Data Identify Challenges
Prior to writing your analysis, reflect on the following questions as informed by equity and social justice lenses:
- How does the data identify challenges or gaps related to your identified problem or issue?
- How does the data identify any strengths or positive outcomes that need to be acknowledged in relation to your defined problem or issue? [If there are no positive outcomes, explain that in the narrative.]
- What are the limitations, if any, of your conclusions posed by the data?
Organize your data (CAEP A.1.1;) so that it helps you accurately interpret the results (spreadsheets, tables, graphs, charts, etc.). Write an analysis that explains the gaps in the data in relation to equity and social justice concerns. The gaps are determined by synthesizing the differences between the results the school is getting with its current processes, and the results the school should want to achieve (what is and what should be).
