(Please note that in lieu of text  – as I have not purchased the text yet – I have provided three sample discussion questions.)

The Data-Driven Success Story of Worthington Elementary in your text demonstrates what it means to be data-driven. As you look at the results and the changes over time, the hard work of the principal and staff paid off.

  • In the school where you are now, what changes do you propose that may need to take place in order to see this kind of “skyrocketing scores?”
  • Maybe you have had an experience similar to the one at Worthington. What kinds of changes were put in place at your school to see this happen?
  • What suggestions can you make to your classmates from your school’s experience in raising test scores?
  • Perhaps you have seen your school start out well with well-intentioned goals, but enthusiasm and motivation have waned. What may have been the reason and how could you change that as an administrator?

Your initial response is due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
