Show me the data!

Show me the data! Teachers, Never ever be shy at showing off the data for a student. It's not supposed to be perfect. It's not supposed to always show steady progress. It's absolutely 100% supposed to show the ups and downs, the struggles and successes, and most important... it's the evidence we need to make smart decisions!

Parents, you can't decide if the part of an IEP are working without the data. Data for EVERYTHING. It doesn't have to complex. It just needs to give you a clear picture of what is and what is not happening for your child.

Data takes out emotions.
Data builds confidence in decisions.
Data is not optional.
