Digital Student Data Notebooks
My Kindergarten English as a Second language students are analyzing, tracking, and reflecting upon their reading data from our state reading assessments in a digital data notebook. My students complete a statewide reading assesment called MClass reading 3D, TRC and Dibels. They are asked to identify sounds in words, letter naming fluency, sight words, and read leveled texts. I created a personalized digital student data notebook using one of the Pages book templates. I shared the individual books to students with Apple Classroom and personalize them with students' pictures on the cover of each book. After conferencing with each student they used an Apple Pencils to annotate and color on the bar graphs according to their assessment scores. Students used the same color coding system from MClass when annotating their data. Ex. Green – I know it! Red – I need a lot of practice! The meaning of each color can be seen on the second page of the book. Students also tracked the sight words they knew by reading them aloud and circling them with a red or green color. Students used the audio feature to make goals in the scores or reading levels they would like to achieve for the second quarter. As well as a strategy they would use to improve their scores. Ex. “I will practice my letters and letter sounds.” I am excited to see students track their 2nd quarter data and understand areas of improvement. These personalized data notebooks will also be shared with parents during parent-teacher conferences. The majority of my Kinder ESL students enter our school year with little academic background knowledge and it's usually their first time away from home. Before tracking our data we discussed how even if you are using red or have a score of 0 it's ok! We are working hard practicing and using our personal goals to grow. I hope that by allowing students to track and monitor their data they will understand the importance of practicing these new skills and creating/reaching goals.
I have also created a WIDA (World-class Instructional Design and Assessment) digital data notebook. Educators who use this English language proficiency assessment may ask students to track their WIDA assessment scores within each domain as well as their composite score. Students identify their highest and lowest language domains and create an audio recording with a growth goal of how they plan to improve.
