Track and display your class data! This resource is aligned to Texas standards (TEKS) and organized by genre.
Here are the steps I follow to prepare and use it in my classroom:
1. Print on Cardstock
2. Laminate and hang on the wall
3. When students take a test, I use the percentage for each TEK to determine what color to shade in the puzzle piece
Example: Below 60% - Red 61%-79% - Yellow 80% and above - Green
4. Since it is laminated, I can erase and re-shade in when we test over that TEK again.
-You may also choose to print 4 to a page and have students use this to track their own data.
-This tool can build culture around a shared goal of improving on a certain skill. If students know that the whole class struggled with a skill, and then there is an action plan in place to work on it, they will share the feeling of success when it is re-tested and they get to change the color.
- I normally allow the students to color in the pieces. They really think it's special :)
Data is a tool to empower not to instill fear. By not displaying student names, it avoids humiliating students. In my experience, humiliation never leads to growth.
