Why keep a data binder?
What’s in it?
Student Data Binder: Assessment Tools
- sight word lists,
- SIPPS task cards,
- and the PAST, PSI, PASI
In the tabbed folders, I’ll usually store the master copies of the teacher recording sheets for the assessments.
Student Data Binder: Classroom Data
- District assessments
- Classroom summative assessments
- I-Ready Data
- Any other formal data that pertains to the whole class
Student Data Binder: Individual Student Data
Student Data Binder: Resources and Reference Sheets
The last section of the binder is where all the intervention or decision trees are housed. This is a list of suggested interventions, district-approved interventions, and even enrichment resources. Black-line graphs for tracking progress are stored in extra tab pockets and reference material is housed in page protectors.
Student Data Binder: Setting It Up
Then I ran them through my trusty laminator (like this one here) and trimmed out the tab.
Three-hole punched the tabs so they’ll go in your binder…
You don’t have to go this fancy by any stretch, but I figured if I have to look at it, I want to like what I see. Other options include using a half of a legal size file folder and three hole punch them. Once you put your tab dividers in, start filling this baby up with ALL your data!
Now you’ve got a great Student Data Binder that you can grab at a moments notice! Just don’t forget to keep it updated. 🙂
