Big Ideas About TEaCHING & Learning: CharterSmarter: From Data To Information To Knowledge (2012 GCSA Conference Presentation)

Did you know that ...

  1. There were 53 startup charter schools in Georgia during the 2011-2012 school year?
  2. Startup charter schools in Atlanta, DeKalb, Fulton, and Gwinnett had higher percentages of their students meet or exceed 2012 CRCT (Criterion Referenced Competency Test) standards than the traditional schools in those districts?
  3. 3 Georgia startup charter schools had 100% of its students meet or exceed standards on the Math I EOCT (End-of-Course Test) during 2011-2012?
  4. Microsoft Excel pivot tables can be used to quickly and easily organize and summarize large volumes of data into simple tables (and graphs)? (SEE EXAMPLE BELOW)

Discover what GCSA is learning about Georgia's charter schools - and the tools that support this analysis - at our upcoming 2012 state conference (October 4-5, 2012 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Building B – Atlanta, GA.) ...

CharterSmarter: From Data To Information To Knowledge
(Thursday 10/4/2012 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM)
(Derrick Brown, Presenter)

This workshop will introduce techniques and strategies that can convert mountains of assessment and enrollment data into concise, informative summaries suitable for sharing with all school stakeholders. Workshop participants will review and discuss Georgia’s Charter Schools: By The Numbers (an annual data brief published by GCSA - in online and print versions), as well as the tools used to produce both publications (GCSA’s Performance Management System, Microsoft Excel, and Tableau).
