Data-Driven Decisions Workshops

Standards First in Reading, Mathematics, and Science TEKS/SEs

The Kilgo Data-Driven Decisions workshops demonstrate how to use STAAR results as a diagnostic tool for charting students’ academic journey in college readiness, grades 3-12, by analyzing student performance data on the Kilgo-coded Power College Readiness TEKS/SEs for early intervention and identifying gaps in programs and resources.

Power College Readiness TEKS/SEs. The Kilgo Analytics Data workshops focus on Margaret Kilgo’s current research coding the TEKS/SEs for alignment in reading and mathematics, grades 3-12, with the new and revised 2016 SAT and 2014 ACT; and coding the Science TEKS/SEs for the Science SAT II and Advanced Placement (AP) in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.

Included with the workshop materials is an electronic version of the Data-Driven Decisions Snapshot Charts.

Kilgo Analytics Data-Driven Workshops include how to:

  1. Use an analytics data process for Power College Readiness TEKS/SEs to plan interventions, grades 3-12, using a Standards First Model;
  2. Use STAAR results as diagnostic data for charting the academic journey of students toward college readiness by analyzing student achievement data on the Kilgo-coded Power College Readiness TEKS/SEs in reading, mathematics, and science, grades 3-12;
  3. Use STAAR data for strengths and weakness in student performance in the standards, TEKS/SE, to evaluate programs, materials, and resources;
  4. Use STAAR/EOC data by TEKS/SEs to determine curriculum and program strengths and weaknesses, plan interventions and set priorities;
  5. Accurately interpret the TEKS/SEs to find exemplar lessons in existing programs, textbooks and materials;
  6. Identify gaps in instructional programs and resources; and
  7. Evaluate resources, textbook and Internet program alignment to state standards prior to purchase.
