Professional Development Delivery Options
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga can provide your school or district with training in understanding the collection and analysis of data and application of that data to improve classroom performance.
The current focus on accountability requires a high level of understanding about the value and use of a range of assessments. Our consultations can assist you in implementing processes that will help drive improvement in the classroom and achievement of desired outcomes. These methods include developing needs assessments; presenting workshops that use data to better understand what is happening, daily, in the classroom; providing templates for collecting and analyzing data that can be used in team meetings; and conducting one-on-one evaluations and individual reflection throughout the year.
