  • Did staff evidence any ownership of the data, i.e., did they see the relationship of what they do in their classrooms as impacting the data?
  • What would you do differently next time you led this discussion?
  • What are your next steps for engaging staff in data analysis?

. Include in your portfolio the following products:
  • Graphs used in the discussion
