Reflection: Data Analysis Map Scales - Section 1: Do Now

 

 

As explained above, a recent professional development session at this point in the school year (02/2015) pushed me to reconsider the pacing of my lessons, especially as we get closer to the end of year state tests.

I've used data from our most recent mock math exam to identify the top three items most students answered correctly. Then, I re-wrote similar questions, changing a value within the problem or the question included. I've tailored this Do Now for the group of students I have this year so that I can use at least 5 minutes of class to dive deeply into the concepts for which they've shown mastery during our discussion of the answers.

In a separate reflection included in the "closing" section of this lesson, I also explain how I use the data to review commonly missed items.
