASC) has recommended to all schools in the district to collect formative assessment data for analysis.
This instructional package includes the discussion of the following features of DataDirector:
- Logging in for the first time
- Navigate DataDirector
- Creating exams using DataDirector’s existing test bank
- Uploading data to DataDirector
These features will allow the learner (teachers) access and use the most relevant features of DataDirector to start the collaboration process.
