Via Edwize, second grade reading teacher Miss Brave explains why she has to record her students’ assessment data all over again:
This morning we had a meeting at which we were told we would have to re-enter each student’s individual results onto a class summary sheet. Had we, in fact, already done this? Yes! But when we asked what happened to the last summary sheet, we were dismissed with a curt, “I don’t know.”
Um… So, okay, let’s review. As part of my job, I did the following:
- Administered the assessment to each individual student.
- Graded the assessment of each individual student.
- Entered the assessment of each individual student onto a class composite summary sheet.
- Handed off the data to people who are supposed to be in charge of entering it into the computer.
And those people, as part of their jobs, did the following:
- Lost my data.
