EyeOnData drives educators to be persistent in improving student achievement. It allows educators to improve student performance by highlighting areas of weaknesses and focus. EyeOnData provides valuable information for teachers about students’ performance before they even arrive in class. This immediate access to data allows for interventions and modifications that are essential to capture and maintain students’ interests.

Brief Program Description

EyeOnData is a real-time digital data collection and communication platform—essentially an instant data input and immediate data analysis system which ultimately enables us to impact the academic, social and emotional development of students.

Summary

EyeOnData is essentially an instant data input and immediate data analysis system which ultimately enables us to impact the academic, social and emotional development of students. EyeOnData was designed to preserve rigor and to maintain high expectations for all students. The system is used for tracking, monitoring, and analyzing student’s performance instantly, which by definition improves transparency, providing teachers access to students’ performance as they transition from classroom-to-classroom.

Evidence

We connect all faculty and teachers during the inquiry meetings via Google Hangout. During these meetings, teachers engage in lesson planning, analyze student work via the Atlas Protocol, and discussing students’ social and emotional needs. They also provide teacher-driven professional development, which serves to reinforce the “School of One” and collaboration.

On the eve of Quality Review, we realized that most teachers were not collaborating with each other, nor were they grading students on a consistent scale. From that moment onward, we decided that in order to meet our goal of using data-driven instruction, we needed all teachers to begin to use the same data collection sheet. In effect, the following domains were addressed:

● Domain 1: Students Work on IEP goals

●Domain 2: Individual& Group Work-- All lesson plans include an Individual and Group work component

●Domain 3: DOK questions (minimum 3 levels required)

● Domain 4: Homework Completion

●Domain 5: Reflection/Rubrics—all students are completing rubrics after each lesson

●Domain 6: PBIS

Since implementing these changes we have already seen improvements in student behavior and Math/Literacy Assessments. The Scantron Performance Series results indicate that Math scores increase from 3.76% to 5.6%. In Reading, there was an increase from 2.5% to 3.2%, this data follows the implementation of the interactive Language! Live literacy program. Programs such as Shakespeare, ProjectREAD, AIS and STEP Ahead after school programs have served as interventions that boosted reading scores. Specially, students who participated in these programs increased 2.34% (Math) and 1.63% (Reading) compared to those who did not.

The Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) is implemented as an incentive and rewards system for students. The PBIS store is stocked to reflect students’ preferences and rewards choices. Each student can earn a maximum of 35 points daily, (175 weekly). Points are rewarded on three criteria: attendance, participation and behavior. Based on a number of points students earn, they are rewarded with tickets: gold, silver and bronze, which is used to purchase items from the store. Since September, the number of students who earned a golden ticket increased by 8%. Silver increased by 15% and bronze 17%. Currently, 100% of students earn a ticket by the end of the week.
