Reading and analysing data

It is essential that you are able to accurately read and interpret data so that you know where students are in their learning and are able to set goals and plan for optimum teaching and learning.

Test scores should not be used in isolation to calculate the achievement level of a student. Any test is a snapshot, and the results should be considered along with a range of other evidence. See Making a teacher judgment.

It useful to have students analyse their tests and graph their results over time. This record of progress provides strong motivation for students to set goals in their learning.
