Bright Spot Analysis: Using Data to Measure What Worked

One of the biggest questions we hear from educators since distance learning began is whether or not their students were learning and thriving in this new environment. As state and interim assessments were no longer viable options to measure student growth, school leaders had to rely on multiple alternative data sources to reflect on the impact of distance learning on student learning experiences. In partnership with schools, we integrated quantitative and qualitative data to create data stories that revealed both the challenges and opportunities that came with distance learning across each grade and student population. Stakeholders can leverage this data to help formulate what the 2020-2021 school year will look like by learning from families who were able to navigate the shift to distance learning and create stronger support systems for families who struggled during this time.
