Surviving the Datapocalypse
Classroom grades, state test scores, online programs, behavioral data, and benchmark data. It’s all just too much to manage! Teacher preparation programs due a great job of teaching us how to analyze and interpret data...they don’t do a good job at telling us how to manage our data. This lack of management leads to teachers feeling overwhelmed with data and ultimately leads to the Datapocalypse happening!
In this session, we will look at how educators can use Google Sheets to reduce the amount of time spent processing their data and increase the amount of time spent analyzing their data.
